Crittenton Hospital Medical Center to Participate in United Physicians myWorkspace(R) Initiative
BINGHAM FARMS and ROCHESTER HILLS, Mich., Oct. 18 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- On September 18, 2007 Crittenton Hospital Medical Center CEO, Lynn Orfgen, announced an agreement with United Physicians (UP) encouraging all Crittenton staff physicians to enroll in United Physicians myWorkspace(R). Because today's health care environment is changing to a data driven system, Mr. Orfgen says it is imperative for hospitals and physicians to closely work together, to share information and make it easier for doctors to work at and communicate with the hospital. myWorkspace(R) enables you to do this. myWorkspace(R) is a secure, easy-to-use web portal where UP doctors can access multiple clinical applications all in one place, from a single login point. It was created and customized by UP doctors and their staffs and is ready instantly -- without the time and expense of installing a full EMR. myWorkspace(R) houses e-prescribing, electronic archiving and faxing, online labs and connection to the Crittenton Hospital Cerner Electronic Medical Records. In addition to single sign on access to clinical applications, health plans and hospitals, myWorkspace(R) allows UP physicians to communicate and share information with each other through a secure network. Doctors are able to email and share files in a secure environment that enhances the quality of the delivery of patient care while reducing overall cost. Not only do physicians benefit, but so do office managers, medical assistants, lab techs and patients.
As always, United Physicians is leading the way in technological advances -- just ask the physicians at Crittenton Hospital Medical Center.
