Nashville General Hospital Teams with Oracle Health for EHR Implementation
CommunityWorks selected to replace multiple systems with one, unified electronic health record
Nashville Aug. 14, 2023: Nashville General Hospital, a national leading public safety-net hospital serving Nashville, Tennessee and Davidson County, is now collaborating with Oracle Health and has selected CommunityWorks to better support its clinical, financial, and operational needs. Following implementation of the electronic health records (EHR), clinicians will be able to access patient records from the 150-bed hospital and more than 20 outpatient and clinic settings across the county.
“We are so pleased to work with Oracle Health on this very important project,” said Nashville General Hospital chief executive officer, Dr. Joseph Webb, D.Sc., FACHE. “This collaboration will not only enhance patient care, but also reduce health inequities in our community, improve the caregiver experience and increase profitability for the hospital.”
Oracle Health’s CommunityWorks provides a comprehensive, integrated user experience for both patients and clinicians to meet the specific needs of smaller hospital operations. The ability to share information across facilities and the continuum of care helps to keep hospitals connected to their patients and provide a higher standard of care. Today, more than 300 hospitals in 46 states are more effectively and efficiently treating patients closer to home using CommunityWorks.
“Oracle Health continues to work across diverse healthcare settings and care models to help ensure individuals in all communities have access to high-quality healthcare,” said Travis Dalton, executive vice president, Oracle Health. “By adding the EHR across its system, Nashville General Hospital will benefit from streamlined clinical workflows, improved patient care, and enhanced operational efficiencies.”
