CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- (BUSINESS WIRE) -- PeraHealth, Inc. is pleased to announce that Riverside Health System, a 5-hospital system serving eastern Virginia and headquartered in Newport News, VA, is the latest hospital system to elect PeraTrend as a real-time clinical decision support tool. Riverside will be the first system to support the integration of PeraTrend into Siemens’ Soarian Electronic Health Record, and is serving as the founding member of PeraHealth’s Soarian Collaborative.
“We are thrilled at the opportunity to work with Riverside across their multiple patient safety goals,” said Stephanie Alexander, Chief Executive Officer of Charlotte-based PeraHealth, Inc. “Integrating PeraTrend into the Soarian platform will not only bring real time clinical decision support to the bedside, but will also underpin a number of strategic initiatives across Riverside and underscores the system’s innovative approach to patient care.”
“Riverside has been focused aggressively on several key areas: practicing evidenced-based care, reducing costs, improving patient satisfaction, reducing harm and saving lives…or what we in total call the Riverside Care Difference,” said Barry Gross, M.D., Riverside EVP and Chief Medical Officer. “We believe the real time clinical decision support of PeraTrend integrated into Soarian will accelerate our performance as a QUEST member, and bring further value to our Soarian investment,” Doctor Gross continued.
Riverside Health System is also the founding member of the PeraHealth Soarian Collaborative, a program where hospitals working off the Soarian platform will share best practices, research and development opportunities related to PeraTrend. “The successful launch of this Collaborative caps off a very exciting quarter for our firm: three new customers in the last 30 days, very high interest in our Pediatric Collaborative and the publication of the Rothman Index algorithm in the Journal of Biomedical Informatics,” noted Ms. Alexander.
