Valley View Hospital unveils new information system
August 30, 2010
Valley View Hospital in Glenwood Springs has begun using a new health care information system called Meditech 6.0.
Valley View claimes to be the first hospital on Colorado’s Western Slope to use the advanced technology. A press release states the system will allow the hospital to have integrated Electronic Medical Records, which can keep track of a patient’s entire health and medical history in a computerized, electronic format.
By keeping this information electronically, patient data including lab results, prescribed medications, allergies, medical conditions and other parts of a patient’s medical history can be retrieved more quickly, improving patient safety and quality of care.
