Yuma, Arizona site launches eOMIS EHR

The Arizona State Prison Complex in Yuma (ASPC-Yuma), in partnership with Marquis Software, Arizona Department of Corrections (ADOC), and Corizon Health, went live with the eOMIS Electronic Health Record (EHR) on December 9. The roll-out of eOMIS at ASPC-Yuma brings a total of six Arizona sites live with eOMIS. These six sites are responsible for the care of more than 28,000 patients. Marcie Burr, Director of Operations was on site for the go live, and the site leadership team did an excellent job with ensuring staff attended training, achieving a 99% attendance rate!

eOMIS is a full feature EHR solution that interfaces with lab, radiology, and pharmacy systems. The project and clinical teams have worked closely with Marquis to create a product that embraces the Corizon Health standard of care. Many Corizon Health clinical tools such as the chronic care and intake forms, Nursing Evaluation Tools (NETS) and Mental Health Evaluation Tools (METS), have been integrated within the system to ease the transition from paper records to an EHR. In addition to the EHR, eOMIS contains an Electronic Medication Administration Record (eMAR) that is interfaced directly with PharmaCorr for ease of medication ordering, receiving, and administration.

Thanks to the onsite leadership team of Karen Barcklay, MD, Lori Johnson, FHA, Madeline Lowell, AFHA, and Julie Hampton, DON for being great champions of the EHR by attending each training session and supporting the entire go live event. The project team also thanks Heather Sullivan, LPN from Perryville and Christine Pereira, AFHA from Florence for assisting their fellow Corizon Health peers by supporting the Yuma go live. The roll out of eOMIS is on schedule to conclude at the end of March 2015 with the roll out to the Phoenix facility.
