Pittsburgh, Pa., February 26, 2010 — dbMotion, a provider of health interoperability solutions, has been chosen by Northwest Hospital & Medical Center in Seattle, Washington to create a single interoperable electronic patient record across numerous information technology environments for both in-hospital and ambulatory care providers.

“Above all else, Northwest Hospital is committed to providing safe, quality patient care,” said Bill Schneider, president and CEO of Northwest Hospital. “dbMotion’s solution will be a key element in helping us connect everyone on a patient’s care team, no matter where they are, and giving them access to the critical information they need to provide comprehensive, coordinated treatment. In the end, that means better outcomes and a more satisfying experience for our patients.”
dbMotion, in partnership with Allscripts, will create a complete solution spanning Northwest Hospital’s inpatient, acute care environment and outpatient providers in its network, providing physicians and clinicians across the continuum of care with a single electronic patient record. The solution will connect many systems, including Northwest Hospital’s ambulatory electronic health record, Siemens, PICIS ED and GE Radiology, among others.
