Underlying everything that we do at MACIPA are healthcare Information Technology (IT) systems. The IT staff support, train and maintain physician electronic health records. They also manage the IT systems associated with them, such as health information exchange and patient portals where patients can access test results. IT staff have developed interfaces to connect the electronic health record with other systems such as Mount Auburn Hospital’s laboratory, radiology and discharge results and notes. The IT department also serves MACIPA staff, maintaining staff email, electronic files, referral management, financial and clinical support systems.
IT is a key resource in defining and implementing cost-effective technology-based solutions in support of MACIPA’s objectives of providing the highest quality care at appropriate cost in a manner that maximizes physician and patient satisfaction.
