Syracuse-Area Hospitals Implement EHR Systems

As of this month, three hospitals in the Syracuse, N.Y., area have fully implemented electronic health records systems, according to a WRVO report.

St. Joseph's Hospital Health Center, SUNY Upstate Medical University and Golisano Children's Hospital are now all utilizing EHRs.

SUNY Upstate Medical University invested $70 million in switching over to the electronic system, but CEO John McCabe said it is worth it.

"I think in the long run this is a transformation in how we do medical care and how we collect information and protect our patients," he said in the report. "Just the quality and safety spin-offs over time are well worth the investment now."
