Holy Cross Hospital's Integrated Electronic Health Record System
Holy Cross Hospital's integrated system combines computerized physician order entry (CPOE) with an electronic health record, incorporating physician and nurse notes as well as lab results and radiologic images. Holy Cross Hospital's system, an initiative known internally as Genesis, electronically houses the information a physician needs to care for his or her patients, eliminating the need to use multiple systems and multiple logins. A physician portal makes the system securely accessible to physicians anywhere -- inside the hospital, or remotely at physicians' offices or even home computers.
Special Information for Apple Users
Several members of our physician community have chosen Apple computers for their ease of use, quality and reliability. However, many of the clinical applications we run are only certified to run in a Microsoft Windows® environment and Microsoft Internet Explorer®.
Apple computers and the Macintosh Operating System (OS) are not supported by Trinity Information Services, and while we are continuously working on better serving all of our physicians, we have no current plans to support Macintosh computers.
Notwithstanding, we encourage Apple users within our physician community to explore ways in which to make their computers compatible with as many of our applications as possible. There are several applications that may facilitate compatibility by emulating a windows environment, and hardware add-ons that can run Windows® while still preserving the Macintosh OS within the same device.
While we cannot guarantee that our environment will be compatible if you were to choose any of the solutions below, we suggest that you consult Apple on its website,www.apple.com, where they have suggestions on how to make Apple computers useful in a Windows® environment.
Please visit the websites for popular emulator software manufacturers, such as Parallels, at http://www.parallels.com , and VMWare Fusion, at www.vmware.com/products/fusion which allow you to install the Windows® operating system in your Apple computer.
