Clinical Information Systems

ITS supports a variety of systems and products within the clinical information functions of Saint Louis University and SLUCare, including PowerPath.

Additionally, ITS services the technology needs of physicians, clinical staff and researchers.

PowerPath

Impac Software's anatomic pathology system provides an intuitive user interface that streamlines workflow and daily operations for laboratories and offers surgical pathology, dermatopathology, cytology and autopsy services.

PowerPath's versatile case-centric view ensures quick access to requisition data, case history, concurrent cases and billing information. PowerPath software also includes advanced materials processing, document management, clinical pathology management, immunohistochemistry, enhanced outreach reporting, imaging, internet reporting and dermatopathology.

PowerPath's open systems integration provides laboratories with a system designed specifically for anatomic pathology while coexisting easily in any HIT environment. The system works well for a variety of needs, including:

  • Implementations that require integration to a laboratory information system (LIS)
  • Hospital information systems (HIS)
  • Physician's office electronic medical record (EMR)
  • Stand-alone billing systems
  • Whole slide imaging systems
  • Slide stainers
  • Several other applications and devices

ITS installs the software on the user's workstation and sets up the user account on the server. Access depends on the user's position and determines what data they have access to and what they can do with that data.

GE Centricity Business

SLUCare uses GE Centricity Business as its core practice management system, which consists of scheduling, billing and collections applications for more than 400 users. Written in MUMPS programming language and running on InterSystems Cache, GE is a leading provider of software, services, and technologies for all healthcare provider organizations.

EpicCare Ambulatory

SLUCare's electronic health record (EHR) initiative revolutionizes the way health care information is managed. EHR improves the quality and safety of patient care, resulting in better health outcomes and higher patient satisfaction including the efficiency of patient care, health professional education, clinical research and regulatory compliance within SLUCare.

This system permits improved access to important clinical information, direct entry of the data by physicians and clinical staff and clinical decision support tools at the point of care.

HR Training for EpicCare

All physicians, clinical staff, medical students, residents and other health professionals are required to complete a combination of instructor-led and e-learning training courses before receiving access to EpicCare. To register for leader-led training courses, please contact the SLUCare Call Center at 314-977-4440.
