Cedars-Sinai Health System has selected Encore Health Resources, a provider in advanced health-information-technology (HIT) services, to partner in the organization-wide implementation of the health system’s multi-million dollar electronic medical record (EMR) project.

Encore will partner with Cedars-Sinai to plan and implement the next scheduled phase of CS-Link, which will focus on expanding computerized physician order entry (CPOE) and physician documentation at the hospital.

CS-Link is a multi-year, organization-wide initiative that will merge the health system’s existing financial and clinical applications into a single, integrated application suite.

The Encore partnership with Cedars-Sinai is focused on enabling the health system to achieve complete success in its CPOE implementation, putting the necessary tools in place to maintain such success for years to come.
