MedStar Health, Inc. Key Developments

MedStar Health Signs Expanded Agreement with Cerner

MedStar Health announced an expanded partnership with a seven-year agreement that will streamline operations, help improve the quality of patient care and develop technologies that align with MedStar's vision to be the trusted leader in caring for people and advancing health. The new alignment will allow access to all Cerner solutions and services throughout MedStar's 10 hospitals and 3,000 plus beds, as well as the ambulatory and post-acute network. Cerner will provide MedStar an expanded enterprise Electronic Health Record (EHR) that will provide clinicians seamless access to patient information across the continuum of care. Through the new alliance with Cerner, MedStar plans to further the work of the MedStar Institute for Innovation by aligning more closely around technology innovation. MedStar cares for more than a half million patients each year across Maryland and the Washington, D.C., region in its hospitals, urgent care and ambulatory care facilities, and physician offices. As the larger healthcare provider in Maryland and the Washington, D.C., region, MedStar's 10 hospitals, the MedStar Institute for Innovation, MedStar Physician Partners, and other programs and services are recognized regionally and nationally for excellence in medical care. Many of MedStar's hospitals are continuously recognized as Best Hospitals by U.S.News and World Report. Recently, the health system also was named one of the nation's Most Wired by Hospital and Health Networks Magazine.

CVS Caremark Enters into New Clinical Affiliation with MedStar Health

CVS Caremark announced it has entered into a new clinical affiliation with MedStar Health, which will enhance access to high-quality, affordable health care services for patients. Through this clinical affiliation, MedStar Health patients will continue to have access to clinical support, medication counseling, chronic disease monitoring and wellness programs at CVS/pharmacy stores and MinuteClinic. In addition, CVS Caremark will provide critical prescription and visit information to the affiliated health care providers through the integration of secured electronic medical record (EMR) systems. The participating health care providers will receive data on interventions conducted by CVS pharmacists to improve medication adherence for their patients. The affiliation also encourages collaboration between the health care providers and MinuteClinic providers to improve coordination of care for patients seen at MinuteClinic locations. Affiliated physicians will collaborate with MinuteClinic nurse practitioners to work closely on joint clinical programs and care coordination activities. If more comprehensive care is needed, patients can follow up with their primary care provider and have access to the services at the health care provider as appropriate. For those patients who do not have regular access to health care, MinuteClinic provides assistance in finding a primary care physician and a greater opportunity for continuity of health care services. MinuteClinic, CVS/pharmacy and MedStar Health will begin to work toward integrating EMR systems to streamline communication around all aspects of each individual patient's care. This integration will include the electronic sharing of messages and alerts from CVS/pharmacy to MedStar Health physicians regarding potential medication non-adherence issues. In addition, MinuteClinic will electronically share medical histories and visit summaries with the patient's primary care provider at MedStar Health. MinuteClinic will also continue its standard practice of sending patient visit summaries to primary care providers who are not affiliated with a participating health care provider via fax or mail, typically within 24 hours, with patient consent. The new clinical affiliation announced here brings the total number of health system and health care provider affiliations for CVS Caremark and MinuteClinic to 41 major health systems and health care providers across the country. This new affiliation includes clinical collaborations with MinuteClinic combined with data on interventions performed by CVS pharmacists.
