A St. Louis-based Catholic healthcare system is the first customer to sign up for an information systems package that combines clinical components of CliniCom's information systems with HBO & Co.'s patient-care lines.
SSM Health Care System will install the systems at three of its 14 hospitals in the next two years, according to Boulder, Colo.-based CliniCom. Included in the package are Atlanta-based HBOC's pharmacy, laboratory, radiology and financial systems, along with a clinical integration component called Care Manager that includes CliniCom's technology.
The two information systems vendors reached a licensing and distribution agreement last month to jointly market their products.
Also, CliniCom last week named a new president, Michael Crabtree. Mr. Crabtree previously was president and chief operating officer of Continental Health Systems.
CliniCom's William Brehm continues as chairman and chief executive officer.
