A health system in New Jersey is rolling out a custom-built electronic health records system it designed in-house—and has ambitions to sell the product to other community hospitals in the coming years.
Holy Name Medical Center in Teaneck is among a growing number of hospitals and health systems investing in digital product development with an eye toward commercialization.
The not-for-profit, independent Catholic health system began implementing the EHR in its emergency department last May after more than two years of development. The health system eventually intends to deploy in its 361-bed hospital, its physician network and other sites.
And the health system is looking beyond its walls and seeing a revenue opportunity. Holy Name plans to commercialize its EHR, dubbed Harmony, and market it to other community hospitals and health systems.
Holy Name doesn’t yet know when the EHR will be available to purchase, but it likely will be within a few years, said Jessica Cox, the director of product solutions.
