As a not-for-profit, integrated health care system designed to offer patients a full spectrum of health services throughout its wide geographic service-area, The Guthrie Clinic required a reliable, secure, high capacity, high speed, telecommunications system, capable of provisioning additional throughput on demand. This telecommunications system needed to be resilient and capable of reaching into the communities The Guthrie Clinic serves.
The Guthrie Clinic has more than 50 locations, 6,000+ employees, 5 hospitals, 599 physicians and advanced practice providers. Guthrie serves a large population of people over a wide geographic area. Regardless of how patients enter the Guthrie system, its electronic health record enables Guthrie specialists and primary care physicians to actively collaborate – literally and virtually – to coordinate patient care.
Guthrie’s robust electronic health record enables Guthrie physicians and clinicians to quickly gain a comprehensive understanding of patients’ health needs and its patient portal, eGuthrie, allows patients to access their health information easily on a computer, tablet or smart phone.
