West Virginia University Health Turns to FormFast to Help Support New Enterprise IT Initiative Towards Standardization and Consolidation
WVU Medicine is West Virginia University’s affiliated health system, West Virginia’s largest private employer, and a national leader in patient safety and quality. Driven by an unbridled passion to provide the most advanced healthcare possible to the people of West Virginia and beyond, WVU Medicine includes the physicians, specialists, and sub-specialists of the West Virginia University School of Medicine; four community hospitals; three critical access hospitals; and a children’s hospital, all anchored by a 500-bed academic medical center that offers tertiary and quaternary care. WVU Medicine has more than 1,000 active medical staff members and 15,000 employees who serve hundreds of thousands of people each year from across the state of West Virginia and the nation.
As part of their IT department’s efforts to standardize and consolidate, the Epic hospital turned to FormFast to help them in consolidating their forms library as well as to develop and design a server setup that would allow their seven hospitals to run on a single instance. The successful forms optimization assessment and strategy created by FormFast will support the organization’s high-level mission to streamline processes, consolidate systems, and accelerate care.
