Catholic Health to invest $135 million in new health records system

Catholic Health System will devote $135 million to launching a new electronic health records system, aimed at giving patients and health care providers a more efficient, user-friendly way to track patient care.

Catholic Health said the investment, the largest in its history, will also involve a partnership with Canisius College, exposing students to future career options and possibly internships on the project.

Designing, building and testing the new system is expected to take 18 months, culminating in a launch scheduled for the fourth quarter of 2020, said Mark Sullivan, Catholic Health’s president and CEO. “It’s a transformation of Catholic Health as a whole,” he said.
