UPMC’s ‘Convergence’ Recognized for Improving EHR Access

In its Hospitals & Health Networks journal, the American Hospital Association (AHA) granted the Innovator Award to the Technology Development Center of UPMC for the development of its new electronic health records (EHR) platform Convergence. The tablet-based EHR solution combines records from existing legacy systems and new applications and creates evidence-based treatment guides.

The AHA also named UPMC a Most-Wired facility for the sixteenth consecutive year, based on the delivery system’s infrastructure, business and administrative management, clinical quality and safety and clinical integration.
