University Health System (UHS) is a nationally recognized academic medical center in San Antonio, Texas, U.S.A., serving more than 230,000 unique patients each year. Like many healthcare organizations, UHS strives to deliver the best care at the lowest cost.

“Every c-suite healthcare executive in the country is focused on improving quality, safety and outcomes. Improving the patient experience. Improving efficiency and access to care,” Senior Vice President and Chief Information Officer Bill Phillips said. “How do we give better care to our patients and still cut costs? That is getting really difficult.”

Because it’s critical to have a financial decision support solution that enables greater visibility to financial performance, UHS uses Allscripts EPSi™:


“Knowing what your service lines are doing, how they’re performing each day, is a ‘must’ to survive these tight economic times in health care,” Phillips said. “EPSi is an extremely powerful tool for our financial picture.”


Editor’s Note: UHS uses Allscripts Sunrise™ as its core clinical solution, EPSi to integrate financial processes and Allscripts dbMotion™ Solution as its connectivity platform.
