When Communication is the Key to Success

TriStar Summit Medical Center in Hermitage, Tennessee has seemingly countless reasons to be proud of their organization. Just a few of their accolades?

  • TriStar is the recipient of the Commission on Cancer’s Outstanding Achievement Award;
  • The Society of Chest Pain Centers has named them an Accredited Chest Pain Center with PCI;
  • The Joint Commission has designated them as both a certified Primary Stroke Center and an overall Top Hospital of Quality;
  • They hold the title of ACR Breast Imaging Center of Excellence; and
  • They are the only medical center in Tennessee, and one of only 139 centers nationwide, designated as a Pathway of Excellence Organization by the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC).

With all of these credentials, and over 300 certified physicians representing over 36 specialties….they’re a pretty busy medical center. Needless to say, to maintain their record of excellence, they expect a lot from their equipment. When it matters most, they need a system that delivers.

When all 218 beds are full, TriStar needs a system that is both fast and accurate. They demand dependable, clear information exchange; reliable, easy to access archiving; and secure communication.
