UCHealth and Eon Pushing Boundaries Through Health Technology Implementation

Health Technology Implementation

A partnership between Eon, a leader in health technology, and UCHealth has enabled the successful implementation of the Eon Patient Management (EPM) platform, which not only makes it easier for the Aurora, Colorado-based health system to track potentially dangerous abnormalities in more patients but also enhances the exchange of electronic data between patients and providers.

“There are hundreds of EPM implementations throughout the United States and every one of them has the potential to save many lives. With this one, we showed that actionable information can reach providers and patients faster and with less busywork for hospital staff,”

Nathan Boehlke, Eon’s Director of Customer Success


“Our goal with innovation and information technology at UCHealth is to fundamentally transform the way we deliver care”, “In many cases, that is accomplished by bringing actionable intelligence to the providers, clinical teams and patients in their natural workflows. The Eon and UCHealth teams did just that by integrating the EPM solution with the UCHealth electronic health record and patient portal.”

Steve Hess, UCHealth’s chief information officer

The FHIR (“fire”) communication standard, which is a result of a 2016 federal regulation intended to end information blocking among various electronic systems in healthcare, is being used for the first time by UCHealth’s version of EPM. The new standard has made it possible for UCHealth to automate a variety of patient and physician interactions, including reminders to check on potentially dangerous abnormalities that were detected in radiological images.

Boehlke said “This gives time back to the clinical team to focus on the high-level work they trained for rather than manually entering data,”

Due to the difficulties in finding an on-site care navigator, certain UCHealth hospitals are employing Eon’s Care Management service in addition to the EPM implementation to follow accidentally discovered lung nodules. The sooner a lung nodule is discovered, according to research, the higher the patient’s chances of recovering.

“When you initiate an incidental program it’s not uncommon to be flooded with 100 new reports daily, and a lot of effort has to go into reading and interpreting the findings. With Care Management, the hospital team can focus on clinical work while we take the clerical tasks,” Boehlke said.
