Technology Electronic Medical Record (EMR)
Through electronic medical record technology, patient information can be accessed by physicians inside or outside the hospital. The EMR contains all laboratory and radiology results, transcribed reports (discharge summaries, operative reports, etc.), and also provides a live link to patients' radiology images, which are stored on the hospital's picture archiving and communication system.
Physician Order Entry (CPOE)
Upstate University Hospital Community Campus is currently working to create the computerized physician order entry system, which will work inclusively with the EMR.
Public Wireless Network
Upstate University Hospital Community Campus has free wireless internet access available to patients, staff and visitors at many locations throughout the hospital.
Upstate University Hospital Community Campus is a founding member of the Syracuse Metronet which provides secure gigabit ethernet connectivity between nonprofit organizations in Onondaga County.
