Lakeland Regional Health
About Lakeland Regional Health Center:

Lakeland Regional Health Medical Center is Florida’s fifth largest hospital. Founded in 1916 as Morrell Memorial Hospital, this 864-bed, comprehensive tertiary referral hospital operates the Jack and Tina Harrell Family Institute for Advanced Cardiovascular Medicine; a Level II Trauma Center; the Carol Jenkins Barnett Pavilion for Women and Children, which includes a Level III Neonatal Intensive Care Unit; and the Bannasch Institute for Advanced Rehabilitation Medicine.

The Medical Center holds high-level accreditations for its Certified Comprehensive Center and Chest Pain Center. Three hybrid operating rooms and a catheterization lab offer patients the least invasive surgeries possible and enhanced safety. The Medical Center is home to the nation’s busiest single site Emergency Department and handles over 3,000 trauma visits annually.

Why They Chose Andor Health:

Lakeland Regional teamed up with Andor Health to implement ThinkAndor to meet new regulatory requirements and enable better physician collaboration inside and outside its enterprise.

The project will allow the Tampa Bay healthcare system to comply with new regulations under Florida’s House Bill 843 aimed at strengthening care team coordination and improving quality outcomes.

Enacted on July 1, 2019, the new legislation requires hospitals to notify patients’ primary care providers within 24 hours of admission to their facilities. It also allows patients to request the hospital’s treating physician to consult with their primary care provider or specialist provider.

For large health systems like Lakeland, complying with Florida’s new real-time provider and patient communication and documentation regulations has become especially burdensome.

Lakeland Regional will utilize ThinkAndor® to unlock the data stored in their electronic medical records (EMR) and put it to use in real-time to enable care team collaboration. ThinkAndor also automates the process of providing the discharge summary and medical records to the PCP within 14 days after the patient’s discharge from the hospital as required by Florida law.

Lakeland Website
“As part of our regulatory compliance with HB-843, we conducted an extensive evaluation of all our existing health information technology solutions. We concluded that none of our current solutions w ould meet these new provider communication needs. After an extensive search of the market, we decided to partner with Andor Health because it offered the only solution robust enough to meet new regulatory requirements with a 100% guarantee of compliance.”
