The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia is committed to Information Services (IS) and technology. CHOP invests in IS because it's critical to every department, from the clinical teams that care for patients and families, to the researchers who put CHOP at the cutting edge of pediatric medicine, to the administrators who drive the organization forward.
The Information Services department makes extensive contributions to the CHOP mission, which is driven by four core values: patient safety, teamwork, accountability and transparency.
Information Services is a nonclinical department, but the work done by this team directly impacts CHOP clinicians' ability to deliver the best possible experience and outcomes to patients and families. As a result the relationship between analysts, developers, engineers and the clinical teams is a true partnership. The singular goal: improve care.
Information Services maintains hundreds of applications that keep the Hospital and its network electronically connected. The department manages Epic, the medical record system; ASCOM, a telecommunications solution that keeps clinicians connected; multiple datacenters; laptop encryptions to protect patient and employee information; support and maintenance of thousands of PCs and mobile devices; and much more.
Information Services is responsible for information security, including but not limited to governance and regulatory compliance, risk management, and awareness of threat and vulnerability. A key element of information security is ensuring that CHOP complies with the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), the law that ensures that all health information remains private.
