In the wake of regulations urging greater adoption of electronic health records (EHR), three Florida health systems are banding together to develop similar health information technology systems.

The University of Florida, Shands HealthCare and Orlando Health announced they would collaborate on EHR capabilities and clinical quality data to ensure more effective access to patient data across all three organizations.

The EHR initiative is part of a broader collaboration plan that would involve creating joint clinical programs and sharing medical staff and training opportunities. That plan will expand options and access for patients throughout the Sunshine State, said Orlando Health, which discussed its EHR adoption initiatives in a recent SearchHealthIT.com virtual seminar.

“This collaboration lays the groundwork for advancing discussions to enhance patient care, medical education and research advances; and will look to build upon affiliations each of the organizations already has in place with other health-care entities,” John Hillenmeyer, president and CEO of Orlando Health, said in a statement.
