Minneapolis-based Allina electronic records system now at two more hospitals

Allina Hospitals and Clinics is forging ahead with a $240 million push to digitize health records, adding two more hospitals to the new system.

As of Sept. 1, medical records at Mercy Hospital in Coon Rapids and Unity Hospital in Fridley are paperless. Five of Minneapolis-based Allina's 11 hospitals now house their patients' records electronically.

Allina is using Excellian, a software program that creates one paperless e-record for each patient and digitizes the hospital's billing system. Madison, Wis.-based Epic Systems created the program.
