Aultman Orrville Hospital Implements New Technology

Posted on Thursday, April 17, 2014 - 11:47am

Aultman Orrville Hospital is proud to announce the recent implementation of more than 20 computer systems, including Computerized Physician Order Entry (CPOE), which has proven to be highly successful in reducing medical errors and improving both health care quality and patient safety.

Nearly every department at Aultman Orrville Hospital was affected by the “extreme IT makeover” according to Aultman Hospital Associate Vice President of Clinical Informatics Kathy Zimmer. “This major technological upgrade will improve both patient safety and staff efficiency while supporting multi-disciplinary delivery of care that is completely patient centered.”

Physicians now have 24/7 access to patient information, which can be critical for both patients and health care providers. Physician orders can also be processed electronically as soon as they are placed. This function reduces duplicate orders, which saves time and resources while decreasing the risk of error.

Patients will benefit from the addition of a patient portal system, which allows them to see a summary of their care online. All patients will receive access instructions upon discharge. Patients will also benefit from the additions of medication barcode scanning and a 24-hour pharmacy.  

“The entire implementation went very smoothly. Our employees are adapting well and we have already seen the benefits of the new technology,” added Dr. Marchelle Suppan, president and CEO of Aultman Orrville. “We are very excited as this upgrade allows us to be more fully integrated into the Aultman Health Foundation system.”

Posted on Monday, March 3, 2014 - 1:46pm

Workers on Friday took down the dense scaffolding that for the better part of a year has surrounded the site on the northeast corner of Orrville's public square, revealing this new downtown landmark. The new structure replaced what had been the oldest brick building in Orrville. Known as Evans Hall, it had originally been constructed in 1866 as a retail space and opera house.  Many will remember this space as Murray's Bakery, or more recently as Sonja's or Cecilia's Rose Garden.  The new building, the plans for which have not yet been announced by Orrville Redevelopment Corp. which handled the project, occupies the same footprint as its predecessor and kept in place some of the original hand-cut foundation stones at street level.

3D Printer Grant Helps UA Wayne Students Apply Knowledge

Posted on Sunday, March 2, 2014 - 10:30am

A 3D printer recently purchased by The University of Akron Wayne College is facilitating real-world application of what students learn in the classroom.

The 3D printer, purchased with a grant from The Laura B. Frick Charitable Trust – PNC Bank Trustee, is currently being used by students in the College’s engineering program.  Students who in the past created 3D images to submit as class assignments are now producing and submitting actual objects instead.  According to Wayne College’s interim dean and engineering professor, Dan Deckler, the printer has created a buzz among students who are now often found spending their free time in the 3D printing lab.

“This printer has been such a hit with the students that we’re hoping to obtain another one,” Deckler said.  One of the classes Deckler teaches at Wayne College is dynamics.  As part of the curriculum, each student produces a model rocket using a nosecone and fin system they create. For the first time this year, students will design and print their components using the 3D printer.  In the spring, students will see how their designs fare by launching them at Wayne College.

The cutting edge technology allows three-dimensional solid objects of almost any shape to be created from a digital model. CAD software lets students create or modify a design which is then printed. The technology uses a process that extrudes successive layers of material in different shapes.

According to Wayne College chemical engineering major Dusty Ball, “The printer allows us to create what we might otherwise only see in a book.”

This new type of technology will provide many additional opportunities for students as it is integrated across a wide spectrum of courses. The skills students learn will transfer directly to real-world applications.
