2014-2015 Community Report

Baptist colleagues have accomplished a lot over the past year, using teamwork to provide care to those who need it most. In 2014, we began implementing Baptist OneCare©, our electronic health record. All Baptist-affiliated hospitals and most Baptist Medical Group offices are using Baptist OneCare, and more than 100,000 patients are accessing their medical records through Baptist OneCare MyChart, enhancing patient privacy, efficiency, speed, mobility, accuracy — and most importantly, safety.

One of our biggest undertakings has been implementing what we learned from our Community Health Needs Assessment. The findings have provided direction for the care we're providing, helping ensure we are having an impact on those who need it most. The assessment found our communities' biggest areas of need are:

Healthy Lifestyle Choices, for which we are working to provide preventive education and resources, particularly for heart disease and diabetes;

Maternal and Women's Health, for which we have opened the new Spence and Becky Wilson Baptist Children's Hospital on the campus of Baptist Memorial Hospital for Women in January 2015;

Mental Health, for which we opened the area's only free Memory Care Center to provide resources and education for the caregivers of those dealing with memory loss and dementia related issues;

Cancer, for which we continue to provide a mobile mammography van for the Memphis area. The Baptist Cancer Center was also one of 12 centers nationwide to spearhead clinical research focused on disparities in cancer care among minorities and historically underserved groups. The BCC earned the National Cancer Institute's Community Oncology Research Program grant, which totals more than $3 million.
