Daniel F. Bergeron, BSN, RN, MPH
Director, Nursing Informatics
Dan has worked at Maine Medical Center since 1981. His clinical background is in critical care and perianesthesia nursing. In addition to Dan's clinical practice, he has also held positions as Nursing Supervisor, Head Nurse of the Post Anesthesia Care Unit and subsequently the Nursing Director for all Perianesthesia and Endoscopy inpatient programs.
As the Director of Nursing Informatics, Dan provides a link between MMC's clinical community and Information Services. His work is primarily focused on use of clinical systems by nurses and other clinicians. As Maine Medical moves closer to a fully integrated electronic patient record, Dan provides guidance to clinicians assisting in application development. In addition, he helps articulate the clinical and workflow needs to the analysts in Information Services.
MMC has a long history with clinical information systems, dating back to 1974. Sunrise Clinical Manager (SCM), an Eclipsys product, is used as MMC's primary clinical system. We are proud to say that our physicians input 98% of all patient care orders electronically. SCM is also used for results reporting, medication administration recording, and other clinical documentation including vital signs, point of care testing results, standardized assessment tools (Braden Scale, Fall Risk Assesment, etc.) and many other data elements.
