CPSI gains another contract in Montana from 7-bed facility
Seven-bed Missouri River Medical Center in Fort Benton, Mont., has selected CPSI’s Evident cloud-hosted EHR and revenue cycle management application.
The company has also reported three other contracts that it’s signed with facilities in Montana to use its software to better manage patient outcomes across care settings.
“When we saw what Evident’s solution was capable of, we knew that we had found the right system,” says Louis King, CEO at Missouri River. “The ability to have system integration between the clinic, hospital and emergency department was very important, and knowing that CPSI had the resources and expertise to manage our accelerated implementation timeline gives us assurance that we were moving forward.”
Missouri River expects to complete implementation by the end of the year.
Here are other health IT contract wins and go-lives reported during the past week.
- Tuscaloosa Pediatrics in Alabama has gone live on software from Solutionreach that enables patients to fill out paperwork online via mobile devices, easing patient registration for themselves and the practice. Paper registration is expensive and prone to errors, notes Jim Higgins, CEO at Solutionreach, and practices don’t like it either. “We love that we can send a check-in form to our patients prior to their appointment in a secure and convenient manner,” says Crystal Woolbright, office manager at Tuscaloosa Pediatrics.
- Plumas District Hospital, a critical access facility in Quincy, Calif., this fall will implement the Cerner Millennium electronic health records system as the vendor continues to offer small facilities terms and services that make it possible for them to get online. The EHR will help clinicians reduce the burden of charting by replacing eight other software applications with one system, which also includes an online patient portal to let patients message their providers, schedule appointments, view and settle bills, and access health history.
- Advocare, a large physician-owned multi-specialty practice with almost 600 providers and 590,000 patients in New Jersey and Pennsylvania, has completed implementation of the electronic health record and revenue cycle management platforms of eClinicalWorks. “Our goal was to ensure our physician owners and staff experienced a minimally disruption implementation, so we structured an extensive plan over two years ago,” says Jon Mackler, its chief administrative officer.
- Norton Healthcare, Louisville, Ky., is live on ProviderMatch software from Kyruus to enhance patient access for adult and pediatric care. The technology will serve five hospitals, 14 urgent care clinics and 190 medical practices. The Kyruus platform supports consolidation of provider data from multiple sources that include the EHR, credentialing system and spreadsheets to generate a single profile for each provider, including specific clinical areas of focus.
