Minneapolis-based Healthland has introduced a next-generation of its integrated financial/clinical hospital information system for small and rural hospitals.

Healthland Centriq is Web-based with a single database, and the vendor can remotely host it. The inpatient electronic health records software is certified as meeting Stage 1 meaningful use requirements; the ambulatory EHR is not yet certified. The system also supports data access via tablet computers and smart phones.

The 30-year old company got higher input from rural clinicians than ever before in developing, testing and implementing Centriq, says Angie Franks, president and CEO. Among other benefits, the collaboration resulted in a one-page, one-screen complete patient medical history; easier-to-use computerized physician order entry; and workflows aligned with rural hospitals.

Centriq also has some data analytics capabilities with more to come, Franks says. "I think there's a big opportunity in the future to provide more analytics and more patient data to improve care." Early adopters include Horn Memorial Hospital in Ida Grove, Iowa; Grape Community Hospital in Hamburg, Iowa; and Mitchell County Hospital in Colorado City.

Healthland will not continue to actively market its Classic financial/clinical HIS but will support it indefinitely, Franks says. More information is available at healthland.com.
