American HealthTech (AHT), a member of the CPSI family of companies, has been selected by Barnes-Kasson County Hospital to provide extensive electronic health records (EHR) software solutions in a cloud-hosted environment for the hospital’s nursing facility.
Located around 120 miles northwest of New York City, the Barnes-Kasson County Hospital, has already been using Evident’s EHR solution known as Thrive in the hospital and clinic setting.
Evident operates as a wholly owned subsidiary of CPSI.
Now, CPSI’s AHT is offering the clinical management solutions in a hosted environment for the Barnes-Kasson skilled nursing facility. The collaboration will enable the hospital to provide integrated EHR solutions and services across the acute, ambulatory and post-acute care settings.
Barnes-Kassonadministrator for the skilled nursing facility Michelle Taylor said that the capabilities of the AHT solution help them meet the ever-increasing government regulations, an important factor in the decision-making process.
She further said their providers also played an important role in this decision. When they were brought into the product demonstration process, their providers were able to get a good sense of the work flow and the ease of use within the AHT product.
“With the looming government requirements of participation, we needed an EHR that was developed specifically to meet our skilled nursing needs,” Taylor added.
“The fact that we will have integration between our acute, ambulatory and post-acute care settings will help ensure a smoother transition, but most importantly, a positive experience for our patients.”
CPSIpresident and CEO Boyd Douglas said: “Partnering with communities like Barnes-Kasson County is very rewarding for all of us at CPSI. We understand that rural healthcare providers and leaders wear many hats in order to deliver quality healthcare to their friends, family and neighbours.
“Being the one partner that Barnes-Kasson County Hospital can count on every day to help create a healthier, financially stronger and more vital community is what we do best. We are honoured that we were awarded this expanded opportunity to support their skilled nursing facility and help make their vision a reality.”
