US-based Comanche County Memorial Hospital (CCMH) has selected cloud-centric Acute Care EHR and Revenue Cycle Management platform from healthcare IT solutions provider eClinicalWorks for its 283-bed community hospital.

The cloud-based platform will replace the hospital’s Paragon Inpatient EHR system and is set to provide the hospital with a seamless flow of information between ambulatory and acute care settings.

Comanche County Memorial Hospital CHCIO, CIO and compliance officerJames Wellman said: “Comanche County Memorial Hospital serves Comanche County, Oklahoma region, with a commitment to provide the best possible care for our patients.

“To achieve this, we know that instead of succumbing to the constant price increases in healthcare IT we can divert the money to investments that benefit our patients.

“eClinicalWorks will unify the hospital to establish one consistent technology platform and allow the hospital to eliminate more than a hundred different applications that are in use today to run the hospital IT. “

Once the platform goes live over the next one year, it will slash CCMH’s overall operational expenses and decrease the efforts involved in implementation while offering transparent views across care settings.

eClinicalWorks CEO and co-founder Girish Navani said: “By transitioning to eClinicalWorks, Comanche County Memorial Hospital will benefit from a unified EHR platform, that will dramatically reduce the cost of ownership and establish a unified medical record.”

The system will also create a unified medical record for the hospital’s inpatient and outpatient communities together with 20 other departments.
