Comanche County Memorial Hospital selects the eClinicalWorks cloud-centric Acute Care EHR; Scheduled to go live in the next 12 months
WESTBOROUGH, Mass.—March 2, 2018—eClinicalWorks®, a leader in healthcare IT solutions, announces that Comanche County Memorial Hospital (CCMH) has decided to transition from the Paragon Inpatient EHR system to the eClinicalWorks cloud-centric Acute Care EHR and Revenue Cycle Management for its 283-bed community hospital and will go live in the next 12 months. The modern, cloud-based platform starts at $599 per bed per month, with no capital costs for licensing. With no financial barriers by transitioning to eClinicalWorks, CCMH will benefit from a seamless flow of information between ambulatory and acute care settings.
“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,” said James Wellman, CHCIO, CIO & Compliance Officer of Comanche County Memorial Hospital. “After learning about the eClinicalWorks Acute Care EHR cloud-based platform, we were impressed with the technology to deliver a cost-friendly solution that will enhance patient care and become a positive change for the industry. We decided to make the switch from the Paragon Inpatient EHR system to eClinicalWorks because its pricing model has been so successful that we are eager to apply it to CCMH’s acute care space. 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. We take pride in spending our money wisely and in a manner, that benefits our community. This partnership will be critical in continuing that process.”
The eClinicalWorks cloud-centric Acute Care EHR and Revenue Cycle Management will reduce CCMH’s overall costs and reduce the efforts involved in implementation while delivering transparent views across care settings. The system will also create a unified medical record for the hospital’s inpatient and outpatient communities along with 20 other departments.
“We are proud to announce another hospital has selected the eClinicalWorks cloud-centric Acute Care platform,” said Girish Navani, CEO and co-founder of eClinicalWorks. “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.”
eClinicalWorks will showcase the Acute Care EHR and Revenue Cycle Management solution at booth #145 during HIMSS18.
