Community Leaders Value Commitment and One Partner for Full Solution
November 2, 2017
MOBILE, Ala.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov. 1, 2017-- CPSI (NASDAQ: CPSI), the parent company of the leading provider of electronic health record (EHR) systems and services for community hospitals, announced today that Seiling Municipal Hospital and El Campo Memorial Hospital have made the decision to return to the CPSI family of companies for the hosted Thrive EHR solution from Evident.
Oklahoma-based Seiling Municipal Hospital recently entered into a management agreement with Alliance Health Partners, which owns and manages small, rural community hospitals across the United States. When Evident’s management team learned that Alliance Health Partners was looking for an EHR partner with experience, success and a strong understanding of the unique needs in community healthcare, it became clear that they could deliver real value in helping Alliance Health Partners grow their network of owned and managed community hospitals.
The knowledge that Evident brings to the community healthcare space is unmatched and assures facilities like Seiling Municipal Hospital that the Thrive EHR system will work the first time, every time, and enable them to run efficiently, which also positively affects these communities as a whole.
The 18-bed, critical-access hospital will utilize not only the full Thrive EHR system, but will also take advantage of the nTrust program, offered through TruBridge, also a member of the CPSI family of companies. The nTrust program aligns the hospital’s goals by earmarking a percentage of collections toward the EHR product and services. This model makes it possible for community hospitals to improve financial operations while simultaneously moving to an advanced EHR solution with no up-front costs and affordable monthly payments. In addition, nTrust incorporates all the surrounding services, including future product enhancements, software maintenance and support.
Boyd Douglas, president and chief executive officer of CPSI, said “Welcoming Seiling Municipal Hospital back to our family of companies means everything to us at CPSI. As their partner, we will deliver the tools necessary for them to excel on all levels. And, with our newly expanded revenue cycle solution and cloud services, there’s no need for them to have to work with multiple vendors.”
El Campo Memorial Hospital, a 49-bed hospital based in El Campo, Texas, had made the decision under previous management to move to another EHR provider. Their decision was based on promises that led the team to believe the new product and services were better than their current solution. El Campo soon realized that many assurances previously made were not coming to fruition. With Nathan Tudor on board as the new CEO of El Campo, it was time for a new direction. “Once I understood what the team was looking for in an EHR solution and partner, I was certain that Evident was the right fit for us,” said Tudor. “Based on our previous experience with Evident, I also had the utmost confidence in their implementation approach, which eased the anxiety of making another change. You can’t put a price tag on commitment, and CPSI and their family of companies deliver on their promises. The simple act of doing what you say you’re going to do is invaluable to small communities like ours - it’s simply how we prefer to do business.” Douglas concluded, “Our ability to offer the full range of solutions and services that community hospitals have come to rely on is second to none. By eliminating the need for small hospitals to work with multiple companies, we can ensure the business needs of facilities like Seiling Municipal and El Campo Memorial are met at all levels and that small, community facilities continue to provide the high level of service their communities expect.”
