January 24, 2017
BALLINGER, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jan. 24, 2017-- Evident LLC, a subsidiary of CPSI (NASDAQ:CPSI) and a leading provider of healthcare technology systems and services, today announced that Ballinger Memorial Hospital in Ballinger, Texas, has selected Evident for its Electronic Health Records (EHR) solution. Ballinger Memorial is a Critical Access Hospital that has a service area of more than 630 square miles and serves approximately 8,500 citizens.
The integration of patient and business office records for both hospital and clinic was a primary goal for Ballinger. Rhett Fricke, administrator and chief executive officer of Ballinger Memorial Hospital, said, “We were ready to update our healthcare information technology, and we wanted to work with one partner that is aligned with our current and future community needs. In Evident, we found a single, integrated system that would give us both a complete EHR and improved financial management tools across care settings.”
Fricke explained that his hospital conducted an extensive review of competitors and selected Evident not only because of its EHR, but also because of its excellent record of implementation and support for community and rural hospitals.
“This technology will support the delivery of quality patient care we currently provide to our community through efficient, accurate health records, while sharpening our financial management capabilities. As a result, our community and its healthcare system will be strengthened,” Fricke added.
Boyd Douglas, president and chief executive officer of CPSI, said, “The Ballinger Memorial partnership will begin with the implementation of our comprehensive set of Thrive EHR solutions from Evident. We will also implement the Revenue Cycle Management solution from our TruBridge subsidiary to help maximize reimbursement and increase productivity. We hold a deep commitment to rural community health providers, and we plan to deliver healthcare solutions to Ballinger Memorial that will serve the hospital and its community well into the future.”
