forged an agreement with HMC/CAH Consolidated, Inc. (HMC). NextGen’s
solutions will be deployed at five of HMC’s wholly owned Critical Access
Hospitals; bringing 10 of HMC’s 12 rural community-based hospitals onto
the NextGen Healthcare platform.
Under the agreement, Horton Community Hospital, Horton, Kan., Yadkin
Valley Community Hospital, Yadkinville, N.C., Washington County
Hospital, Plymouth, N.C., Hillsboro Community Medical Center, Hillsboro,
Kan., and Oswego Medical Center, Oswego, Kan., will deploy NextGen®
Inpatient Clinicals, NextGen®
Lab and NextGen®
Patient Portal to aid in the automation of medical processes as well
as improvement of organizational efficiencies and to provide better
quality care for patients while meeting Meaningful Use (MU) criteria for
both Stage 1 and Stage 2.
An interoperable Hospital Electronic Health Record (EHR), NextGen
Inpatient Clinicals is a highly scalable, secure and mobile-enabled
platform designed to initiate widespread work efficiency and
communication while reducing both errors and time-to-chart and improving
the quality of care the hospital provides. It facilitates full
electronic charting at the point-of-care, promotes interdisciplinary
documentation and includes a discrete clinical data repository for
customizable, comprehensive reporting thereby providing the capabilities
to meet MU requirements.
“With five other HMC Critical Access Hospitals having already received
Meaningful Use incentive dollars by leveraging NextGen solutions and
expertise, we recognize first-hand that these additional five hospitals
will be well-supported in their pursuit of Meaningful Use incentive
revenue,” said Trent Skaggs, chief operating officer of Rural Community
Hospitals of America (RCHA) who manages HMC’s 12 CAHs. “NextGen
Healthcare offers a truly integrated solution that supports our
hospitals’ mission to deliver the highest levels of quality care to the
communities they serve and to advance their efforts to attest for MU."
“Rural and community hospitals face distinct challenges relevant to the
adoption of healthcare IT and are precisely the type of facility to
which NextGen Hospital Solutions caters,” said Jonathan Isaacs, senior
vice president of Hospital Solutions for NextGen Healthcare. “Critical
Access Hospitals need systems that offer the necessary flexibility and
functionality for meeting evolving clinical and business needs. We are
pleased to bring the benefits and customization capabilities of our
technologies to these hospitals. Together, we will strive to enhance
care, improve efficiencies and achieve better outcomes.”
