SUSQUEHANNA, Pa.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--American HealthTech (AHT), a member of the CPSI (NASDAQ: CPSI) family of companies, today announced that Barnes-Kasson County Hospital, which serves the community of Susquehanna, Pennsylvania, and the surrounding area, has selected AHT to provide comprehensive electronic health records (EHR) software solutions in a cloud-hosted environment for its skilled nursing facility.
Barnes-Kasson County Hospital, located about 120 miles northwest of New York City, expanded their partnership with CPSI and their family of companies to deliver integrated EHR solutions and services across the acute, ambulatory and post-acute care settings. In addition to its skilled nursing facility, Barnes-Kasson provides healthcare services that span the full care continuum, including inpatient, clinic, 24-hour emergency care and rehabilitation services. Along with the Evident EHR solution, Thrive, which is currently deployed in the hospital and clinic setting, AHT now provides the clinical management solutions in a hosted environment for the Barnes-Kasson skilled nursing facility.
Michelle Taylor, administrator for the Barnes-Kasson skilled nursing facility, said that the capabilities of the American HealthTech solution help them meet the ever-increasing government regulations, an important factor in the decision-making process. She said their providers also played an important role in this decision. When they were brought into the product demonstration process, their providers were able to get a good sense of the work flow and the ease of use within the AHT product.
“With the looming government requirements of participation, we needed an EHR that was developed specifically to meet our skilled nursing needs,” Taylor said. “The fact that we will have integration between our acute, ambulatory and post-acute care settings will help ensure a smoother transition, but most importantly, a positive experience for our patients.
“Working with one partner across all of our care settings is a real advantage to us,” added Taylor. “The breadth and depth of the EHR solutions, along with the hosting services, allows us to focus on what we do best – serving our rural community with quality care in a friendly, caring atmosphere.”
Boyd Douglas, president and chief executive officer of CPSI, said, “Partnering with communities like Barnes-Kasson County is very rewarding for all of us at CPSI. We understand that rural healthcare providers and leaders wear many hats in order to deliver quality healthcare to their friends, family and neighbors. Being the one partner that Barnes-Kasson County Hospital can count on every day to help create a healthier, financially stronger and more vital community is what we do best. We are honored that we were awarded this expanded opportunity to support their skilled nursing facility and help make their vision a reality.”
