CPSI, a provider of technology services for healthcare facilities, has signed electronic health record (EHR) contracts to provide technology solutions to rural and community hospital in eight states in the past three months.

More than 1,300 facilities in the US employ CPSI technology solutions, including the EHR, which records patient data on one system across the care continuum.

This news follows CPSI’s partnership with Caravan Health to help hospitals develop clinical practices and infrastructure to navigate complex value-based reimbursement requirements.

“We are pleased to announce that in the last three months, hospitals in Texas, Michigan, Georgia, Missouri, Louisiana, Florida, Mississippi and Pennsylvania have selected CPSI and our EHR solutions to address the unique needs of their patients and the rural communities they serve,” said Boyd Douglas, president and chief executive officer of CPSI.

Peggy Moore, director of operations at Campbellton-Graceville Hospital in Florida, said: “We needed a comprehensive EHR where patient data would meet the tough compliance requirements in our state. This solution will mean total peace of mind for us. When auditors come in, we can pull reports and data on demand, while improving our patient data across our entire operation.”

Douglas added: “CPSI solutions are taking hold across the country because we do not take a ‘one size fits all’ approach with our customers. We are their partner, providing them with tailored solutions that meet the special needs and challenges facing rural and community hospitals, both now and into the future.

“As this correlation continues to take hold, it is important that we help our clients understand how they can be successful in this value-based healthcare model. Our philosophy is to be more than a technology provider; we will be a true partner and trusted advisor to improve community healthcare in rural communities.”
