Bates County Memorial Hospital Selects Opus Healthcare Solutions, Inc. to Implement the OpusClinicalSuite(R) EMR

AUSTIN, Texas, April 21 /PRNewswire/ -- Bates County Memorial Hospital (BCMH), a 60-bed acute hospital located in Butler, MO and serving Bates County and surrounding areas, has selected Opus Healthcare Solutions, Inc. to implement the OpusClinicalSuite(R) EMR. The hospital offers a wide range of services including a 24-hour physician staffed emergency department, in-patient and out-patient surgery and maternity care, with extensive outpatient specialty clinics and a physician staff numbering 60 and representing a broad cross-section of specialty areas.


One of the determining factors for this selection was the desire of the facility to be prepared in time for the total amount of federal stimulus funds being made available to PPS hospitals starting in FY2011 (calendar year October 1, 2010). By making the selection now and beginning implementation soon after, BCMH will be firmly on the pathway for displaying meaningful usage of the OpusClinicalSuite(R) EMR, a prerequisite for receiving full reimbursement for adopting EMR technology under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA). Coupled with the fact that the OpusClinicalSuite(R) is truly Web-based, the ease-of-use navigational tools will help to accelerate adoption of this EMR technology for the clinical staff at Bates County Memorial Hospital.

Wendell Harris, CEO, FACHE of BCMH, noted, "We believe that the vendor selection process has led us to the right choice in Opus Healthcare. As an organization, we will benefit greatly from the OpusClinicalSuite(R) EMR. From strengthening Bates' commitment to the quality of patient care, to attracting and retaining the highest caliber of physician and clinical staff, to the meeting of federal mandates for EMR adoption, Opus Healthcare Solutions will play a significant role in Bates' continued success in delivering quality patient care to our community."

The OpusClinicalSuite(R) provides a single point of access for clinicians to retrieve all patient clinical information (patient vitals, lab results, medications, imaging results) and submit orders, from the bedside or remote locations such as their office or distant clinics. The suite enables hospitals to meet patient safety issues and implement quality measures for improved patient outcomes, in addition to meeting the interoperability requirements mandated by ARRA.

Fred Beck, President of Opus Healthcare Solutions, said that "We are excited to have Bates County Memorial Hospital as a client and look forward to helping them achieve their clinical organizational goals. Their forethought in selecting a vendor now confirms our belief that many other hospitals will be making similar decisions in the near future as the deadline for receiving full reimbursement under ARRA draws even closer."
