Grand Rapids, MI (Vocus) May 14, 2009 -- CPM Resource Center (CPMRC) and The Shams Group (TSG) have partnered to provide small- and medium-sized hospitals with next-generation nursing and interdisciplinary documentation that integrates with their current health information systems.

"Through this new relationship with TSG, we will bring CPMRC's evidence-based clinical content and interdisciplinary documentation to the hundreds of hospitals around the country that use TSG's software solutions to better leverage their MEDITECH and other HIT systems," said Diane Hanson, RN, BSN, MM, Executive Vice President and General Manager, CPMRC.
