HOUSTON, April 11, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Blue Mountain Hospital has used an electronic clinical system since its inception in 2009 – but recently announced plans to swap out its original technology with an enterprise clinical and financial solution from Prognosis Health Information Systems.
"We were lucky to start out as a completely electronic hospital. But we realize that the system we are using simply is not meeting all of our needs," says Jeremy Lyman, CFO at the 11-bed, Blanding, Utah-based critical access hospital, which provides comprehensive healthcare to nearly 15,000 residents of San Juan County in addition to potentially hundreds of thousands of visitors to nearby Colorado, New Mexico, and Arizona. "As the federal government rolls out the EHR adoption incentive program, we realize we need to do something different but don't want to go through upgrades and customization of the existing system. We decided to look for a better option that will quickly meet the government's meaningful use requirements and most importantly improve patient care."
