Seymour Hospital Seeks to Meet Meaningful Use Requirements With Prognosis ChartAccess® Comprehensive EHR

HOUSTON, April 11, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- With the government's "meaningful use" incentives hanging in the balance, Seymour Hospital needs to quickly implement an electronic health records system that will meet the needs of users at the 49-bed hospital. ChartAccess® Comprehensive EHR from Prognosis Health Information Systems emerged as the go-to choice after an exhaustive review of systems from several vendors.

"We looked at technologies from a variety of companies and felt that Prognosis had the most user friendly system," says Leslie Hardin, CEO at Seymour (Texas) Hospital. "What really prompted us to choose ChartAccess, however, is the fact that Prognosis is willing to customize the system to meet our unique needs. With that kind of support, we feel that we can confidently move forward with our plans to meet the meaningful use requirements."

The hospital is planning to begin system implementation in June and then work toward meeting the meaningful use requirements associated with earning incentive funds through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) by October.

Seymour also is leveraging the technology to join a growing Texas RHIO. Under this innovative connectivity model, all participating hospitals dial into one centralized solution remotely, making it much easier to get systems up and running. The ChartAccess EHR is integrated with billing, laboratory, pharmacy, radiology and other ancillary systems at the various hospitals, which allows it to serve as a data repository for all clinical information. As a result, the solution provides a seamless continuum of care for patients, not just as they receive services at Seymour but as they receive care across the entire region.

One of the first two Complete EHRs to receive ONC-ATCB-2011-2012 certification, ChartAccess is designed to quickly lead providers toward such EHR success. Designed by clinicians for clinicians, the system makes it easy to overcome the cost, usability and workflow obstacles that commonly stand in the way of EHR implementation. In addition, the solution meets the mobility needs of end-users with features such as iPhone and iPad applications that make it possible to view patient rounding lists, process orders and access results at the point of care.

A shared web-native EHR system delivered via a "cloud computing" model, ChartAccess software applications are made available as a service over an encrypted health information network. The EHR provides clinicians with a complete view of patient data to support optimal and safe clinical care. Users can access the solution by using a standard operating system and a secure browser.

"Providing an easy-to-use system with all the right features and functions is just part of what we do. We also establish strong partnerships with hospitals and work with them, side by side, to ensure that our system is fully optimized," says Ramsey Evans, CEO of Prognosis. "We don't just tell hospitals about the requirements emanating from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. Instead, we join hospitals like Seymour in their journey to qualify for the incentive dollars, and ultimately in their quest to utilize technology for the greater good of their patients."
