HUNTSVILLE, Ala.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--American HealthTech (AHT), a wholly owned subsidiary of CPSI (NASDAQ: CPSI), today announced that AHT has been selected by Fairview at Redstone Village in Huntsville, Alabama, to provide comprehensive EHR software and revenue cycle solutions along with support and solution hosting. The Alabama nursing home expects to improve productivity and agility while delivering the highest quality of care within the ever-changing skilled nursing industry.
In addition to its post-acute nursing home, Redstone Village offers independent living, assisted living, memory support and rehabilitation services on its campus in Huntsville, which is located roughly 100 miles north of Birmingham.
“Both our Director of Nursing and I had prior experience with AHT, and we were impressed with how they have aligned their product to meet the continuing changes and needs of our industry,” said Vicki NeSmith, administrator of Fairview at Redstone Village. “Their turn-key hosting options and willingness to work with us and our existing hardware made our decision an easy one, and their in-person, on-site implementation and unlimited application support helped set them apart.
“AHT was able to bring a personal touch to the decision-making process by visiting the facility to view each existing desktop and kiosk in order to ensure compatibility with the AHT solution. Coupled with the fact that the provider-centered user interface simplifies kiosk interaction, Fairview at Redstone Village was pleased. AHT really went the extra mile to ensure our hardware would work with their software, which shows their dedication to our success,” added NeSmith.
Teresa Chase, president of AHT, said, “We are privileged to partner with Fairview Skilled Nursing, and we appreciate their forward-thinking nature. They understand the need for strong, integrated EHR and revenue cycle solutions that will keep them ahead of the curve. We continually strive to provide our clients with the products and partnership that will guide them through the ever-changing needs of this industry.
“Medical charting technology is part of AHT’s complete and integrated clinical, financial and revenue cycle solution for post-acute and senior living organizations. Physician and nursing notes, lab results, prescription information, billing history, immunization records and more are quickly, easily and accurately charted into the system, saving time and resulting in a much more efficient and person-centered experience. We are pleased that our partners at Fairview at Redstone Village can now take advantage of this technology,” added Chase.
