NORMAN, Okla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Evident LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of CPSI (NASDAQ: CPSI) and a leading provider of electronic health record (EHR) systems and services, and J.D. McCarty Center for Children with Developmental Disabilities, a specialized pediatric rehabilitative hospital in Norman, Oklahoma, are pleased to announce the successful implementation of Thrive, Evident’s EHR solution.
The J.D. McCarty Center for Children with Developmental Disabilities selected Thrive for the clinical and financial management software, as well as consulting services from TruBridge, a member of the CPSI family of companies. The TruBridge services include secure cloud management of the hospital’s data and insurance eligibility verification.
The J.D. McCarty Center for Children with Developmental Disabilities is located on an 80-acre campus in Norman and is operated with funding from the State of Oklahoma. A staff of more than 200 professionals treats children with a wide range of developmental disabilities. There are six hospital units on the campus, all of which implemented the new EHR system.
Mike Powers, quality assessment performance improvement coordinator of J.D. McCarty Center, was impressed with the quality of the implementation process. Powers noted, “We really don’t see how this could have gone any better. The Evident team was key to what we all felt was a very positive implementation experience. This was one of the main reasons we selected Evident for our EHR. The experience, skills and collaborative approach that their people bring to the table are invaluable.
“We were concerned that having various locations dispersed over a large campus would complicate the implementation process. However, the Evident team was more than up to the task of keeping all of us aligned, informed and moving together through the go-live of the Thrive EHR system,” added Powers.
Boyd Douglas, president and chief executive officer of CPSI, said, “We are very proud of our talented teams and the accountability that they all demonstrate in delivering a positive experience for our clients. The leadership and commitment that J.D. McCarty demonstrated throughout the implementation process was a big factor in our success and a leading indicator of our continued partnership. We look forward to working together with the J.D. McCarty Center staff to support the important work they do for the children and families of Oklahoma.”
