MOBILE, Ala.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Evident LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of CPSI (NASDAQ: CPSI) and a leading provider of electronic health record (EHR) systems and services, announced today that Jamestown Regional Medical Center, a Rennova Health Company, has selected their Thrive EHR solution, along with revenue cycle management (RCM) and cloud hosting offered through sister company, TruBridge. The Tennessee-based healthcare facility is expected to go live with all offerings in December.
Jamestown Regional Medical Center, an 85-bed hospital located 65 miles northwest of Knoxville, was acquired by Rennova Health in early 2018. This recent shift in ownership prompted the healthcare facility to re-evaluate their technology needs and address their ongoing challenge of using multiple, disparate systems to run their operations. Once live, the facility will utilize the complete Thrive hospital and clinic EHR to support its clinical and financial operations. Additionally, Jamestown Regional Medical Center will implement the complete set of RCM products and services as well as cloud hosting offered through TruBridge. The RCM solution set will help the hospital maximize revenue and improve cash flow in part through more efficient insurance claim and reimbursement processes.
“It was clear to us that we needed one complete and fully integrated EHR system that could connect patient clinical and financial data across all points of care, including emergency room, inpatient and the clinic environments,” said Lynette Pritchett Evans, chief executive officer of Jamestown Regional Medical Center. “Having one comprehensive EHR will create greater efficiency and accuracy in retrieving patient information, saving our staff valuable time and offering the patients we serve a better quality experience. It’s exciting to have a system that gives us these much needed capabilities to manage care in our community.”
Boyd Douglas, president and chief executive officer of CPSI, said, “Our continued success in community healthcare comes from our deep understanding of the critical need to support patient care across various care settings. We are confident that the capabilities the Thrive EHR offers along with complementary solutions through TruBridge will ensure the success of Jamestown Regional Medical Center, both in financial sustainability and the quality of care offered to the patients and communities they serve.”
