eClinicalWorks®, a leader in healthcare IT solutions, announces that Waverly Health Center is expanding its relationship with the company by deciding to transition from the Paragon Inpatient EHR system to the eClinicalWorks cloud-centric Acute Care EHR and Revenue Cycle Management platform for its 25-bed Critical Access Hospital. Scheduled to go live in 2018, the acute care platform will reduce overall implementation costs while creating unified patient records in inpatient and outpatient communities that ensure the seamless exchange of information.
“At Waverly Health Center we are dedicated to providing high quality, patient-centered health care,” said Jim Atty, CEO of Waverly Health Center. “To maintain our mission, we required a platform that could provide high quality and integrated care to support our Critical Access Hospital. Waverly selected eClinicalWorks in 2008 for its ambulatory EHR solution and has enjoyed outstanding innovation and functionality. This commitment made our decision to switch from the Paragon Inpatient EHR system to the eClinicalWorks acute care platform easier, as it will effectively deliver a solution to enhance patient care and for our 47 providers.”
The eClinicalWorks cloud-centric Acute Care EHR and Revenue Cycle Management platform builds on the eClinicalWorks ambulatory product, providing inventory management, support for emergency and operating rooms, analytics, computerized physician order entry (CPOE), and bed management. Developed by eClinicalWorks with the aid of strategic provider partners, the platform will enable Waverly Health Center to enjoy a seamless flow of information between ambulatory and acute care settings.
“Because we are providing a modern, cloud-based platform with no upfront costs, many new and existing eClinicalWorks ambulatory customers have expressed interest in the acute care solution,” said Girish Navani, CEO and co-founder of eClinicalWorks. “We are excited to expand our partnership with Waverly Health Center by delivering a cloud-centric acute care platform which will dramatically reduce the cost of ownership and establish a unified medical record for its patients in its inpatient and outpatient communities.”
