Anthelio projects that this project will enable hundreds of community hospitals to benefit from its unique integrated service delivery model.

The combined efforts of Healthland and Anthelio will ensure that rural community and critical access hospitals have all the support they need to migrate to Healthland Centriq.

Healthland Centriq was developed specifically to help rural hospitals enhance the quality of care they provide the neighbors, family, and friends in their communities. Together, Healthland and Anthelio will continue to deliver on Healthland’s mission of transforming community healthcare.”

“Community hospitals face numerous financial, operational and clinical challenges that require a unique breed of technology solutions, innovation and processes,” said Rick Kneipper, Chief Strategy and Innovation Officer of Anthelio. “Our unique EHR, clinical and operating expertise in the rural and critical access hospital market enable us to provide a high quality, affordable, complete migration solution to Healthland customers.
