Phelps County Regional Medical Center Discusses ARRA Funding Initiatives and the Journey to Stage 7 of the EMR Adoption Mo

VP of IT at Phelps County Regional Medical Center to discuss process, tools and “lessons learned”

ST. LOUIS--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- FormFast, a leading provider of enterprise workflow solutions, today announced a Webinar profiling a regional medical center’s journey to Stage 7 of the EMR adoption model. The free session will feature David Dawdy, Vice President of Information Technology at the Phelps County Regional Medical Center (PCRMC), and members of his team, who will discuss the center’s experience. The group will offer commentary on the change process, which was accomplished using core technology from FormFast to complement PCRMC’s MEDITECH Magic system. The Webinar, “Moving to Stage 7 of the EMR Adoption Model: Process, Tools and Lessons Learned,” will be held June 15 at 10:30 a.m. (CDT).

PCRMC, a 250-bed facility located in Rolla, Missouri, has recently achieved Stage 6 of EMR adoption and is moving toward Stage 7 —the most comprehensive level of usage identified by the Health Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS) Analytics’ EMR adoption model. This accomplishment puts PCRMC in an elite group, with only 1.8% of U.S. hospitals attaining this level of adoption.

Dawdy and his team will discuss how their process improvements and EMR adoption translates to potential ARRA funds. The June 15 Webinar will also feature discussion of the tools PCRMC used for its achievement: MEDITECH Magic and FormFast. The panel of speakers will field questions from attendees in an open Q&A forum.

“We are pleased to offer this informative event to the healthcare community,” says Rob Harding, president and CEO of FormFast. “Achieving Stage 6 of the EMR adoption model is a testament to PCRMC’s dedication to exceeding meaningful use criteria and increasing quality of care. We are delighted that FormFast has been able to play a part in its ongoing success.”

Attendance for the Webinar is free and open to all interested individuals. All attendees will be eligible to participate in a drawing for an Apple iPad. Register for the Webinar at www.formfast.com/springwebinars.
