Contract includes early renewal of the System’s largest campus
MISSION VIEJO, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- AUXILIO, Inc. (AUXO.OB), the pioneer in Managed Print Services (MPS) for the health care industry, announced a renewal of its comprehensive master service agreement (MSA) for its MPS program with Saint Alphonsus Health System (SAHS) through 2016 which is worth approximately $12 million in revenue over the life of the contract. SAHS is a 714-bed organization with four hospitals in the Northwest, including Saint Alphonsus Regional Medical Center (SARMC) - the largest campus and one of AUXILIO’s earliest MPS customers since 2007. Signaling further validation of the value of AUXILIO’s unique MPS program to the health care industry, the MSA results in an early renewal for SARMC. SAHS has over 4,300 employees, a medical staff of more than 950 and is a member of Trinity Health, the fourth-largest Catholic health care system in the country.
“Health care is undergoing a seismic change in how it provides care to patients, shares information, reduces waste and controls costs,” said Joseph J. Flynn, president and chief executive officer of AUXILIO. “We are proud to have earned the confidence of this prestigious institution and will continue to work hard with our SAHS partners to help them redirect scarce resources back into patient care and meet the demands of federal mandates toward meaningful use compliance and their overall strategic goals.”
“AUXILIO’s Resident Team members have consistently demonstrated to us that they are true partners with our leadership and caregivers,” said Adrian Wengert, SARMC Supply Chain Director. “Their innovative and customized strategies align their MPS program in ways that precisely support our strategic goals of delivering quality patient care to the communities we serve. Our electronic records strategy and implementation in 2010, was a prime example of how we all worked together on a complicated and complex transformation to achieve a common goal.”
AUXILIO was a key member of the SARMC Genesis Project to coordinate and implement electronic health records (EHR) management into its clinical and business practices. The AUXILIO Resident Team conducted a complete document process and workflow audit of each area of the hospital and delivered an in-depth situational analysis that examined usage patterns and efficiency needs. The outcomes of this extensive review contributed to the successful implementation of SARMC’s EHR, a smooth transition toward hardware and software interoperability, continued volume reduction and maximized document management process efficiencies.
