Memorial Hospital of Sweetwater County Signs Enterprise-Wide Agreement for QuadraMed’s EHR and Document Management Solutio

Software systems slated to help facility demonstrate Meaningful Use

RESTON, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- QuadraMed® Corporation, a leading provider of healthcare technologies and services that improve the quality, safety and efficiency of patient care, today announced Rock Springs, Wyo.-based Memorial Hospital of Sweetwater County will deploy its full suite of electronic health record (EHR) and document management solutions as part of the facility’s readiness strategy for achieving Meaningful Use.

A QuadraMed client since 2007, Memorial Hospital of Sweetwater County will add the company’s EHR offering, QuadraMed Computerized Patient Record (QCPR), and document management system, Quantim Electronic Document Management (QEDM), to the QuadraMed revenue cycle management technologies currently in place.

“As we look ahead to 2012, our goal is to further advance the clinical quality and patient safety initiatives already underway while also laying the groundwork for meeting Meaningful Use guidelines,” said Gerald Klein, CEO at Memorial Hospital of Sweetwater County. “QuadraMed’s EHR and document management solutions allow us to seamlessly integrate our clinical and financial processes into one patient-focused delivery model that supports this mission, enhances care and drives continuous improvement throughout the organization.”

QCPR version 5.2 is a complete EHR solution that combines many aspects of patient care into a single, confidential, computer-based patient record. The ONC-ATCB certified solution facilitates integrated registration processes, order entry, results reporting, nursing data capture and an integrated medication delivery process. QCPR also includes Meaningful Use interoperability software and services that enable users to qualify for ARRA stimulus funds.

“We’re committed to providing industry-leading clinical tools that enhance our customers’ ability to deliver the highest quality of patient care,” said Duncan W. James, QuadraMed CEO. “With the release of the latest version of QCPR, we worked diligently to include upgrades that will enable our U.S.-based customers to achieve ARRA Hospital Stage 1 Meaningful Use and attain the maximum possible financial incentive.”

QEDM will help facilitate Memorial Hospital of Sweetwater County’s transition from paper-based charts to electronic medical records by allowing the facility to store a secure, comprehensive collection of patients’ medical records within one centralized web-based solution. As a result, providers will have immediate access to current and historical patient information at the time of treatment, which ultimately promotes safer, more effective care.

“During our four-year relationship with QuadraMed, we have truly benefited from the best practices they provide,” added Klein. “We are confident these new solutions will put us well on the path to meeting our clinical and financial goals.”

Memorial Hospital of Sweetwater County is a Joint Commission accredited acute-care organization with 99 beds. The facility will go live with QCPR 5.2 and QEDM in 2012. Both products will be used by all clinicians across the enterprise.
