“We appreciate greatly the assistance of Cerner’s workforce in anticipating, innovating and accelerating implementation of our EMR this year and HCH’s executives enlist, equip, empower and engage HCH’s workforce.”
— David Troublefield, MD, Hemphill County Hospital
Critical access hospitals are often the lifebood of rural areas in the United States. Pagosa Springs Medical Center (PSMC) in southwestern Colorado says one of its major arteries is its Cerner electronic health record. “It is necessary to serve the growth of our organization,” said PSMC CEO Brad Cochennet. “We grew 30 percent the year we turned on Cerner, and 40 percent the year after that. We would be really struggling if we weren’t on Cerner.” Some of that growth came, literally, overnight. PSMC, a Cerner CommunityWorks client, was on paper until the stroke of midnight Feb. 17, 2014. PSMC implemented Cerner – and immediately became a HIMSS Stage 6 Hospital. From its Level Four Trauma Center to its billing office, everything at PSMC is integrated. The hospital, its rural health clinic and everyone who provides care at the health system can now all access patient information in real time: visiting specialists, PSMC employed physicians, PSMC pharmacists, and the area nursing home.
“Since starting with Dynamic Documentation 90 days ago, we have seen a remarkable reduction, seven minutes spent in the medical record per patient per visit. The majority of this time improvement is due to streamlined documentation. That equates to a savings of 150 hours – more than on FTE provider!” -- Jason Hughes, DO, Kahuku Medical Center
“It’s like an artery. Having Cerner’s electronic health record is necessary to serve the growth of our organization.” -- Brad Cochennet, CEO, Pagosa Spring Medical Center
