FRANKLIN, Tenn., February 19, 2020 (Newswire.com) - A Minnesota critical access hospital, Mille Lacs Health System, and MEDHOST, Inc., a leading EHR (electronic health record) and healthcare IT solutions provider, have extended their partnership to include the MEDHOST hosted EHR. The new service is intended to boost hospital performance and stability. In addition, the cloud-based technology solution will significantly help alleviate pressure on Mille Lacs’ internal IT team while offering improved data security.
The community-owned Central Minnesota critical access hospital has been in operation since 1956 and serves a population of approximately 25,000 people. With 25 beds split between several service lines, the facility felt the added pressures of daily on-site IT maintenance and security created unnecessary burdens. Mille Lacs Health System chose to implement MEDHOST Direct, the EHR provider’s EHR hosting solution, based on the scalability and cost-effectiveness the program offered. The hospital also cited previous positive experiences with the MEDHOST account management and support teams as central to their decision.
“For a community hospital like ours, cost-effectiveness and stability of the solution is critical,” said Bill Nelson, CEO at Mille Lacs Health System. “The hosted enterprise EHR solution will provide us with the added security we need plus access to IT and system management expertise, which can be hard to come by. We’re excited about implementing MEDHOST Direct and look forward to reaping the rewards that come with a hosted solution.”
The enterprise hosted EHR will free up a significant amount of time for their internal IT team. Once implementation of the hosted EHR solution is complete, Mille Lacs Health System will begin transitioning more internal IT resources to their critical care and operational needs.
“We take pride that MEDHOST is able to provide cost-effective and scalable solutions to community hospitals nationwide,” said Bill Anderson, Chairman and CEO at MEDHOST. “In the end, it is all about how we support hospitals with the solutions and services that enable them to fully focus on what they do best — provide excellent patient care. We look forward to our expanded partnership with Mille Lacs Health System and continuing to help them in supporting their community.”
