Computer Programs And Systems, Inc. EMR System User, Henry County Health Center, Is First Critical Access Hospital To Receive Medicare Stimulus Funds For EHR Adoption

Stocks in this article: CPSI

Computer Programs and Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: CPSI), a leading provider of healthcare information solutions, and Henry County Health Center (HCHC), a 25-bed hospital located in Mt. Pleasant, Iowa, are pleased to announce that the hospital, which utilizes the CPSI EMR system, is the first critical access hospital (CAH) to receive a Medicare electronic health record (EHR) adoption incentive payment under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA). The facility received a payment on August 29, 2011, of over $900,000 in stimulus funds made available under the Act, which promotes adoption of EHRs by hospitals and providers. In order to qualify for funds under the program, CAHs must first submit an attestation to being users of an EMR system certified to support the Stage 1 “Meaningful Use” objectives required under the ARRA and then provide reporting over a 90-day period that confirms the utilization of their EMR system is within the parameters required. The CPSI EMR System, Version 17, was certified as a Complete EHR by CCHIT, an ONC Authorized Testing and Certification Body, in November of 2010.

Henry County Health Center is pleased with the extensive support CPSI has provided throughout their efforts in meeting Stage One Meaningful Use objectives and during the application process, resulting in the payment of stimulus funds.

“To receive these funds is an accomplishment made possible through the commitment and dedication of our medical staff and associates as well as the positive working relationship that we have always enjoyed with CPSI,” commented Robb Gardner, Chief Executive Officer of Henry County Health Center. “Our continual pursuit of excellence and our advancements in information technology are ultimately for the benefit of our patients – to give patients the healthcare experience that they expect and deserve through high quality care and improved patient safety delivered in the most competent manner.” Gardner went on to say, “Our progress in information technology allows us to work toward our mission to enhance the health of individuals and our communities through high quality, effective and efficient services.”
