Stephen Stewart, Chief Information Officer of Henry County Health Center, added, “When we started this journey back in 2004 with our then new partner CPSI, I do not think any of us believed we would end up getting money from CMS for what we were doing. HCHC chose CPSI and moved in the direction we did because, from the start, we were adamantly committed to the fact that our efforts would enhance patient outcomes, safety and satisfaction. It did all that and more. The journey has no end, but we could not have come nearly this far without our committed medical staff and clinicians. This has been truly a collective effort of every associate at HCHC, and I am very proud of each and every one of them. Information technology just enabled this journey, people made it work.”“We are very pleased that Henry County Health Center is the first critical access hospital to receive a Medicare incentive payment for meeting the EHR meaningful use and adoption requirements, and we want to offer them our congratulations on this achievement,” said Boyd Douglas, President and Chief Executive Officer of CPSI. “It is rewarding to see that the time, effort and commitment put in by both organizations have generated positive results. We are confident that Henry County Health Center is just the first of many of our CAH clients that will achieve Meaningful Use objectives and qualify for stimulus funding.” About Computer Programs and Systems, Inc.
