Healthland Announces Electronic Health Records Advances by Rural Hospitals

Minneapolis, Minnesota – January 26, 2015 

Healthland Inc., a leading provider of healthcare information technology solutions to rural community and critical access hospitals, announces that hospitals using its electronic health records solutions have achieved notable progress in 2014.

Healthland CEO Chris Bauleke said, “The numbers are in, and we’re proud to announce that our client hospitals have made real progress. Most significantly, a major milestone was reached as more than 150 hospitals have made the move to the Centriq solution with another 50 hospitals in progress.”  Bauleke said, “Hospitals are seeing the results of our investment in migrations, support and the accelerated development of Centriq’s financial and clinical products.”

In addition, Bauleke announced that 99 percent of eligible Healthland clients seeking attestation for Stage 2 Meaningful Use successfully did so, “a critical achievement for these hospitals.”  To help hospitals achieve MU attestation in 2014, Healthland successfully certified both its Classic legacy product and the advanced Centriq solution to ensure that clients had options for receiving MU stimulus funds.

Bauleke reported the impact of a consistent and scalable approach to Centriq has been evidenced through the enthusiasm and participation at Healthland’s “Connect 14” fall user conference in Austin, Texas, with a record 500-plus attendees from across the country, as well as positive feedback from hospital executives. For example, Jon Smith, CFO of Caribou Memorial Hospital and Living Center in Soda Springs, Idaho, said of his partnership with Healthland, “The migration team was great to work with and a responsive partner throughout the process. Healthland has supported us every step of the way.”

Bauleke said that the partnership between Healthland and its clients is a major reason for successful migrations to the Centriq solution, along with significant achievement of hospitals’ MU attestation goals.

He reported that a satisfying part of this relationship is the end result – where EHR long-term benefits flow to client hospitals, their communities and their patients.
