Solutions for Critical Access Hospitals

Critical Access HospitalSmall and critical access hospitals (CAH) face unique challenges. In the rapidly changing healthcare landscape, your facilities provide a vital backbone of the national healthcare system and an economic anchor for thousands of small communities, serving 18% of Americans. Yet CAH and other small hospitals only receive 13% of available financial resources.

You have to do more with less – maintain a high quality of care while dealing with the realities of small scale, shrinking patient bases, aging demographics, difficult recruiting, remote locations, and a revenue mix more reliant on public than private reimbursement – all in a highly uncertain policy environment.

In order to stay afloat in a perfect storm of revenue, regulatory and resource constraints, small and critical access hospitals need to invest in technology solutions that help:

  • Drive physician adoption of CPOE to achieve Meaningful Use of a qualified EHR
  • Manage cost-saving HIM systems with limited IT resources
  • Improve quality of care to maximize revenue opportunities from outcomes-based reimbursement models
