CLEVELAND, Dec. 3, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- To support the high level of care that Cheyenne Regional Medical Center promises patients, it needed a more efficient way to access critical information from seven disparate IT systems. The 220-bed hospital located in Cheyenne, Wyoming, needed a standardized way to manage more than 10.5 million documents into a single, integrated platform. Using the OnBase enterprise content management (ECM) solution, staff members consolidated all patient information into a single system and integrated it with its Epic EMR, supporting clinicians' decision making and saving clinical time and IT resources.
Cheyenne's multi-system conversion was aggressive but Hyland's in-house conversion services team helped the healthcare provider achieve its goal. Within seven months, Cheyenne converted all patient information and data from seven legacy systems, including McKesson Horizon Patient Folder, NextGEN, e-MDs DocMan, LeonardoMD and the GE Centricity EMR.
"We evaluated our prior content management systems and determined that by replacing them with OnBase, we could leverage best-in-class ECM functionality at a lower total cost of ownership," said Dr. Ashutosh Goel, Cheyenne's vice president and chief medical information officer. "Hyland helped us successfully migrate our content and connect it with our Epic EMR for a complete patient record that allows us to operate much more efficiently."
"Our conversion experts worked with Cheyenne to consolidate redundant information from multiple systems which greatly reduces the amount of IT resources required for system maintenance," said Susan deCathelineau, vice president of healthcare sales and services at Hyland Software. "The success of the project was tremendous given the short timeline for completion. Cheyenne can now more effectively manage patient information throughout the enterprise to provide exceptional patient care."
