OCHIN boosts Bend office with cross training that grows health information technology (HIT) business in Oregon, Idaho, and Alaska After the acquisition of Central Oregon Electronic Medical Records (COEMR) in 2010, Cindy Dulley became an OCHIN employee and successfully helped to grow the OCHIN operation in eastern and southern Oregon, Idaho, and Alaska.
PORTLAND, Ore., July 18, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Cindy Dulley joined OCHIN in 2010 with the acquisition of COEMR, and today she is managing the OCHIN Bend office. Building on a billing and operations background at COEMR, Dulley is using her leadership acumen to cross train staff, build the skills of OCHIN's six Bend electronic health record sales and support staff, and deepen penetration in southern and eastern Oregon, Idaho, and Alaska.
"Cindy's continual and positive presence throughout the acquisition really helped our relationships with both customers and the local community," stated Kevin Geoffroy, OCHIN's VP of EHR operations. "OCHIN strives to provide clients with a seamless product and service integration that eases the burden of change for medical providers and their staffs so that they can focus on treating their patients."
"After the acquisition, we were fortunate to maintain all of our COEMR staff members," said Dulley. "Becoming a part of OCHIN has added resources and tools to our e-Clinical Works EMR that can help all providers to successfully manage state and federal healthcare requirements and better serve their patients."
After hearing that OCHIN had acquired COEMR to provide continuity of service to local providers, Oregon Senator Tim Knopp, Bend, Oregon, commented, "I am always glad to hear success stories where businesses work together in support of customers and employees—this was the right formula for Oregon, and I am very happy about Ms. Dulley's promotion."
