WALL TOWNSHIP, N.J., Feb. 5, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- HCS (www.hcsinteractant.com), a leading provider of an all-in-one EHR platform for long-term acute care hospitals, behavioral health and senior living facilities, is proud to be an exhibitor at the HIMSS19 Global Conference & Exhibition. This year's conference will be taking place at the Orange County Convention Center, Orlando, Florida, from Feb. 11-15.
The HIMSS19 Global Conference & Exhibition is the leading health information and technology conference, bringing together more than 45,000 professionals from 90-plus countries for the education, innovation and collaboration they need to transform health through information and technology – all at one time, all in one place. HIMSS19 boasts over 300 educational sessions, 1,300 vendors, hundreds of special programs and endless networking events. HCS will be on-site in the expo hall, Booth #4953, to present demonstrations throughout the event with staff available to answer any questions.
"Over the last five-to-10 years, we've heard from multi-site providers that their unique needs were generally not being met by the current catalog of vendors," said Tom Fahey, HCS president and CEO. "We saw this void as an opportunity to focus our effort in areas that would have the greatest impact in helping inpatient psychiatric, SNF and LTCH providers. The unique challenges we always encounter include other EHRs lacking this specific functionality, cost constraints, the inability to consolidate information across the entire organization and scalability. We are committed to this space and feel it is an area where our clients can return the greatest value for their IT spend."
2018 has been a year in which numerous health systems have reported massive operating revenue losses due to their EHR implementations. According to a recent survey conducted by Black Book Market Research, 64% of healthcare executives are concerned about the future of their employment after an EHR implementation. Another 88% of modest-sized health systems were dissatisfied with their EHR selection, citing hidden costs, unexpected consultant fees, interrupted revenue cycles, physician and clinical burnout, system downtime, reliability issues and more.
HCS has become the EHR of choice for numerous multi-site providers of long-term acute care hospitals, inpatient psychiatric hospitals and LTC providers. HCS can consolidate and centralize an organization's information while offering highly specific functionality for these providers. The results are better care delivery and efficient operations at a price point that won't result in operating revenue losses.
