CHICAGO, June 14, 20011 /PRNewswire/ -- Norton Healthcare, owner of five hospitals and 125 medical facilities in metro Louisville, Ky., and southern Indiana, has purchased Morrisey Associates' Morrisey Concurrent Care Manager™ (MCCM™) application. The Web-based software enables healthcare organizations to become more efficient, and improve quality and patient safety by automating care management processes.
Norton Healthcare chose MCCM because it's easy to use, has comprehensive reporting capabilities and is the only care management system that can be hosted locally or remotely with Morrisey's Software as a Service+ option.
"This was a unanimous decision that involved all levels of our staff," says Janice Weaver, system associate vice president for Norton Healthcare's enterprise program management office. "MCCM aligns with our care management program, and it will enable us to capture data and improve our performance in ways we have not been able to do in the past.
"MCCM also gives us the unique flexibility to evolve with changing technology infrastructure needs," Weaver says.
In addition, Morrisey's commitment to care management, customer support and proactive approach to software enhancements based on users' feedback impressed Louisville, Ky.-based Norton Healthcare.
"Morrisey has demonstrated a clear commitment to forming a long-term relationship with us," Weaver says. "Throughout the selection process, the Morrisey team responded promptly to our questions, showed a willingness to enhance MCCM to fit our needs, and made it evident how important customers are to the overall process."
MCCM automates case/utilization management; document review; discharge planning; social work; audits, denials and appeals management; quality/peer review; risk management; and infection control.
