Clarion Hospital Selects HMS to Provide IT Infrastructure

Healthcare Management Systems, a provider of healthcare technology, has announced that Clarion Hospital has selected the company to supply an integrated hospital information system.

Healthcare Management Systems (HMS) will provide a full suite of clinical and financial software applications to help the facility implement an electronic health record (EHR).

With the HMS system, doctors will have 24-hour access to patient records which is expected to have a positive effect on medical outcomes.

Vince Lamorella, CFO of Clarion Hospital, said: "Our IT committee, with help from our management company QHR, developed a thorough evaluation process which resulted in our selecting HMS. After all the time spent in site visits, reviewing several different systems and analyzing requests for proposal, I am confident that HMS was the right choice for us."

Tom Stephenson, president and CEO of HMS, said: "We are pleased to be a part of Clarion Hospital's goals to improve their business operations and increase patient safety. We feel the overall integration and depth of the HMS system will satisfy their need for technology that will grow with them as they progress into the future."
