Healthcare Conglomerate Associates (HCCA) announced this week it will implement Medshpere’s OpenVista EHR in Southern Inyo Healthcare District (SIHD) to manage and support the hospital’s information technology. HCCA contracted with SIHD in January 2016 to reopen, manage and operate the hospital after financial problems forced its closure in late 2015.
SIHD is the safety-net provider for a unique rural and outdoor adventure area that encompasses the city of Lone Pine, California, and is the primary access point to Mount Whitney, Mammoth and national parks. Approximately two million people travel through the area annually.
“This truly unique area is loved by both the millions that visit annually and the thousands that call it home, and we’re proud to provide quality healthcare for all of them,” said Alan Germany, HCCA’s Chief Operating Officer. “OpenVista allows us to improve patient care via a cost-effective EHR, and Phoenix will enable us to improve functions and workflows around the EHR to become more efficient and save money. We’re very pleased with the comprehensive agreement we’ve created and look forward to the benefits.”
