“HealthLINC has been very effective in working with IU Health Bedford Hospital to enhance communications among multiple IT systems in our region of care. Physicians experienced a very seamless transition in connectivity allowing data to flow from hospitals into their electronic record environment. We are confident in the interoperability of various information systems supporting patient care on a daily basis. “

At IUH Southern Indiana Pediatrics the key to our success has been a committed group of staff and providers, says medical director, James Laughlin MD. Our goal was to create a record that met patient care needs, not just regulatory requirements. We broke up our implementation in a way that helped to bring us all along step by step and the result was a series of positive changes until we reached a point where the physicians were driving the demand for more. We were fortunate to be in a community where our own strong internal people had the help and perspective of the regional HealthLINC staff.

Greene County General Hospital’s road to Meaningful Use began in 1997 with the installation of CPSI as our EHR. Since then, upgrades and new software have paved the path for us to meet the 14 goals CMS has established. In January 2011, a multidisciplinary team was formed. That team was charged with the task of meeting the goals of MU. We joined forces with HealthLINC as our REC to accomplish this task. Over the next 6 months work was intense. From research, installing software, travel to training, teaching staff, constant monitoring of stats and to attaining the percentages required – teamwork was the reason for our success.

“Our staff has spent quite a bit of time working with Tri-State, but I feel it is time well spent,” said Dr. Fye. “Our physicians have made only small time commitments, usually confined to within our regular partner meetings.”

Early on in my quest to complete Meaningful Use for 2011 (even before Indiana Medicaid implemented Meaningful Use) HealthLINC and IRHA stuck by me and assisted in the completion of our CMS Meaningful Use application. I could not have done it without the help of Kathy Church BSN, PMP HealthLINC Clinical Operations, Tara Hatfield, HealthLINC Regional Extension Center Specialist and Dana Stidham, RHC Coordinator. Also when Indiana Medicaid implemented Meaningful Use, Andrew VanZee, MHA, FACHE, Statewide Health IT Director answered or found someone to answer my question that Indiana Medicaid could not. If it was not for these four individuals Heartland OB/GYN could not have received their Meaningful Use payout.
