CPSI Highest Rated EHR Vendor for 5th Consecutive Year; Eligible Providers Successfully Attest to Stage 2
MOBILE, Ala.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--CPSI (NASDAQ: CPSI), a leading provider of electronic health record (EHR) systems and services, today announced that it has been recognized as the top ranked inpatient EHR vendor for hospitals under 100 beds by Black Book Rankings. This is the fifth consecutive year CPSI has been recognized as the top overall EHR vendor for small and rural hospitals under 100 beds and critical access hospitals.
“We are very proud to again be recognized by Black Book Rankings,” said Boyd Douglas, President and Chief Executive Officer of CPSI. “Our place at the top of these independent rankings for five years in a row is confirmation from our clients that our system and support have continued to fully meet their needs during this transitional period in healthcare IT. The top of the Black Book rankings in conjunction with our industry leading 2014 Stage 2 Meaningful Use (MU) attestations clearly supports CPSI’s position as the leading EHR vendor for rural and community hospitals.”
CPSI also announced that providers using the company’s Medical Practice EHR platform have successfully attested to MU Stage 2. This announcement comes on the heels of the most recent Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services report of EHR Products used for MU in which CPSI leads all vendors in successful MU Stage attestations for the Complete EHR/Inpatient/Hospital designation. Douglas commented, “Many of our rural and community hospital clients own or manage their physician practices. Therefore, having a single vendor integrated solution to address both care settings offers them significant advantages in the delivery of patient care as well as operational efficiencies. With the successful attestation to MU Stage 2 by physicians using our ambulatory EHR product, our customers can be confident they will receive not only the inherent benefits of a single vendor solution but the financial ones as well.”
