Community Hospitals Select Oracle Health EHR to Streamline Workflows

Community hospitals in Iowa, Kentucky, and Tennessee have implemented the Oracle Health CommunityWorks EHR to optimize clinical workflows and drive interoperability.  

Several healthcare organizations have recently selected the CommunityWorks EHR from Oracle Health to enhance operational workflows.  

The platform aims to support the clinical, financial, and operational needs of smaller hospital operations in acute and ambulatory settings.

Crawford County Memorial Hospital (CCMH) in Iowa chose CommunityWorks to integrate systems across all venues for streamlined operations. Nashville General Hospital, a public safety-net hospital in Tennessee, will also implement CommunityWorks to replace multiple systems with a unified EHR.

Additionally, Murray-Calloway County Hospital in Kentucky opted for the CommunityWorks EHR to provide a single source of patient data under one solution. The hospital implemented the EHR alongside Oracle Health products that support the oncology specialty and simplify infusion suite processes.

Iowa FQHC Adopts OCHIN Epic Implementation to Drive Value-Based Care

River Hills Community Health Center (River Hills), a federally qualified health center (FQHC) serving southeast Iowa, recently completed an OCHIN Epic EHR implementation to drive care coordination.

When River Hills implemented Epic in early August, it became the first of 11 health centers in Iowa that joined OCHIN as part of a collaboration to help increase access to care.  

Managed by INConcert Care, a sister organization of the Iowa Primary Care Association (PCA), the OCHIN partnership supports an integrated care delivery system by connecting health centers in rural and urban areas of the state through a single EHR.

Additionally, OCHIN Epic EHR offers reporting tools to help health centers navigate value-based care.

“As an FQHC, there are a lot of things that we have to report on and collaboratives that we’re in with other health centers within Iowa,” Kim Grove, revenue cycle director for River Hills, said in a public statement.

Since deploying the EHR, OCHIN has provided ongoing technical assistance to River Hills to optimize the system.

“With a project like this, you might think you have everything the way you want it, but then when you start actually using it, you realize there are changes to be made to get it how you really want it,” Grove said. “I’ve yet to encounter anybody who has not been willing to help or look into things when we aren’t understanding or if we think that something we’re being offered isn’t going to work for River Hills.”

FQHC Leverages eClinicalWorks EHR to Streamline Workflows

A federally qualified health center (FQHC) in South Carolina recently implemented an eClincialWorks EHR to streamline clinical workflows.

Health Care Partners of South Carolina has five primary care centers, one school-based health center, one dental clinic, one mobile dental unit, and one optometry clinic. In 2022, the FQHC facilitated over 44,000 in-person visits and 1,200 virtual visits for over 12,400 patients.

“We’ve served our community for over 44 years, and staying at the forefront of the latest healthcare technology is how we’ve consistently fought against the current epidemic of physician burnout,” Santiana Mayo, interim chief executive officer of Health Care Partners of South Carolina, said in a press release.

“eClinicalWorks V12 meets the fundamental needs of our practice — spending less time on administrative work and more time with patients,” Mayo added. “With features like the floating toolbar, our providers and staff no longer waste time entering or finding relevant patient information. Everything is connected and seamless.”
