Anthelio has partnered with Healthland, which implements technology in rural community and critical access hospitals, to help migrate Healthland clients to its new Centriq EHR.

Officials say the partnership will ensure that rural community and critical access hospitals  (CAHs) have the needed support to migrate to Healthland Centriq. The two firms will help establish the basic infrastructure for rural community and critical access hospitals to operate more efficiently, provide access to patient information across the continuum of care, and improve their overall quality of patient care.

“Community hospitals face numerous financial, operational and clinical challenges that require a unique breed of technology solutions, innovation and processes,” said Rick Kneipper, chief strategy and innovation officer of Anthelio. “Our unique EHR, clinical and operating expertise in the rural and critical access hospital market enable us to provide a high quality, affordable, complete migration solution to Healthland customers."

“Healthland is committed to helping rural and critical access hospitals meet the unique challenges they face by providing the solutions they need to deliver high quality patient care and the best possible outcomes,” said Angela Franks, president and CEO of Healthland. “While nearly 25-percent of Americans live in rural areas, only about 12-percent of healthcare spending goes to rural hospitals.”
