Hospital Administrators Narrow IT Choices

Posted on 24 February 2011 by KWBG

BOONE, Iowa—The Boone County Hospital Board of Trustees received another update on efforts to move to digital medical records in a timely fashion. The timing involves federal money available to make the transition and to select a system that will be compatible for the hospital’s needs. Joe Smith, Chief Executive Officer at Boone County Hospital says cost comparisons between two systems are being conducted. He also says a third choice has recently been suggested, but additional review will be needed to see if the option is viable. Smith told the Board this week that once a decision is made, it will probably be more than a year before work is completed.
