The 25-bed critical access non-profit hospital owns and operates eight physician practices. Mayo Regional Hospital selected Sage Intergy EHR following a two-year evaluation process of EHR systems in the marketplace. Sage Intergy could easily handle the hospital’s billing requirements, along with the system’s robust practice management needs, said Ben Dever, Director of Mayo Practices Associates for the Mayo Regional Hospital.
“The uniqueness of our billing system and its complexities placed Sage Intergy at the top of our vendor list,” said Dever. “In our search for an EHR, we needed a system that could handle a robust, multi-practice billing system while providing clear reporting metrics and outcomes. Intergy proved the most capable system to meet our needs.”
Sage Intergy EHR is a comprehensive clinical, financial and administrative solution that empowers physicians to advance the quality and efficiency of care they deliver. The Sage Intergy family of products includes integrated practice management, electronic health records, clinical and business intelligence and tools for online patient engagement. Providers can access Sage Intergy from multiple practice locations, from home, or other remote locations either through a central patient database server, or as a Sage-hosted solution on a monthly subscription basis.
Sage Intergy EHR easily tracks the details of a patient's clinical history, shares and manages clinical information and combines complex medical practice functions into easy-to-navigate menus. Sage Intergy EHR features centralized financial operations including billing, reporting, task management, and fully integrates with EDI services, Sage Intergy Practice Portal, Sage Intergy RIS and Sage Practice Analytics.
Dever said Mayo Regional Hospital is working to attain meaningful use, as driven by the federal government’s recent passing of a healthcare stimulus package. Sage Intergy EHR will provide the hospital’s practices with reporting and data collection capabilities as required by the meaningful use rules.
The clinics of Mayo Regional Hospital see more than 50,000 patients a year, and, while cost containment of moving from a paper to electronic system appealed to the hospital’s selection committee, adding Sage Intergy EHR to its healthcare system is driven by providing better quality of care, and tracking outcomes to improve treatment and care options for patients, Dever said.
“We’ll now be more easily able to track patients’ progress through their electronic records, and share patient data between the hospital and its clinics,” said Dever. “This will lead to quicker delivery of care and better, higher quality, encounters with our patients.”
Sage has been providing ambulatory healthcare systems for nearly 30 years, providing practice management solutions, electronic health records and other services to streamline patient care, as well as is a leading supplier of business management software and services, serving more than 6.2 million small and midsized business customers worldwide.
