Medsphere Systems, Candor Healthcare Forge Healthcare IT Alliance

Systems Corporation, the leading provider of affordable and
interoperable healthcare information technology (IT) solutions and
services, today announced that the company has reached an agreement with
Texas-based Candor
Healthcare to implement Medsphere healthcare IT solutions in new
hospitals Candor manages. The two companies will officially kick off the
partnership with Rock Regional Hospital, a new acute care facility in
Derby, Kansas, scheduled to open in the first quarter of 2019.

With more than 100 years of collective management team experience,
Candor provides the expertise healthcare organizations need to
effectively get up and running or improve existing operations. Candor
services encompass organizational management and development, revenue
management, and technology acquisition and optimization.

“We needed to find a healthcare IT company that could meet the needs of
large and small organizations,” said Candor
CEO Keith Biggers. “Medsphere clearly demonstrated that flexibility.
The subscription-based payment model they offer for acute and ambulatory
facilities helps us keep costs down and conserve funds that are crucial
to getting a new healthcare facility on its feet. We look forward to
Medsphere growing with us and offering the kind of responsive service
that comes from an established partnership.”

At Rock Regional Hospital, Medsphere will implement the company’s CareVue
Cloud electronic health record (EHR) as a software as a service
(SaaS) solution, which incorporates a full suite of clinical, revenue
cycle and financial components available through Amazon Web Services.

“We’re excited and proud to establish this relationship with Candor
Healthcare,” said Irv
Lichtenwald, Medsphere president and CEO. “What’s particularly
satisfying for Medsphere is that we share with Candor a commitment to
providing healthcare facilities with the kinds of advanced healthcare IT
benefits often reserved for large academic hospitals. If healthcare is
going to improve to the benefit of all, we must make sure technology is
uniformly available. Medsphere and Candor share that commitment.”

Medsphere’s CareVue Cloud solution for acute and behavioral health care
and ChartLogic’s
SaaS EHR/RCM solution for ambulatory environments give management groups
like Candor the freedom to work with one healthcare IT partner for
clinical, revenue cycle and financial functionality.
