Computer Zone and Prognosis HIS Partner to Provide Comprehensive EMR and Services Solution to Hospitals

End-to-End Services and Innovative Cloud Delivery Model Deliver Complete and Cost-Effective Solution

ROCKINGHAM, NC and HOUSTON, TX--(Marketwire - June 22, 2010) -  Computer Zone and Prognosis Health Information Systems announced today that they have partnered to deliver the Prognosis ChartAccess® EMR and ancillary applications to hospitals via a cloud or Software as a Service (SaaS) model and supported by Computer Zone's comprehensive implementation methodology.

The Prognosis/Computer Zone solution is a significant development for hospitals facing a variety of challenges including cost, the need to upgrade infrastructure and tight deadlines as they prepare to qualify for ARRA Stimulus funds. With the uncertainty surrounding the stimulus funding program, hospitals are looking for solutions that enable them to move quickly, and with the assurance that they are getting the expertise they need.

Unlike competing applications from legacy vendors, the combined Computer Zone/Prognosis solution provides significant advantages including:

  • Already meets all proposed criteria for Certification and "meaningful use"
  • Is significantly less expensive than established legacy vendors
  • Due to its Cloud/SaaS architecture, can be deployed faster and with lower costs for computing infrastructure
  • Is supported by a comprehensive, end-to-end implementation methodology that includes workflow analysis, training, customization, on-going support and more.

"We are excited to be working with Prognosis to deliver a comprehensive software and support solution to hospitals not just in the Carolinas but in the entire eastern half of the US from Chicago to Florida," said Sandy Huggins, vice president of Computer Zone. "The Prognosis ChartAccess EMR is in many ways years ahead of the competition and with our services and expertise, we offer a complete package to hospitals that need to meet meaningful use requirements."

"At Prognosis, we've gone to great lengths to develop a healthcare technology platform that meets the needs of the hospitals of today including a flexible, secure and scalable web-based architecture," said Ramsey Evans, president and CEO of Prognosis. "With this partnership, we expand our reach to a much wider geography and can offer the best technology and the best service to even more hospitals that need to implement an EMR -- and we can do it in most cases faster and more affordably than anyone else."
