Regional Cancer Center in Southwest Washington Chooses Rabbit Healthcare Systems

Oncology Practice With Six Locations Installs Rabbit's EMR Software

AUSTIN, TX--(Marketwire - January 8, 2008) - Rabbit Healthcare Systems of Austin has just completed installation of electronic medical records software for its largest client to date -- Capital Oncology, a quickly growing oncology practice in Olympia, Wash.

In December, Rabbit Healthcare Systems wrapped up implementation of electronic medical records (EMR) software for five of Capital Oncology's six offices. The sixth office is set to go online in January. The oncology practice comprises six doctors.

With Capital Oncology, Rabbit Healthcare Systems now serves oncology practices throughout the United States that have nearly 20 sites.

"Capital Oncology has placed its trust in Rabbit Healthcare Systems to set up a stable, safe system for storing electronic medical records. Their faith in Rabbit Healthcare Systems underscores the ability of our company to deliver top-quality EMR software and services to oncology practices," says Brad Vassberg, president of Rabbit Healthcare Systems.

Capital Oncology was founded last February by Dr. Dustan Osborn. Five physicians from Osborn's previous practice joined him at Capital Oncology. The new practice started treating patients in May.

Capital Oncology offers diagnostic treatments -- including on-site chemotherapy and laboratory services -- to patients in five counties through six offices in Olympia, Auburn, Chehalis, Morton and Shelton. The practice has logged more than 20,000 patient visits since May.

Craig Wyzik, practice administrator at Capital Oncology, says Rabbit Healthcare Systems was selected from an initial pool of about 12 vendors. He says Capital Oncology was impressed by the efficient design, ease of use and functionality of Rabbit Healthcare Systems' technology. "And it was much more cost-effective than the other vendors we were looking at," Wyzik says.

He also compliments Rabbit Healthcare Systems for its responsiveness to requests for software tweaks and troubleshooting.

"Rabbit Healthcare Systems prides itself on tailoring EMR systems to clients' needs and providing exceptional customer service," Vassberg says.

Wyzik says Capital Oncology's interaction with Rabbit Healthcare Systems is in stark contrast to what he and most of his Capital Oncology colleagues experienced with the EMR vendor at the oncology practice where they previously worked. At that practice, doctors and employees coped with a complicated, poorly designed EMR system, according to Wyzik.

"We were smarter shoppers this time around," Wyzik says.
