“I give Wellsoft a ‘10’ in terms of the success of the project and installation,” said Bill Patten, CEO of Holy Cross Medical Center.

Wellsoft Corporation, a Best in KLAS award-winning EHR provider for Emergency Departments, is pleased to announce that Holy Cross Hospital in Taos, New Mexico has successfully implemented Wellsoft EDIS in its Emergency Department. Wellsoft was able to meet the needs of the hospital by completing an accelerated implementation in 60 days, enabling them to go live with both a new Hospital Information System and Wellsoft’s Emergency Department solution on the same day in a true big bang approach.

Holy Cross Hospital is a small 25-bed rural community-owned hospital that manages care for more than 16,000 Emergency Department (ED) patients each year. The hospital recently received a Five-Star rating for overall quality from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid, placing it in the top ten percent of hospitals nationwide to earn this recognition. As part of its commitment to provide the best possible care, the hospital embarked on an effort to upgrade the tools and technology it used to treat its patients. This involved upgrading to a new hospital EHR and Emergency Department EHR, replacing their previous systems with state-of-the-art solutions that would better benefit the small hospital and its community of patients.

Holy Cross Hospital selected Wellsoft EDIS for its Emergency Department because of its reputation and high ratings for client support, rapid implementation capabilities, integration expertise and comprehensive one-click documentation. Wellsoft EDIS was customized and integrated with the hospital’s new CPSI-Evident system to better meet the needs of patients and clinicians, and to improve productivity and efficiency in the Emergency Department.

“I give Wellsoft a ‘10’ in terms of the success of the project and installation,” said Bill Patten, CEO of Holy Cross Medical Center. “Wellsoft has been a great partner and has been easy to work with in every way – from contract through installation and customer support. Thanks to Wellsoft, we have a fully functional interface with our hospital system and our Emergency Department is so much more efficient now.”

“As a CMS Five-Star rated hospital, Holy Cross Medical Center has a true dedication to providing the highest level of care to its community and we are really excited to be able to partner with them to help them do just that,” said Dr. John Santmann, President of Wellsoft Corporation. “This implementation shows our ability to scale and tailor the system in an easy and affordable way to meet the needs of rural hospitals – so they can continue to thrive and provide much-needed services to their communities. It also underscores our ability to integrate seamlessly with other hospital systems for the greater good of the hospital and community.”
