Martin County Hospital to deploy Cerner CommunityWorks

Stanton, Texas-based Martin County Hospital will implement Cerner's integrated EHR and revenue cycle management systems across its acute and ambulatory care facilities, the health IT vendor confirmed Jan. 31.

Martin County Hospital officials selected Cerner CommunityWorks, a cloud-based IT platform focused on the rural and community hospital market. Under the agreement, the critical access hospital will transition to the Cerner Millennium EHR, which provides physicians with access to patients' clinical and financial data.

The Cerner CommunityWorks IT platform will also offer patients access to an online portal to message physicians, schedule appointments and access their health history.

"Martin County Hospital is committed to providing individualized care to promote our patients' health and well-being," said Rance Ramsey, CEO of the hospital. "Cerner's technology will help assist our staff in being highly attentive and responsive to our patients' needs."
