Good Samaritan Hospital checks in after Epic installation

Vicennes, Ind.-based Good Samaritan Hospital CFO Thom Cook said August was a "great, great month" financially, a "healthy improvement from where [the hospital was] a year ago," according to the Vincennes Sun-Commercial.

Good Samaritan reported a $3.3 million operating income for the month, compared to its $2.7 million loss in August 2015. The hospital also reported a $300,000 loss in investments in August 2016.

The month's report follows the hospital's recent implementation of Epic's $17 million EHR system. The new EHR system reportedly improves the hospital's partnership with Evansville, Ind.-based DeaconessHospital, according to hospital officials. The two institutions are now able to share patient information with each other.
