"I set some minimal criteria around high KLAS scores and CCHIT certification and arranged site visits," said Peters, "but at the end of the day the doctors picked Greenway to bring the best resources together to benefit the community. Integration was important to make sure all of the hospital applications talk to each other, and the availability of HITECH funds did help us make this decision because meeting meaningful use criteria will keep us eligible over time."
Pullman Regional Hospital is a designated Level IV trauma center, houses surgical and endoscopy centers and provides more than a dozen medical specialties, and will utilize Greenway solutions in its ENT, pediatric and behavioral health clinics, and within a central billing office.

PrimePATIENT streamlines appointment scheduling, registration and prescription renewal, and provides review of lab results and increased communication through Ask A Doctor features. The availability of a health history repository and the empowerment of patient initiatives it provides is a goal of meaningful use stages and of the Department of Health and Human Services "Personalize Care" goals.
Kramer added that meaningful use incentives capture for clinic providers and participation in proposed Accountable Care initiatives were long-term implementation considerations.
"Meaningful use and Greenway’s reputation and awards in this area were certainly a big part of our decision-making process," she said. "We have also had discussions about accountable care. It is obvious to us that our Greenway system will be an essential tool for us to manage our community’s health."
