The Children’s Center Selects EHR Solution

Feb. 11, 2010

Reston, Va., Feb. 9, 2010 – QuadraMed® Corporation (NASDAQ:QDHC) today announced that The Children’s Center, a pediatric specialty hospital in Bethany, Oklahoma, has purchased QuadraMed CPR (QCPR™), the award-winning electronic health record (EHR) solution. QCPR’s robust functionality and superior flexibility will meet the Center’s specialized needs and help clinicians increase the quality, safety and continuity of pediatric care.

“QuadraMed’s solution can be tailored to pediatric care, to the complex needs of our patients, and to the workflows of the many different kinds of clinicians who care for them, including doctors; nurses; nurse educators; physical and speech therapists, and pharmacists,” said Darin Brannan, M.D., medical director of The Children’s Center. “QCPR provides us with greater customization capabilities than any of the other products we considered. With QuadraMed’s support, we are confident we will be able to show “meaningful use” in time for our outpatient clinic to qualify for the federal ARRA incentives in 2011.”

The Center offers a wide range of medical services, rehabilitative care and social services to children with complex medical and physical disabilities in long-term care and others who have experienced traumatic injuries to the brain or spinal cord in short-term rehabilitation. It also serves thousands of outpatients through the hospital and Pediatric Physician Clinic.

The Center purchased the QCPR Smart Start solution, which enables order entry, results reporting, nursing assessments for care data capture, care management plans, and inpatient acuity measurement. Care providers receive integrated, clinical decision support for medication administration, (including lab values and care documentation), as well as pharmacy medication delivery. The Children’s Center also acquired Computerized Physician Order Entry (CPOE); Long-Term Care and Rehabilitation modules, and QuadraMed’s AcuityPlus nurse staffing management solution.

The packaged Smart Start solution provides each clinician with a customized dashboard that limits their access to information pertinent to their discipline. As a result, QCPR drives improved continuity of clinical operations as well as continuity of care. QCPR Smart Start includes hundreds of pre-designed reports used by medical facilities throughout the country. The Center can deploy these reports with minimal customization to replace other forms that its staff uses every day.
The Children’s Center, a private, nonprofit pediatric hospital, is dedicated to helping children with complex medical and physical disabilities maximize their potential. In an atmosphere of love and hope, the Center provides general pediatrics, medical and respiratory care, rehabilitative therapies, and special education to youth and children, both inpatients and outpatients.
