Cantata Health’s Disaster Recovery Program has been launched for users of its long-term care platform, NetSolutions. 

The program is designed to help skilled nursing facilities faced with a natural or unexpected disaster by offering help with transferring their financial and clinical software to the cloud, the company said. SNF professionals can access their systems until normal operations resume. 

The program is complimentary for clients for 60 days. Clients can then choose to continue using the secure, hosted system for a monthly fee, or move back to their older environment.

“Unfortunately, we see disasters strike healthcare facilities of all types across the U.S.,” said Rich Zegel, Chief Technology Officer for Cantata Health. “We are proud of our commitment to be a true partner in healthcare to our clients and with that, it simply is the right thing to do — to help them when they may need help the most. By moving clients to a cloud-hosted environment during a time of need, it can save countless amounts of patient data.”

The HIPAA security rule requires a data backup plan, a disaster recovery plan, and an emergency mode operation plan for all healthcare organizations, the company noted. 

TN management company selects health records system

Twin Rivers Health and Rehabilitation, a new Tennessee-based management company, has selected and implement American HealthTech’s electronic health records system.

AHT is a wholly owned subsidiary of CPSI. Twin Rivers owns and manages skilled nursing and rehabilitation facilities across Tennessee, beginning operations in January 2019.

“Whether it was working side by side with AHT during our implementation, or contacting the help desk post-implementation, someone is always ready and willing to ensure our success,” said Shane Reynolds, Twin Rivers chief information officer. “And, from a support standpoint, because AHT is cloud hosted, we have the ability to remotely access and support all of our facilities, saving travel time and money.”

In addition to updating the EHR for its new facilities, Twin Rivers is also live with AHT’s Communication Center, which provides secure texting. 

“Our main differentiator is our focus and commitment to the client experience,” said Boyd Douglas, president and chief executive officer of CPSI. “We always put equal energy into our implementation, support and product innovation. We’re delighted to meet and exceed the expectations of organizations like Twin Rivers Health and Rehabilitation.”
