Covid-19 Pandemic Has Prompted Rural Hospitals To Adopt EHR Platforms
Since the beginning of the Covid-19 pandemic, healthcare institutions across the world have recognized the importance of integrating new technological advances into their existing systems. After the Covid-19 pandemic became a global crisis, US President Trump released an executive order to further expand access to telehealth services during the Covid-19 pandemic, especially in rural communities. This prompted healthcare providers in rural areas to turn to cloud-based technologies in order to solve existing problems. Perry Community Hospital, The Heights Hospital, DeWitt Hospital and Alliance Hospital have moved to Azalea Health’s scalable, straightforward, flexible and cost-efficient cloud-based electronic health record platform.
