CCMH is celebrating our "Rock Stars of healthcare”-that’s the theme for this year’s National Hospital Week, May 10-16, 2015. It celebrates the men and women who, day in and day out, remain committed to improving the health of their communities through compassionate care, constant innovation and unwavering, unmatched dedication. This is the annual opportunity to thank the dedicated individuals—physicians, therapist, technologist, nurses, support staff, volunteers, administrators and so many more—for their commitment. It’s also a great time for us to tell the hospital story and publicly reinforce the vital role hospitals play in their community’s overall health, which extends far beyond strictly providing medical care.

Cerner Health Conference (CHC) 2013 is an international event hosted at the Kansas City Convention Center annually. The theme for the 2013 event was "It starts with me". Carroll County Memorial Hospital has been a participant in the event since 2011. This year the partnership between CCMH and Cerner was in the spotlight in two venues.
Jeff Tindle, CCMH CEO, returned as a featured speaker again this year. The lecture "Improving Outcomes and Financial Viability--Life After Implementation" focused on the CCMH journey post-implementation of the electronic health record (EHR). "This was an opportunity to share what the efficiency and cost savings of EHR have allowed CCMH to do", shared Tindle. "Revenue Cycle, wellness programing, and software enhancements are just of few of the types of buy ups that keep CCMH on the cutting edge of technology in the rural market.
Moments of inspiration and shared experience can ignite a spark that transforms the present and future of healthcare. That is what CHC is about, sharing experience and inspiring others to take the next steps. CCMH's story of wellness programing for the staff was selected to be highlighted during the 2013 event. Shannon Jordan, CCMH COO, submitted the story of why wellness was important to her, to CCMH Administration, to CCMH staff, patients and the community. The CCMH story was highlighted throughout the CHC marketing campaign--emails, Facebook, banners, posters and handouts. "It was eerie to stand by a six foot tall photo of myself, but also exciting that the CCMH story not only continues to be shared but shared on a large stage" Jordan noted.
CCMH's partnership with Cerner Corporation continues to expand and grow as the needs of CCMH and the community they serve grow. "Partnership is not a term I use lightly," says Tindle, "but is a truly accurate description of the relationship CCMH has with Cerner."
