|RMC program nears full implementation|
Riverland is in its final phase of implementing the Louisiana Rural Health Information Exchange (LaRHIX), Administrator Vernon Stevens told board members Tuesday.
"The last phase to be implemented is computer order entry for physicians," Stevens said. "We're on line with everything else and this will make us fully electronic."
LaRHIX was formed by the Rural Hospital Coalition through $13M in funding provided, through LaDHH, in the 2007 Legislative Session. LSUHSC-Shreveport hosts and technically supports the "Network"of LaRHIX.
The hospital also serves as the tertiary care site for all 24 of the rural hospitals in the exchange.
Riverland has set up telemedicine hardware and software deployed between LSUHSC-Shreveport enabling LSUHSC physicians to consult and treat patients in Ferriday.
In other business, Stevens said he is applying for a Primary Care and Rural Health Office grant which is a federal grant given to states to inprove health care in rural areas to go toward the Riverland Health Clinic being built on Serio Blvd.
"We're trying to get $30,000 for the building and $40,000 for physicians," Stevens said.
For the month of June, Riverland had a deficit of $111,000, with $2.451 million in total revenue and $99,000 in revenue after deductions. Total expenses were $1.110 million.
Stevens said two doctors contracted to Riverland who were out of the country for three weeks had a lot to do with the loss.
"We were actually on average as far as revenue," Stevens said.
