MEDHOST Wraps 2018 with Record-Setting Success
The major health IT vendor launches into 2019 with record-setting success in 2018.
FRANKLIN, Tenn. – March 13, 2019 – For 35 years, MEDHOST has been successfully helping hospitals improve patient care with access to fully integrated EHR tools and a wide range of market-leading enterprise, departmental, and healthcare engagement solutions. It is proud to announce that trend continued throughout 2018 with strong new business and contract renewals as well as implementation and customer support successes.
New Business Growth
In 2018, MEDHOST continued to expand its diverse customer-base, working with hospitals of all types and sizes throughout U.S. Its nationwide footprint has grown to include a number of new multi-facility contracts and corporate customers. A selection of corporate customers also added 35 plus facilities to the MEDHOST portfolio.
Among the reasons noted for the move to MEDHOST was the EHR provider’s established expertise working with multi-facility hospital corporations. As multi-facility entities focus on streamlining corporate standards and consolidating disparate systems, MEDHOST’s 35 years of experience in this area was invaluable.
Strong Customer Retention
In addition to new business, strong retention continued with existing customers renewing contracts and many upgrading to MEDHOST’s hosting solution. Additionally, multiple former customers who had transitioned to another vendor returned to MEDHOST citing excellent customer service, successful implementations, and strong financial and clinical solutions as reasons.
In 2018, MEDHOST also continued to deliver on its operational excellence with an 86% first-day resolve rate for support calls and a resounding 95% customer satisfaction rate for support services.
Other Major 2018 Achievements:
- Corporate migration and new customers contributed to double-digit growth in the MEDHOST Hosting Solution.
- MEDHOST Revenue Cycle and Business Office Services revenue grew over 40%.
- 160 facilities added to Managed Integration Services portfolio.
- 126 facilities successfully completed MU3 implementation1.
- Support services introduced new Service Center to alleviate pressure on hospital support staff.
- Over 400 technical projects completed by the Implementation Team resulting in high satisfaction scores.
“There are good reasons facilities stick with MEDHOST. We have a strategic focus on providing customized attention backed by excellent support and implementation services. That type of experience is hard to find anywhere else,” said Bill Anderson, Chairman and CEO at MEDHOST.
“We feel privileged to be a part of our customers’ ongoing success,” added Anderson. “Our core mission is to support healthcare heroes every day by providing the kind of innovative solutions and trusted support that helps them to focus on what matters most—providing excellent patient care.”
