HRRMC constantly strives to improve the level of patient care it provides. For instance, on Wednesday, October 26th, 2011 HRRMC successfully attested for Stage 1 Meaningful Use of their Electronic Health Records making them the second Critical Access Hospital in Colorado to attest and apply for Medicare EHR Incentive Funds. A CRHC staff member reminisced of this journey stating, “They overcame many obstacles on their journey to Meaningful Use and could not have reached their goal without strong leadership and perseverance.” CRHC was delighted to have had the opportunity to work with Heart of the Rockies as its CO-REC partner to help guide and council them along the way. CRHC continues to support HRRMC and recently celebrated Dr. Loftin, Dr. Sadler and Dr. Moss’s successful attestation to Medicare Meaningful Use in February of this year.
Other notable accomplishments include being named as one of the nation’s Best Hospitals for Patient Experience in Obstetrics by the 2013 Women’s Choice Award from WomenCertified®. HRRMC was also named one of the HealthStrong™ Top 100 Critical Access Hospitals (CAHs) in the United States, which included only four Colorado hospitals.
