Featuring a Discussion with Two Community Hospital CEOs  

Tuesday, February 20, 2024 
1 - 2 p.m. Eastern; noon - 1 p.m. Central; 10 - 11 a.m. Pacific  

On-demand Webinar


Community and critical access hospitals are facing a myriad of challenges in running their organizations — including budgeting and staffing restraints, supply chain costs and low reimbursement. In this webinar, hear from two community hospital CEOs from St. James Parish Hospital and Montgomery County Memorial Hospital and Clinics on how they’re leveraging technology to help navigate these challenges.  

You’ll hear how technology improvements provided them the opportunity to help transition from using antiquated electronic health record (EHR) systems that lack integration to a more seamless care experience. Learn how these two community hospitals are thriving with an integrated EHR and positively making an impact on their patients and clinical staff.

Attendees Will Learn:

  • The core challenges that rural, community and critical access hospitals face in operating their businesses.
  • How an integrated EHR and health care IT tools can help be a solution in overcoming the day-to-day challenges.
  • Discover how the two community hospitals are leveraging technology to improve the experiences for both patients and clinicians.
