EDEN PRAIRIE, MN -- (Marketwired) -- 09/10/13 -- Mediture announced today that Huron Valley PACE of Ypsilanti, MI, a leader in senior care serving southeast Michigan, has selected TruChart's comprehensive electronic health records (EHR) solution for its new PACE location under development. Huron Valley PACE will open at 2940 Ellsworth Road in Ypsilanti Township, with services to be provided inside a 23,000 square foot facility. United Methodist Retirement Communities (UMRC) and the Area Agency on Aging 1B are developing this PACE program to provide services throughout Washtenaw, Monroe and bordering areas of adjacent counties. Within 4 years, the program will serve 180 adults and create approximately 150 jobs.
"We evaluated TruChart in use at another PACE organization, and were impressed by its user friendliness. Also, the company has an excellent reputation for providing customer support. We wanted an EHR that will evolve to meet regulatory requirements and TruChart has a great track record in that area," said Tim McIntyre, UMRC Director of Business Development.
Huron Valley PACE will adopt the full TruChart LIFE suite including the TruChart electronic health record, Claims Processing and Adjudication module, ePrescribing and the TruChart Analytics eReporting module.
The launch of TruChart at the fourth PACE organization in Michigan extends Mediture's lead in providing unique and comprehensive solutions for the Program of All-Inclusive Care (PACE) market. PACE programs provide high-quality care to patients with fixed financial resources, and offer new alternatives to seniors who wish to live independently in their communities. The software will also improve continuity of care across multiple settings, allowing critical information to be accessible at the point of care.
