Community and Critical Access Hospitals Select Oracle Health CommunityWorks

Several new healthcare organizations across the United States recently selected Oracle Health’s CommunityWorks, an integrated electronic health record (EHR) that supports the clinical, financial and operational needs of small hospital operations in acute and outpatient settings. These include Crawford County Memorial Hospital, Golden Plains Community Hospital, Murray-Calloway County Hospital, Nashville General Hospital, Sarah D. Culbertson Memorial Hospital and Culbertson Clinic.

Oracle Health recognizes the challenges faced by healthcare providers in communities and critical access hospitals, such as geographic isolation, workforce shortages, skills gaps and dwindling resources. CommunityWorks is designed for community, rural and critical access hospitals to help overcome these challenges.

“On National Rural Health Day this week, we appreciate the work of rural providers who often care for their neighbors. Oracle Health believes everyone deserves access to high-quality care, no matter where they live,” said Oracle Health Executive Vice President and General Manager Travis Dalton said. “We launched CommunityWorks solutions over a decade ago to bring innovative technology to some of the smallest hospitals across the country. With resources and staffing limited within communities, we are helping ensure they have the right tools to support efficient and quality care. “

Healthcare organizations that have recently chosen CommunityWorks include:

  • Crawford County Memorial Hospital (CCMH) is a 25-bed community hospital with an outpatient clinic. It has been serving the Denison, Iowa community of more than 8,000 residents for more than 70 years. CCMH selected CommunityWorks because it is a fully integrated EHR across all sites and will help streamline internal operations.
  • Golden Plains Community Hospital in Texas is a 25-bed critical access facility providing comprehensive health care services. After evaluating multiple EHR providers, it selected Oracle Health’s system, which is fully integrated across the continuum of care.
  • Murray-Calloway County Hospital in Kentucky needed to transform its EHR provider and unify its technology under one solution to serve as a single source of all patient data for its staff and caregivers. It selected CommunityWorks and Oracle Health products that support the oncology specialty and simplify the infusion suite process. It will also provide access to health data through a unified patient portal.
  • Nashville General Hospital, a public safety net hospital in Tennessee, is partnering with Oracle Health to implement CommunityWorks to replace multiple systems with a unified EHR.

In addition to these new customers, Sarah D. Culbertson Memorial Hospital and Culbertson Clinic also recently completed CommunityWorks go-live. They selected a new EHR to provide an integrated framework to communicate across the organization and support patients in a streamlined and secure way to electronically manage their health and wellness information.

KLAS Research recognized Oracle Health’s double-digit hospital growth in its 2023 U.S. Hospital EMR Market Share Report, underscoring Oracle Health’s strong position in the 200-bed or smaller U.S. hospital segment, where the company has led the way for the fifth consecutive year. Field won the most contract rows.
