Why Information Technology is Vital to Your Organization’s Health

Forward-thinking community hospital CEOs are recognizing that IT solutions don’t exist in a vacuum but can in fact help advance their organization’s goals. Conversely, they also know that out-of-date IT (including inefficient on-premise systems) can hold a hospital back from getting where it needs to go. 

We’re providing these CEOs (and their IT directors) with a roadmap for IT transformation for the future that also enhances hospital performance today.

CHC helps rural and community hospitals throughout the United States improve patient care, increase efficiency, reduce risk, save money and grow ROI by transforming their IT infrastructures from outmoded legacy systems into today’s most cost-effective tools and processes.


We’re proud to work with more than 500 healthcare organizations throughout the United States including:

  • Critical Access Hospitals
  • Rural Hospitals
  • Community Hospitals
  • Independent Hospitals & Health Systems



Our IT team includes numerous dedicated experts. We help 500+ rural healthcare providers across the country.

Here are some of the reasons why they choose to work with CHC.

  • Predictable Costs. You get comprehensive estimates that clearly outline deliverables, timelines and responsibilities in advance. 
  • 24/7/365 Support. Our highly experienced experts can augment your short-staffed IT team, re-tool/re-skill it… or even become your team if needed.
  • True IT Department. CHC’s IT team has experience working on-site in hospital IT departments and understands how their solutions impact hospital operations.

CHC leveraged federal funding for IT upgrades including high-speed internet and disaster recovery. Citing improvements in patient care as well as operational and financial performance, hospital CFO John Olivares calls the upgrades a “quantum leap forward” for the 23-bed critical access hospital.
