How Technology Can Help Community Hospitals Succeed in 2018 and Beyond by Steven Kelley, CEO

"For New York’s Ellenville Regional Hospital, 2017 was a year of change.

As less expensive outpatient procedures have become more popular, they’ve replaced more profitable inpatient procedures. Hospitals have had to adapt to the new paradigm in order to maintain healthy margins and encourage growth.

Ellenville saw new technology as an opportunity to spark fundamental organizational improvement. The hospital strategically invested in technology that reduced expenses, improved the quality of its patient care, and enabled the organization to develop exciting and important partnerships within their community.

CEO Steven Kelley sat down with us to discuss Ellenville’s transformation and what community hospitals must do to be successful in 2018."
