For example, Citizens Memorial Hospital (CMH) in Bolivar, Missouri, and Stanford Hospital and Clinics in Palo Alto, California, deliver care in a paperless manner, readily sharing clinical information across healthcare providers and using electronic collaboration networks. CMH was the first rural hospital to achieve stage 7 in the HIMSS Analytics Model for completely electronic use. What did they do differently? This could be an excellent case study, because it could be one of multiple reasons.

The reason for this assumption is that the HITECH Act provides reimbursement to hospitals and clinics (especially those with high levels of Medicaid patients), in order to provide a more even playing field for both high capital and low capital hospitals to adopt electronic medical records. But, technology adoption has been seen to occur at varying levels and speeds. While some hospitals (the majority of which are for-profit) have achieved nearly complete technology implementation and meaningful use status, other hospitals, such as nonprofits, especially lower budget and those with a high volume of low income patients, are still stagnating at the technology adoption phase and are unable to produce technological efficiencies.

This could be an excellent case study, because it could be one of multiple reasons. The area itself is surrounded by an extremely affluent set of neighborhoods, so it could be that donors were helpful in pushing the hospital along, and charity care doctors were abundant. But, most likely is the presence of competition in such a market, where the rural hospitals see the kind of care being provided around them, and realize that they need to stay connected to these other hospitals, and the best way to do this is to go electronic and speak the same language as their affluent counterparts.
