eClinicalWorks announced that it will launch new cloud-based services for acute care EHR settings and revenue cycle management at HIMSS18 next week.

The platform is designed to create a "unified EHR," with a seamless workflow to share data between ambulatory and acute care settings, officials said in a statement. The acute care EHR includes a wide range of capabilities from CPOR data to infection control and referrals management.

The tool will start at $599 per bed, per month, with no upfront charge for licensing, which eCW CEO Girish Navani said will ensure hospitals "have no financial barriers to transition to eCW."

eCW also announced that Texas-based Hamilton Healthcare System, a 42-bed community hospital will be the first to go live with the new tool later this year, expanding its current relationship.

According to officials, the tool was designed with guidance from clinicians and will give Hamilton clinicians with a dashboard that shows all clinical details for the inpatient and emergency departments, as well as the operating room.

"It's always been our goal to have one unified EHR," Hamilton Healthcare CIO Chad Reinert said in a statement. "As a small community hospital, we concluded that a progressive unified EHR for inpatient, ER and ambulatory settings simply was not available for a cost that we could afford."

eClinicalWorks is in Booths 145.
