Client News: Bay Area Health District Purchases Surgery Management System

Bay Area Health District (dba Bay Area Hospital) of Coos Bay, Oregon has purchased the ForSite2020® periOperative Resource Management System (ORMS). Unibased was selected as a result of competition with several surgery management system vendors.

According to Bob Adams, Bay Area Hospital, Director of Information Services, “The Unibased product exceeded our published requirements, but most importantly, Unibased demonstrated a willingness to meet our unique needs with contractual guarantees. All of their client references were helpful and straightforward. Unibased personnel were knowledgeable and experienced with our current in-house vendors, and up and down the line, everyone just felt more comfortable with Unibased”.

Phil Amelung, a Principal Consultant with Unibased, indicated “The Bay Area Hospital steering committee was sure to include a broad representation from the c-suite, information services, clinical informatics, and the surgery department. They went well beyond system feature/function in examining other important vendor qualities including the vendors’ ability to keep promises, history of successful integration projects and experience of implementation staff. No stone was left unturned. They are the first Amerinet hospital member we have signed since the inception of our contracted supplier agreement last September, and represent our first significant collaboration with Draeger. Bay Area is very influential as the largest acute care facility on the southwest Oregon coast with a high volume surgery operation. This is already a great partnership and it will only get better. We are all anxious to begin the implementation in early January, and Unibased is pleased to expand its west coast presence.”
