PRESS RELEASE: Oakwood Healthcare System Partners with Unibased Systems Architecture to Streamline Healthcare Consumer Access to Care

Chesterfield, MO., March 23, 2010: Unibased Systems Architecture, Inc. (Unibased), the leading provider of enterprise-wide resource management solutions, today announced that Oakwood Healthcare System has selected its consumer portal, Consumer Access and Scheduling for Healthcare (CASH), to simplify and expedite access to services. Unibased’s CASH provides consumers enhanced flexibility and instant access to healthcare services during these times of busy, on-the-go patient lifestyles. The web application is fully integrated with Unibased’s ForSite2020® product suite and provides 24/7 access to scheduling and registration, eliminating the usual impediments consumers experience in obtaining their healthcare needs.

“Improving convenience and streamlining access to care for our patients is an extremely important and ongoing effort for Oakwood Healthcare”, stated Lynn Flynn, Oakwood Healthcare’s Corporate Director of Revenue Cycle. “The consumer portal from Unibased is going to be a powerful addition to our corporate access center and will give patients the flexibility they need to be more informed and in charge of their healthcare delivery. We are excited about all of the opportunities this will provide to our patients and providers alike as we continue to meet their changing needs and priorities in these times of busy lifestyles and increased demand.”

According to Larry Covington, Unibased’s President and CEO, “Today’s healthcare consumer demands convenience. They expect more patient-friendly services that provide more information about treatment options, quality and price. Unibased’s CASH is a completely integrated web-based patient portal designed to improve communications between consumers and their healthcare providers by providing a patient-centered, consumer-focused model. We have to remember that this is all about the patient, and compassion for their needs in this day of rapid pace includes convenience. Consumers are more informed and in control of their healthcare decisions, and realize there are choices out there. They require the same conveniences they receive in other industries, including unrestricted access to scheduling services. By embracing an open, transparent and patient-centered environment, huge gains in safety and quality are attained.”
