    Facility Expects Implementation To Be Complete By The Fourth Quarter
    Of 2019

    MOBILE, Ala.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Evident LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of CPSI (NASDAQ: CPSI) and a
    leading provider of electronic health record (EHR) systems and services,
    announced today that Oklahoma Spine Hospital, a specialty surgical
    hospital located in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, has selected the
    cloud-hosted Thrive EHR solution to replace their existing system
    through a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) payment model. They are expected
    to be live on Thrive by the fourth quarter of 2019.

    Oklahoma Spine Hospital started an EHR selection process when they were
    informed that their current vendor’s EHR was not certified to meet the
    requirements of the Promoting Interoperability Program. In order to meet
    their goal of attesting to CMS for the 2019 reporting period, they knew
    they had to explore other options. Once the search began, the team from
    Oklahoma Spine Hospital realized quickly that Evident was a good fit for
    them.

    The Evident Thrive solution will provide Oklahoma Spine Hospital with a
    level of external and internal interoperability they do not have,
    allowing providers to focus more on the patient and less on paperwork.
    Additionally, Evident’s proven track record with Oklahoma Spine
    Hospital’s sister facility, Black Hills Surgical Hospital, gave
    credibility to the Thrive EHR solution and the team from Evident.

    “While finding a certified EHR that would allow us to meet the 2019
    reporting year requirements for the Promoting Interoperability Program
    instigated our search, we are gaining much more than that with Evident,”
    said Gary McCool, technology director of Oklahoma Spine Hospital. “We
    believe the functionality of the Thrive EHR will also lead to higher
    levels of patient satisfaction.”

    McCool added, “The deciding factor for us was being able to see the
    success that a similar specialty hospital is experiencing using Thrive.
    We are very happy with our decision and look forward to partnering with
    Evident for a long time to come.”

    Boyd Douglas, president and chief executive officer of CPSI, said,
    “Meeting important regulatory requirements such as Promoting
    Interoperability shouldn’t be a distraction for healthcare organizations
    like Oklahoma Spine Hospital. We take input from our clients very
    seriously to ensure that our solutions not only check those mandatory
    boxes from a regulatory perspective, but also to ensure that the patient
    and provider are not forgotten along the way. We are very happy that
    Gary and the rest of the team from Oklahoma Spine Hospital chose Evident
    as their healthcare IT partner, and we look forward to our continued
    partnership.”
