Thayer County Health Services (TCHS), a critical access hospital located in Hebron, Neb., is implementing Mirth Meaningful Use Exchange (Mirth MUx) from Irvine, Calif.-based

Mirth Corporation.

The company claims Mirth MUx can expedite the achievement of proposed meaningful use criteria necessary to collect incentive payments for EHR implementation. The solution enables healthcare organizations to securely exchange clinical information either directly or via the Nationwide Health Information Network (NHIN) using the open source NHIN CONNECT solution. It is designed to support standards such as HL7 and the Continuity of Care Document, it says.

For Thayer, deploying Mirth MUx represents a critical step in its plan to achieve stage 7 in the HIMSS Analytics ratings, says the company.

Serving Thayer County and surrounding communities, TCHS is comprised of a 19-bed critical access hospital and clinic in Hebron, and five satellite clinics in Bruning, Chester, Davenport, Deshler and Milligan.
