Orchard Software Press Release: For Immediate Release

Carmel, IN (June 1, 2023) — Orchard Software has partnered with Emerus Holdings Inc. for implementation of its Orchard® Point-of-Care™ software solution. Emerus, the nation’s first and largest operator of small-format neighborhood hospitals, will leverage Orchard Point-of-Care’s high level of configurability to support its unique and diverse point-of-care testing (POCT) program. Emerus has successfully deployed Orchard Point-of-Care in their eight Dallas-Fort Worth hospitals, with plans to continue implementation in the remaining testing hospitals in San Antonio, El Paso, Oklahoma City, Pittsburgh and Milwaukee. With Orchard Point-of-Care, Emerus can standardize POCT activities, employ POCT tools for diverse workflows, and ensure data privacy and connectivity for their proactive patient care model.

Emerus chose to partner with Orchard after a thorough laboratory information system (LIS) search. “As we grow our network of neighborhood hospitals, we need a robust LIS that is scalable and sustainable for our unique needs,” said Shannon Gabrysch, Vice President of Support Services. “Orchard’s customer-friendly software streamlines laboratory services with increased efficiency, enhanced reporting, and built-in quality control functions that enable us to improve patient outcomes.”

“We are excited to work with Emerus and be a part of their innovative, proactive patient care services,” said Billie Whitehurst, CEO of Orchard Software. “With Orchard Point-of-Care, Emerus can continue to grow its services and achieve its mission of providing quality care to the communities that need it most.”
