Armonk, NY – AmkaiSolutions™, the industry leader in providing innovative electronic solutions to ambulatory surgery centers, surgical hospitals and surgical practices, announced it has entered into an agreement to provide Canyon View Surgery Center with the AmkaiOffice™ business administrative software and AmkaiCharts™ electronic medical records solution.

Canyon View Surgery Center is a new, state-of-the-art outpatient surgery center in Grand Junction, Colo. The surgery center is a joint venture between local physicians and Community Hospital, and is part of the new 87,000-square-foot Canyon View Medical Plaza. The surgery center features three operating rooms and provides services in orthopedics, urology, ENT, ophthalmology, gynecology, general surgery and cosmetic surgery.

AmkaiOffice is designed to streamline and improve administrative and clinical processes, billing, collections, scheduling, patient registration, patient tracking, inventory management and more. It is designed to seamlessly integrate with AmkaiCharts, the #1-rated* EMR for the ASC, specifically designed for the fast-paced, procedure-driven healthcare delivery model. It provides users with critical patient information at their fingertips, along with powerful data mining, reporting capabilities and accreditation at all levels. Built on input from ASC leaders, the system is known for its exceptional ease of use and implementation, and is utilized in more than 500 operating rooms every day.

Canyon View Surgery Center will initially go live with AmkaiOffice, and then AmkaiCharts at a later date.

“We have simply been blown away by what we’ve seen of the AmkaiSolutions systems,” says Timothy Guyne, administrator of Canyon View Surgery Center. “During the demos, I practically had to pick the chin of the hospital’s clinical director off the floor half a dozen times. With 20 years of ASC experience, there was not a single question we could ask about the different challenges and pitfalls we had experienced in the past that AmkaiSolutions had not already addressed in their systems. Everything we could think of that had been a hiccup for workflow or that created anxiety, AmkaiSolutions already had a solution for it. It was nice to see the AmkaiSolutions team draw so much on their experience in the outpatient world into their systems.”

Guyne continues, “The systems have tremendous flexibility with their user interfaces, which allows us to clearly visualize patient flow and keep patients informed technically and visually by using features such as the Patient Tracking System. The systems come with the most important features already in place, and can be customized to address our specific needs. Everybody at AmkaiSolutions has been amazing and accommodating; it’s really clear that they understand what our business is and have developed systems specifically for the ASC industry and facilities like ours.”

“We are excited to have been selected as Canyon View Surgery Center’s software systems partner, and welcome them to the AmkaiSolutions family,” said AmkaiSolutions CEO Joe Macies. “Canyon View Medical Plaza is a truly impressive outpatient medical center that will attract patients from throughout Colorado’s Grand Valley and surrounding areas. Canyon View Surgery Center is a cornerstone of the medical plaza, and it will play a critical role in delivering the high-quality, low-cost care its patient community needs and deserves. We are thrilled to know our systems will help support these objectives.”
