“We identified a need to improve some of our internal processes to better support the state-of-the-art health care that we deliver at our three hospitals,” said David Dillehunt, chief information officer at FirstHealth. “As a longtime customer, we trust Bottomline’s ability to deliver easy to use, intuitive solutions that simplify processes for patients, clinicians and staff. Bottomline’s Inprotica™ workflow solution will play a critical role in our ability ‘to care for people,’ which is our core purpose, and to deliver the best patient experience possible.”
