Athens Regional Health System is one of northeast Georgia's largest healthcare systems. ARHS is made up of an acute care hospital with 350-plus beds, four urgent care centers, a network of quality physicians and specialists, and a home health agency. ARHS was named the Large Hospital of the Year for the State of Georgia by the Georgia Alliance of Community Hospitals. Today, ARHS is recognized as one of the top 100 hospitals in the nation preferred by women.
Having a quality IT system is critical in running any efficient business, and a large hospital such as ARHS is no exception. Louis Duhé, Vice President and CIO, says that the hospital needed a new solution to their IT needs—one that was more efficient than their current in-house developed help desk application.
