Superior Consultant Company inks a $45 million information technology outsourcing contract with Central Maine Healthcare Corp. (CMH), a Lewiston, Maine-based health system.
Effective Oct. 1, the five-year agreement will assist CMH in implementing a broad range of vendor products, including Kansas City, Mo.-based Cerner Corp.'s electronic medical records products and related applications.
The consulting company also will provide CMH with outsourcing services, such as data center services, around-the-clock Help Desk services, desktop and network services, disaster recovery services and telecommunications.
Additionally, CMH's systems will migrate entirely to the Superior Consulting Center, which will house the hospitals' computing assets in a secure power and communication redundant facility.
Created in 1982, CMH oversees the Central Maine Medical Center, a 250-bed not-for-profit hospital home to the Central Maine Heart and Vascular Institute, and two rural hospitals.
