KING OF PRUSSIA, Pa. – February 07, 2012 –MRO Corp., a leading provider of disclosure management services and applications for healthcare organizations, today announced a contract with Albuquerque-based Presbyterian Healthcare Services to provide release-of-information and audit tracking services.

Presbyterian, New Mexico’s only private, not-for-profit healthcare system, will utilize MRO’s services across all eight of its hospitals and more than 30 satellite clinics.
“In an era when regulatory compliance is a driving force behind many operations, large health systems such as Presbyterian can benefit from the enterprise-wide approach we offer to disclosure management,” says Don Hardwick, director of compliance and client relations at MRO. “We are thrilled that the leadership at Presbyterian shares our commitment to streamlined processes and ensuring the highest levels of compliance and oversight across all of their facilities.”
Tamara Hidalgo, health information management director at Presbyterian Healthcare Services, says that in addition to selecting MRO’s services because of their emphasis on compliance and security, her team chose MRO for their unique approach to monitoring quality assurance.
“MRO’s quality assurance is clear in every encounter we have with them, and their attention to customer service has been unwavering throughout the entire implementation,” says Hidalgo. “We are confident that switching to MRO for our ROI and audit tracking management will give us a more accurate picture of information being disclosed at our facilities and in turn boost the quality of our service to a higher level.”
