Perkins County Health System (PCHS) in southwest Nebraska is a county-owned health network consisting of 1 hospital, 2 family practice clinics, a specialty clinic, a nursing home and assisted living facility, and a daycare facility. PCHS has approximately 250 employees servicing a 100-mile radius due to their patient care reputation.
In fiscal 2018 PCHS started seeing several issues with their SharePoint intranet which resulted in a decision to review other intranet vendors. In mid-2019 PCHS began an implementation of OnSemble Intranet for Healthcare which they branded as The Hot Spot.
The intranet project team had fun developing the various pages they originally had with SharePoint and adding many more. The team was inspired by best practices and examples shared by OnSemble customers in the OnSemble User Community, Spark.
Overall, PCHS is quite pleased with the OnSemble intranet implementation of The Hot Spot. Dee Dee Dunlap, Network Security Administrator, summarized one of the main benefits of their intranet: “OnSemble has helped us streamline, standardize and centralize everything.”
PCHS offers this advice to new customers of OnSemble Intranet:
- Get involved right away with Spark, the OnSemble customer community. Ask how others have solved for “X”. The OnSemble Spark Community is very active, helpful and willing to share ideas and examples.
- Don’t worry about your theme early on; you can get distracted. Focus on building your pages; the theme will evolve.
