2018 was an important year for WCH Service Bureau. We learnt a lot and reached new goals. And now we would like to look back to recall those moments.
iSmart EHR – one of the best EHRs of 2018
Our iSmart EHR successfully passed certification and was recognized by Top 10 of best EHR/EMR Solution Providers in 2018 by HealthTech Outlook. The magazine pointed out the most important information about our company and remarked flexibility of the EHR. They also say: “…This client-centered approach has been a major factor triggering WCH’s growth over the years.” Well done, WCH!
Persistence and knowledge pays off
Another remarkable achievement was attained by Credentialing Department. Oftentimes providers are faced with an inability to enroll in specific insurance plans due to closed panels. Our credentialing specialists always evaluate if clients’ specialty or population served could warrant an exception. In 2018, credentialing specialists succeeded in encouraging several insurance carriers for an exception. And after several unsuccessful attempts, a favorable decision was given. Well done, WCH and congratulations to newly enrolled providers!

HOLD A HAND, CHANGE A LIFE
WCH visited a Yerevan Special Educational Complex for Children with Hearing Disabilities. Our correspondent talked with the director of a boarding school for deaf and hearing-impaired children in Armenia, to find out how these special children master ordinary subjects, what their interests are, and what they dream about. There are currently 130 students: “Those who live in Yerevan go home in the evening, and come to classes in the morning,” explains the school’s director, Hasmik Badalyan. “But most of the students come from other cities and villages – they live on school premises.”
The children have a normal school curriculum at the boarding school, but classes are conducted in two languages: Armenian and sign language. In the 10th through 12th grades, teenagers learn a profession: some master sewing, others cooking, others rug- or shoe-making. Training in haircutting and doing manicures and makeup is also available.
The years spent at the boarding school cultivate self-confidence in the children, and as they enter adulthood, they are ready to fight for happiness. Some graduates pursue higher education.
“I’m in my 3rd year at the Institute for Physical Education. I want to be a teacher or coach,” says 20-year-old Argishti Babayan, who took second place at the World Deaf Wrestling Championships.
Of course, even good schools have their problems. Education and accommodation at the school are free for the students, but government funding isn’t enough to cover repairs. Also the children work on computers that are 10 years old, although the teacher is even prepared to teach them robotics. A special dream of the students is their own movie theater. They can’t watch movies in the normal city theaters, as they can’t see the sign language interpreter’s hands in the dark.
The school’s employees work small miracles every day, as they help children with disabilities. Let’s help these miracles keep happening in future!
