Adrian Rawlinson, MD – Director of Medical Informatics, Brown & Toland Physicians, San Francisco CA

Brown & Toland Physicians, located in San Francisco, is an independent practice association (IPA) of more than 1,500 physicians. The Director of Medical Informatics, Adrian Rawlinson, MD, discusses the future of the health information technology (HIT) industry with Dr. Eric Fishman of EHRtv™. Dr. Rawlinson specializes in orthopedic surgery. The medical practice adopted the Allscripts EMR (electronic medical record) system in 2005. Early on, it was noticed that the implementation of the electronic medical record (EMR) software should be driven by the clinical champion of the practice. In addition, the practice administrator is a key member with deciding proper workflow procedures for life after the EMR is implemented. Workflow is defined as the patient process from start to finish, including registration and patient charting. As a new adopter of electronic medical record (EMR) software, medical practices can expect an abundance of changes that will benefit the medical practice when transitioning to a paperless medical office. Brown & Toland Physicians experience an electronic medical record (EMR) transition time of up to two to three months, before becoming completely paperless. Like many early adopters of electronic medical record/ electronic health record (EMR/EHR) software, the independent practice association (IPA) of Brown & Toland Physicians is well positioned to take advantage of the. Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health (HITECH) Act funding; which is part of the Stimulus package known as the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA).
