Lori Mallory – CEO, Kansas City Internal Medicine

Kansas City Internal Medicine (KCIM) group has been using Allscripts ™ electronic medical record (EMR) system since 2004. CEO, Lori Mallory discusses with EHRtv™, how converting from paper patient charts to electronic medical records (EMR) affected the workflow of the medical practice. By implementing the Allscripts electronic medical record (EMR) and practice management (PM) systems, everything about the medical practice changed in a positive way. The EMR system has streamlined the medical practice, enabling much higher quality to the patient experience. In addition, practicing physicians are able to access all of the patient information in real time, while connecting from any location. The robust electronic record (EMR) database grants physicians access to all patient record information, and the medical practice is able to connect at all times. The EMR database makes access to a wealth of information, directly improving the quality of healthcare for their patients.

Recently, KCIM was selected as the “Number 1 Small Business in Kansas City” by the Kansas City Chamber of Commerce. Mallory believes that the winning the award was due in large part to their commitment to health information technology (HIT), through their adoption of Allscripts electronic medical record (EMR) and practice management (PM) systems.

Kansas City Internal Medicine has see an impressive return on investment, or ROI from the Allscripts electronic medical record (EMR) and practice management (PM) software systems. From the start, KCIM was able to reduce medical transcription, saving costs to the internal medicine medical practice. Mallory cites greater quality of patient care as the greatest return. She believes with health information technology (HIT), it is important to reinvest in newer, better technology to truly improve patient care nationwide. Like many practicing physicians using electronic medical records (EMRs), Mallory is excited about the ability to and connect their data with other physicians.
