Hello, I’m Dawn DiPaola and today I will be discussing recent EHR vendor selection news.
Jackson Clinic in West Tennessee has selected Allscripts EHR for its 120 physicians and 10 mid-level practitioners. The clinic will integrate the EHR with its Allscripts Practice Management solution to enhance quality of care and automation of all clinical and financial activities. Allscripts was selected based on the clinic’s prior experience using the Misys EHR product.
Dr. Keith Williams, Medical Director of The Jackson Clinic stated:
"We wanted a long-term partner that could provide a seamless transition from our old system, and one that also had the commitment and resources to continue innovating EHR technology as well as enabling us to qualify for federal EHR incentive payments."
In addition, Central Connecticut Medical Management selected the Ingenix CareTracker practice management and e-prescribing system. The new technology will help simplify administration and enhance patient care across its physician network.
CCMM operates 16 offices with 59 physicians at four patient care centers in Connecticut. The centers provide inpatient and outpatient care for 135,000 patient visits and procedures each year. CareTracker is expected to help the medical centers manage patient scheduling and registration more efficiently, improve claims and billing accuracy, and increase access to patient medical information.
And lastly, Peninsula Regional Medical Center has chosen eClinicalWorks EHR for its Salisbury, Maryland medical group. The eClinicalWorks EHR will help it streamline clinical processes between employed practice locations and will work with affiliated physicians to exchange EHR data. The medical center also selected the eClinicalWorks Electronic Health eXchange, which will allow access to health information across the medical centers’ practices and acute care system.
There are many more EHR acquisitions to report on, and we’ll continue this news in the next segment.
