Steve Adkins, MD – Holston Medical Clinic
Dr. Steve Adkins, a family practice physician, discusses the implementation of Allscripts ™ EHR (electronic health record), at the medical practice of Holston Medical Clinic. He believes the key to a successful electronic medical record (EMR) implementation is getting everyone within the medical practice involved and planning early. Especially with multi-specialty groups, it is important to involve the physicians, nurses, and administrative staff in the EMR implementation process. Like many early adopters of EMR/EHR software, Holston Medical Clinic 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). The medical practice will likely receive the maximum amount of federal reimbursements. Due to the electronic medical record system, the medical practice has the analytics process in place to provide accurate reporting on the clinical and administrative side of the medical practice for all patient records. Dr. Adkins looks forward to an aggressive movement to Cloud Computing Architecture, where all electronic patient records are available from a central location.
