eClinicalWorks®, a market leader in ambulatory clinical systems, today announced that Ohio Orthopedic Center of Excellence has chosen eClinicalWorks comprehensive electronic health records (EHR) solution for its 59 providers across multiple locations. Use of this technology will help improve practice speed and efficiency.
“Ohio Orthopedic Center of Excellence is dedicated to providing world class care and first class caring,” said Kathie Dodds, EMR project lead for Ohio Orthopedic Center of Excellence. “We chose eClinicalWorks due to the fully integrated platform making reporting features seamless; opportunities for interoperability in the Columbus medical community, along with its success in aiding practices to achieve meaningful use, customizable workflows and templates, and responsiveness in research and development.”
eClinicalWorks includes features and templates customized for more than 50 specialties and sub-specialties to aid multi-specialty groups, including Ohio Orthopedic Center of Excellence, in standardizing on an EHR that is beneficial to all specialties represented. The system also helps providers take advantage of provisions in the HITECH Act, which authorizes the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) to impart a reimbursement incentive for physician and hospital providers who demonstrate the “meaningful use” of an EHR.
“eClinicalWorks has a tremendous track record in successfully deploying orthopedic practices,” said Girish Kumar Navani, CEO and co-founder of eClinicalWorks. “We look forward to working with Ohio Orthopedic Center of Excellence and helping optimize the practice by improving the speed with which they can deliver quality care.”
As part of eClinicalWorks’ comprehensive EHR solution, Ohio Orthopedic Center of Excellence will implement the following:
• eClinicalWorks EMR/PM enables clinicians to manage patient flow, immediately access patient records in-house or remotely, electronically communicate with the referring physicians and securely send consult notes and clinical data;
• eClinicalWorks Patient Portal allows patients and doctors to communicate securely via the Internet;
• eBO® performs clinical and financial analytics;
• eClinicalMessenger® acts as a messaging service that utilizes Voice-over-Internet Protocol (VoIP) to enable physician practices to send messages, in batches or singularly, to patients for aspects of care. This includes appointment reminders, lab results, diagnostic imaging and statements.
