New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene chose eClinicalWorks in a $19.8 million deal as part of its Primary Care Information Project (PCIP) initiative. Initially, 1,300 physicians serving the City’s neediest communities were implemented on eClinicalWorks EMR/PM, and the project has now expanded to include nearly 3,000 providers.
Using EHRs in primary care could actually improve people's health," said Dr. Farzad Mostashari, Assistant New York City Health Commissioner directing New York City's Primary Care Information Project. "They improve care and place much-needed emphasis on preventive medicine. We are pleased to be working with eClinicalWorks to bring this critical technology to the New Yorkers who need it most."
