WESTBOROUGH, MA.—February 22, 2023— eClinicalWorks®, the largest ambulatory cloud EHR, today announced that Healing Hands Ministries (HHM) is leveraging PRISMA, the industry’s first health information search tool. A Texas community health center, HHM originally selected eClinicalWorks and healow to help the practice provide comprehensive care, improve efficiency, and shorten patient wait times. HHM is using PRISMA to collate medical information from specialties, urgent care facilities, hospitals, and primary care providers, to enable faster and more accurate decision-making and care for its diverse patient population at the point of care.
“With more than 17,000 patients, we needed a solution that would not only cover all of our patients’ needs, but keep all of our practice locations organized,” said Jason Wallace, COO of HHM. “Since implementing PRISMA and all of eClinicalWorks’ solutions, our providers spend less time searching patient records and piecing together medical histories, and more time with patients. We’re now able to gather patient records from hospitals nationwide including Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Dallas, Medical City Dallas Hospital, Methodist Dallas Medical Center, and Children’s Health, all of which operate on either Epic® or Allscripts®. Using eClinicalWorks has helped us to serve our patient population better.”
With more than 57,200 patient visits as of December 2022, HHM uses PRISMA to give providers intelligent, efficient, and user-friendly search capabilities within the patient record for value-based care and continuity of care. Since one of the HHM clinics is in a refugee resettlement location, HHM serves patients that speak approximately 68 different languages. With PRISMA, providers were able to overcome a language barrier with a patient by retrieving their hospital records and providing immediate and life-saving care. By collating information into a readable, searchable table or grid view, providers can coordinate care quickly and make better data-driven clinical decisions. From the dental module and behavioral health module, HHM is identifying gaps in care and filling them in with eClinicalWorks’ broad suite of solutions.
“PRISMA provides organizations like HHM greater insight into their diverse patient population and the ability to make data-driven clinical decisions at the point of care,” says Girish Navani, cofounder and CEO of eClinicalWorks. “Our goal is to support the important work and comprehensive care HHM provides with solutions like PRISMA that reduce waste and promote better interoperability. eClinicalWorks continues to provide unified solutions for health centers including dental, behavioral health, OBGYN, vision – all in one solution.”
