Orthopaedic Institute of Ohio sees great success using eClinicalWorks EHR to improve efficiency and productivity

WESTBOROUGH, MA.—December 22, 2022— eClinicalWorks®, the largest ambulatory cloud EHR, today announced that Orthopaedic Institute of Ohio’s success with eClinicalWorks technology to provide comprehensive care, improve efficiency, and lower patient wait times by leveraging the industry’s first health information search tool, PRISMA. With PRISMA, Orthopaedic Institute of Ohio is able to streamline patient record retrieval from different hospitals nationwide without any custom integration, which is facilitating better medical decision-making. The practice is able to pull lab reports and imaging data from outside sources directly into eClinicalWorks, resulting in exponential cost savings for their patients.

“With PRISMA, we’re able to aggregate data better now. We no longer have to rely on hospital IT to gather key patient data, which enables us to provide better care to patients who are traveling or reside in multiple locations, “said Ben Broseke, IT director at OIO. “We can bring that information directly into eClinicalWorks and view it. We can also search using keywords for more information or more meaningfully use that data. We’ve improved our operational efficiency and leveraged data for value-based care.”
With PRISMA, Orthopaedic Institute of Ohio can:

  • Interoperate with every EHR participating in CommonWell and Carequality to access any patient record,
  • Collate information into a readable, searchable table or grid view,
  • Aggregate patient information from insurance payers and patients’ wearable devices to promote better interoperability,
  • Integration with the eClinicalWorks EHR
  • Leverage search insights to improve value-based care.

Working with hospitals nationwide and throughout northwest Ohio meant that staff at Orthopaedic Institute of Ohio was spending several hours retrieving patient data. PRISMA streamlines the search process, which would otherwise add up to an additional 10 minutes to every patient visit with a traditional EHR. PRISMA gives providers intelligent, efficient, and user-friendly search capabilities within the patient record for value-based care. Using PRISMA, eClinicalWorks providers exchange more than 2.6 million patient records every day.
