Health center implements eClinicalWorks EHR for medical and dental records and behavioral health
WESTBOROUGH, Mass.—October 31, 2017—eClinicalWorks®, a leader in healthcare IT solutions, today announced that Center for Health Education Medicine & Dentistry (CHEMED), a non-profit, Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC), has successfully implemented the eClinicalWorks comprehensive EHR solution for its 66+ providers. Use of the cloud-based technology has supported care coordination between physicians and patients.
“At CHEMED, our mission is to provide quality healthcare to the uninsured and underinsured and to give an integrated package of healthcare to the community,” said Dr. Dovid Friedman, CEO of CHEMED. “I am a firm believer in preventive services and educating and empowering patients on the importance of healthy living. To achieve our mission, we made the switch to eClinicalWorks because of its proven success with community health centers and its commitment to advancing patient and community outcomes. Through a collaborative effort, eClinicalWorks and CHEMED have maximized patient care and enhanced communication between providers and patients through the cloud.”
CHEMED has been leveraging eClinicalWorks 10e, a cloud-based EHR solution, to streamline and automate processes for a more effective patient treatment model, regardless of the setting. The software is the only one that includes an Electronic Medical Record, Electronic Dental Record, and behavioral health module — providing a fully integrated technology platform with each patient’s records. Since implementation, CHEMED has improved operational efficiencies and now provides high-quality, evidence-based care to their patient populations.
“We are proud to be partners with CHEMED to support its mission in promoting healthier lifestyles with its patients,” said Girish Navani, CEO and co-founder of eClinicalWorks. “10e is the most advanced cloud EHR, and provides tools to allow CHEMED to continue its approach to continue to improve the healthcare experience, while empowering staff and delivering the quality of care its patients expect.”
