Cone Health’s Epic EHR & Eagle Physicians & Associates’ eClinicalWorks EHR exchange data to provide improved patient care using the Carequality Interoperability Framework
WESTBOROUGH, Mass.—June 20, 2017—eClinicalWorks®, a leader in healthcare IT solutions, today announces that Eagle Physicians and Associates, a multi-specialty medical group, has experienced successful interoperability using eClinicalWorks comprehensive electronic health records (EHR) for its 61 providers across 11 locations. Use of the cloud-based technology has supported Eagle Physicians in the successful exchange of patient data at the point of care.
“At Eagle Physicians, we are built on an exceptional reputation for providing quality care to patients at every stage,” said Dr. Robert Fried, CMIO, Family Physician of Eagle Physicians & Associates. “With the six-hospital Cone Health as the only health system in town, we needed a bidirectional exchange to share patient records at point of service, especially to make our data available to ED and hospitalists. eClinicalWorks was selected to assist in bridging the gaps that existed in the exchange of patient data and to improve the quality of patient care. I applaud eClinicalWorks for putting significant resources into interoperability and providing it to users at no additional cost.”
By implementing Carequality Interoperability Framework on the eClinicalWorks platform, Eagle Physicians and Associates has achieved improved overall efficiency in data sharing, with not only Cone Health but also other critical exchange partners like UNC-Chapel Hill Medical Center, Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center and Novant Health which are all on Epic. As a multi-specialty group, the seamless exchange of patient data has provided access to critical information and supports the organization’s patient-centered, preventative care approach. Additionally, physicians were able to find missing lab results, identify potential drug-to-drug interactions and make data available to other entities enabling streamlined care transitions.
“Interoperability is essential for improving healthcare delivery,” stated Girish Navani, CEO and co-founder of eClinicalWorks. “eClinicalWorks is committed to interoperability and the exchange of patient health information. With eClinicalWorks, Eagle Physicians and Associates has experienced an improved system to deliver patient care. Immediate access to patient records has enhanced communication by providing the physicians and patients access to critical information at the point of care. To date, hundreds of eClinicalWorks customers are linked to Carequality and/or CommonWell, with more connecting every day.”
