Separate Reports Offer a Tool to Help Medical Providers Select Appropriate Electronic Medical Records System; eClinicalWorks Viewed Favorably in Reports

Westborough, Mass.—December 11, 2009—In two separate reports released in November 2009 by IDC Health Insights, eClinicalWorks® earned high scores for its unified electronic medical records (EMR) and practice management (PM) solution that is used by ambulatory practices of all sizes. Both reports focused on electronic health and medical records for the ambulatory market, with one report targeting the small to midsize practice and the other geared toward large practices.

IDC Health Insights provides research-based advisory and consulting services focused on market and technology developments in the healthcare industry. The reports, titled Vendor Assessment: The Industry Short List of Electronic Health and Electronic Medical Records for Large Ambulatory Practices and Vendor Assessment: The Industry Short List of Electronic Health and Electronic Medical Records for Small and Midsize Ambulatory Practices, identify the leading EMR and electronic health records (EHR) solutions used by the ambulatory market. Designed to help medical providers in this market select the EMR/EHR product that best suits their needs, the reports examined eClinicalWorks alongside nine other companies in the small and midsize category and six for the large. The company was only one of three that was evaluated in both reports.

“ARRA funding has heightened the demand, and tightened the timelines for implementing EMRs. For this reason, it is important to provide a way for providers to sort through the high number of suppliers in this market and select those that meet the functionality, workflow, budget and technology needs of their practices, while allowing providers to demonstrate meaningful use in time to qualify for ARRA reimbursement,” stated Judy Hanover, a research manager at IDC Health Insights, who authored the reports. “eClinicalWorks was rated highly in many of the areas that we focused on, including general functionality, functionality for meaningful use, interoperability, customer satisfaction and cost.”

During the research, IDC Health Insights independently evaluated vendors’ technology offerings and financial viability, surveying vendors and their customers based on comprehensive assessment criteria measuring how well their applications fit market needs and the confidence current customers have in the solutions. eClinicalWorks received high scores in each of those areas.

“eClinicalWorks customers have always been heavily involved in the development and delivery of our solutions,” said Girish Kumar Navani, CEO and co-founder of eClinicalWorks. “This approach has allowed us to offer the most intuitive functionality to help our customers deliver the highest quality of healthcare possible. We are honored by our strong performance in both IDC Health Insights’ reports.”
