WESTBOROUGH, Mass.—November 17, 2014—eClinicalWorks®, a leader in ambulatory healthcare IT solutions, today announces that New York’s Arnot Health has chosen eClinicalWorks comprehensive electronic health records (EHR) solution and eClinicalWorks Electronic Health eXchange (eEHX®) for its 160 providers and 45 residents. These technologies will aid Arnot Health in creating a community health record and in pursuing several quality of care initiatives, resulting in improved care.
“Arnot Health partners with each person we serve in order to maximize their physical, emotional, social and spiritual health,” said Dr. Robert K. Lambert, President and CEO of Arnot Health. “We selected eClinicalWorks because it provides us with the best overall solution to our functional, cost of ownership and strategic requirements. In addition to the vision and flexibility of this system, we spoke with current clients who gave excellent feedback on the outstanding quality of eClinicalWorks’ implementation and on-going support. This indicated to us that eClinicalWorks’ focus was not just about being our vendor, but about being a strategic partner and helping us as we continue to align ourselves with the paradigm shift occurring in our healthcare delivery system.”
Implementing eClinicalWorks will assist in streamlining processes between providers and encourage more preventative-focused care to patients. eClinicalWorks Patient Portal enables secure, two-way communication between Arnot Health’s providers and its patients, encouraging preventative care and increased engagement. eEHX will connect a variety of systems, creating a community record that will provide physicians with access to patients’ vital health information and allow physicians to exchange data more effectively. The group is also turning to eClinicalWorks to assist with its Patient-Centered Medical Home and Physician Quality Reporting System (PQRS) initiatives.
“Arnot Health is a premier healthcare system in its region, focused on delivering high-quality services to all its patients,” said Girish Navani, CEO and co-founder of eClinicalWorks. “By implementing eClinicalWorks, Arnot Health will benefit from our extensive experience with multi-specialty groups. We work with our customers to ensure that our technology exceeds the needs of more than 50 specialties and sub-specialties. Arnot Health will have the tools available to create real-time community health records, access labs and test results, utilize clinical decision support and engage its patients.”
