West Coast Leader in Providing Healthcare to Correctional Facilities to Use Electronic Medical Records System for Improved Quality of Care
Westborough, Mass.—May 10, 2010—eClinicalWorks®, a market leader in ambulatory clinical systems, today announced that California Forensic Medical Group (CFMG), which provides health care to correctional facilities in 25 counties in the state, has selected eClinicalWorks electronic medical records (EMR) system. Using eClinicalWorks will allow the group to streamline operations and improve the quality of care provided through reporting capabilities and the ability to share data across the counties. This will help in the continuity of care for inmates.
“California Forensic Medical Group is committed to providing the healthcare solutions available to each county it serves,” said Elaine Hustedt, Vice President of Operations and Personnel for California Forensic Medical Group. “When we decided to adopt an EMR system, we required one that was flexible, user-friendly and that had a solid understanding of correctional health workflows. eClinicalWorks met or exceeded all of these criteria and we look forward to working with them.”
CFMG facilities using the eClinicalWorks EMR will be able to streamline processes and promote patient care. The system will also permit providers to utilize chronic and preventative care measures, including those that are unique to this setting such as suicide watch alerts and detox monitoring. eClinicalWorks will also provide CFMG with intake process flows and a behavioral health module.
“eClinicalWorks offers technologies that improve clinical outcomes for a variety of settings,” said Girish Kumar Navani, CEO and co-founder of eClinicalWorks. “Our commitment to customers and experience with Rikers Island makes us a logical solution for correctional facilities. We are honored to have been selected by CFMG.”
