Westborough, Mass.—November 16, 2009—eClinicalWorks®, a market leader in ambulatory clinical systems, today announced that Neighborhood Healthcare, which serves Riverside and San Diego counties, has selected eClinicalWorks unified electronic medical records (EMR) and practice management (PM) solution along with eClinicalWorks Enterprise Business Optimizer’s (eBO) enhanced reporting capabilities for its 115 providers across 11 locations.
“Electronic medical records are the next step in helping us provide high quality, cost-effective healthcare to all of our patients,” said Tracy Ream, CEO of Neighborhood Healthcare. “eClinicalWorks has a long history of successful deployments in health centers. Using eClinicalWorks will increase the quality of care our patients already receive, helping us reach our goals,” Ream continued.
eClinicalWorks EMR/PM will allow Neighborhood Healthcare to streamline processes between locations and promote patient care while reducing costs. The system has been enhanced according to the stringent reporting and billing requirements that apply to nonprofit community health centers, ensuring there is no interruption in the funding that helps pay for patient visits. Neighborhood Healthcare has also chosen to implement eBO, which uses meta-data to give the practice more flexibility through the creation of customized reports and by performing clinical and financial analysis.
“Health centers, including Neighborhood Healthcare, perform a necessary function in our communities,” said Girish Kumar Navani, CEO and co-founder of eClinicalWorks. “eClinicalWorks has been working with community health centers nationally and in California specifically to ensure its solutions serve as important resources to meet the requirements for these centers, including providing OSHPD reports for Medicaid. Neighborhood Healthcare’s selection of eClinicalWorks is a validation of our strategy and vision in this area.”
