Upgrades of Many eClinicalWorks Solutions Also Revealed
Las Vegas, eclinicalworks Users’ Conference—September 13, 2009—eClinicalWorks®, a market leader in ambulatory clinical systems, today announced eClinicalWorks P2P, a tool for improving healthcare collaboratively. eClinicalWorks P2P introduces interoperability for peer-to-peer communications not only to other eClinicalWorks users, but any provider/practice that the provider and practice interacts with for patient care.
Records are now shared electronically, so practices do not have to fax communications, including referrals and patient charts, to other providers. Practices will also be able to schedule appointments and communicate generic messages regarding patient care. P2P is an interoperable, scalable and secure way to communicate while enhancing patient care.
“Even once a practice is using an electronic medical records system, faxing is still common for communicating with other practices, which does not allow for continuity of care,” said Girish Kumar Navani, CEO and co-founder of eClinicalWorks. “Our mission is to improve healthcare by providing technology and services to reduce costs, reduce errors and improve the quality of care. These goals can not be achieved without showing continuity of care. eClinicalWorks P2P, along with the enhancements to our additional solutions, allows our customers to improve healthcare collaboratively.”
Enhancements to other eClinicalWorks solutions include:
- Enterprise Business Optimizer (eBO) 2.0 – eBO has been accelerated to include integration of the eClinicalWorks Registry with eBO reports, enhanced clinical metadata and reports, enhanced financial metadata data and reports, and added security integration with eClinicalWorks EMR/PM Reports exchange via eCWShare (http://ecwshare.eclinicalworks.com).
- eClinicalWorks Electronic Health eXchange (eEHX) 3.0 – Some enhancements include split screen patient lookup, threshold settings for patient matching, patient reconciliation, community-wide measure reporting and population health alerts.
- eClinicalMessenger 2.0 – eClinicalWorks is piloting 2.0 which includes a further refined back end infrastructure, new Web-based screens for easier navigation, additional administrative options, SMS text messaging and integration with eClinicalWorks Registry.
- eClinicalMobile 2.0 – eClinicalWorks is piloting 2.0, which offers streamlined navigation on the iPhone, enhanced charge entry, lab ordering, enhanced administrative and favorite settings, creating appointments and faxing of progress notes.
eClinicalWorks P2P will be available in Q4 2009. It is included free as a module in eEHX 3.0 for community deployments. The solution is also available as a standalone product and will be offered free to clients until the end of 2010.
