“With one of the nation’s largest health care systems, New York is leading the way for the adoption of electronic health records,” Assistant Commissioner Dr. Amanda Parsons, head of the Primary Care Information Project at the New York City Health Department. “We work closely with eClinicalWorks to deploy EHR technology to improve health outcomes across our health care system. eClinicalWorks has been a partner in this endeavor since 2007 and we have successfully helped more than 2,000 primary care physicians in small physician practices, community health centers, and hospitals adopt and use this EMR/PM system. We look forward to extending this relationship with our joint efforts through NYC REACH.”
