Agreement Provides More Than 100 Providers in 31 Practices with Electronic Medical Records System
Westborough, Mass.—November 28, 2007— eClinicalWorksTM, a market leader in ambulatory clinical systems, today announced that Norman Physician Hospital Organization (NPHO) has purchased licenses of eClinicalWorks electronic medical record (EMR) software to streamline practice operations for more than 100 providers in 31 affiliated practices. E-prescribing along with an interface between eClinicalWorks and Meditech, Norman Regional Health System’s laboratory component, will further automate physicians in their efforts to foster better, more efficient care in both the inpatient and ambulatory settings.
“NPHO’s long-term goal is to create a community health record for its patients,” said Gary Clinton, executive director of Norman Physician Hospital Organization (NPHO). “Implementing a clinical integration system is a major step in achieving this goal. NPHO selected eClinicalWorks for its superior track record in customer satisfaction and its commitment to ensuring its solutions work well with our current systems, including interfacing with Meditech.”
“I am very excited about this development. It is a critical first step towards improving health care and innovation in Norman for the next decade,” said Stephen Connery, MD, NPHO president.
NPHO is implementing eClinicalWorks unified EMR/PM system to streamline the clinical processes between practice locations and promote patient safety while reducing costs. eClinicalWorks is working with the Norman Regional Health System to create an interface with Meditech to streamline the sending and receiving of lab work. NPHO is also utilizing e-prescribing, providing a direct link between the practice and the computer at the pharmacy (not the fax machine), establishing a two-way electronic connection. eClinicalWorks Electronic Health eXchange (eEHX) may be added at a later date to create a community health record.
“Customer satisfaction is one of the most important aspects of our business, as evidenced by the thousands of providers making our solutions an integral part of the care they provide,” said Girish Kumar Navani, president of eClinicalWorks. “Putting customers first has enabled us to create a comprehensive solution that helps improve communication throughout the extended practice and allow our customers, including NPHO, to better serve their patients.”
