Ohio Multi-Specialty Clinic Utilizing eClinicalWorks for Electronic Health Records and Population Health Management with more than 200 Providers
ORLANDO, Fla., eCLINICALWORKS NATIONAL USERS CONFERENCE—October 17, 2014—eClinicalWorks®, a leader in ambulatory healthcare IT solutions, today announced that The Toledo Clinic & Outpatient Surgery Center has selected eClinicalWorks comprehensive electronic health records (EHR) solution for its more than 200 providers in 62 locations, supporting nearly 40 specialties. The Toledo Clinic will also utilize the eClinicalWorks Care Coordination Medical Record® (CCMR) for population health management. This initiative will aid The Toledo Clinic in improving continuity of care across the organization, allowing critical information to be accessible at the point of care.
“As the largest independent physician group in Northwest Ohio, Toledo Clinic was an early adopter of electronic health records and practice management systems,” said Dr. Ian Elliot, president of The Toledo Clinic & Outpatient Surgery Center. “To continue moving forward, we began researching various IT platforms that could deliver a complete compliment of EHR, practice management and population heath. We selected eClinicalWorks due to the company’s leadership, dedication of its staff and the strength of the product at a competitive price.”
“During our selection process, we looked for leaders in the marketplace that could support large practices,” said Tom Sylak, Director of Information Technology for Toledo Clinic. “We also wanted a partner that was focused on its customers, as well as our patients. Early in our selection process we recognized that eClinicalWorks met these criteria. eClinicalWorks’ customers told us they were very happy with the service and support they receive. We saw technology that would impact our business as well as the care of our patients. Put all together, it made the decision to recommend eClinicalWorks very easy.”
Implementation of the eClinicalWorks technology will streamline processes between providers, leading to better care for the patients. The solution will also assist to improve continuity of care across multiple settings, allowing critical information to be accessible at the point of care. eClinicalWorks CCMR is designed to provide visibility into a patient’s care across all settings, facilitate smooth transitions of care, engage patients and providers in preventative care, improve outcomes among populations and reduce costs. A vendor-neutral, open network securely connects ambulatory EHRs with hospital in-patient systems and payer claim feeds, including CMS, to provide cost and utilization for services delivered to patients.
“It is Toledo Clinic’s mission to promote healthcare and provide integrated, high-quality primary and specialty care to the Toledo area,” said Girish Navani, CEO and co-founder of eClinicalWorks. “To support this, the clinic turned to eClinicalWorks for a comprehensive platform that includes capabilities to support the provider, patient and population across a variety of specialties. eClinicalWorks provides all of these aspects, delivering the tools for Toledo Clinic to enhance the delivery of care for their patients.”
