After selecting eClinicalWorks for their 600+ physicians and 190 locations, Advocare, LLC undertook a second, equally daunting challenge — a “Big Bang” implementation of the EHR in every one of their office locations on the same day.


Advocare, LLC established workstreams for training, IT, interfaces, communication, and contracting, and teamed with eClinicalWorks experts at every location — in Pennsylvania and New Jersey — for Go-Live on June 24, 2019.


Thanks to planning and buy-in from all staff, Advocare enjoyed a successful Go-Live. Within two months, staff in all areas — internal, family, and pediatric medicine, OB/GYN, and other medical specialties — were using the EHR proficiently.

About Advocare, LLC

As one of the nation’s largest, physician-owned multi-specialty medical groups, Advocare, LLC needed a best-in-class healthcare IT provider to help them provide comprehensive, integrated, and connected care among their nearly 200 provider locations. After an exhaustive, two-year search and review process, they selected eClinicalWorks.

The results have included better documentation, higher care quality, and the development of an ongoing relationship with their new healthcare IT provider, eClinicalWorks.
