Arkansas Heart Hospital, nationally recognized specialists in cardiac care, found that their original healthcare IT choice, NextGen, had been little more than a vendor. The hospital needed a true partner, a company capable of helping them fulfill their mission of excellence through innovation, accountability through ownership, resilience without compromise, and teamwork with results.
With the implementation of eClinicalWorks, Arkansas Heart Hospital enjoyed on-site training, free data conversion, and an EHR with custom-made worksheets and features focused on the diagnosis and treatment of cardiovascular disease. Providers enjoyed a seamless transition to the new system and avoided the costs of hiring medical scribes.
Arkansas Heart Hospital’s physicians and clinicians now have the technology and analytics they need, including mobile and messaging tools, to provide top-quality cardiac care. Within two years of switching to eClinicalWorks, the practice had seen a 22% increase in patient volume.
