IMS, an ever-expanding gastroenterology practice, realized its current paper-based PM system was too expensive and lacked the necessary advanced functionality, resulting in a continued use of paper. IMS looked to switch and implement a comprehensive EHR solution that was affordable and would replace the need for transcription.

Additional objectives for the EMR/PM system were:

  • Reduce paper
  • Increase control over patient files
  • Improve patient tracking
  • Manage labs, prescriptions and notes more efficiently
