“With information technology, a solo practitioner can now be part of a virtual health care system.” — Dr. Salvatore Volpe, MD, solo provider
Salvatore Volpe, MD PC, a solo practice on Staten Island, New York, understood its paper-based system no longer promoted its mission of serving patients in the context of family and community. As a result, the practice needed to implement an EHR system to improve efficiencies and enhance patient care.
eClinicalWorks’ comprehensive EHR solution met the needs of Dr. Salvatore Volpe’s practice by improving efficiency and quality of care throughout the practice to expand upon the practice’s mission.
After installing eClinicalWorks, Dr. Salvatore Volpe’s practice now provides more accurate prescriptions, a higher level of patient safety, and lower healthcare costs. The practice has also experienced substantial ROI and has saved $30,000 of recurring expenses within the first year of implementation. The EHR also helped Dr. Volpe become the first solo practice in New York State to receive Level 3 PCMH recognition, based on the 2008 criteria, and the first solo practice in the United States to receive PCMH 2011 Level 3 status.
