Customer Success Story: The Family Clinic
“We found that eClinicalWorks was our best option, both in what they could provide for us, as well as cost-wise, so we went ahead and switched, and it transformed the way we practice medicine compared to what we had before.”
Dr. Laura Braham, owner and clinical lead, The Family Clinic

The Family Clinic, Inc. needed a better Electronic Health Record to meet their growing needs. Once they made the switch to eClinicalWorks, they wanted to find a way to continue to strengthen their practice and to further engage their patients.
In 2018, The Family Clinic signed up for the Comprehensive Primary Care Plus (CPC+) payment model, expanding their access to patient data from a single hospital to several area hospitals.
The Family Clinic quickly noticed that joining the CPC+ payment model was helping them lower 30-day readmissions and cut the number of ER visits. One year later, the practice received the nation’s first CPC+ Practice of the Year Award.
