Award-winning Medical Center Implementing eClinicalWorks EMR System and Electronic Health eXchange for Employed and Affiliated Providers
eClinicalWorks , a market leader in ambulatory clinical systems, announced that Salisbury, Maryland’s Peninsula Regional Medical Center has chosen eClinicalWorks electronic medical records ( EMR ) solution for the employed physicians of the Peninsula Regional Medical Group comprised of family medicine and specialty practices in Maryland, Delaware and Virginia, and will promote its adoption by affiliated community physicians within the region. The Medical Center also selected eClinicalWorks Electronic Health eXchange (eEHX) to serve as an integral component of an existing strategy to establish a health records system that allows for access across the practices and the acute care system.
“Due to the changing dynamics of healthcare, we looked for an EMR system that would support interoperability and the continuity of care between acute care and the ambulatory practices,” said Ray Adkins, Chief Information Officer of Peninsula Regional Medical Center. “ eClinicalWorks will provide our physicians with a comprehensive management and reporting system supporting pay-for-performance initiatives and the ability to more effectively manage the care provided to patient populations. The company and system have received great reviews from customers nationally and within our own community, as well as through independent evaluators.”
Peninsula Regional will utilize eClinicalWorks EMR to streamline clinical processes between employed practice locations and will work with affiliated physicians to adopt as their practice EMR. eEHX will serve as a hub in conjunction with the Medical Center’s existing information exchange providing physicians with improved access to patients’ health information and allowing them to exchange data more effectively.
“ eClinicalWorks has spent the past few years promoting interoperability between practices and systems,” said Girish Kumar Navani, CEO and co-founder of eClinicalWorks. “By selecting eClinicalWorks, Peninsula Regional Medical Center will be offering its providers a standards-based electronic medical records system with a proven track record in employed and affiliated practice settings that will aid in treatment outcomes and provide operational efficiencies.”
