One more big move for eClinicalWorks in the expansion of EMR/EHRs, this time with correctional facilities. I believe that eClinicalWorks was a big pioneer in working with their software as it certainly seems to be very popular as an ambulatory medical records program, and they were the first EMR to connect with Personal Health Records too, Google Health and HealthVault. We also see a version at CVS Minute Clinics too. Again, their system appears to be the “most connected” medical records system on the market, and even available at Sam’s Club too. I believe there is also a Linux version so again, that would really stand to expand their horizons with interoperability in many scenarios. BD
The Relationship will Bring Together Award-winning Electronic Medical Records System and Health Services Provider to Improve Communication Among Providers and Patients within Correctional Facilities WESTBOROUGH, Mass.--(Business Wire)-- eClinicalWorks, a market leader in ambulatory clinical systems, today announced that the company has entered into an agreement with Correctional Medical Services, Inc. (CMS), a leading provider of health services for prisons and jails nationwide for over 30 years, to provide its electronic medical records (EMR) solution to correctional facilities affiliated with CMS. CMS facilities using the eClinicalWorks EMR will be able to streamline processes and promote patient care.
The system will also permit providers to utilize chronic and preventative care measures, including those that are unique to this setting such as suicide watch alerts and detox monitoring. eClinicalWorks will work with CMS to enhance its Electronic Medication Administration Record (EMAR) as well as intake process flows and a mental health module.
