It’s always nice to feature information relative to one of the advertisers on the Medical Quack and this is a substantial roll out to 150 physicians throughout the Arnot Health network in New York. E-MDs has been around a long time and was one of the first electronic medical records system on the market and has expanded and grown to keep up with today’s demands.
E-MDs was created by physicians and thus so understands what providers are looking for today and has a full advisory staff of physicians working side by side with programmers and the IT individuals to bring it all together. With integrating the EHR software with QuadraMed systems the combined solution will provide better communication, patient information throughout. I might also make note and suggest that if you are a specialty practice you could take a look and see what additional value has been added in those areas too, cardiology as one example as we all want the process to be as complete and “painless” as possible.

RESTON, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--QuadraMed® Corporation, a leading provider of healthcare technologies and services that help turn quality care into positive financial outcomes, announced today that Arnot Health in Elmira, N.Y., will provide e-MDs’ award-winning ambulatory electronic health record (EHR) to the 150 providers in its affiliated multi-specialty medical group, Arnot Medical Services. The outpatient EHR will integrate with Arnot Ogden Medical Center’s QuadraMed CPR (QCPR™) acute inpatient system, giving physicians quick access to patient information across multiple care settings. The integrated EHR solution will also help Arnot Ogden and Arnot Medical Services meet American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) “meaningful use” and interoperability certification criteria.
The 256-bed tertiary care facility, Arnot Ogden Medical Center and its affiliated medical services group chose e-MDs because of its rich functionality, usability and integration with QCPR, the inpatient EHR solution that Arnot Ogden has utilized for the past ten years.
“We wanted our physicians to have an outpatient EHR that would be interoperable with QuadraMed’s inpatient record technology,” commented Gregg Martin, CIO of Arnot Ogden Medical Center. “An integrated EHR will improve the collaboration between our physicians and staff, which we expect to enhance patient care and help improve our financial health. To reach our goal of delivering optimal care, we must share data seamlessly as patient’s transition from one clinical environment to another.”
