New York City Department Of Health And Mental Hygiene Selects eClinicalWorks Unified EMR/PM Solution

This a good move for NYC. As a provider of health care to the poor, NYC and other cities are seeing the value of bringing Electronic Health Records to physicians. Patients will benefit through the efficiences that only EHRs can provide. The City will benefit by having a healthier populace at a lower long term budget. Physicians will of course be able to apply the EHR benefits to their Commercial and Medicare patients as well especially with the features incorporated in the TCNY (Take Care NY upgrade)! SV

WESTBOROUGH, Mass. - April 16, 2007 - eClinicalWorks, a market leader in unified EMR/PM systems, today announced that the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene has chosen eClinicalWorks unified electronic medical records (EMR) and practice management (PM) in a $19.8 million deal as part of its Primary Care Information Project (PCIP) initiative. Initially, 1300 physicians serving the City's neediest communities are implementing eClinicalWorks EMR/PM, with the potential of expanding to additional providers. Participating physicians will also have access to eClinicalWorks Patient Portal to engage City physicians and their patients in more effective medical management.
