Austin-based electronic health record vendor doubles growth rate in 2010.
AUSTIN, TX – eMDs, a leading provider of electronic health records (EHRs), is proud to announce another year of record revenue and employee growth. In 2010 eMDs doubled their growth rate from the previous two years. Total employee count grew from 209 to 275 through the course of 2010, a 31% increase, expanding nearly every department with both entry level and senior positions. The company anticipates significant growth will continue through 2011 in the areas of provider training, implementation, customer support, meaningful use assistance, health information exchanges, special projects (e.g., the Patient Centered Medical Home), practice optimization, patient safety initiatives, research, design, development, quality assurance, content development, and education.
eMDs began an escalation in hiring in early 2009, and continued to see significant growth throughout 2010. In order to maintain the highest level of customer satisfaction during this period of expansion, eMDs continues to focus on its commitment to hiring and training a staff that will be an asset to customers. A US-based support team is always available to eMDs customers and is one of the many reasons why the company continues to garner numerous top rankings in independent surveys, including receiving two 2010 Best in KLAS awards for Ambulatory EHR (2-5 physician) and Practice Management (2-5 physician).
"A large portion of our customer growth can be attributed to eMDs being selected by the majority of regional extension centers that have created some form of vendor short list," said Patrick Hall, Executive Vice President of Business Development at eMDs. " We are one of the top selected vendors which, given the rigorous nature of the selection processes that evaluate customer satisfaction, product capabilities, corporate financial stability, and numerous other factors, is a reflection of our leadership position in the industry," concluded Hall.
"eMDs' remarkable growth in 2010 is a testament of our commitment to providing our customers with the knowledge and support they need to achieve the highest level of care possible," said Dr. Michael Stearns, President and CEO of eMDs. "We are thankful to our loyal and growing customer base for allowing us to make their practices more efficient and secure."
