AUSTIN, TX--(Marketwired - Sep 24, 2013) - eMDs, a leading provider of electronic health records (EHRs) and practice management (PM) solutions, announced today that South Jersey Family Medicine is the latest healthcare provider to switch to eMDs Solution Series™ Electronic Health Records, Practice Management and Patient Portal solutions. South Jersey Family Medicine, previously on the Alteer platform, is the latest in a series of providers to select eMDs as a replacement for their legacy system. South Jersey Family Medicine, whose focus is family practice, has four practitioners who conduct more than 20,000 patient visits a year. "After more than a dozen years on our previous system, we were looking for better customer support, speed, functionality, ease of use and reliability for our system," said Michael Rogers, MD, the owner of South Jersey Family Medicine for 23 years. "We wanted a solution that was affordable, yet ensured patient visits were completed in a timely manner. The fact that eMDs consistently ranked high for physician satisfaction in both KLAS and the Family Practice Management EHR User Satisfaction Surveys was also a deciding factor." eMDs was able to accelerate the implementation and adoption of eMDs Solution Series. The clinical staff and physicians at South Jersey Family Medicine underwent three days of training on the eMDs EHR solutions, followed by three days of eMDs PM training for the billing and reception staff. To support the clinic's go-live milestone, eMDs provided a trainer on site to ensure success. "All of the physicians in our practice had the opportunity to work with the eMDs' software prior to our final decision, and the staff was also able to get a good feel for the product beforehand as well," said Dr. Rogers. "The training and launch went so well that by the fourth day I was up to a full schedule of patients. I even finished all of my documentation by the end of the day despite having to enter data from the legacy system." eMDs' integrated EHR and practice management system is designed by physicians specifically to help providers in independent, group and specialty practices deliver robust capabilities for electronic health, practice management, patient engagement and claims management. As demonstrated by Dr. Rogers' experience, it is widely recognized as the most user-friendly EHR available. This is a critical factor in ensuring a quick ramp up to full productivity and minimizing the potential for the long-term revenue impacts less well-designed systems can have on a practice. "We are excited South Jersey Family Medicine selected the eMDs Solution Series for its EHR, Practice Management, and patient portal needs," said David Winn, MD, FAAFP, CEO and Chairman of the Board, eMDs. "South Jersey Family Medicine can now leverage the power of our integrated tools to transform clinical, financial and quality of life outcomes in today's quickly evolving and dynamic healthcare environment."
