ChartLogic, a leading provider of EHR solutions to surgical specialists, announced today that Mission Surgical Clinic, Inc. has selected the ChartLogic EHR Suite. The clinic, specializing in general, vascular, and minimally invasive surgery, includes four surgeons and one physician’s assistant and maintains three offices in Riverside County California.
The clinic will adopt the ChartLogic EHR Suite including the ChartLogic EMR (electronic medical record), ChartLogic Document Management, ChartLogic ePrescribe, ChartLogic Patient Portal and ChartLogic Mobile Doc. With these tools, physicians in the medical group will be able to prescribe medications electronically, view images remotely with a PACS interface, improve coding accuracy with special surgical medicine templates and communicate with patients through a patient portal.
According to Eric Leavitt, referral coordinator and IT manager for Mission Surgical Clinic, a dozen other EMR systems were evaluated before selecting ChartLogic.
“The flexibility of ChartLogic’s user inputs was the deciding factor for us. The ability to choose between voice recognition, handwriting recognition, pre-labeled check boxes, or plain old-fashioned typing, and the ability to switch smoothly between any of them, makes it easy for our physicians to collect data. Using the Template Builder allows us to tailor our templates the way each physician prefers – with minimal assistance from IT technicians.”
In addition to Mission Surgical Clinic, ChartLogic’s EHR system has been chosen by two other medical groups in California, Coast Spine and Sports Medicine, based in Santa Ana, and the Rosen Anesthesia Group of Irvine.
ChartLogic’s EMR Suite has earned full (complete system) certification for meaningful use requirements under the standards of the Office of the National Coordinator (ONC). Healthcare providers using the EHR/EMR systems of certified vendors are qualified to receive federal stimulus monies upon demonstrating ‘meaningful use’ of the technology.
