Electronic Health Records (EHR)
Healthcare providers across the country are transitioning to an electronic health record (EHR) system as part of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) requirements.
EHRs are the next step in the continued progress and delivery of healthcare that can strengthen the relationship between clinicians and patients. Our Electronic Health Record (EHR) secure repository system has been tested and selected for Long-Term Care professionals to enhance access and documentation of critical information while improving quality, enhancing regulatory compliance, efficiency, timeliness, and ensure the communities we serve receive the best possible integrated care.
