Orthopedic Center Launches eClinicalWorks EHR Implementation

The eClinicalWorks EHR implementation will replace several legacy systems in an effort to improve clinician workflow and efficacy.

Midwest Orthopaedic Center has announced that it will begin EHR implementation from health IT vendor eClinicalWorks which is expected to improve clinician workflow and efficacy.

The Illinois-based orthopedic clinic with 47 providers and physician assistants offering care to nearly 400 patients a day along needed a new EHR to support their needs, eClinicalWorks stated.

“We wanted the best cloud EHR solution and revenue cycle services to manage and streamline our day-to-day workflow,” Derek Armstrong, CEO of Midwest Orthopaedic Center, said in the press release. “Our goal was to remove multiple legacy software vendors and increase efficiency while reducing administrative burnout and costs for back-office staff. eClinicalWorks’ technology meets that need perfectly.”

Midwest Orthopaedic Center will implement the eClinicalWorks Revenue Cycle Management solution to increase their financial performance, maximize price transparency, improve the rate of collections, and streamline analytics through real-time dashboards.

The center will also tap eClinicalWorks Scribe to utilize its voice-recognition software, improving documentation accuracy and reducing physician burnout, the press release stated.

With the RPA tool, the center intends to improve efficiency and reduce human errors to keep up with industry standards despite staffing challenges.

RPA uses software bots to perform tasks, streamlining appointment booking, registration, referral management, payment posting, statement processing, and document routing,

In addition, providers at Midwest Orthopaedic center will gain access to PRISMA, a health information search engine that joins patient data from specialists, urgent care clinics, hospitals, primary care providers, payer’s insurance plans, and wearable devices.

Access to comprehensive, searchable patient histories is expected to enhance care coordination.

“We’re excited to partner with Midwest Orthopaedic Center to support their patient-centric and technology-forward operations,” said Girish Navani, CEO and co-founder of eClinicalWorks. “RPA and scribe tools will further help the center maximize resources and improve patient care and satisfaction while reducing physician burnout.”

In 2021, Somo Medical Center in Palm Beach County also tapped eClinicalWorks EHR.

The health IT vendor's HITRUST-certified cloud infrastructure will provide physicians with secure access to integrated patient health data and support continuous security and data privacy improvements without the challenges of data backup and server upgrades.

“With eClinicalWorks, our team of physicians and administrators are more efficient and effective, which has helped us continue to fulfill our mission of satisfying health necessities with an ethical, social, and environmental responsibility,” Andres Florez, vice president of Soma Medical Center, noted in a public statement.
