WESTBOROUGH, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--eClinicalWorks®, a leader in ambulatory healthcare IT solutions, announces today that the nation’s largest non-profit dialysis provider, Dialysis Clinic, Inc. (DCI), based in Nashville, Tennessee, has chosen eClinicalWorks comprehensive electronic health records (EHR) for nine physician practices. Use of the eClinicalWorks cloud-based technology will aid in analyzing clinician data and continuity of care efforts, allowing critical information to be accessible at the point of care.
“As the largest non-profit dialysis provider in the country, we constantly look for ways to improve care outcomes,” said Allen Vessels, director of physician services at DCI.
“We required a system that could collect quality data from the physician practices and make it easier to share health information across the entire continuum of care. We chose eClinicalWorks because of its reputation, value and the positive experiences some of our physicians have had with the technology. The foresight shown by the eClinicalWorks leaders in preparing for the future of healthcare makes us confident in our partnership.”
By implementing the cloud-based eClinicalWorks EHR solution, DCI will streamline processes between practices, allowing critical information to be accessible at the point of care as well as improve overall efficiency and communications.
Benefits of the technology will be extended through the use of eClinicalTouch, a fully-functional native iPad application. DCI will also use eClinicalWorks Scribe, which takes in unstructured input as text and voice and turns it into structured, reportable data within the progress note. Additionally, eClinicalWorks Patient Portal enables secure, two-way communication between DCI providers and its patients, encouraging preventative care and increased engagement.
“Dialysis Clinic, Inc., is a known leader in nephrology,” said Girish Navani, CEO and co-founder of eClinicalWorks. “By utilizing eClinicalWorks, DCI providers will have extensive functionality available anytime, anywhere along with strong patient engagement features.
The group will also gain a partner with the agility and technology to enhance the delivery of care. Tools including eClinicalTouch and Scribe will also be assets in saving practices time and effort in order to give their patients the care they deserve. We look forward to working with DCI to assist in helping it reach its quality of care goals.”
