WESTBROUGH, Mass.—October 29, 2013—eClinicalWorks®, a leader in ambulatory healthcare IT solutions, today announced that Chicago’s Rush Health, a clinically integrated network of physicians and hospitals, endorses eClinicalWorks comprehensive electronic health records (EHR) solution for its more than 300 affiliated private physician members. This agreement will bring Cloud-based technology to help make care delivery more convenient and efficient.
“Rush Health works as a team to improve health through high quality, efficient health services for patient care, including prevention and complex care management,” said Brent Estes, president and CEO, Rush Health. “After an in-depth evaluation, we determined eClinicalWorks would aid our providers in delivering these services due to care coordination functionality inherent in the solution and the benefits its current customers are receiving. Using eClinicalWorks will also aid our providers in meeting meaningful use and our Patient-Centered Medical Home goals.”
Utilizing eClinicalWorks EHR solution in a Cloud environment, Rush Health will streamline processes between practices and have more of a focus on delivering preventative care. The solution will also assist to improve continuity of care across multiple settings, allowing critical information to be accessible at the point of care. To aid its providers, Rush Health is helping subsidize the cost of the system.
“eClinicalWorks holds one of the largest independent practice market shares in Chicago and we expect it to grow with this relationship,” said Girish Navani, CEO and co-founder of eClinicalWorks. “Our traction is partly due to us working closely with our customers to help improve their clinical and fiscal performance. Additionally, our capabilities in managing the provider, population and patient will aid Rush Health in offering more collaborative care based on real-time information from multiple sources across its network.”
