Birmingham, Ala. (Vocus/PRWEB) February 22, 2011
SourceMedical, the premier provider of clinical and management ASC software solutions, today announced that The Reading Hospital SurgiCenter at Spring Ridge, LLC, based in Pennsylvania, has selected Vision and Vision Electronic Health Record (EHR).
A SourceMedical client for eight years, The Reading Hospital SurgiCenter at Spring Ridge is a for-profit facility that currently utilizes SourceMedical’s SurgiSource application. With eight operating rooms and a diverse multispecialty focus, the ASC views the implementation of an EHR system to be an important step to improving patient care and reducing costs.
“We needed an EHR system that could easily adapt to accommodate the day-to-day operations and requirements of our ASC environment,” said Pam Ertel, administrator for The Reading Hospital SurgiCenter at Spring Ridge. “The highly customizable system will eliminate paper charts, and improve access and tracking of patient information allowing nurses to better respond to our patients' needs. Vision also provides a considerable upgrade to inventory tracking and ultimately our ability to determine case costing.”
Vision EHR is the only single-platform electronic health record system that provides a consistent workflow within a facility’s core ASC application, maintaining a single repository for all administrative and clinical data to ensure consistency and thorough documentation. Customizable specialty-driven forms are easily converted to an electronic format, and changes can be readily made when necessary without interrupting current workflow, increasing staff efficiency and productivity.
“Quality care and efficient processes are vital to our clients' growth and success,” said Kevin McDonald, vice president of Account Management for the SourceMedical Surgery Division, “and Vision EHR can help them deliver both. Our Vision EHR Compliance Guarantee enables ASCs to move forward with an EHR deployment at a much quicker pace to improve patient care and ensures that their investment is protected in view of potentially changing government requirements.”
Compliance Guarantee and Flexible Financing
SourceMedical guarantees its Vision EHR solution will meet the forthcoming standards and requirements outlined by the Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology (ONCHIT) for use of an approved EHR in an ASC environment or customers will receive their money back. To further ease the financial burden for ASCs interested in deploying an EHR system, SourceMedical offers flexible financing options.
