Hielix, a leader in creating operationally sustainable, open solutions to seamlessly exchange health information, today announced it has entered into a marketing partnership with EMRapproved.com, to deliver its Hielix EHR Roadmap as part of EMRapproved.com’s three-step online electronic medical records (EMR) evaluation service. Through this partnership, physicians now have access to the most comprehensive tool available for researching and evaluating EMR/EHR solutions and helping to make sustainable technology choices that meet the unique needs of their individual practices.
A leading resource for physician practices, clinics and hospitals making the move to electronic medical records, EMRapproved.com is the most complete resource and directory available online specializing in EMR/EHR technology. The Hielix EHR Roadmap will be integrated into EMRapproved.com’s 3-Step Wizard – an online evaluation process that helps users navigate and target the expansive data to their specific inquiry needs. Upon completion of a straight-forward questionnaire about their practice, users are seamlessly connected to The Hielix EHR Roadmap for a “deeper dive” evaluation resulting in tailored recommendations for identifying an EMR/EHR vendor best-suited for their needs. Armed with this information, practices are well equipped to confidently engage EHR vendors on their own or through a third party or trusted partner.
“By using EMRApproved.com, physicians making the transition to EMR/EHR can be sure that they are selecting the right solution for their practice’s needs,” said Patti Dodgen, CEO of Hielix. “The combination of services available through EMRapproved.com, combined with the unique intelligence embedded within the Hielix EHR Roadmap creates a supportive resource for physicians unparalleled in the health IT consulting space and will ensure they are well informed about their options when making the transition to EMR/EHR.”
More efficient and relevant assessment accelerates adoption while saving practices thousands of dollars in professional service fees and helping avoid costly mistakes often associated with misinformed software choices, misuse and de-installation issues.
“I believe the partnership between Hielix and EMRapproved.com will be well received by ambulatory medical practices nationwide," said Wendy Whitmore, Managing Partner and CIO for EMRapproved.com Corp. "The Hielix EHR Roadmap greatly complements our wide range of online EMR resources and helps us address a key physician demand for efficient, consultant level EMR guidance at a very reasonable price. Combining the tools available within EMRapproved.com and the Hielix EHR Roadmap will offer a truly comprehensive path for physicians to investigate and select from the expansive group of certified EMR solutions on the market.”
With an understanding of the distinct characteristics of an individual physician practice and their impact on the choice of EHR, the Hielix EHR Roadmap application walks the user through a series of comprehensive questions to help provide an assessment of the practice across a broad range of considerations. From there, the product delivers the EHR Roadmap, a strategic report detailing the specific recommendations a practice will need to consider when going through the evaluation and selection process. All recommendations are tailored to the specific characteristics of each practice, including specialty, level of technology adoption, goals for adoption, practice volume, etc. In addition, the EHR Roadmap provides a breakdown of 2011 certified EHR/EMR products and the prominent features that map to the needs of the individual practice.
