Philadelphia plans preventative-care EHR for Public Health
The City of Philadelphia has tapped eClinicalWorks to help improve the continuity of care for the city's Department of Public Health. The Westborough, Mass.-based company will outfit 230 providers across 20 primary care and correctional clinics with a preventative-care oriented EHR to improve the quality of care through reporting capabilities and the ability to share data between facilities. "As a provider of healthcare services, we must meet ARRA/HITECH federal requirements," said Donald Schwarz, MD, Philadelphia's deputy mayor and commissioner for public health. Schwarz adds that the software suite could help "establish an innovative electronic health record that will support the integration of health services provided by the Philadelphia Department of Public Health and the Philadelphia Prison System."
