The PHO continues to focus on educating and facilitating our members with Electronic Medical Records(EMR) adoption. The adoption of EMR's and other tools for managing healthcare information is no longer a "wait-and-see" budget issue, but a current "cost-of-doing business". We are the designated liaison for community based EMR interfaces to the CNE IT System. The PHO is also involved in the leadership of State-wide HIT initiatives including the RIQI HIT Physician Advisory Committee.
The PHO continues to be a leader in EMR, supporting Rhode Island physicians with EMR adoption, as a co-founder of Electronic Health Records of RI (EHRRI), which is a "value-add" reseller of the eClinicalWorks (eCW) EMR and Practice Management Software Solution.
Additionally, the PHO has a valuable discount arrangement with Ingenix/Caretracker to support physicians EMR adoption.
The PHO has the resources to help you & your practice prepare for the transition to EMR:
- Practice Assessment
- Project Planning Expertise
- Preferred EMR Vendor Relationships
