Ophthalmology EHR Testimonials
Here are just a few of the wonderful things ophthalmologists are saying about SRS EHR:
Byron Tabbut, M.D. Wheaton Eye Clinic, Wheaton, IL
"I am ‘Evangelistic’ about the SRS solution...your best advocate. My practice’s growth, with paper, was limited. With SRS, our growth was enabled. We added three new physicians last year and are projected to add two this year and no ancillary staff is needed to support them."
Mark Brown, M.D. Vision Partners, Mobile, AL
"When I walk into an exam room I feel confident that I have all of the patient's data available to me at the push of a button. I vividly remember the days when we had paper charts, and charts and/or notes were missing—and how embarrassing it was NOT to have a complete patient history/chart—especially when the treatment plan was missing. It’s a significant part of a patient's first impression. Having a complete chart when needed often adds to the confidence-factor a patient feels under my care."
John S. Jarstad, M.D., CEO Evergreen Eye Centers, Federal Way, WA
"We were apprehensive about switching over to an EHR because the systems we tried in the past slowed us down too much, decreased our productivity, and were not able to handle the data storage of all the electronic images we use in eye surgery. We found the solution to our needs in SRS. All pertinent clinical data is easily and clearly displayed on the customizable Clinical Summary and all digital images are seamlessly integrated into the SRS EHR and the patient’s digital record. Everything is managed in a unified system enhancing our effectiveness and the care our patients receive. This is what sold us on the SRS EHR. We have also successfully adopted the ePrescribing functionality and look forward to the higher Medicare reimbursement."
Jim Barad, M.D. Eye Associates of Colorado Springs, Colorado Springs, CO
"SRS delivered all the EHR functionality we need to consistently provide excellent patient care and service, yet the implementation was effortless. I didn't realize how productive the SRS EHR really is—I thought I'd have to reduce my volume on the day we went live, but I didn't."
Dean Carlson, M.D. Eye Associates of Colorado Springs, Colorado Springs, CO
"Our physicians experience a high-volume of patient visits on a daily basis, so it was imperative to find a robust EHR solution focused on physician productivity. The SRS EHR is easy to use and provides us the cutting edge tools that increase workflow efficiencies throughout our practice."
Mark A. Steele, M.D. Pediatric Ophthalmic Consultants, NYU Medical Center, New York, NY
"In addition to the cost savings, fast access to charts from the office or home has enabled us to provide top notch, immediate service to patients and referring physicians. With the SRS EHR, we are able to provide assistance without having to put patients and referring physicians on hold while the chart is retrieved."
Louis Furlan, M.D. Pediatric Ophthalmic Consultants, NYU Medical Center, New York, NY
"SRS has given me a true sense of control in my pediatric ophthalmology practice. I have all the information I need about any of my patients instantly."
J. Mark Engel, M.D. University Children's Eye Center, East Brunswick, NJ
"The accolades we received from high-profile SRS users nationwide were very influential in our decision to implement SRS EHR. I was extremely impressed with the flexibility and usability of the SRS solution—in today's market, an intuitive, user-friendly solution is not easy to come by."
Dan A. Nichols, M.D. St. Paul Eye Clinic, St. Paul, MN
"In order to modernize our high-volume practice, we needed a usable solution that would satisfy the demands of each individual physician. For example, the SRS Clinical Summary provides a time-saving, one-screen snapshot of a patient's complete medical history, and each physician can modify the Clinical Summary view to meet his or her own preference. This efficiency and flexibility made the SRS EHR the clear choice for our practice."
B. David Gorman, M.D. New York, NY
“SRS is worth its weight in gold…with no paper charts to move, we relocated our office with only a few hours of practice interruption…and converted former chart room to an optical…I never feel out of touch, even when I’m out of the country…when I’m finished seeing patients, my day ends—I don’t have to return to my desk to piles of paperwork…remote chart access saves me after-hours trips to my office or the emergency room…patients have increased confidence coming to a technologically up-to-date office...it was the easiest implementation of all of our technology.”
Jeffrey Liebmann, M.D. Glaucoma Associates, New York, NY
“SRS delivers as promised…it’s a physician-friendly software that doesn’t slow me down…the efficiency provided by the SRS EHR enables us to do research we could never have done before.”
Steven K. Mishkin, M.D. Millennium Eye Care, Freehold, NJ
"Our ambulatory surgery center can retrieve chart notes directly from the computer without the need for the physical chart. This has streamlined the process of surgery scheduling, eliminating delays and loss of information. Searching for lost charts is a thing of the past, with the recent visits’ notes easily retrievable from the computer.
The staff is very happy with SRS EHR. It is very user friendly. I feel sorry for the medical practices that aren't using SRS."
Marc Safran, M.D. Clay Eye Center, Liverpool, NY
"All told, the SRS EHR system has been easy to understand and use, both from my and my employees' perspective. We have never had any major technical difficulties and I feel that our backup system is now superior to those of traditional paper charting."
Eric Lichtenstein, M.D. Pediatric Ophthalmology, Fresh Meadows, NY
"I am an avid fan of SRS and am happy to be cited as a reference. Before starting my practice, I researched various digital records software packages and found nothing that compared favorably to SRS. The ease of customization and integration with Microsoft Word has allowed me to develop and refine my own chart notes and forms; my SRS EHR is truly my own personal version."
Lawrence Jacobson, M.D. Lawrence Jacobson, M.D., New York, NY
"SRS has truly changed the workflow of my office for the better–making it more efficient and less stressful for myself and my employees."
Jeffrey Edelstein, M.D. Jeffrey Paul Edelstein, M.D., Ltd., Chandler, AZ
"Since I switched to SRS, I have been thrilled with the ease of finding information quickly and being able to document recurring items immediately through custom templates. SRS has helped storing and retrieving patient pre- and post-op photos in a BIG way!"
Dennis Matzkin, M.D. Eye Sight Laser Center, Atlanta, GA
"Having been in a number of different practices over the years, chart issues have always been a nightmare. From tracking the chart, to organizing the chart, to multiple staff members needing the chart at the same time. Now, with the SRS EHR, I do not have charts or filing clerks, and I put the extra space I had anticipated using for a chart room to better use."
Michael Bartiss, M.D. Family Eye Care, Pinehurst, NC
"Each night, I backup my entire chart room to my laptop. If a patient calls in the evening or on a weekend, I have their chart in front of me in a few seconds."
Ben Cohen, M.D. Retina Associates, New York, NY
"I purchased the SRS software package because it was the only system that didn’t require me to alter the way I am accustomed to working in the office, and it gave me fast access to any of my patients’ charts from anywhere in my three offices."
Jay Bernstein, M.D. Pediatric Ophthalmology Associates, Cedar Knolls, NJ
"SRS makes my office more efficient and keeps my charts organized. I have three offices around the New York Metropolitan area, all are networked. All of my charts are available from any office at any time."
Rhodora Silang Office Manager
Pediatric Ophthalmic Consultants, New York, NY
“We have been successfully using the SRS EHR for 12 years and it’s impressive to see how much SRS has evolved. It remains the 'go-to' product for serving our needs as a modern medical practice. Even with the advanced functionality inherent in the product, SRS is still an easily customizable EHR that is quick and simple to learn. I have extensive experience training people on this system and it rarely takes more than half a day to learn the basics of SRS, and by the next day, the ins and outs of the software are mastered and easily put to use.
The Clinical Summary is uniquely customizable by each physician. Since our physicians are surgical specialists, both past surgeries and prescriptions are displayed on the Clinical Summary as soon as the patient is selected. The physicians save time by not having to rifle through the entire chart to get a complete picture of the patient’s history. Successfully ePrescribing with the SRS EHR has been a significant factor in eliminating workflow inefficiencies associated with prescription ordering and refills. Patients call our practice for refills and, with only the click of a button, the eRx is sent and a record is created within the SRS EHR. The need for further phone calls is eliminated and the entire process of ordering a refill is completed before hanging up from the phone call with the patient. Our busy New York City patients appreciate having to stop by the pharmacy only once on their way home and their complete prescription is ready, waiting for them to pick up.”
Donna Colantonio Office Manager
Eye Associates of Colorado Springs, Colorado Springs, CO
"SRS EHR has been wonderful in making us more organized and productive. Our office workflow is much more efficient and both the staff and doctors are happy. It is so convenient to sit at your desk and pull up the chart note when patients call. We speak to the patients immediately and don’t have to put them on hold in order to find a chart and dig through voluminous notes to find the information we need. We’re providing an enhanced level of care to all of our patients.
We have eliminated so many of our charts that we now have a four-person work area that previously housed the charts. It’s very exciting to have more room. And my favorite part: no more little sticky notes all over my desk reminding me to call patients. The messaging capabilities of SRS EHR have made communication and tasking so much easier and less stressful. I’m just thrilled with everything SRS has done for our practice. "
Teri Woodworth Practice Administrator
Peninsula Eye Physicians, San Mateo, CA
"SRS has revolutionized what we do. We are a huge proponent of SRS and would not trade it for anything."
