Side-By-Side Comparison of SRS to Legacy EHR Reveals Stark Differences for 17-Provider Michigan Orthopaedic Institute
Physicians Select SRS to Replace Their EHR and Reject Hospital-Subsidized EHR
MONTVALE, NJ – September 27, 2012 – SRS, the leader in productivity-enhancing EHR technology and services for high-performance physicians, today announced that Michigan Orthopaedic Institute (MOI) has selected the SRS EHR to replace its legacy EHR. The group’s 17 providers care for patients at two locations in Southfield and West Bloomfield, Michigan.
"We conducted a side-by-side comparison to compare the efficiency with which our clinicians are able to accomplish basic workflow tasks using the SRS EHR versus our former EHR—the difference, in terms of number of clicks and speed, was night and day," says David J. Collon, M.D., CEO of MOI. "We want to be positioned for the future and be able to meet all government and payer requirements—but we can’t be slowed down."
"Our local hospital offered to subsidize our purchase of its EHR, but we declined in favor of SRS," says Jeff Fischgrund, M.D., MOI. "The EHR used at the hospital was not specialty focused like the SRS EHR, and would have severely impacted our patient load and workflow. No subsidy would have offset the long-term costs associated with implementing the wrong EHR."
"As physicians face the implications of healthcare reform and the aging baby-boomer population, having ergonomic software that allows them to care for patients in an efficient manner has become more critical than ever," says Evan Steele, CEO of SRS. "As the EHR Incentive Program progresses, the number of practices de-installing their EHRs and choosing to implement the SRS EHR is growing dramatically. Specialty groups, in particular, are rejecting EHR grants from their hospitals because they recognize that these EHRs will never meet their specific workflow and productivity needs."
