Pediatric Partners Selects Benchmark for Electronic Health Record SolutionDecember 28th, 2011
Pediatric Practice in Fairmont, WV is streamlining clinical documentation with leading edge technology
LYNCHBURG, VA — December 28, 2011 — Benchmark Systems, a leading Internet based provider of fully integrated medical practice solutions, announced today that Pediatric Partners will implement Benchmark’s enterprise solution to automate the clinical functions of the practice. The physicians and staff will now document patient encounters at the point of care and store patient and practice data electronically via HIPAA encrypted technology, eliminating most of its paper storage. Point and click screens, along with voice and handwriting recognition software compatibility, will make documentation simple and efficient.
An inter-office messaging system will organize all patient correspondence in one place and keep the entire practice up-to-date on important patient alerts. The practice will also connect to labs, pharmacies and referring doctors in real-time, accelerating patient care while streamlining information exchange. A patient portal will extend this same web-based convenience to patients, providing access to personal health information, lab results and prescription refill requests online.
“Our EHR, with pre-populated pediatric specific clinical content, will allow the physicians to proficiently document the health and developmental details of every patient visit,” stated Ernie Chastain, Vice President of Business Development at Benchmark Systems. “This specialty EHR solution will also eliminate the cumbersome task of sifting through unnecessary information found in some generic systems, saving the doctors time and money,” said Chastain.
