ChartLogic EHR Selected by Orthopaedic Associates of Central Maryland

Electronic Health Records (EHR), also commonly called Electronic Medical Records (EMR), is rapidly becoming commonplace among hospitals and private practices. Various companies have introduced Electronic Health Records software that provides several benefits, many of which center around the elimination of the paper chart.

Recently, Orthopaedic Associates of Central Maryland, with 12 physicians and three offices, has opted for the ChartLogic Electronic Health Record (EHR) Suite.

ChartLogic's EHR is fully certified and designed for specialty practice workflows, serving some 2,000 physicians nationwide. To date, more than 300 ChartLogic customers have received federal EHR meaningful use incentives. The company has announced that the medical group will deploy the SaaS-based ChartLogic 8 EHR on its own servers. While allowing access from remote locations via the web, this will give them full control over the data.

A practice can turn the physical space of a chart room into offices or additional rooms for exams, procedures, imaging equipment, and labs, as well other revenue-generating spaces by opting to use a digital chart over a physical chart.

According to Zubin Emsley, chief executive officer of ChartLogic, “A busy medical group like Orthopaedic Associates will benefit from the flexibility of ChartLogic 8. The system offers more orthopedic content than any other EHR including templates, macros, flow sheets and patient education materials. In addition, the EHR can adapt to different physician preferences for entering and retrieving clinical information. It enables physicians to input data via voice recognition, keyboard, point and click and touchscreen.”

Recently, the company announced that six orthopedic medical groups based in California, Texas, Louisiana and Arizona have selected ChartLogic EHR Suite for their practices.
