Metcare Selects eClinicalWorks Electronic Medical Records Solution

EMR to equip Metcare physicians with paperless patient information

By CBR Staff Writer

Metropolitan Health Networks (Metcare) has selected eClinicalWorks unified electronic medical records (EMR) and practice management solution for its nine internal medicine offices in South and Central Florida. The EMR would equip Metcare physicians with paperless patient information that can be securely accessed anytime, anywhere.

William McCoy III, Associate Medical Director and Leader, EMR project, Metcare, said: “After a comprehensive ten-month review process conducted by a diverse committee of our healthcare professionals, eClinicalWorks’ EMR/PM solution emerged as the best and most cost-effective system for our practices. We expect full system implementation to take approximately 18 months.”

McCoy continued, “With EMR as a foundation, we foresee a day when a Metcare customer can be seen anywhere in the State of Florida where Metcare has an office and have instant and secure access to a complete medical record. We expect that making patient information immediately available to our physicians will improve the quality and safety of the healthcare we provide. In addition, it is anticipated that our clinical efficiency and cost effectiveness will be increased by eliminating redundant diagnostic procedures, such as imaging and blood work.”
