Oconee Memorial Hospital is to implement e-prescribing and EHRs following a deal with Foothill’s Health Information Network.
Foothills, a supplier of medical IT technologies, has been employed to create a virtual network between community physicians, other local healthcare service providers and the hospital. The arrangement is designed to speed the adoption of electronic health records and e-prescribing across the community.
Dr Stanley Rampey, chairman of Foothills said, By providing physicians with access to a connected clinical solution, we are making it much easier for all our provider participants to adopt a system that eventually will be integrated with Oconee Memorial’s own HER.
He went on to say, The adoption of this technology will help us as physicians work more collaboratively to the ultimate benefit of our patients and our community.
