The West Michigan Physicians Network has selected Misys EMR for electronic medical records and Misys Tiger practice management systems as preferred healthcare IT tools to enhance patient care, safety and efficiency throughout the network of individual physician practices.
The West Michigan Physician Network (WMPN) has also selected web-based Misys Connect technology, to share patient information. The data-sharing capabilities of Misys Connect can improve productivity and patient safety by creating a more connected healthcare community that spans physician practices, hospitals and laboratories, homecare environments, and other venues of care.
Tom Janda, executive director of WMPN, said: WMPN leadership strongly believes in the long-term value of EMR in supporting the patient care goals of our physician practices and the community. Our job is to assist our members in making the best decisions regarding EMR, to negotiate attractive contract terms, and to assist where possible with implementation. We believe the Misys partnership supports all of these goals.
Mike Etue, senior vice president of sales for Misys Healthcare, said: In reaching this important decision point, the West Michigan Physicians Network has fulfilled a primary commitment to its physician members and also outlined a promising future for the patient population of the state. By encouraging the use of advanced healthcare IT and setting the foundation for a connected healthcare community, the organization is clearly focused on providing the best tools for its members and the best care possible for patients. We value the endorsement of WMPN and look forward to working together in making that promise and potential a reality.
