NEW YORK, NY — CHARTCARE, Inc. of New York announces that it has been selected by the Barrie and Community Family Health Team in Barrie, Ontario, Canada to implement their OntarioMD approved Clinical Management Solution (CMS).
CHARTCARE will implement its Electronic Medical Records (EMR) and Practice Management Applications (PMA) solution to 60 physicians and numerous additional healthcare providers at 35 different locations within the Barrie area starting next month.
Each practice will maintain their individual billing environments but share all other common elements such as patient scheduling, patient recalls, Electronic Medical Records, lab and medication data. Almost 350 workstations will connect securely through the province’s Smart Systems for Health Agency (SSHA).
“We are a diverse group of family physicians who were in agreement about networking and combining our patients into one server/database for EMR”, said Dr. Anne DuVall, lead physician for Barrie and Community FHT. “We have followed a long and diligent selection process. In addition to CHARTCARE’s ability to accommodate the many styles of physician workflow within our team, it was important for us to choose a vendor that we felt confident could institute a project of this magnitude”.
“This is a proven deployment of a single patient record across many locations, with a powerful security model”, stated Dennis Niebergal, president & CEO of CHARTCARE. “As with previous negotiations in Ontario, we have appreciated the involvement of Barrie’s OntarioMD advisors as a project management resource. Their expert advice helped eliminate confusion and reduced deficiencies ensuring a more successful implementation and better end result”.
CHARTCARE’s advantage is that our Trusted, Proven and Reliable solution supports physicians’ workflow and can be tailored to meet individual physician needs. It helps enhance patient care, improves patient safety and drives both physician and staff productivity.
