14-Provider Orthopaedic Associates of Augusta, P.A., Selects the Easy-to-Use SRS EHR Over Point-and-Click and Hospital-Based EHRs

Specialty-Specific Design and Unrivaled Success in Orthopaedics Solidified EHR Decision

MONTVALE, NJ--(Marketwired - Aug 15, 2013) - SRS, the leader in productivity-enhancing EHR technology and services for high-performance physicians, today announced that Orthopaedic Associates of Augusta (OAA) has selected the SRS EHR for its 14 providers and 2 locations. OAA, located in Augusta, Georgia, chose the SRS EHR after a comprehensive, 5-year search that rejected both the hospital's EHR and a popular ambulatory EHR.

"We evaluated our hospital's EHR system and a traditional point-and-click EHR that is used by a number of practices in our area," says Paul J. Herzwurm, M.D., OAA. "Our physicians unanimously concluded that these systems required too much work to document patient encounters and would not suit our specialty-specific workflows. These EHRs paled in comparison to SRS in their ability to meet the needs of our high-volume orthopaedists."

"We directed our attention toward SRS as we became more and more aware of its reputation for success in orthopaedic practices," states Cecilia M. Bowden, Practice Administrator at OAA. "We spoke with SRS clients by phone and on the American Academy of Orthopaedic Executives (AAOE) listserv; we visited two large orthopaedic groups using the SRS EHR; and we analyzed independent surveys done by orthopaedic executives. The evidence was overwhelming: SRS was the only EHR for our practice."

"It can be tempting to select an EHR that is offered by the hospital or popular among local physicians, but that doesn't mean that it will meet the specialty-specific needs of your physicians," says Evan Steele, CEO of SRS. "The SRS EHR supports high-volume specialists in ways that no other EHR does, as evidenced by the well-documented experiences of our orthopaedic practices."
