48-Provider Commonwealth Orthopaedic Centers Chooses SRS EHR and PM Over Subsidized Hospital System

Usability and Impeccable Customer Service Sets SRS Apart for Physicians

MONTVALE, NJ--(Marketwire - Mar 14, 2013) - SRS, the leader in productivity-enhancing EHR technology and services for high-performance physicians, today announced that Commonwealth Orthopaedic Centers has selected the SRS EHR and PM for its 17 physicians, 10 physician extenders, and 2 physical therapy offices. Commonwealth Orthopaedic Centers, headquartered in Edgewood, Kentucky, chose the SRS EHR and PM for its ease of use and compatibility with the needs of their practice.

"We wanted an EHR solution that would meet the needs of all of our physicians, and SRS surpassed our expectations," says Matthew Grunkemeyer, M.D., Commonwealth Orthopaedic Centers. "With the SRS EHR, our physicians continue to practice as they did before, efficiently capture the data required for meaningful use, and easily maintain their high-volume patient schedules without having to click their way through patient encounters. SRS supports our workflows in ways that a hospital-focused EHR could not."

"Our interest in the SRS EHR was immediate once we saw the specialty-physician focused technology, and it was confirmed by visits to two SRS clients who were using the SRS EHR to increase their productivity. The fact that SRS is known for its industry-leading customer service and support further distinguished it from the hospital EHR we had considered," says JoAnn Reis, CEO, Commonwealth Orthopaedic Centers.

"While physicians are often tempted by financial incentives associated with purchasing their hospital's EHR, those EHRs simply do not work in ambulatory settings," says Evan Steele, CEO of SRS. "For over 15 years, SRS has pursued a singular focus on developing its EHR and associated technologies to enhance the productivity of specialists in private practice. We have built a national network of physicians by supporting our EHR with exceptional customer service."
