Good Neighbor Community Health Center Selects Sage Intergy CHC to Streamline Practice Efficiency and Improve Patient Care

TAMPA, FL--(Marketwire - August 18, 2010) -  Sage North America Healthcare Division, which provides practice management software and services to approximately 80,000 physicians in North America, today announced that Good Neighbor Community Health Center, based in Columbus, Neb., has selected Sage Intergy CHC as its electronic health records system. Sage products are used by approximately 25 percent of all Community Health Centers throughout the U.S. to manage their practices.

Sage Intergy CHC is an integrated, scalable practice management and electronic health records system, specifically designed for community health centers. Patient data can be shared or isolated across practices and locations, allowing access from anywhere for clinical, financial and administrative management.

Sage Intergy easily tracks the details of a patient's clinical history, shares and manages clinical information and combines complex medical practice functions into easy-to-navigate menus and buttons, and fully integrates with EDI services to manage payments, Intergy Practice Portal to manage secure patient communications, Sage Intergy RIS to manage medical images and Sage Intergy Practice Analytics to report on practice efficiency and patient trends that can help to improve patient care.

"Good Neighbor Community Health Center is a data-driven clinic and we feel the analytic capabilities of the Sage Intergy system will allow us to best care for our patients while helping us track key health trends in the population we serve," said Becky Rayman, Executive Director of Good Neighbor Community Health Center.

Additionally, Rayman's experience with Sage's customer support won her over. "Sage continues to provide us with great responses, and great customer service. We're not a networked clinic, it's us here alone, and if it were not for Sage and their support, we might not be able to implement the EHR," Rayman added.

Good Neighbor Community Health Center is a multi-specialty clinic offering medical, pediatric, dental and mental health services, with seven physicians serving more than 8,000 patients annually. Sage Intergy CHC enables Good Neighbor Community Health Center to customize its system to adapt to existing workflows throughout the clinic and enables clinic staff to access the entire medical record online, in real time.

Currently, all patient records are paper based. Sage Intergy CHC will allow for a seamless transition to an electronic health record and propel the clinic closer to its goal of meeting the federally-backed meaningful use.

Sage has been providing ambulatory healthcare systems for almost 30 years, serving approximately 80,000 physicians in the United States with practice management, electronic health records, and other services to streamline patient care.
