Hayes Clinical Laboratory to Offer MedLink's iSuite EHR
NAPLES, FL--(Marketwire - February 18, 2011) - MedLink (OTCBB: MLKNA), a leading provider of clinical electronic health records (EHR) software and healthcare IT solutions, and Hayes Clinical Laboratory, southern Florida's largest privately held clinical laboratory, announced today that Hayes has partnered with MedLink to provide financial assistance to the Hayes network of physicians that implement MedLink's iSuite EHR v4.0, a CCHIT Certified® 2011 ambulatory EHR. This program will provide assistance to the Hayes community of physicians across southern Florida to achieve meaningful use compliance and qualify for federal incentive dollars of $44,000 to $63,750 per provider over the next five years. Hayes will subsidize the cost of MedLink's iSuite EHR up to 85% in its continuing effort to help physicians adopt a comprehensive clinical and financial EHR to advance the quality and efficiency of care.
MedLink's iSuite 4.0 EHR, a CCHIT 2011 Certified Ambulatory EHR and 2011/2012 ONC-ATCB certified EHR, qualifies its users for 'meaningful use,' allowing for the automation of everyday clinical functions such as prescriptions, documenting patient visits, lab ordering, creating notes and tasks, and much more to create immediate efficiencies in practice productivity. Deployed as a web-based Software-as-a-Service (SaaS), the iSuite EHR can be accessed securely from any PC or internet enabled device, significantly reducing the upfront hardware costs required for implementing traditional software based EHR systems and allowing for faster implementations.
"Hayes Lab has a long-standing reputation as a leader in leveraging technology to provide the highest quality of service to patients and providers alike. The subsidies provided by Hayes enable much more than just EHR adoption financial assistance, but will serve to improve the quality and efficiency in patient care through interoperability and improved access to information, benefiting all healthcare participants. In addition, MedLink's iSuite EHR technology can provide reduced operational costs for both the lab and the physician's practice with more efficient processes that create a competitive advantage for Hayes by increasing physician and patient satisfaction," stated Trent Hayes, Vice President at Hayes Laboratory.
