Annapolis Pediatrics Selects Sage Intergy Suite to Enhance Patient Care Across Clinics, Streamline Workflow

TAMPA, FL--(Marketwire - March 9, 2010) - Sage North America today announced that Annapolis Pediatrics, a leading healthcare provider to infants, children, adolescents and young adults in Annapolis, MD and surrounding communities, has selected Sage to implement the Sage Intergy Suite of financial and clinical products across its four clinics. Sage has been providing ambulatory healthcare systems for almost 30 years, serving more than 80,000 physicians in the United States with practice management, electronic health records, and other services to streamline patient care.

Annapolis Pediatrics, which served over 70,000 patients last year, sought a new practice management and EHR solution that would provide instant access to patient clinical information and greater flexibility in scheduling across locations, along with more advanced reporting capability. After an extensive review process, Annapolis Pediatrics selected the Sage Intergy Suite for its ability to streamline processes and ultimately increase quality of patient care.

According to Annapolis Pediatrics, Sage was chosen over three other vendors because of Intergy's sophisticated yet easy-to-use features that allow users to navigate easily through complex practice workflows. Sage Intergy's integrated practice management and EHR solution easily connects with existing systems, improves clinical documentation with easy template customization, and offers financial benefits through billing error reduction.

"With our previous solution, it was extremely difficult to locate and access patient records across offices or out in the field," said Lisa Wannemacher, practice administrator for Annapolis Pediatrics. "The Intergy Suite provides the advanced capabilities we need in an easy-to-use interface that simplifies processes and reduces employee training time, which allows us to focus on patient care."

For Annapolis Pediatrics, with 70 employees and 21 practitioners, Sage Intergy will also increase efficiency in connecting with patients and pharmacies. With the solution, practitioners are able to quickly share information with patients through an online portal as well as send prescriptions to pharmacies electronically, thereby saving time and enhancing the patient experience.

"We have been incredibly impressed with the Sage team throughout the entire research process," said Wannemacher. "They have gone above and beyond to provide the in-depth knowledge and support we needed to make this decision. We're excited to continue to partner with Sage to increase efficiency and elevate the patient experience at Annapolis Pediatrics."
