Bergen Regional Medical Center to Use MedicsDocAssistant EHR

PARAMUS NJ--(Marketwire - Aug 31, 2011) - Bergen Regional Medical Center (BRMC) located in Paramus, NJ will implement the MedicsDocAssistant EHR from Advanced Data Systems (ADS). The system will manage the clinical and medical data of BRMC's patients.

BRMC's world class Evergreen Substance Abuse Treatment Center specializes in residential and intensive outpatient detoxification. Their Behavioral Health Services division provides equally world class services specializing in all areas of mental health. The MedicsDocAssistant EHR will be interfaced to BRMC's Paragon® (McKesson) system, creating a seamless bi-directional functionality between each.

Ronald Li, BRMC Vice President and CIO, said, "In moving toward EHR at BRMC, the two-part goal was to identify both a system that can handle, and a vendor who knows, the unique requirements of substance abuse and mental health. Having that system integrate into and support our medical clinics was the second part of the goal."

"We reviewed ADS and their MedicsDocAssistant EHR which had very good reviews from some notable colleagues in our industry who currently use the system," Mr. Li added. "Everyone on the BRMC selection team was very impressed with the ADS presentation and the MedicsDocAssistant system. It actually has the most behavioral medicine and mental health features among the systems we saw."

The MedicsDocAssistant EHR will be utilized in ASP / SaaS format for tracking BRMC's patients' medical and clinical data. The full spectrum of system features and capabilities will be used, including alerts, clinical analysis reports, E / M coding, automated superbills, labs, consult letters, referrals, and more.

David Barzillai, President of ADS, said, "Bergen Regional Medical Center's selection of ADS and our MedicsDocAssistant EHR is humbling. BRMC is without a doubt a world class behavioral healthcare facility. To say that we are honored in having been selected is an understatement. We look forward to working with the BRMC team of providers and administrators in bringing MedicsDocAssistant's robust, yet cost-effective functionalities to BRMC and BRMC's patients."
