Dozen More Healthcare Facilities to Automate Using Sage Software

From On-Premises to Hosted Solutions, Practices Chose Solutions to Improve Efficiency, Achieve Meaningful Use Incentives and to Streamline Clinical Operations

TAMPA, FL--(Marketwire - Aug 29, 2011) - Sage announced today that another dozen healthcare facilities have chosen to implement the company's certified electronic health records (EHR) and practice management software to improve their clinical efficiency and improve the administrative management of their practices.

Facilities from California, Delaware, Florida, Illinois, Iowa, Kentucky, Nebraska, New York, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, South Dakota and Virginia elected one of Sage's software solutions including the Sage Intergy Meaningful Use Edition, Sage Intergy On-Demand, Sage Intergy CHC or Sage Intergy RIS because of the products' ability to enhance practice management and improve patient care.

For those seeking federal incentive payments through Meaningful Use, the Sage Intergy Meaningful Use Edition will help them report the required information and improve quality of patient care and chart documentation; improve coding; reduce patient wait times; as well as reduce and eliminate inaccessible results and charts for the clinic.

The Sage systems offer some of the most comprehensive analytics and reporting tools in the healthcare market, and allows for integration with the Sage Practice Portal, which provides secure Web access for physicians and their patients to communicate about the patients' healthcare.

The healthcare facilities selecting a product from the Sage portfolio include:

  • Family Health Center, Louisville, Kentucky
  • Des Moines Orthopedic Surgeons, Des Moines, Iowa
  • Fox Valley Orthopedics Associates, Geneva, Illinois
  • Mt. Vernon Neighborhood Health Center, Mount Vernon, New York

  • Blackstock & Kirk, Tulsa, Oklahoma
  • Virginia South Psychiatric and Family Services, Petersburg, Virginia
  • Delaware Neurosurgical Group, Newark, Delaware
  • Vujevich Dermatology Associates, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania
  • Midwest Pain Clinics, Omaha, Nebraska
  • Black Hills Obstetrics & Gynecology, Rapid City, South Dakota

Sage has one of the largest U.S. ambulatory physician practice footprints among software solution providers in the market, providing ambulatory clinical and financial solutions to healthcare systems for 30 years, serving more than 400,000 healthcare professionals including 80,000 physicians in the United States. Each year, Sage clinical physician partners accommodate more than 133 million patient visits in their practices.
