Emdat Platform Delivers Significant Documentation Efficiencies

Large Midwest Orthopedic Group Realizes Increased Reliability and Streamlined Workflow 

MADISON, WI --(Marketwired - August 14, 2013) - Emdat, Inc announced today their robust clinical documentation technology yielded operational and administrative advantages for ORA Orthopedics, the Quad Cities' largest and most comprehensive orthopedic provider.

With 26 orthopedists in seven offices across Eastern Iowa and Western Illinois, ORA Orthopedics was drawn to Emdat's single platform that promised to improve workflow efficacy and reduce costs. The quick and painless implementation -- including interfaces with GE Centricity and MergeOrtho that automatically place authenticated data into the EHR -- took just three weeks, with a complete rollout to all clinicians in two months.

Physicians embraced the move to Emdat Mobile and enjoyed simplified access to patient demographics, previous notes and templates while creating dictations. Meanwhile, administrators left the time-consuming task of tracking documentation behind. With a click of a button, staff can easily search for files, access real-time information and confidently discover unresolved jobs. Most notable, ORA Orthopedics no longer suffers lost dictations.

Beyond these advantages, a library of customized templates not only allows clinicians to swiftly complete dictations, but also limits documentation fees. System-generated text combined with Emdat's sophisticated voice recognition processing brought substantial savings. Although too early to determine the full extent of this monetary payoff, the savings of time and energy are significant.

"The improvement in efficiencies is already a considerable value. When we can speak to concrete cost savings, it'll be the icing on the cake," says Joe Holmbo, Clinic Manager, ORA Orthopedics. "I've been very pleased with Emdat -- no major issues, excellent service. It's nice to see a system so fully deliver on its promise of functionality and reliability."
