Failed by Prior EHR Vendor, Pittsburgh Bone & Joint Surgeons Moves to SRS EHR/PM

Orthopaedists Derive More Value From SRS' Specialty-Focused EHR Than Primary Care EHR

MONTVALE, NJ--(Marketwire - Jun 21, 2012) - SRS, the leader in productivity-enhancing EHR technology and services for high-performance physicians, today announced that Pittsburgh Bone & Joint Surgeons, P.C. (PBJS), has selected the SRS EHR and PM to replace the system it originally purchased for its 7 physicians. PBJS provides high-quality orthopaedic care to the Greater Pittsburgh area of Pennsylvania.

"We abandoned the first EHR because the vendor promised us orthopaedic-specific features that never came to fruition," says Eric C. Chamberlain, M.D., President, PBJS. "We realized that our physicians would derive far more benefits from an EHR that already had a proven appreciation of the specific workflow needs of our specialty. SRS delivers that expertise and experience better than any other vendor we've seen, as evidenced by its large orthopaedic client base."

"Several things came into play when we decided to abort our first EHR implementation and move to SRS," says Lora Ward Wilson, Executive Director, PBJS. "SRS didn't require that we close our practice for a week or cut back on our patient schedules during implementation, like other EHR vendors did. Also, the SRS approach to meaningful use provides further evidence that SRS understands orthopaedics and the value of our physicians' time."

"Orthopaedic groups like Pittsburgh Bone & Joint Surgeons -- and other specialty groups -- are trading in their legacy EHRs for the SRS EHR because they recognize that SRS addresses their unique needs as high-performance physicians," says Evan Steele, CEO of SRS. "Making the switch to SRS enables them to enhance their practice productivity while also enhancing their data and interoperability capabilities."
