Island Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine, P.C. De-Installs Document Management System in Favor of Productivity-Enhancing SRS Hybrid EMR

High-Volume Specialty Practice Values Productivity Benefits Over Potential Government Incentives

MONTVALE, NJ--(Marketwire - February 23, 2010) - SRS, the leader in high-performance hybrid EMRs, today announced that Island Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine, P.C., has selected the SRS hybrid EMR for their high-performance specialists. Island Othopaedics provides comprehensive orthopaedic care to the Long Island, New York, community.

"We didn't purchase the EMR module offered by our current practice management, and document management, vendor because we knew we would not use it. We don't have the time or desire to point-and-click our way through patient exams," says Douglas E. Barkin, M.D., Island Orthopaedics. "SRS offers us an alternative that allows us to organize our records electronically without impacting the speed at which we can see patients. Its emphasis on physician productivity is evident throughout all aspects of the software."

"We have an incredibly busy practice, and the production demands on our physicians are extreme. While we don't know what form it's going to take, we know that the future of all physicians involves seeing higher volumes of patients at lower reimbursement," says Greg Nizich Administrator, Island Orthopaedics. "I knew that we needed a system that helps physicians move through an exam more quickly, and it was immediately obvious that having physicians point, click, search, copy and paste would backfire. It was easy to see that the SRS system will allow all of our physicians, both junior and senior, to move through their exams in a manner that is familiar to them. I am confident that the economic benefits we will receive from this system will far exceed any government subsidies that may be forfeited in just a few years."

SRS was designed with direct input by its high-performance physicians to provide them with a system that fits their needs, helps them to work more efficiently, and enables them to achieve a rapid return on their investment. SRS, which has built the largest national network of high-performance practices that successfully use an EMR, attributes its unmatched adoption rate to ease of use, fast implementation, and an accelerated timeframe for training physicians and office staff.

"While other EMR vendors focus on meeting primary-care certification requirements, the SRS hybrid EMR -- a robust, dynamic product -- focuses on the needs of high-volume specialists," says Evan Steele, CEO of SRSsoft. "Island Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine recognized that SRS suited their clinical productivity needs best, and we're excited to have them join our growing national network of 5,000 providers."
