Jewett Orthopaedic Clinic, P.A., Selects SRS Hybrid EMR for Its 32 Providers After Thorough Due Diligence

Comprehensive Research Comparing Point-and-Click EMRs and SRS Hybrid EMR Helps Practice Avoid Costly Technology Mistake

MONTVALE, NJ--(Marketwire - October 1, 2009) - SRS, the leader in high-performance hybrid EMR solutions, today announced that Jewett Orthopaedic Clinic, P.A., has selected the SRS hybrid EMR for its seven-office, 32-provider practice. With over 125,000 patient visits per year, Jewett Orthopaedic Clinic is one of the most productive orthopaedic practices in the southeastern United States.

"In order to find the right solution for our clinic, we took our time and researched EMRs," says Charles May, CEO of Jewett Orthopaedic Clinic. "Jewett physicians, John W. McCutchen, M.D. and Adam S. Fenichel, M.D., invested numerous hours talking in depth to SRS users and to practices that implemented -- or tried unsuccessfully to implement -- point-and-click systems. The time our doctors spent was well worth the investment."

"Like so many other prominent medical practices, Jewett Orthopaedic Clinic recognizes the unique value of our high-performance hybrid EMR," says Evan Steele, CEO of SRS. "By taking their time and investigating the wide array of EMRs available, they determined that the hybrid EMR would best preserve productivity and enhance patient care in their very busy and fast-paced environment. We are thrilled to welcome Jewett Orthopaedic Clinic to our nationwide family of high-performance physicians."

SRS was designed with direct input by its 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.

"Satisfying the technology expectations of a large number of high-volume physicians was no simple task," says Charles May. "By performing thorough due diligence, we were able to comparatively analyze what the market had to offer and what suited our large, high-volume clinic best. In the end, the SRS hybrid EMR solution was our choice."
