Smith Clinic, consisting of 63 physicians in two locations, and North Canton Medical Foundation, a group practice with five locations and 42 physicians, will benefit from instant connectivity between their multiple healthcare facilities and real-time, secure access to clinical data including patient information, lab results, prescription history, etc.
