Manistee Area Community Clinic and PracticeOne: Excellence in Community Health / Excellence in Automation Solutions

PISCATAWAY NJ--(Marketwire - June 23, 2009) - Manistee Area Community Clinic (MACC) in Manistee, MI, provides quality health care to underserved, uninsured in our community. Clients that qualify for MACC receive comprehensive health care at no charge. MACC relies on grant funding, donations, collaboration from agencies for pro bono services and in kind contributions to provide such services. MACC's staff consists of 75 volunteer doctors, nurse practitioners, Physicians Assistants, nurses and intake/registration personnel.

When MACC needed to obtain automated help to manage both the business and clinical sides of their operation, several possible solutions were reviewed and MACC selected PracticeOne and the e-Medsys Solutions Suite.

Penny Dougherty, MACC's President and CEO, could not be more pleased by the selection. "PracticeOne spent a great deal of time with us, even knowing that our budget was very limited. Other vendors were not as patient or concerned. PracticeOne really has a deep feeling for the work done by MACC and the patients we serve. PracticeOne is concerned with the needs of Michigan communities and wants to help agencies like ours facilitate those needs. They worked with us to determine the best options and we could not be more pleased by the outcome."

MACC uses the completely integrated e-Medsys Solutions Suite, consisting of the 2008 CCHIT Certified® e-Medsys EHR, the e-Medsys PM and the e-Medsys Patient Access Portal. They opted for the system's ASP format which can also be provided as Client Server.

"The level of automation brought to MACC by these three solutions is absolutely astounding. Our patients' demographics information is being effortlessly recorded and tracked. This is amazing considering many of our volunteers are not 'computer literate' but learned with ease in one session. I am excited about our EHR, scheduling and how easy it will be to manage reports. One of the best features will enable patients to do so much of their own work by using the internet-secure Portal," noted Ms. Dougherty. She added, "We are so very grateful to PracticeOne for getting MACC configured with excellent software, and for working with us on our special needs."

Hank Cohn, President of PracticeOne, said, "Having Manistee Area Community Clinic as a member of the PracticeOne family is something about which we are extremely proud. Being able to help bring the highest levels of automation solutions to organizations such as MACC so that maximum time can be spent on patient care, is without a doubt the best part of our jobs here at PracticeOne."
