Michigan Eye Institute Selects the SRS EHR for Its 5 Offices and 8 Specialists

Expertise in Ophthalmology Was Critical Factor in EHR Selection

MONTVALE, NJ--(Marketwire - Jul 27, 2011) - SRS, the leading provider of productivity-enhancing EHR technology and services for high-performance specialty practices, today announced that the Michigan Eye Institute has selected the SRS Electronic Health Record (EHR) for its 8 specialty providers. Michigan Eye Institute is headquartered in Flint, Michigan, and has 4 additional satellite offices in the greater Flint area.

"Our ophthalmologists see 4,000 patients per month across 5 different office locations, and we sought an EHR that maintains -- or preferably, increases -- our patient volume," says Jeffrey Diskin, M.D., Michigan Eye Institute. "In contrast to other EHRs we looked at that would increase time in the lane, the design of the SRS EHR enables us to efficiently treat our patients, enhance our practice workflow, and deliver the highest level of customer service."

"The benefits of becoming paperless are just the beginning; we also value the robust and impressive data capture and reporting capabilities of the SRS EHR," says Brian Hayes, Administrator, Michigan Eye Institute. "Between the seamless ePrescribing process and the productivity-focused approach to meaningful use, Michigan Eye Institute now has an extremely valuable tool to use to efficiently take advantage of the government's EHR incentives -- in addition to improving practice operations."

"When evaluated against the EHR criteria recently released by the American Academy of Ophthalmology, SRS measures up very well -- a fact confirmed by Michigan Eye Institute's decision to join our network of high-performance physicians," says Evan Steele, CEO of SRSsoft. "SRS focuses on the needs of specialists, delivering a powerful data platform along with enhanced practice productivity."
