North Bend Medical Centers Depends on PracticeOne and Oracle to Deliver Secure and Reliable Electronic Health Records and Practice Management

State-of-the-Art Application and Database Software Automates Oregon Multi-Specialty Clinic With Over 100,000 Patients

PISCATAWAY, NJ--(Marketwire - October 12, 2009) - North Bend Medical Centers of Coos Bay, Oregon, a 55-physician, 300+ employee, multi-specialty clinic and provider to over 60,000 patients, is an innovative user of healthcare information technology. The clinic is comprised of five locations across southern Oregon and represents 15 medical specialties and has partnered closely with PracticeOne and Oracle as key technology providers to support its doctors and clinics.

North Bend is a long time user of PracticeOne's Practice Management (PM) system and is now completing a clinic-wide implementation of PracticeOne's Electronic Health Records (EHR) system. To date, approximately half of the 300 employees and 55 physicians are actively using the EHR, with plans for a complete roll out throughout the entire operation by mid-year, 2010. PracticeOne is a leading developer of healthcare information technology and supports hundreds of practices in a variety of specialties nationwide.

PracticeOne develops and supports an entire suite of applications including its EHR, which is 2008 CCHIT Certified® for Ambulatory Care with additional certifications for Cardiovascular Medicine and Child Care, its award winning PM, a secure patient portal, and SureScripts Certified Electronic Prescribing. PracticeOne offers a full range of technical services including customization, implementation, training, technical support and revenue cycle management.

The PracticeOne EHR and PM applications run on top of the Oracle database, widely acknowledged for its reliability, security and performance. PracticeOne chose Oracle for just those reasons, and relies on Oracle to ensure that its applications are always up and running and virtually trouble free.

Oracle is one of the world's largest software providers and is perhaps the leading provider of database software. Its database has long been a mainstay of corporations large and small and is now making inroads into the healthcare environment.

Bob Schmidt, Director of IT for North Bend, likes the reliability of the Oracle database running on Linux, as well as the tight integration with PracticeOne, "PracticeOne combined with Oracle is practically bullet proof and it just works. With the dramatic weather we get on the coast, and 300 employees pounding on the system daily across 5 offices, we know we can rely on PracticeOne every day. As the IT Manager at North Bend, I value the security and reporting that I get with PracticeOne and Oracle combined. Looking forward to the stimulus, I know that we will definitely be able to show 'meaningful use' with e-Medsys EHR by PracticeOne running on Oracle."

"North Bend Medical Centers is a great example of how the best EHR software is made even better by a robust database -- it is the best of both worlds, superior application software supported by a superior infrastructure platform," said Hank Cohn, CEO of PracticeOne. "We look forward to continuing to work with Oracle to deliver the most reliable healthcare applications on the market to practices like North Bend."
