Orthopaedic Center of Southern Illinois Selects the SRS Certified EHR for Its 9 Providers

Orthopaedists Confident in Productivity-Focused Approach to Meaningful Use

MONTVALE, NJ--(Marketwire - Dec 19, 2011) - SRS, the leader in productivity-enhancing EHR technology and services for high-performance physicians, today announced that the Orthopaedic Center of Southern Illinois (OCSI) has selected the SRS certified EHR for its 9 providers. Since 1974, the Orthopaedic Center of Southern Illinois has been providing quality orthopaedic care to residents of southern Illinois and the Midwest.

"SRS is a first-class company from top to bottom -- we've been extremely happy with not only the quality of the SRS product, but also the company's responsiveness in terms of the level of service and support provided," says Don A. Kovalsky, M.D., OCSI. "We also value the efficiencies and productivity enhancements that the SRS EHR has delivered, and we're confident that the SRS approach to meaningful use will enable us to earn the EHR incentives without disrupting our workflow."

"SRS has developed the tools necessary to streamline meaningful use for our providers," says Aaron M. Asbury, Director of Operations, OCSI. "We anticipate meeting the requirements with the SRS EHR while continuing to provide the high level of patient care for which our practice is known."

"The meaningful use requirements were difficult to digest at first, but SRS is going above and beyond in providing education and overall assistance," says Tori Kreher, Compliance Officer & Auditor, OCSI. "I attended the annual SRS User Summit to see the meaningful use upgrade first-hand and have participated in the meaningful use webinars hosted by SRS -- both were incredibly informative. With the resources of the knowledgeable SRS Government Affairs department at our disposal and an EHR that our providers embrace, I have no doubt that our providers will successfully meet the requirements of the EHR incentive program."

"At SRS, we pride ourselves on hiring professional, eager-to-please employees, and that resonates with our clients," says Evan Steele, CEO of SRSsoft. "We also invest significant resources into the continuous development of efficient, productivity-enhancing products that do not slow physicians down and that position them for long-term success. We look forward to providing OCSI with our technology and services well into the future."
