The Orthopaedic Group, P.C., Selects the SRS EHR for Its 36 Providers and 10 Office Locations

Abandons Orthopaedic-Specific EHR for More Efficient, Usable EHR Solution

MONTVALE, NJ--(Marketwire - Dec 13, 2011) - SRS, the leader in productivity-enhancing EHR technology and services for high-performance physicians, today announced that The Orthopaedic Group has selected the SRS EHR for its 36 providers. The Orthopaedic Group is located in Mobile, Alabama, and has 10 office locations.

"Two years ago we implemented an orthopaedic-specific EHR. We had been promised that the point-and-click technology would enhance our efficiency, but it had the exact opposite effect on our physicians," says Stephen Cope, M.D., President, The Orthopaedic Group. "We needed a better, more usable solution for our providers, and the SRS EHR proved to be the ideal long-term EHR technology for our team. The focus on physician productivity that clearly underlies its design makes it far superior to what we were replacing in terms of overall efficiency -- and it offers us the best opportunity to meet the EHR incentive requirements without sacrificing that efficiency."

"We received uniformly positive feedback and recommendations to proceed with SRS from everyone we spoke to about their experience with the software and the company," says Patrick Page, CEO, The Orthopaedic Group. "We approached the due diligence process very seriously. One of our new physicians who had used SRS at another practice during his fellowship confirmed everything we heard from physicians, practice administrators, and CEOs -- this gave us the assurance we needed to know that we were making the right decision."

"Usability and practice-wide productivity are in the SRS DNA," says Evan Steele, CEO of SRSsoft. "The Orthopaedic Group has witnessed firsthand how important these elements are to high-volume physicians and has confirmed with other SRS clients how our technology has addressed these issues head-on. We're confident that the Orthopaedic Group will be as happy with their decision as our other clients are."
