Experience Generates Confidence in SRS Certified EHR

MONTVALE, NJ--(Marketwire - Sep 13, 2011) - SRS, the leader in productivity-enhancing EHR technology and services for high-performance physicians, today announced that Sandhills Pediatrics, a 14-provider practice in Columbia, South Carolina, received a total of $184,000 in EHR incentives offered under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA). Sandhills Pediatrics has been productively using the SRS EHR since 2010.

"SRS is the best decision we have made in the history of our practice," says Kevin O. Wessinger, M.D., president of Sandhills Pediatrics. "Even our initially most skeptical physicians became committed SRS EHR users in a very short period of time. All fourteen physicians and their staff value the efficiencies that SRS has delivered and the patient care and practice improvements that SRS has facilitated."

"The government's process for obtaining the incentives was somewhat cumbersome, but the guidance and support provided by the Government Affairs department at SRS helped us meet the requirements as expeditiously as possible," says Ken Fenchel, Practice Administrator, Sandhills Pediatrics. "Our physicians have been extremely happy with SRS and we appreciate the ongoing enhancements to the interoperability and data capabilities that SRS continues to offer us."

"Sandhills Pediatrics is among the rapidly growing number of SRS clients who are upgrading to or purchasing the government-certified SRS EHR," says Evan Steele, CEO, SRSsoft. "For SRS clients, the incentives are an extra bonus -- the primary value of the software is its impact on productivity and patient care."
