SRS Restores Balance Between Physicians and Vendor at Midwest Orthopaedics, P.A.

SRS No-Cost Pilot Program Drives EMR Adoption

MONTVALE, NJ--(Marketwire - September 10, 2009) - SRS, the leader in high-performance hybrid EMR solutions, today announced that Midwest Orthopaedics, P.A., has selected the hybrid EMR after participating in the SRS No-Cost Pilot Program. Midwest Orthopaedics is located in Shawnee Mission, Kansas, and provides exceptional patient care to the Greater Kansas City area.

"I've heard too many stories of expensive EMR implementations that have gone dreadfully wrong, and I refused to take a chance that my high-volume physicians would waste their hard-earned money on a poor EMR investment," says Barbara Sack, Executive Director of Midwest Orthopaedics. "The No-Cost Pilot Program was a unique and refreshing approach -- because we qualified for the program, SRS shouldered the entire cost. This showed a level of dedication to our success that we've never experienced before."

"The confidence SRS had that their hybrid EMR solution was the right choice for our practice was very reassuring and 100% justified," says Burrel C. Gaddy, Jr., M.D., Midwest Orthopaedics. "In hindsight, it's no surprise that SRS is an industry leader, given the quality of its product, its deep understanding of physicians' needs, and its dominant experience in orthopaedics. Only SRS is willing to put its money where its mouth is."

SRS was designed with direct input by its high-performance physicians to provide them with a system that fits their needs, helps them to work more efficiently, and enables them to achieve a rapid return on their investment. SRS, which has built the largest national network of high-performance practices that successfully use an EMR, attributes its unmatched adoption rate to ease of use, fast implementation, and an accelerated timeframe for training physicians and office staff.

"SRS takes the risk out of selecting an EMR and levels the playing field between physicians and the vendor," says Evan Steele, CEO of SRS. "We invested our implementation costs, time, and our hybrid EMR solution in Midwest Orthopaedics. The end result speaks for itself -- Midwest Orthopaedics is now an all-digital practice using an EMR solution that they know from hands-on experience will work for their physicians and their staff."
