Valley Oak Orthopaedics De-Installs CCHIT EMR and Replaces It With SRS Hybrid EMR

Usability and Performance Are Critical Factors in Prestigious Orthopaedic Practice Choosing Hybrid EMR

MONTVALE, NJ--(Marketwire - April 14, 2009) - SRS, the leader in hybrid EMR solutions, today announced that Valley Oak Orthopaedics has selected the SRS hybrid EMR for its prominent practice located in Davis, California. Valley Oak Orthopaedics has provided quality care in northern California for over 35 years.

"We chose the SRS hybrid after the existing traditional EMR in our practice drained our productivity and became unusable," says Valley Oak Orthopaedics' Administrator, Chris Taylor. "We are now confident that our high-volume practice will run more smoothly and without the difficulties associated with the point-and-click CCHIT-certified system that we are replacing."

"We are extremely pleased that the highly regarded Valley Oak Orthopaedics practice has decided to join the rapidly expanding national network of orthopaedic practices that have selected the SRS hybrid EMR," says Evan Steele, CEO of SRSsoft. "Our solution is uncomplicated and Valley Oak will reap the benefits of SRS immediately."

In contrast to traditional EMRs, SRS delivers a system based on listening to the voice of the physician. By giving the physicians what they want, SRS helps them work more efficiently and achieve a rapid return on 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 accelerated timeframe for training physicians and office staff.

"The positive feedback we received regarding the performance of the SRS hybrid EMR in busy orthopaedic practices across the nation assured me that we had selected the best solution," says Michael S. Petersen, M.D., Valley Oak Orthopaedics. "We are confident that our decision to replace a traditional EMR with SRS will take us along the right path by streamlining our workflow, delivering fast and reliable access to patient information, and increasing office efficiency."
