Waco Orthopedic & Sports Medicine Clinic Enhances Productivity With SRS Hybrid EMR

Validates Choice of Productivity-Driven SRS Over Traditional EMRs

MONTVALE, NJ--(Marketwire - December 15, 2009) - SRS, the leader in high-performance hybrid EMRs, today announced that Waco Orthopedic & Sports Medicine Clinic has streamlined their clinical workflow with the SRS hybrid EMR. Waco Orthopedic & Sports Medicine Clinic has been providing quality orthopaedic care to central Texas for over 30 years.

"We needed a solution that would not slow down our high-volume specialists", says Mark K. Skains, Administrator, Waco Orthopedic & Sports Medicine Clinic. "After researching six systems, including five point-and-click EMRs, it was clear that the SRS hybrid EMR would provide us with everything we were looking for and allow us to run a much smoother and more efficient practice. Since we implemented SRS, the level of productivity has improved greatly throughout our office."

"The conversion to electronic medical records was painless, the immediate efficiency we experienced throughout our office was remarkable, and we have clearly improved our level of patient care and service," says Jacob R. Battle, M.D., Waco Orthopedic & Sports Medicine Clinic. "I have no regrets regarding our decision to go with SRS -- the only mistake we made was not making the change to SRS years ago."

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.

"The SRS hybrid EMR has efficiency and physician productivity at its core," says Evan Steele, CEO of SRSsoft. "The flexibility of our software allows high-volume physicians -- the type of physicians for whom traditional EMRs typically do not work -- to use an EMR successfully. We're confident that Waco Orthopedic & Sports Medicine Clinic will continue to experience success with our hybrid EMR and are excited to have them as part of our growing national network."
