CARROLLTON, Ga. Greenway Medical Technologies, a provider of electronic health records, ambulatory health care and clinical research business solutions and services, will supply its integrated EHR and interoperability solution to Take Care Health Employer Solutions, which builds and operates workplace-based health centers.
The deployment of Greenway's PrimeSuite will enhance the existing capabilities of Take Care Health Employer Solutions' primary and acute care health centers by streamlining access, maintenance and sharing of clinical and administrative information. This increased efficiency will enable increased interaction between providers and patients, leading to improvements in health outcomes and additional return on investment for employers.
Greenway's PrimeSuite enhances efficiency by utilizing a single-database architecture, providing true integration of clinical, financial and administrative data throughout the patient experience. Patient care plans are automatically merged with scheduling, coding and processing.
"Our goal at Take Care Health Systems is to continuously seek out and implement innovative services and solutions which will allow us to mitigate the trend of rising healthcare costs while improving access to high-quality care," said Peter Hotz, Walgreens divisional VP and president of Take Care Health Employer Solutions. "Partnering with Greenway to roll-out their PrimeSuite EHR provides a unified electronic platform to further allow Take Care Health clinicians at worksite health centers to serve patients with unprecedented levels of interaction, care and accuracy. In addition, we'll have the flexibility to meet the needs of our existing clients and continue to offer enhanced solutions and services as our business grows."
Implementation of PrimeSuite will occur at select new and existing Take Care Health Employer Solutions sites in 2010 and beyond.
According to research from Fuld & Com., implementation of worksite health centers has been shown to offer employers immediate savings of more than 10% of their total healthcare costs while driving improved behavior and patient outcomes in employee populations.
