Orthopedic Institute Selects the SRS EHR for Its 38 Specialty Providers

Physician Productivity, Specialty Focus, and Meaningful Use Were Critical Factors

MONTVALE, NJ – June 27, 2011 – SRS, the leading provider of productivity-enhancing EHR technology and services for high-performance specialty practices, today announced that Orthopedic Institute has selected the SRS Electronic Health Record (EHR) for its 38 specialty providers. Orthopedic Institute is located in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, and is the largest orthopaedic specialty group in their region of the United States.

“The unique design of the SRS EHR supports the workflow needs of orthopaedic specialists and successfully addresses the challenges that meaningful use poses for high-performance specialty practices,” says Judy Nelson, CEO, Orthopedic Institute. “With the SRS EHR’s productivity-focused approach to meaningful use, our physicians will efficiently capture the necessary clinical data to meet all of the requirements and take full advantage of the EHR incentives—while simultaneously enhancing patient service.”

“After seeing the SRS EHR running so effectively at a respected colleague’s practice, I’m fully convinced that it is the right EHR technology for Orthopedic Institute,” says Evan N. Hermanson, M.D., Orthopedic Institute. “SRS does not interfere with the important doctor-patient relationship like so many other EHRs do, and it enhances, rather than hinders, physician productivity—two things that are very important to our high-volume practice.”

“Orthopedic Institute performed its due diligence and saw first-hand how the SRS EHR delivers physician productivity in a practice very similar to theirs,” says Evan Steele, CEO of SRSsoft. “They, like all of our clients, are reaping the benefits of our data platform and our uncompromising focus on productivity.”
