Coastal Cardiovascular Consultants, PA, Rejects Hospital-Subsidized EHR in Favor of Specialty-Focused SRS EHR

Productivity Benefits and High Customer Ratings Led to Decision

MONTVALE, NJ – February 29, 2012 – SRS, the leader in productivity-enhancing EHR technology and services for high-performance physicians, today announced that Coastal Cardiovascular Consultants has selected the SRS EHR for its 6 providers. Coastal Cardiovascular Consultants has offices in both Brick and Wall, New Jersey.

“The physician-focused SRS EHR meets the needs of our cardiologists in a way that the hospital-based EHR could not,” says Susan K. White, Practice Administrator, Coastal Cardiovascular Consultants. “The substantial subsidy offered by our hospital to implement its EHR in our practice would not have compensated for the negative impact of the system on the workflow and productivity of our physicians. We were also concerned about the service and support implications of the hospital serving as an intermediary between the EHR vendor and our practice.”

“We had been reluctant to implement any EHR, given the frustrations experienced by some of our colleagues—but we were particularly concerned about EHRs that are primary care focused like those being offered by the hospital,” says Hojun Yoo, M.D., Coastal Cardiovascular Consultants. “Speaking to physicians and administrators from several cardiology practices, including those at the SRS User Summit, we were impressed by the reported level of efficiency generated by the SRS EHR and by its fit in high-volume specialty practices like ours.”

“At SRS, we work very hard to create technology that supports the unique workflows of high-performance physicians like those at Coastal Cardiovascular Consultants,” says Evan Steele, CEO of SRSsoft. “The result of our efforts is the SRS EHR’s unparalleled success in specialty practices and its extremely high ratings by clients.”
