Builds on a Long-Term, Productivity-Enhancing Partnership with SRS

MONTVALE, NJ – March 5, 2012 –SRS, the leader in productivity-enhancing EHR technology and services for high-performance physicians, today announced that Pediatric Associates of Savannah, PC has selected the SRS Patient Portal for its 10 providers and 3 office locations. Pediatric Associates of Savannah provides comprehensive pediatric care to Savannah, Georgia and the surrounding areas, and has been successfully using the SRS EHR since 2004.

“The SRS Patient Portal was an exciting extension of our relationship with SRS that continues to enhance the productivity of our practice,” says Ben Spitalnick, M.D., MBA, Pediatric Associates of Savannah. “After implementation, we noticed an immediate shift from the phones to the patient portal—patients began submitting prescription refill requests, paying their balances, and scheduling appointments in an incredibly efficient way. The portal is already having an impact on the level of care and service that we are able to provide our patients.”

“Doing things online is becoming a way of life, and our patients are thrilled with this capability,” says Libby Staggs, Office Manager, Pediatric Associates of Savannah. “Once we launched the SRS Patient Portal, the constant strain on the phone lines and the stress on our staff subsided, freeing us to attend to the patients who needed to speak with someone about urgent medical needs. Just like online banking, our patients like the convenience of signing-in to the SRS Patient Portal and paying their bills without needing to call us or sending a check—and we anticipate a shorter revenue cycle.”
