iSALUS Healthcare recognizing benefits from St. Vincent Health collaboration

Independent physicians leverage partnership to adopt affordable web-based Electronic Medical Record (EMR) solution

INDIANAPOLIS, Nov. 7, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- iSALUS Healthcare, a privately held electronic medical records service provider, today announced over the last several weeks, the company has seen an increased demand for its OfficeEMR™ service offering by Indiana's physicians stemming from the company's endorsement from St. Vincent Health in a mid-September announcement.

The collaboration between the two organizations is centered on providing OfficeEMR, a fully-integrated EMR and Practice Management solution for independent physicians across Indiana, with affordable pricing that includes robust training, implementation and a customer support program.  This joint effort has fostered new partnerships and additional opportunities for iSALUS, as the company works to provide a customized EMR that complements a physician's distinct workflow, medical specialty and overall healthcare service offerings.  First to onboard with iSALUS since the collaboration is Dr. Alan L. Schwartz, a board certified Pediatrician who has been practicing medicine in Indiana for almost 20 years.

"After learning about the partnership, I saw an opportunity to benefit my practice and the patients we serve.  OfficeEMR is simple to use and granted my practice many advantages with its web-based design and pricing model.  While my practice has been utilizing an electronic scheduling program, we had yet to convert to a unified EMR system.  The announcement by St. Vincent Health and iSALUS offered a credible cloud-based system and a total solution for my practice.  I look forward to completing the implementation process and fully converting to OfficeEMR in the near future," said Dr. Schwartz.

Converting medical and health records to an electronic format has multiple benefits for providers ranging from improving patient care to timely access of medical information.  Because it resides in the cloud, demonstrations and training of OfficeEMR can be done quickly via the internet, minimizing interruptions to practices.  In the same fashion, OfficeEMR can be implemented in 60 days or less, allowing practices to quickly see the benefits in their decision to adopt or convert to electronic medical records.

"Our company has seen terrific momentum since the St. Vincent Health announcement.  As an Indiana-based company, we are thrilled to play a role in improving the delivery of healthcare services within our community through electronic medical records," said Michael Hall, CEO and founder of iSALUS Healthcare.  "This growth will lead to better population health and certainly job growth within our community," Hall concluded.
