INDIANAPOLIS, Oct. 10, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- iSALUS Healthcare™, a privately held electronic medical and health records (EMR-EHR) provider, today announces Novia CareClinics has chosen OfficeEMR in its nationwide expansion effort to support Novia's mission to drive down employer benefit plan costs while providing improved benefits to employees and their families.
Novia CareClinics provides primary care services for large employers to promote the health and well-being of their employees by creating and managing employer sponsored on-site medical clinics. In doing so, large employers are able to combat the rising costs of medical benefits in today's healthcare market. In an effort to contain costs with their national growth trajectory, OfficeEMR provided a cost effective solution with clinical expertise and in-depth data analytics.
"After completing a laborious and thorough investigation, our management as well as our IT team members found the cloud-based OfficeEMR best able to meet our clinical and business needs," said Todd Foushee, executive vice president and chief operations officer of Novia CareClinics. "As an added benefit, we found the collective team at iSALUS to be engaging and willing to collaborate in order to meet and exceed our expectations."
Nationally, the trend by employers is to provide greater fiscal responsibility to employees and shareholders to contain the rising costs of health care benefits. Recognizing this trend, Novia CareClinics continues to forecast year-over-year growth, and required the mobility, scalability and cost effectiveness of a web-based EMR. As a fully-unified system in the cloud, OfficeEMR perfectly complements the existing on-site clinics as well as the forthcoming growth at Novia CareClinics as they continue to add additional providers and users. Additionally, the clinicians at Novia CareClinics called for a simple to use software that maintains the focus on providing greater patient care. The speed and simplicity of OfficeEMR provided the right solution in the mission of productive healthcare at Novia CareClinics.
"We are thrilled to be in partnership with Novia CareClinics to help deliver more cost effective care to large employers throughout the United States. Our vision with OfficeEMR continues to be centered on participating with such mission critical organizations to better manage clinical information in order to improve care and cost effective outcomes," said Michael H. Hall, president and chief executive officer at iSALUS.
The organizations have already begun initial training and implementation efforts, and expect the rollout to be completed over the next few months.
