PHOENIX, Nov. 30, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- CompuGroup Medical, one of the leading eHealth companies in the world, announced today the availability of its web-based electronic health record solution — CGM webEHR that now includes a module for rehabilitation care focused on physical, occupational and speech therapy. CGM announced last year the availability of this product line extension being the result of a partnership with The Weston Group, Inc., a comprehensive rehabilitation services company headquartered in Pennsylvania.
This set of modules will significantly expand the functionality within CGM webEHR and will facilitate the complete alignment of care provided by The Weston Group across multiple locations nationwide. These services include Physical Therapy, Occupational Therapy, Speech Therapy, Hospice Care, Home Healthcare and Alcohol and Drug (A&D) Rehabilitation.
With this module in CGM webEHR, practices are not limited to purchasing a rehabilitation centric application as CGM webEHR allows for having medical and rehabilitations workflows possible in the same application. The web based application provides a user friendly environment, while allowing therapists the ability to have their system follow them to any facility or locations where they see patients.
"In today's eHealth environment, it is important to offer solutions that contribute to the best patient care, while offering ease of use and availability," said Werner Rodorff, CEO, CGM US. "I am excited to see this partnership and the collaboration with Weston Group will result in the availability of a truly modern solution for rehabilitation practices."
"By forming a close alliance with CGM we have been able to design a solution that has bridged the gap for practices that not only require a medical EHR, but also require services necessary to provide rehabilitation care," said Randall A. Weston, President, Weston Group. "We are pleased at the collaboration that has taken place to design and build a tremendously impactful solution."
