Springfield Clinic's Electronic Health Record

In 2008, Springfield Clinic’s physician practices successfully completed the implementation of a new, state-of-the-art technology called electronic health records (EHR). EHRs, also known as electronic medical records, essentially replace traditional paper-based charts, by storing patient-specific health information, like medications, test results and physicians’ notes, in a secure electronic format. The result is more accurate and timely health information that helps Springfield Clinic providers better care for you.
With over 800,000 annual patient encounters, generating in excess of one million transcription notes and 500,000 prescriptions, a robust electronic health record was considered the only real solution to improve patient care, increase efficiency and prepare for the future. During 2007, movement to the EHR was projected to result in savings of $1.6 million in transcription costs alone. These savings, in addition to the clinic’s commitment to quality and desire to improve continuity of care, led to the selection of Allscripts Healthcare Solutions TouchWorks application, made operational through Motion Computing Ultra Mobile Solutions.
