The Value of Membership
The Modular IT Software Suite represents a less-intrusive alternative to a full E.H.R. implementation. SJMHS Physician Network has developed a solution that solves the “three ‘C’s” to adoption within physician offices:
- Capital. The Web-based software means no new computers and no disruptive hardwired installations within your physician office. The intuitive programming requires very little staff training to overcome a short learning curve. Medical records are stored in the ‘Cloud’ with the application service provider (ASP), meaning your data is safe and secure from external physical forces.
- Connectivity. Participating physicians are connected to the SJMHS Health Information Exchange (HIE), a secure platform that accommodates the sharing of results and clinical data between hospitals, physicians and affiliated providers and patients – regardless of their current or future IT solution.
- Cost. The majority of the cost to implement is borne by Saint Joseph Mercy Health System. Physician offices pay just 15% of the installation per year. That’s less out-of-pocket than every other hospital system in southeast Michigan.
