Alliance Community Health Care, Inc. has a long history of investing in the technology needed to deliver highest quality care to our patients. In fact, we are widely recognized by industry experts as an innovator in implementing technology to enhance our services.
In 2008, Alliance was one of the first health care centers in the U.S. to convert our paper-based patient records system-wide to one that is completely digital. This change, known as an Electronic Health Record (EHR) or Electronic Medical Record (EMR), was a massive investment for our health center. We made the choice because the long term benefits were substantial.
Our successful transition to EHR means we now accomplish significantly more with significantly less. EHR systems keep our costs down while improving service to our patients. All schedules, patient interactions, patient histories, labs, billing, pharmaceuticals, and referrals are now managed electronically. That frees up resources to focus on our core mission: providing high quality, compassionate and affordable healthcare.
The change to EMR has even further benefits to patients:
Better access: All Alliance Community Health Care locations have access to patient information, so your record of care is easily shared and exchanged wherever you are treated;
Better insights: Alliance physicians can evaluate and compare your treatment with that of the overall population and specific individuals;
More evidence-based care: Alliance can easily track your health progress in the system and help you stay on a path to better health;
Efficient pharmacy: Alliance can e-prescribe medications through the system for timely and accurate prescribing;
Improved sharing with other providers: Alliance’s EHR can efficiently interface with Health Information Exchanges (HIE) to securely share information with other providers throughout New Jersey.
Investing in the future means investing in technology and using it to meaningfully to deliver quality care to our patients and the community. At Alliance Community Health Care, we are committed to growing through innovation and leveraging technology to serve you better.
