e-MDs demonstrated their commitment to providing quality e-prescribing and health information technology by satisfying Surescripts’ White Coat of Quality criteria for 2010. e-MDs provided a signed commitment from company leadership affirming their commitment to quality, measured quality metrics as specified in the published industry guidelines, reported those metrics to Surescripts each month, implemented changes to software that addressed issues identified in quality reporting, and raised prescriber awareness through training.
Receiving the White Coat of Quality for e-MDs Solution Series provides further validation of the physician-founded, physician run company’s continued pursuit of technical excellence and usability; important requirements for doctors who are being increasingly dependent upon technology in their offices. This accolade adds to the numerous recognitions e-MDs has received over the last year including ONC-ATCB Meaningful Use Certification for all 44 Clinical Quality Measures as well as the optional Accounting of Disclosures measure, selection by the majority of regional extension centers that have created some form of vendor short list, and numerous top rankings in independent surveys, including receiving two 2010 Best in KLAS awards for Ambulatory EHR (2-5 physician) and Practice Management (2-5 physician).
