Centegra Health System Launches New Physician Network

Program features Electronic Health Records and Health Information Exchange

McHenry County, IL (Vocus) May 17, 2010 -- Centegra Health System and Dell Services ( have launched Centegra Physician Network, a health information technology sharing program that creates the region’s first-ever Health Information Exchange (HIE). The program also provides local physicians with access to cutting-edge Electronic Health Records (EHR) and Electronic Practice Management (EPM) systems that will improve quality and healthcare delivery.

Centegra Physician Network will enable participating physicians and hospitals to better share and exchange life-saving medical information and patient histories seamlessly through a highly secure electronic network.

Centegra Physician Network offers physicians an opportunity to install an affordable EHR to advance and digitize their office records and enable patients to better maintain their medical histories, test results and other critical information. Additionally, Centegra Physician Network will enable participating physicians to implement EPM software in their practices, which streamlines certain key administrative functions.

"The Centegra Physician Network is an exciting opportunity for physicians,” said Dr. Robin Purdy, medical provider with Centegra Primary Care. “We will be able to focus on patient care while being supported by the technology and expertise needed to help improve outcomes and streamline the way we deliver care. It enhances medical records storage and retention at individual medical offices, while also providing real-time access to critical information other healthcare providers need. In my opinion, this is a positive move for my practice, as well as the entire McHenry County healthcare delivery system."

“By creating Centegra Physician Network, we are taking the technology burden off of physicians so they can focus on providing the best possible care for our patients,” said Centegra President and CEO Michael S. Eesley. “Dell is helping us bring these innovations to doctors quickly so they can begin taking advantage of their benefits and helping improve healthcare for the entire community.”

“We are honored to work with Centegra Health System and support the development and implementation of the Centegra Physician Network,” said Berk Smith, president, Dell Services Healthcare. “Automated technology solutions such as e-prescribing, electronic documentation and better accounting controls will quickly and securely transform the way patient care is provided. This is major step in creating a healthcare environment that breaks down the boundaries created by the historic paper-based method of delivering care.”
