Mobile System to Launch in Three Skilled Nursing Facilities

NEW YORK, Dec. 10 /PRNewswire/ -- After an intense 18-month selection process, a proven commitment to clinical quality earned SigmaCare(R) a contract to deploy electronic medical records (EMR) throughout Metropolitan Jewish Health System's (Metropolitan) skilled nursing facilities.
