Midwest NeuroSurgery & Spine Specialists Chooses Intergy EHR by Sage
Date:10/28/2008

Nebraska neurosurgeons to deploy integrated electronic health record and

physician practice management solution to streamline workflow and

facilitate clinical outcomes measurement

TAMPA, Fla., Oct. 28 /PRNewswire/ -- Midwest NeuroSurgery & Spine Specialists, an eight-neurosurgeon group practice in Omaha, Neb., today announced that it has selected Intergy EHR by Sage electronic health record and physician practice management software to streamline workflow and to facilitate clinical outcomes measurement.

The group, which is the largest neurosurgery practice in the region, providing care at several leading facilities in Omaha, Nebraska and western Iowa, will go live on the single database electronic health record (EHR) and practice management (PM) on Dec. 2. Intergy will also be utilized for the practice's Imaging Center (MRI, CT and X-ray) that is located within the Medical Office Building.

"Intergy EHR's functionality and the quality and responsiveness of Sage's customer service, which we have experienced firsthand with its Medical Manager, made it easy for us to select that solution over others we evaluated during our due diligence process," said John E. Dunn, R.N., M.H.A., Midwest NeuroSurgery's administrator. "We have been working very closely with Sage and expect a smooth transition."

In addition to streamlining practice workflow, the EHR will support Midwest NeuroSurgery's commitment to provide the best possible care. Midwest Research Foundation, the practice's research arm, will gain the ability to continuously monitor data in almost real time to evaluate and improve patient outcomes. Until now, the practice has relied on premed college students to manually review and analyze paper records, a resource-intensive, time-consuming task.

"Midwest NeuroSurgery & Spine is constantly striving to provide the highest level of patient care and Intergy EHR will support that goal two ways," Dunn said. "First, it will provide physicians access to data they need to make better, more informed decisions, which is a huge benefit especially when they are conducting semi-monthly and monthly clinics at 15 sites in western Iowa. Second, it gives us the means to identify areas where we are performing well and where we can improve."

According to Sharon Howard, senior vice president, sales and marketing for Sage Software, "We are pleased to partner with Midwest NeuroSurgery and applaud its commitment to deliver the best care possible by automating the flow of information and standardizing best practices within its organization."
