e-MDs was one of six finalists to be chosen to participate in MSSNY's rigorous evaluation process.  The vendors, who all service the one-to-ten provider group, were identified through their high KLAS ratings and asked to complete a 20-page functionality matrix answering detailed questions about their products.  The vendor responses were reviewed by MSSNY's evaluation committee, consisting of five health information technology (HIT) and EHR proficient physicians, including the MSSNY HIT Chair, Dr. Salvatore Volpe, a leading HIT champion.  The thorough evaluation process was conducted to identify "the best systems for our physician members," explained Dr. Volpe.  "We needed to flush out important processes, which if omitted by the vendor could result in medical errors and place the patient at risk by introducing adverse medical complications."

e-MDs was identified as a vendor partner capable of offering New York providers ample support, ease of use and optimal financial opportunities by adding EHR systems to their practice.  e-MDs was selected based on their affordability, ePrescribing capability, CCHIT certification, ability to interface with a State health information exchange (HIE) system, and system functionality and benefit to providers.  MSSNY recognized e-MDs as a sustainable, sound company with a proven track record of providing high-quality technology.  Ultimately e-MDs was chosen by MSSNY because of their shared vision for maintaining high standards in medical education and in the practice of medicine to ensure that quality medical care is available to the public.

"Our evaluation process was significantly thorough and only six vendors scored high enough to meet our expectations," said Ron Pucherelli, HIT Project Administrator for the Medical Society of the State of New York.  "MSSNY is happy to announce that e-MDs is one of our preferred vendors and we look forward to working with them and all our preferred vendors to provide our physicians with exceptional products and services."

"e-MDs feels there is a great deal of synergy between our two organizations in the areas of clinical informatics, a focus on quality of care, and physician leadership.  We are looking forward to working closely with the physician, resident and student members of the Medical Society of the State of New York and supporting their educational objectives, and helping them become advanced users of health information technology," said Dr. Michael Stearns, CEO of e-MDs.
