Athens Regional Medical Center, a 375-bed regional referral center located in Athens, Ga., has selected Eclipsys PeakPractice EMR/PM solution.
As a current user of Eclipsys’ integrated clinical system (Sunrise Enterprise), Athens Regional will use PeakPractice to link patient information with its network of physicians. Physician networks to be involved in the initiative include Athens Regional Physician Services, Athens Regional FirstCare and Athens Regional Specialty Services, which encompass 58 physicians practicing at 27 locations.
In a later phase, Athens Regional will utilize PeakPractice to link care information with participating affiliated community physicians in Northeast Georgia. The community EMR program will utilize the Eclipsys HealthXchange, powered by Medicity, to enable the exchange of information across a network of disparate and disconnected EMR systems.
