New York eHealth Collaborative (NYeC), the coordinating regional extension center for the state of New York, has selected Greenway Medical Technologies, a provider of electronic health record (EHR), practice management and interoperability solution PrimeSuite, as a preferred EHR provider to more than 5,000 practitioners statewide.
NYeC said that the federal department of Health and Human Services (HHS) has awarded grants to two separate regional extension centers, the state of New York, and New York City, both of which have selected Greenway’s PrimeSuite as an EHR recommended for implementation by the two regions’ healthcare practitioners.
Combined, the $48.2m for the two New York grants target more than 10,000 practitioners overall. Established in 2006 and supported by the New York State Department of Health, NYeC conducted a series of EHR Meaningful Use Summits in conjunction with NYC REACH as part of their EHR adoption programs.
Greenway was a sponsor of the events, which drew statewide attendance of more than 1,000 participants.
Tee Green, president and CEO of Greenway, said: “We are very pleased to be a preferred partner of the eHealth Collaborative’s statewide Regional Extension Center program, and support its efforts to increase EHR adoption and meaningful use while working to improve regional and national care coordination.
“The REC grant programs are vital to the creation of a national health information network, and Greenway takes the foresight of these combined selections very seriously. PrimeSuite’s usability and integration of clinical, financial and administrative workflows will benefit practitioners in REC jurisdictions, and our customizable clinical workflows have proven benefits for primary care and specialty practices.”
