Can a full-featured, touch-enabled electronic health record (EHR) app running on an enterprise tablet help enhance clinic operations and improve the patient experience for a busy medical practice?
Yes it can, according to health and IT professionals at Resurgens Orthopaedics, Georgia’s largest orthopedics practice. But they say the mobile solution must be well suited to the clinic’s ...workﬂows and the demands of practice-wide deployment and management.
Resurgens conducted a proof of concept (POC) in which physicians and clinical staﬀ modified their workﬂows to incorporate Allscripts Wand* for TouchWorks* EHR, powered by Windows* 8 and running on HP 2 in 1 devices with the Intel® Core™ i5 processor. Resurgens leaders say both the practice and its patients benefit from the Allscripts and Windows 8 solution running on Intel® processor-based devices—and that it overcomes issues they encountered earlier using an iPad*-based solution. They’re now in the process of making the Windows 8 solution a standard option for their physicians and medical staﬀ.
