18-provider Southern Oregon Orthopedics adopts SRS EHR

SRS, a leader in productivity-enhancing EHR technology and services for high-performance physicians, announced today that Southern Oregon Orthopedics (SOO) has selected the SRS EHR to replace its failing EHR system for its 18 providers. SOO is located in Medford, Oregon, and is the largest orthopaedic surgery group in southern Oregon.

"Our original EHR was not flexible enough to meet our productivity needs -- with tedious drop-downs it was not user friendly," says Yaser A. Metwally, M.D., SOO. "We de-installed our EHR and replaced it with SRS because the SRS EHR offered our physicians a productivity- and specialty-focused path to data management, meaningful use, and the delivery of high-quality patient care, while supporting -- and enhancing -- our fast-paced workflow."

"Our previous EHR was not meeting our transcription needs, and we could see from the outset that it would not work in meeting meaningful use requirements," says Sherri Battles, R.N., Director of Clinical Services, SOO. "SRS support has been excellent from day 1 -- any questions we had were addressed immediately, and we have been exceedingly confident in the technology and the company. It's quite obvious how SRS earned its impressive reputation for customer service and support, and why SRS is the EHR industry-leader in orthopaedics."
"Physicians who have had a negative experience with another EHR are a growing proportion of our client base," says Evan Steele, CEO of SRS. "As educated consumers, they truly understand and appreciate the value of a productivity-driven EHR and of the eager-to-please corporate culture that pervades every facet of our company -- from our employees to the productivity-focused technology."
