The Barrie and Community Family Health Team in Barrie, Ontario, has selected New York-based Chartcare to implement a clinical management solution.

Chartcare says it will roll out its EMR and practice management applications for 60 physicians at 35 different locations within the Barrie area starting next month.

Each practice will maintain its individual billing environments but share all other common elements such as patient scheduling, patient recalls, EMRs, and lab and medication data. Almost 350 workstations will connect securely through the province’s Smart Systems for Health Agency.
