eClinicalWorks, a Westborough, Mass.-based electronic health record (EHR) software company, has announced it will invest an additional $50 million over the next year in patient engagement and population health technologies.

The vendor says the $50 million investment is in addition to the $25 million that it announced for this year. Part of the funding will be used to hire an additional 100 software developers, the company said. The company adds that it will introduce home monitoring tools, a website for patients to find doctors and scheduling appointments, solutions for patients checking-in at doctors’ offices.

“Engaged patients make better and more informed decisions about their health and are one of the cornerstones for transforming healthcare,” Girish Navani, CEO and co-founder of eClinicalWorks, said in a statement.
