Fallon Clinic, a large, multi-specialty medical group practice based in Worcester, Mass., is a recipient of the Association of Medical Directors of Information Systems’ (AMDIS, Lake Almanor, Calif.) annual award recognizing excellence in applied medical informatics.

The Clinic’s IT department developed interfaces to four regional hospitals to capture patients’ clinical information and load it into electronic records at Fallon Clinic. The non-profit organization is also working on SAFEHealth.org, a health information exchange designed to simplify the patient consent process and to integrate clinical data directly into other healthcare facilities’ EHRs.

In addition, Fallon Clinic has loaded over 15 years of detailed clinical information into its EHR, providing clinicians with a more comprehensive view of their patients’ medical history.

Founded in 1929, Fallon Clinic has over 1,700 employees and approximately 250 physicians who see patients in more than 20 locations, including the Worcester Medical Center.
