Indianapolis-based HealthNet, Indiana’s largest federally qualified health center has selected Westborough, Mass.-based eClinicalWorks’electronic medical records and practice management solution for its more than 110 providers and resident physicians in its eight locations, the company says. In addition, the ambulatory clinical systems company says the healthcare organization will use its eClinicalWorks Enterprise Business Optimizer (eBO) for enhanced reporting capabilities and its eClinicalMessenger VoIP messaging service.

According to eClinicalWorks, its EMR/PM will allow HealthNet to streamline processes between practice locations for decreased cost and increased patient safety. HealthNet has also chosen to implement eBO, which the company touts uses meta-data to provide the practice with more flexibility through the creation of customized reports and by performing clinical and financial analysis. The eClinicalMessenger is embedded in eClinicalWorks EMR/PM and is a messaging service that utilizes VoIP to enable physician practices to send messages, either in batches or singularly, to patients with appointment reminders and lab results.

HealthNet provides care in Indianapolis and has a network of five primary care centers, an OB/GYN care center, a pediatric and adolescent care center, and eight school-based clinics. The healthcare organization provides care annually to more than 42,000 individuals and families, many of whom are uninsured or underinsured and live below the federal poverty level.
