Siemens Provides Scott & White with NextGen EMR

Siemens Medical Solutions announces today that Scott & White of Temple, TX, one of the largest multispecialty physician practices in the U.S., has signed an agreement with Siemens to be its provider of NextGen Healthcare's electronic medical record (NextGen EMR) solution. This agreement will enable Scott & White to establish a framework for interoperability across its 15 ambulatory clinics, ultimately helping to improve clinical efficiencies, reduce costs and enhance the quality of patient care.
"Implementing this EMR solution in our outpatient environments will help us to more effectively manage physician and patient workflow," said Bill McCombs, Ph.D., chief information officer, Scott & White. "Our current system has provided valuable clinical information to all our physicians, but has lacked interoperability. Now, they will be able to interact with that information immediately, connecting them with supporting staff and enabling more streamlined processes across care settings."
Scott & White will implement NextGen EMR, which was recently certified by the Certification Commission for Healthcare Information Technology (CCHIT), first at its Bryan/College Station Clinic and in the Department of Ophthalmology at its main campus in Temple.
