Medical record vendors are probably under more review and scrutiny today than ever and being selected as well as being a certified ONC vendor is important as with so many choices today, we are comparing notes and experiences.  e-MDs is an advertiser at the Medical Quack and you can always find a link to their site for additional information under the resources column on the right hand side of this site.  MSSNY is a non profit organization that works with physicians to encourage the adaptation of medical records for their members.  BD 

AUSTIN, TX – e-MDs, a leading provider of electronic health records (EHRs), announced they have been selected as an EHR vendor partner image by the Medical Society of the State of New York (MSSNY).  MSSNY is a non-profit organization committed to representing the medical profession as a whole and advocating health related rights, responsibilities and issues.  MSSNY will work with e-MDs to encourage and facilitate the adoption of EHR technology by the state’s healthcare providers.  As a selected vendor, e-MDs will help providers manage efficient implementation and achievement of Meaningful Use in a cost effective manner. 
e-MDs was one of six finalists to be chosen to participate in MSSNY’s rigorous evaluation process.  The vendors, who all service the one-to-ten provider group, were identified through their high KLAS ratings and asked to complete a 20-page functionality matrix answering detailed questions about their products.  The vendor responses were reviewed by MSSNY’s evaluation committee, consisting of five health information technology (HIT) and EHR proficient physicians, including the MSSNY HIT Chair, Dr. Salvatore Volpe, a leading HIT champion.  The thorough evaluation process was conducted to identify “the best systems for our physician members,” explained Dr. Volpe.  “We needed to flush out important processes, which if omitted by the vendor could result in medical errors and place the patient at risk by introducing adverse medical complications.”
