Practices Gain Electronic Health Records, Practice and Claims Management and Dedicated IT Staff
Jersey City, N.J. – December 11, 2008 – ITelagen, innovative provider of one-stop, flat-fee healthcare information technology (IT) and support, today announced it has aligned itself with industry leader Allscripts to provide small to mid-sized physician practices with a complete healthcare IT solution – including a dedicated IT support staff. As the healthcare industry’s One Stop Shop for EMR (electronic health records), ITelagen offers practices full turnkey implementation and support of Allscripts’ MyWay platform, giving smaller medical practices access to the same type of technology tools and efficiency enjoyed by much larger organizations.
Allscripts MyWay is an integrated solution covering practice management, electronic health records (EHR) and claims management to allow smaller-sized physician practices to apply cutting edge HIT to their daily operations. ITelagen handles all facets of technology implementation and support for a flat, subscription-based fee, acting as a dedicated IT department for practices that could otherwise not afford such resources. From consultative services, to implementing, to hosting the data center and supporting MyWay, ITelagen covers all bases for its physician clients.
“Allscripts is pleased to partner with ITelagen on our MyWay solution,” says Allscripts Channel Partner Vice President Kelley Schudy. “ITelagen’s deep expertise with MyWay and IT in general helps physician practices get up and running quickly on the platform and use it most effectively. Even more importantly, since ITelagen is focusing on their IT needs, physicians can concentrate their attention where it’s most needed: on patient care.”
ITelagen utilizes the latest technologies to host and manage EMR applications and proactively support all aspects of computers, network and staff members for practices of virtually any size and specialty. By combining IT, hosting and certified EMR expertise, ITelagen serves as a single point of contact for IT and EMR infrastructure and provides unlimited IT helpdesk support to physicians and staff for a flat monthly fee.
“In every healthcare IT implementation, there are four necessary components,” explains John O’Keefe, chief executive officer for ITelagen. “There’s the software itself, implementation, the hosting of data and ongoing support. Allscripts is clearly the industry leader in developing best-in-class healthcare solutions. ITelagen takes it from there, bringing one-stop IT support to physician practices at a fraction of the traditional cost and effort.”
