WALTHAM, Mass. and WESTBOROUGH, Mass. (May 12, 2010) IntrinsiQ® and eClinicalWorks® today announce a partnership to integrate IntelliDose®, IntrinsiQ’s chemotherapy management solution, with the eClinicalWorks unified Electronic Medical Record (EMR) and Practice Management (PM) solution to give oncology practices a complete, best-of-breed health information system.
“There’s a reason IntelliDose is trusted by oncologists nationwide: It was created by oncologists for the specific demands of managing chemotherapy,” said Girish Kumar Navani, CEO and co-founder of eClinicalWorks. “The pairing of eClinicalWorks software and IntelliDose results in an end-to-end oncology management solution that meets the current and future needs of oncology practices of all sizes as well as hospitals and health systems.”
More than 40,000 providers and 120,000 healthcare professionals across all 50 states rely on eClinicalWorks. eClinicalWorks’ unified solutions allow extensive patient data to be shared within a network of physicians, while streamlining workflow, enhancing charge capture and eliminating the chase of paper charts.
While EMR systems create a clinical information hub for practices of all types, the specialty of oncology is particularly complex. Administering chemotherapy regimens requires calculating highly-specific drug infusion instructions and dosing – that need to be altered in real-time based on a patient's lab tests – and managing treatment over an extended period of time. This complexity demands a specialized clinical information management as well as charge capture system. Oncology patient data must integrate with other areas of a healthcare network, from surgery to lab to billing.
IntelliDose transforms the manual process of chemotherapy regimen calculations into electronically verified orders. It allows oncology practices to standardize cancer treatment pathways, and ensure the highest levels of patient safety and efficiency practice-wide. IntelliCharge™, the charge capture module of IntelliDose, automates chemotherapy coding and billing. Using detailed information from nurse charting steps, complete encounter information – including infusion time, type, and number of drugs – is sent directly to practice management or billing systems saving time, eliminating lost charges, and optimizing reimbursement. Both IntelliDose and IntelliCharge seamlessly interface with eClinicalWorks to integrate clinical and billing information into the patient record.
“After partnering for joint customer implementations, we’re pleased to formalize our relationship with eClinicalWorks,” said Jeff Forringer, president of IntrinisiQ. “With seamless data-sharing, physicians, nurses, practice administrators, and IT professionals spend less time on coordinating records – and more time on providing high-quality patient care.”
