EMC honored for leadership in electronics records

by | October 28, 2011 9:38 am

   The Georgia Health IT Regional Extension Center just named

Emanuel Medical Center as one of the state’s most innovative and

influential healthcare providers for their leadership in the

nationwide transition toward electronic health records (HER). 

Comprised of seven individual providers and ten critical access and

rural hospital provider organizations, they make up an exclusive

group of leaders known as the Meaningful Use Vanguard (MUV).

   Brian Riddle, hospital CEO was quick to praise his staff.  “My

administration and staff deserve all due credit for this

accomplishment.  Rhonda Durden, Dave Flanders and Ginger Wiles and

their staffs identified the need for this important initiative and

really focused their efforts on it.  I am very proud our hospital

is included in this prestigious group.”

   Rhonda Durden, hospital CFO, also had people to thank.  “Without

the complete support of our physicians and Ginger Hall and the

nursing staff, this implementation could not have succeeded.  Our

physicians and nurses embraced this technology from the beginning

and have supported it all the way.”

   MUV is an initiative that is designed to honor, thank and

convene clinicians who have successfully implemented electronic

health records.  The special ceremony, part of the 11th Annual

Primary Care and Prevention Conference, was sponsored by Hometown

Health and Healthcare Management Systems, Inc.  MUVers serve as

local leaders and advisors in the nation’s transition toward an

electronically-enabled healthcare system.

   “To be singled out as one of the leaders in this vitally

important initiative is a high honor, indeed,” continues Riddle. 

“Our community should be very proud of its hospital and the

dedicated people who work here.”
