Headline: "Zynx Health and eClinicalWorks Enter Agreement to Offer Clinical Decision Support to EHR Software Users." They've joined forces and they've created: Zynx AmbulatoryCare order sets for eClinicalWorks clients. According to a recent press release, "the evidence-based content will provide an out-of-the-box solution to help eClinicalWorks clients improve quality of care and succeed in performance measure programs." Let's hope that we see improvements in patient outcomes as more healthcare providers make evidence-based clinical decisions.
“The new features in eClinicalWorks Version 8 made order sets a key part of clinical workflow,” said Scott Weingarten, MD, MPH, president and CEO of Zynx. “The fully integrated library of order sets from Zynx will help eClinicalWorks clients take advantage of this new EHR functionality. Evidence-based clinical decision support, such as order sets, is becoming increasingly important as physician practices work to demonstrate ‘meaningful use’ of EHRs.”Zynx Health was founded in 1996 by thought leaders in evidence-based healthcare and healthcare quality improvement. Acquired by the Hearst Corporation in 2004, Zynx has grown to become a recognized leader in evidence-based clinical decision support, and offers a suite of online solutions that help clinicians treat patients based on the best available evidence from systematic research. The Zynx team of physicians, nurses, and allied health professionals rigorously reviews the latest peer-reviewed literature to develop clinically relevant summaries and distill evidence-based best practices.
“eClinicalWorks offers its customers the latest technologies to help improve patient care, through both its solutions and its partners,” said Girish Kumar Navani, CEO and co-founder of eClinicalWorks. “Using Zynx with our EMR/PM system will offer providers additional resources in line with the latest performance measures.”
