Optometry IPA endorses Eclipsys’ PeakPractice as preferred EMR

July 12, 2010

ATLANTA–(BUSINESS WIRE)– Eclipsys Corporation announced that its PeakPractice electronic medical record (EMR) solution recently received preferred provider endorsement by the National EyePA Coalition, a large independent physician association (IPA) representing 4,900 optometrists and ophthalmologists in 28 IPAs in 26 states. Under terms of the endorsement, FoxFire Systems Group, a South Dakota-based value-added reseller of PeakPractice will be the preferred EMR provider to the IPA.

Eclipsys’ PeakPractice is an integrated, NET-based ambulatory EMR solution that includes e-prescribing, patient portals, patient kiosk, image management and a Web portal for physicians and patients. By selecting PeakPractice, members of the IPA also will be equipped to utilize Eclipsys’ vendor-neutral HIE platform, Eclipsys HealthXchange, powered by Medicity, another important capability given that optometrists frequently refer patients to other specialists such as endocrinologists and ophthalmologists.

PeakPractice solution (version 1093) is a CCHIT Certified 08 ambulatory electronic health record (EHR), and meets the Certification Commission’s EHR criteria for office-based use. The CCHIT Certified “seal of approval” for EHR products provides a consensus-based, government-recognized benchmark for ambulatory EHR products. By looking to products with the CCHIT Certified seal, physicians and other providers can reduce their risk in selecting an EHR product, allowing them to focus their evaluation on the special needs of their practices.
