ACS, A Dallas-based Xerox company, recently announced its acquisition of The Breakaway Group, adding a new cloud-based service to help healthcare professionals accelerate their adoption of Electronic Medical Records (EMR).

The Denver-based Breakaway Group’s technology, PromisePoint allows caregivers to practice using an EMR just as they would in the hospital or doctor's office. By simulating their environment, they get familiar with using the system to enter orders and document patient care, without jeopardizing real patient data.

With this acquisition, ACS adds to its list of services that help healthcare providers get the most out of meaningful use funding and prepare for upcoming changes for ICD-10 compliance. In addition to selecting, deploying, integrating, and supporting EMR technology, ACS can now educate and ensure that healthcare professionals use the EMR system for clinical benefit.

PromisePoint can be customized to imitate the desktop, laptop or tablet set-up for the specific hospital or doctor's office, including the way the information is presented by different EMR vendors like Allscripts, Cerner, Epic or McKesson. The Breakaway Group delivers the solution as a service to accommodate regulation and technology changes, as well as staffing changes or the addition of new departments.
