To say a lot happened in 2020 would be an understatement. In this blog, we wanted to take a moment to focus on how eClinicalWorks® has changed over the last year and what we are looking forward to in 2021 and beyond.
All the elements for success are in place
The challenge of delivering quality healthcare during a global pandemic made 2020 an extraordinarily challenging time. The new year promises to be equally challenging, but perhaps in a more hopeful way. With vaccines against COVID-19 nearing approval and proven solutions for telehealth and contactless check-in in place, it’s a great time for medical practices to assess their next moves.
On March 16, Internists Associates of Ridley Park, Pennsylvania closed their physical doors to the world. But that didn’t mean that the care ever stopped for the more than 8,000 patients who rely upon the practice.
From rural health centers to urban clinics and everywhere in-between, eClinicalWorks® and healow® are helping practices reinvent themselves to face emerging challenges and provide quality care to patients.

How online payments can help practices and patients
Even the best medical practices can struggle to provide great healthcare while keeping their practice operating in an efficient and sustainable way. One key to success is separating those things you can do something about from those that are beyond your control.
If there’s one word to describe Dr. Stephen Salopak, it would be impressive. He runs a sole provider practice in Lafayette, Louisiana, where he not only provides care for the many patients who live in the city but also those in the surrounding communities.
Practices turning essential tools for sustainability
More than six months after the World Health Organization declared the COVID-19 outbreak a global pandemic, the world continues to search for hope amid great loss. According to the WHO, some 170 potential vaccines are under development, with more than two dozen already in clinical trials.
A new school year? Begin it right!
As Aristotle said long ago, “Well begun is half done.” And there’s no better time to put that ancient saying to work than at the start of a new school year.
Remember, Project Kickstart is here to help
Once upon a time, you dreamed of medical school. You knew that would be hard to achieve. And it was. But you being you, there was always another dream — that of opening your own medical practice.
Finding ways to maximize safety for patients and healthcare staff is on everyone’s mind these days. At Internist Associates, a four-provider practice located in Ridley Park, Pennsylvania, contactless check-in has been instrumental in enhancing safety for everyone giving and receiving care.
You’re making changes — make the right ones
With COVID-19 forcing changes to medical practices, 2020 is a great time to go back to basics. As students return to school and families juggle their schedules, it’s the perfect time to do your healthcare IT homework to make sure you’re delivering the services and information they need.
With so much uncertainty surrounding COVID-19, safety is on everyone’s mind right now. Providers may wonder about the best ways to continue seeing patients while minimizing the risk of spreading coronavirus and easing the anxiety of patients and staff.
