With healthcare data constantly flowing in from multiple sources, how are providers supposed to best organize patient information within their EHR? Truly knowing your patient population starts by finding a means of aggregating scattered data and then funneling it into a convenient and organized system.

Understanding the importance of your cardiovascular health is key to reducing the chances of contracting life-threatening diseases. Heart disease is the leading cause of death for men and women in the United States, and adopting a healthful diet alongside regular physical exercise can reduce the chances of contracting the disease.
Stability, continuity of care, and outstanding service matter
National Patient Recognition Week occurs each year during the first week of February, coinciding with another popular event — Groundhog Day. This year, we imagine that winter’s duration is probably not the first thing on the minds of providers and patients. They’re more likely to be asking how much longer the COVID-19 crisis will last!

There are few things as satisfying as placing the last piece of a jigsaw puzzle in the correct spot.
January 29, 2021, is National Puzzle Day and even though finishing a jigsaw puzzle may be satisfying, solving unique problems specific to healthcare is another area worth celebrating.

Getting a sneak peek at the industry’s near future
They say no one can read the future. But if you read the Federal Register and rules from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), you can get a fairly good idea of what the near future holds for healthcare policy.
In 2018, lung cancer death rates in the United States fell to the lowest rate ever recorded — a 31% drop since peak numbers in 1991. Researchers believe that much of this success is due to a lesser amount of smoking in the country and better methods of screening and treating the disease.
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.
What do you get when you combine lots of snowfall, a worldwide pandemic, and a nearly complete lockdown of your state?
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.
In a year filled with challenges, eClinicalWorks® and healow® have delivered the telehealth solutions practices need to reinvent themselves and continue to serve their communities.
More than half of providers faced an increase
According to a summer 2000 survey conducted by the National Council for Behavioral Health, demand for mental health services has skyrocketed during the COVID-19 crisis. The survey found that more than half of agencies surveyed had seen an increase in demand for their services.
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.

It’s been months since the COVID-19 pandemic transformed the way providers practice medicine. For many, the need for an almost overnight transformation became too much of a strain on their resources, and practices were forced to shut down permanently. Others like Little River Medical Center found the means to adapt and utilize comprehensive tools and strategies to find success in the wake of a global pandemic.
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.
