eClinicalWorks

eClinicalWorks is a Massachusetts-based company that sells electronic medical record (EMR), practice management (PM) and personal health record (PHR) software and services to health care providers. According to the company, more than 5,000 private physician offices, 3,500 health centers and 500 hospitals and health systems in the United States use its software.

The eClinicalWorks modules are available as onsite client/server deployments or as Software as a Service and can be purchased individually or collectively. When integrated, the modules let providers review patient histories, past visits, current medications, allergies, labs and diagnostic tests while also managing patient accounts and verifying eligibility for services; patients, meanwhile, can request prescription refills, send messages to physicians and view lab results and appointment reminders.

eClinicalWorks also offers a mobile browser that health care providers can access using a smartphone and an embedded messaging service based on Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP).
