MONTVALE, NJ--(Marketwire - April 15, 2010) - SRS, the leader in high-performance hybrid EMRs, today announced that Desert Orthopedics has selected the SRS hybrid EMR for its 16 providers. Desert Orthopedics provides first-class orthopaedic care to the communities of central Oregon.

"We cannot afford to have our physicians slowed down, devoting their time to data entry, as required by other EMRs," says Pat Hansen, Administrator, Desert Orthopedics. "Unlike traditional EMRs, the SRS hybrid EMR enables our providers to efficiently and effectively treat patients without pointing and clicking their way through exams." 

"SRS allows me to focus on my patients, and not a computer screen," says Michael Ryan, M.D., Desert Orthopedics. "My patients are my priority, and I want to provide them with my time and full attention so that they receive the best treatment possible. Because SRS is so easy to use and designed with efficiency in mind, I have more time to spend with each of my patients." 

SRS was designed with direct input by its high-performance physicians to provide them with a system that fits their needs, helps them to work more efficiently, and enables them to achieve a rapid return on their investment. SRS, which has built the largest national network of high-performance practices that successfully use an EMR, attributes its unmatched adoption rate to ease of use, fast implementation, and an accelerated timeframe for training physicians and office staff.

"SRS allows physicians to focus on their patients and lets practice staff operate in an efficient and productive manner," says Evan Steele, CEO of SRSsoft. "Desert Orthopedics finds great value in these attributes and we are confident they will experience benefits in these areas with the SRS hybrid EMR. We're happy to have them join our growing national network of 5,000 providers."
