Dr. Christopher Cochran and EZ Niles Speak at ACE Conference in Boston

Dr. Christopher Cochran from Ozarks Medical Center’s (OMC) Internal Medicine Clinic and EZ Niles, Applications Analyst III, from OMC’s Information Technology Department, recently spoke at the Allscripts Client Experience (ACE) conference in Boston, Mass. Allscripts provides physician practices, hospitals, and other healthcare providers with practice management and electronic health record (EMR) technology.

OMC recently completed a two-year initiative to install Allscripts throughout the OMC clinic system. As of June 2015, primary care and specialty clinics have completed the implementation of Allscripts, giving providers and staff ready access to patient information across the system facilitating smoother transition for our patients from primary to specialty care.

Cochran and Niles spoke about the journey of the implementation of the new software and the frustrations that came along with it. Once the learning curve was overcome, both spoke on the added productivity, safety, and time-saving attributes.

The ACE conference is also a wonderful networking tool in which Dr. Cochran and Niles were able to meet other providers from organizations similar to OMC and share ideas, according to Niles.
