Formed in 1952 by Albany, GA native John S. Inman, Jr., MD, FACOG, The Veranda grew from a traditional yet forward-looking obstetrics/gynecology practice to a multi-specialty provider of health services for the entire family. Today, the practice has 12 physicians and seven mid-level providers delivering care in the areas of OB/GYN (including high-risk), family practice, endocrinology and pediatrics.

The practice wanted a solution that would include an integrated electronic health record (EHR)/practice management (PM) solution, as well as one that

could support multiple specialties as the practice considered growing outside of its OB/GYN roots.

Before a new clinic was constructed and the EHR/PM system was installed, The Veranda held community focus groups comprised of both current patients and non-patients. “What we discovered is that they had a strong bond with their OB provider, but were concerned about the availability of coordinated care services

for their entire family, including children who were a bit old for a pediatrician but not quite ready for internal medicine. So we committed to expanding our scope, first adding family practice and then pediatrics and endocrinology.

Today, every physician and allied health professional at The Veranda uses PrimeSUITE to document and deliver care, and the practice has been paperless for years.
