Illinois Bone And Joint Institute Partners With Emdat To Deliver Advanced Patient Care Through Highly Productive Medical Documentation

Emdat Inc., leading provider of web-based medical documentation software, recently announced a partnership with Illinois Bone and Joint Institute (IBJI). A premier provider of orthopaedic, rheumatologic and podiatric services, IBJI is using a host of Emdat applications to increase productivity, accuracy and continue to provide the best care possible, including: 

  • Emdat Mobile allows to IBJI to bridge the gap between physicians and their Electronic Health Records (EHRs). Now, IBJI’s nearly 90 physicians can review appointments, create and upload dictations, and edit, review and approve completed transcriptions on their Apple iOS or Android mobile devices. 
  • InSync and InTouch provide advanced voice recognition (VR) and Qualified Text capabilities, so IBJI can focus on providing award-winning care in 25 specialized clinical areas, reduce costs and increase dictation productivity.
  • InQuiry and InCommand, both HIPAA-compliant applications, make medical documentation and its management more efficient than ever before by streamlining workflow. Patients can be assured their records are secure and accessible by physicians at all 20 IBJI locations.
  • ShadowScribe, speech understanding technology supported by M*Modal, improves production time, reduces per line labor costs, and improves the quality and consistency of medical reports, enabling the IBJI team to bring the latest technology to their comprehensive services.

“Successful use of EHRs in our locations depends on physician productivity and satisfaction, which require solutions that make documentation easier and less time consuming. One way in which we are able to help physicians focus on patients and boost the return on EHR investment is through Emdat Mobile,” said David Wold, Chief Operating Officer at IBJI. “We see tremendous value in integrating the Emdat platform and have already experienced their superior implementation and ongoing service.”

Emdat is working with IBJI to implement its suite of solutions throughout all IBJI sites in the Chicago-land area.

“Illinois Bone and Joint Institute is at the forefront of world-class orthopaedic care and we are excited to help their physicians and staff continue to do what they do best,” said Emdat CEO Randy Olver. “Now, they can spend less time looking at computer screens and more time focusing on their patients – an increase in productivity that is a win-win for everybody.”
