The long-standing professional partnership between ECPS™ and MetroSouth Medical Center has produced tangible results in the Emergency Department, and hospital-wide. In addition to providing advanced medical care, MSMC was one of the first 40 hospitals in the country to successfully attest for CMS Stimulus Incentives as part of the ARRA/HITECH Act of 2010. This milestone was supported by Empower Systems™ ONC Certified comprehensive Electronic Health Record (EHR) technology. With over $8 Million in incentives projected over 4 years, MSMC is clearly an industry leader on many levels.
ECPS™ president, Seth Guterman, MD FACEP noted that “MetroSouth Medical Center consistently achieves success both clinically and financially due to their ongoing commitment in the best technology available. Quality of care and patient satisfaction continue to set them apart from most medical centers, not just in the Midwest, but across the country. The ECPS™ team is proud of our contribution to the proven success of the MSMC Emergency Department and the way in which it benefits the community.”
Serving its community since 1905, MSMC, a 410-bed facility, is one of a growing number of U.S. hospitals to embrace technology in order to deliver more expedient patient care. As a regional innovator, MSMC continues to demonstrate successful strategies that other hospitals seek to emulate. For over 12 years, Emergency Care Physician Services™ has provided talented, board-certified Emergency Medicine physicians to EDs in the Chicago metro area. Their team of respected physicians upholds the best interests of their patients, colleagues, and the hospital facility.
