MCVI Selects Sage Intergy EHR to Streamline Efficiencies

January 13, 2009 - Michigan CardioVascular Institute (MCVI), a twenty-two location cardiovascular group practice based in Saginaw, selected the integrated Sage Intergy practice management (PM) and Sage Intergy EHR electronic health records system to improve care, workflow, data access and reporting.

The group, which includes 33 nationally recognized cardiologists and heart surgeons and employs more than 260 people at 22 locations in mid Michigan, also wants to standardize care and prepare for a pay-for-performance environment.

When Sage Intergy EHR goes live in mid 2009, MCVI will be able to:

- Prescribe and sign orders and charts electronically for the first time
- Know before a patient leaves the office whether prescriptions are covered by insurers' drug formularies, thereby reducing telephone calls from pharmacists
- Eliminate redundant data entry due to Sage Intergy EHR and Sage Intergy PM's integrated, single-database platform.
- Streamline access to patient information

The group plans to purchase Sage Practice Analytics and Sage Intergy Practice Portal, enabling the practice to mine its data and facilitate secure, electronic practice-patient communication, respectively. These tools are also expected to allow the practice's cardiovascular research team, which is comprised of 12 full-time employees, to work more efficiently.
