CDW Healthcare, part of the public-sector subsidiary of CDW Corporation and a leading provider of technology solutions to healthcare organizations, today announced that it entered into an agreement with iMedica Corporation, a developer of healthcare software solutions for physician practices, to deploy hardware solutions compatible with iMedica’s Patient Relationship Manager™ (PRM) software. The PRM software, fully integrated into technology solutions from CDW Healthcare, combines electronic health record (EHR) and practice management (PM) capabilities into a single application operating from a unified database.

“Small- to medium-sized ambulatory providers often face an array of challenges as they digitize their practices, including juggling multiple databases, maintaining functionality of separate applications and cost containment,” said Bob Rossi, senior director for CDW Healthcare. “These providers need to leverage technology that simplifies management, reduces operating overhead and streamlines data access. iMedica’s PRM solution, combined with CDW Healthcare’s range of best-in-class hardware offerings and industry expertise, fulfills a critical need by providing physician practices with an efficient, scalable solution that merges access to clinical and financial systems.”

iMedica’s PRM software, a single application EHR and PM solution that utilizes Microsoft’s latest .NET and SQL technology, adapts to a physician’s workflow. Utilizing the latest tablet computing technology, providers chart at the speed-of-thought, code and bill immediately. Added efficiency is gained with connectivity to the Pharmacy Health Information Exchange, a secure pharmacy-owned network that enables e-prescribing. The software also contains built-in iMediVault™ functionality, which includes a patient portal providing patients another communication medium, a provider portal that enables caregivers a secure access of patient data from any Internet terminal and off-site data backup of financial and clinical information. Information availability and accessibility is also enhanced through real-time synchronous data replication that provides a redundant copy of patient financial and clinical information.

In addition to providing a variety of hardware products capable of supporting iMedica-certified technology solutions, CDW Healthcare will establish a Web-based customer interface that simplifies purchasing decisions and procedures. CDW Healthcare also will coordinate efforts between the technical teams of both companies to manage deployment, installation and training activities. CDW Healthcare will provide further value through its standard pre- and post-product deployment services, including onsite assessments, custom solutions deployment, 24 x 7 technical support, and product lifecycle management.

“Our partnership with CDW Healthcare presents a fantastic opportunity for both companies to expand their offerings to the ambulatory marketplace,” said Michael Nissenbaum, President and CEO for iMedica. “The depth of CDW Healthcare’s industry knowledge combined with its extensive hardware offerings and broad customer base will enable us to bring our PRM solution to a far larger audience of providers nationwide through a very trusted partner.”
