CareFinity® for Centricity EMR

Centricity EMR™ Downtime
& Archiving Solution

eMedApps is part of the Centricity Partner Program with athenahealth.

Every healthcare organization needs a comprehensive business continuity plan. Relying on paper during unplanned outages from severe weather, software transitions, or network downtime is not a safe and secure option. With no access to patient records, schedules, documents, images, and notes, it’s nearly impossible to run a clinic or health system. Even planned outages, upgrades, and conversions require access to a comprehensive patient record.

An efficient business continuity solution will save your healthcare organization from the lost revenue and damaged reputation caused by short-term EHR and health IT system outages.

Keep Your Practice Running

Our CareFinity® business continuity solution syncs a copy of pertinent patient data and schedules every 15 minutes ensuring accurate, up-to-date patient records and schedules are available anytime, whether your Centricity EMR is available or not.

Unlike some other PDF/Print based solutions on the market, CareFinity® is a versatile application that brings the data to your fingertips and allows you to document your visit without resorting to paper. Our browser-based application allows clinicians, schedulers, and administrative staff to securely access stored patient information from any device – including mobile devices – whenever and wherever they need it.

How CareFinity® Works

Every 15 to 30 minutes, CareFinity® copies all changes made to patient data in your Centricity EMR to one or more “clone” servers. If the Centricity EMR is unavailable, users simply click on the CareFinity® icon from their desktop or mobile device, log in, and view their current appointment schedule or patient search screen.

Simply choose a patient from the schedule or search for the desired patient and CareFinity® will deliver all the data, images, results, notes, and documents you need.

Document Your Visits With CareFinity® While the EHR Is Down

With CareFinity®, you can document your visit in real time and the system will put the note back into the patient’s chart in the Centricity EMR when it becomes available.

CareFinity® for Groups with One Location

Patient data is copied from the Centricity EMR to CareFinity® every 15-30 minutes. CareFinity® copies can be located at your main site or hosted off-site at our data center. Users access patient information using the CareFinity® icon on their desktop, or through their mobile device. The application is always up and ready to use so you can continue to see patients with their entire chart history at your fingertips.

CareFinity® with Remote Locations or Hosted Centricity EMR Application

CareFinity® can be installed at select remote locations. If connection to the main EMR is lost, remote clinics can access their local CareFinity® copy. This configuration also works well for hosted EMRs. If your Internet connection to the Centricity EMR goes down, you can access your local CareFinity® copy and continue to see patients.

Designed by Clinicians for Clinicians

Our Centricity EMR business continuity solution is intuitive, and easy to learn. No in-depth training is necessary for clinicians. And for your IT team, the overhead on the system is minimal, so there are no performance issues to worry about.

Providers love our user-centric features, comprehensive Patient Dashboard™, search functionality, convenient click-to-call patient contact technology, views of the inbox and task lists, and easy-to-navigate design.

Flexible Configuration to Solve Your Unique Downtime Worries

Each clinic has its own downtime concerns. If your Centricity EMR is hosted by a third party, you may be concerned about your Internet connection. If your Centricity EMR is housed in your own data center, then hardware failure or natural disasters may worry you. If you have multiple locations, you may be worried about outages when your main Centricity EMR site is unreachable.

Our CareFinity® solution can be configured to handle all these concerns and any others you may have. We will work with you to configure the best solution for your unique needs.
