St. John’s Mercy Health Care in St. Louis is the latest firm to sign on for electronic healthcare records services from Misys Healthcare.

The practice represents 150 physicians and 500 users in all across 64 locations.

Misys’ electronic services will include integrated patient records and reporting applications.

“We selected the Misys solution for two key reasons – the product’s performance and the company behind the product,” said Thomas Hale, president and CEO of Mercy Medical Group. “Before committing to Misys EMR, we confirmed physician adoption by implementing a rigorous pilot program across multiple sites. We concluded Misys EMR is a comprehensive system that combines ease of use, effective workflow and strong clinical content.

“In addition to performance, Misys brings tremendous value as a partner. Their strong financial position allows Misys
to significantly invest in EMR, which we see opening the doors for numerous innovations in how care will be delivered in the future,” he added in a statement.
