International Oncology Network (ION) Partners with Altos Solutions for Web-based EMR Offering
ION is the country’s largest physician services organization dedicated solely to oncology, with a membership that encompasses more than 3,200 practices nationwide. The company is dedicated to helping its members make strategic and informed decisions to improve their practices. OncoEMR’s ability to streamline clinical management through a Web-based application that requires no maintenance and minimal capital outlay was a key factor in ION’s decision.
“Our physician members told us they want the benefits of a traditional
EMR system without having to worry about setting up their own servers
and installing their own software. OncoEMR meets all those needs with
its Web-based, subscription model,” said
The Web-based design and efficient processes of OncoEMR reduce the cost of technology for the practice. The system also allows oncologists and their staff secure access to patient information from any location. Additionally, the program’s charge-capturing and expense-tracking capabilities allow OncoEMR the ability to increase practice revenue.
“OncoEMR will play a substantial role in acclimating the ION oncology practices to electronic medical records. It will provide a technologically sophisticated way for the oncology practices to get a complete view of day-to-day operations,” noted Santos.
“Partnering with ION and providing its membership with access to OncoEMR
is a great example of how physician service providers and technology
developers can work together to play a small role in advancing patient
