Sutter Health Extends EHR Offering to Physicians in Private Practice

Sacramento, Calif.-based Sutter Health has announced plans to launch an electronic health record offering — Sutter Community Connect — to qualified physicians in independent practice, according to a health system news release.

Physicians practicing in the more than 100 Northern California communities that Sutter serves gain another EHR option as they look for affordable, easy-to-use software systems designed specifically for independent practices. Sutter Community Connect offers a full software suite that includes an EHR for clinical care management and software applications for registration, scheduling and billing. Sutter Community Connect is 2011/2012 compliant and has been certified by an ONC-ATCB.

Regional hospital corporations within the Sutter Health network will make donations to qualifying independent physicians that cover up to 85 percent of software and implementation costs. Sutter Physician Services will oversee the roll-out of Sutter Community Connect beginning this summer.
