A community-based model of care demands much more than that which traditional EMR systems can offer.

In the community-based model of care, healthcare professionals treat their patients outside of the traditional boundaries of healthcare facilities, and care coordinators interact with patients and multiple provider groups over the phone or in their patients’ homes.

This white paper discusses the challenges of using traditional electronic medical records to support this model of care and proposes a more robust solution that integrates data from a range of services into a centralized repository, enabling a more efficient workflow.
