(Marietta, OH, January 21, 2008) - Marietta Health Care Physicians, Inc. (MHCPI), a 64-provider physician corporation and affiliate of Marietta Memorial Hospital, will soon integrate Electronic Medical Records to maintain critical patient medical information. MHCPI is working with Austin, Texas based, e-MDs, a leading developer of health care software solutions for physician practices and groups.
“Patients will experience many benefits from our use of an electronic medical record,” says Melinda Nugent, MHCPI administrator, “A patient’s medical information can quickly and easily be pulled up, past exams, procedures and test results are provided almost immediately. This is especially important in an emergency situation.

This collaboration enables care providers to work more efficiently.”
