Krieger Eye Institute Increases Productivity with the iPad-based EHR System, EMA
When Dr. Don Abrams became the Chairman of Ophthalmology at the LifeBridge Health Krieger Eye Institute at Sinai Hospital in Baltimore, Md., he knew he wanted to implement an EMR system. He began looking at numerous systems that would support their various clinic locations, residency and fellowship programs and their multiple specialties only to be left with a disappointing solution.
