Zix Corporation and eClinicalWorks form alliance, synch up systems
Zix Corporation, a global provider of secure e-messaging, e-prescribing, and e-transaction applications and services, and electronic medical records (EMR) and practice management systems provider eClinicalWorks, have announced a strategic alliance. The partnership will focus on an interface to enable bidirectional data exchange as well as an integration of certain applications. As part of the agreement, the companies also will co-market and support each other's sales efforts, according to the companies.
ZixCorp's PocketScript e-prescribing application and eClinicalWorks' clinical information systems will now be enabled to integrate with each other. Used within ambulatory care, this integration will provide a means by which to convert from paper-based offices to a fully digitized medical practice. Upon implementation, physicians will have the choice to initially select the PocketScript e-prescribing application and upgrade to eClinicalWorks' EMR/PMS systems. Additionally, existing users of eClinicalWorks will be given access to the electronic prescription features powered by PocketScript.
