ION Partners with Altos Solutions for Web-based EMR Offering

International Oncology Network is the country’s largest physician services organization dedicated solely to oncology, with a membership that encompasses more than 3,200 practices nationwide, a business unit of AmerisourceBergen’s Specialty Group, has entered into an agreement with Altos Solutions that gives ION’s membership of community-based oncology practices preferred access to OncoEMR, Altos Solutions’ electronic medical records (EMR) system.

Mark Santos, executive vice president and general manager for ION said, Our physician members told us they want the benefits of a traditional EMR system without having to worry about setting up their own servers and installing their own software. OncoEMR meets all those needs with its Web-based, subscription model. And as the first oncology-specific EMR to run exclusively online, OncoEMR fits exactly with the way our members run their practices.

The Web-based design and efficient processes of OncoEMR reduce the cost of technology for the practice. The system also allows oncologists and their staff secure access to patient information from any location. Additionally, the program’s charge-capturing and expense-tracking capabilities allow OncoEMR the ability to increase practice revenue.

John Willey, president of Altos Solutions said, Partnering with ION and providing its membership with access to OncoEMR is a great example of how physician service providers and technology developers can work together to play a small role in advancing patient care. We’re extremely proud to establish a relationship with the clear market leader in ION and look forward to working with the company to support the success of community oncologists.
