Health o meter® Professional Scales Offer Direct Connectivity to Allscripts™ EHR Systems

Pelstar LLC, manufacturer of Health o meter® Professional Scales, announces direct connectivity to Allscripts™ Enterprise™ EHR and Professional™ EHR systems. The Health o meter® Professional Allscripts Connectivity App is the latest addition to the scale company’s series of EMR/EHR connectivity solutions. With this application, the Allscripts EHR system automatically receives weight measurements from a Health o meter® Professional digital scale, including height and Body Mass Index (BMI) if available. The data can then be saved into the patient’s health record within the practitioner’s Allscripts EMR system.

Connecting Health o meter® Professional digital scales to ARRA certified Allscripts EHR solutions can help healthcare facilities demonstrate Meaningful Use to qualify for the U.S. government’s EHR Incentive Program. This connectivity application can also improve workflow efficiencies and reduce the risks of data entry error. Health o meter® Professional’s Vice President of Sales and Marketing, Mark Denning, says “We are thrilled to provide our customers with another EHR connectivity solution with the new Allscripts Connectivity App.” To download the free application, visit the Connectivity Solutions page http://www.homscales.com/innovations/connectivity-solutions
