Empower Inpatient+Ambulatory™

The Empower Inpatient+Ambulatory™ Electronic Health Record (EHR) is an ONC Certified 2014 Edition Complete EHR.

While it meets, or exceeds, all ONC requirements, it still retains its proven user-friendliness for all users. Being built from the perspective of practicing physician and nurses means that the product replicates the complex workflow and clinical care considerations that are essential to efficient documentation. To put it simply, Empower Inpatient+Ambulatory™ is built by clinicians, for clinicians.


Because hospitals are complex environments, the user-friendliness paradigm is also translated for I.T. and administration. Scalable system architecture means stable support and the One Patient, One Chart, One Database concepts means that data mining for administrators is streamlined and powerful.

Product Features

Compelling Reasons Why Clients Choose the Empower Inpatient+Ambulatory™ Product

Proven User Acceptance

As hospital leadership knows all too well, if an Electronic Health Record slows down documentation of patient care either at the bedside or at the end of a shift, both physicians and nurses will logically request technology alternatives. Empower Inpatient+Ambulatory™ users are proficient on Day One and hone their skills faster than with competing products.

Fully Comprehensive

Empower offers the ONC Certified Comprehensive EHR which can serve as the clinical backbone to take your facility completely paperless in record time. By capturing 100% of clinical data for every patient and organizing it into documentation that is accessible to ALL hospital departments, successful EHR technology is easily within reach.

Designed by Clinicians

Documenting with Empower is intuitive and logical for physicians and nurses alike. They need only learn 8 and 6 buttons, respectively, in order to produce a complete medical record for every patient. Smart Technology ensures that the rest of the chart is complete with all necessary documentation.

Proven ROI

Empower provides measurable cost savings plus increased revenue. Capturing all charges in every department means unparalleled profit and positive financial performance. Empower requires that clinicians document care more thoroughly and in accordance with government compliance and coding mandates, which means appropriate billing for every patient and therefore a sizeable revenue increase.

What Physicians Love

Intuitive, yet fully comprehensive EHR that leverages the proprietary One Patient, One Chart, One Database concept.

User Friendliness

Documenting in Empower is intuitive and logical for physicians. They need only learn 8 in order to produce a complete medical record for every patient. Smart Technology ensures that the rest of the chart is complete with all necessary documentation.

Simple Physician Orders

One-Click Order Entry! Empower simplifies the Order Entry process significantly. Any time an order is entered, including verbal orders, they are highlighted to notify the physician to sign off on them. This means NO incomplete charts/medical records, NO unsigned orders, and translates to 100% physician acceptance.

Efficient SOAP Notes

The physician’s SOAP note is tremendously flexible and much faster than paper or inefficient electronic documentation. Available one time, frequently used in one place, assessment plans and templates can be built and easily edited, saving significant time.

No Change to Workflow

The clinical process is not altered—it’s enhanced and streamlined. For nurses, every aspect of documenting patient care is more efficient, and physicians can maintain their preferred method of documentation: transcription, Voice Dragon, or free-text can be used at any time for thorough but fast documentation.

Easy Trending & Filtering

Empower simplifies the process to the degree that physicians can easily manage their own data mining and compliance reporting. Advanced reporting features are available, requiring just a bit of additional training.

Unlimited Forms & Reports

The integrated form builder offers as many forms as clinicians want. All data is captured in structured fields, translating to unlimited MUAM, OPI, and QA reports for clinical staff and hospital administration.
