National Sheriff's Association Meeting: Washington DC

Mar 7, 2005 - DC, DCCorEMR announced today that it presented recently at the annual conference of the National Sheriff's Association in Washington, D.C. The annual winter conference was held at the J.W. Marriott hotel in downtown D.C. and included hundreds of representatives from sheriffs departments around the nation. CorEMR was invited to present on its exciting new Electronic Medical Records (EMR) system for corrections facilities.

Lane McCotter, president of CorEMR, expressed his excitement at the invitation and opportunity for the new company. "We're thrilled and honored to have been asked to present to this prestigious group. We feel very strongly that EMR is a critical issue for county jails, and that implementation of EMR solutions will save taxpayers millions of dollars in litigation costs, provide dramatic additional savings in increased operating efficiency, as well as result in better medical service for inmates."

According to McCotter, many county jails around the country do not have an electronic medical records system. "Most county jails simply cannot afford the expense of traditional EMR systems. The nature of inmate medical needs makes accurate medical records essential for jails. The risk of inaccurate or missing paper records creates huge risks for everyone involved. Our participation in the National Sheriff’s Association Conference will help get the word out that there are practical, affordable solutions available."

CorEMR began in 2004 to provide correctional facilities with affordable electronic medical records. Our management team has 6 years of experience specifically in jail and prison EMR/EHR management and over 30 years of experience in software design.
