Optum Physician EMR is one of the multiple web-based applications offered by Optum, a global company that offers a wide array of health information technology services. It can be fully integrated with all the operational functions of the practice. Pulling charts, approving refill requests and signing lab results are now just a click away. This simplicity not only strengthens the patient physician experience, but also improves quality and reduces costs. Physician EMR is geared for the use of small physician practices as stand-alone systems, but can also be integrated with other Optum applications such as Patient Portal, Practice Management, and GE Centricity.[1]
