Newport Beach, CA (PressExposure) December 31, 2009 -- Mitochon Systems Inc., a provider of free EMR systems and connectivity solutions for physicians, was granted âapproved partnerâ status by the Orange County Medical Association (OCMA). Mitochon Systems, one of just a handful of low cost emr (electronic medical records) providers, is one of the countryâs fastest growing EMR/EHR providers.

Beyond basic meaningful use, Mitochon is working toward the formation of a seamless connection between individual physicianâs offices, enabling efficient communication and sharing of patient records, both of which should help physicians deliver better outcomes.
âThe Orange County Medical Association is a great partner for Mitochon Systems. We look forward to helping OCMA member physicians acquire, implement and adopt EMR into their practices to meet meaningful use CCHIT criteria set forth by the federal government, as well as to achieve greater efficiency and better work flow.â said Dr. Andre Vovan, a Hoag Hospital medical staff member and Mitochon President and CEO.
