With the success we’ve been achieving, we believe we can get 80 percent of our patients under control by year end. Those are extraordinary results. We couldn’t have done this with our EMR alone. Phytel’s ability to help us identify and manage that population has definitely been a key to this rapid improvement.

—Dennis Mamaril, M.D., project leader for Arch Health Partners,
