NEW YORK – After an intense 18-month selection process, a proven commitment to clinical quality earned SigmaCare® a contract to deploy electronic medical records (EMR) throughout Metropolitan Jewish Health System’s (Metropolitan) skilled nursing facilities.
Metropolitan, a nationally recognized nonprofit organization, operates Metropolitan Jewish Geriatric Center, Shorefront Jewish Geriatric Center, and Menorah Home and Hospital. All of the facilities are active participants in the Advancing Excellence in America’s Nursing Homes campaign, underscoring their commitment to improving the quality of life for residents and staff in America's nursing homes and focusing on quality improvement and self-regulation.
