Office Practicum Celebrates 35 Years Supporting Pediatric Care & Practice Growth | State

FORT WASHINGTON, Pa., May 27, 2021 / PRNewswire-PRWeb / – Office Practicum (OP) has been a leader in the EHR market for 35 years with its suite of new and innovative solutions specifically designed to support pediatric practices. In planning their first practice in Park Slope, New York, OP founders Fred and Dr. Edna Pytlak, to provide personalized care to their families nearby in a modernized “country doctor” fashion. When the Pytlaks practice first opened its doors on July 1, 1986, the first patients of OP were registered.

While much has changed in technology and healthcare since then, OP’s unique focus on the needs of independent pediatric practices has remained. While traditional EHRs focus on areas of adult care, OP is the only certified pediatric specific EHR currently on the market. 35 years later, OP is still committed to optimizing its solution to better support the specific care pathways and needs of its pediatric practices and their communities and patients.

In support of its mission and in celebration of its 35th year, OP is pleased to announce the newest members of the OP Advisory Board, a diverse group of physicians and practice leaders whose voices help represent the patients and communities OP serves. The purpose of the Advisory Board is to discuss new clinical and business developments and provide first-hand feedback for physician advancement, market needs and communication initiatives.

OP is delighted to welcome the newest members of its Advisory Board. They will provide valuable perspective and guidance as the company continues to innovate to support greater practice efficiencies and deliver personalized patient-centered care.
