CHAPEL HILL, N.C., April 30, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — TSI Healthcare, a national leader in the sales and support of customized healthcare information technology, celebrates Western Carolina Eye Associates’ selection as winners of the annual “Circle of Excellence Award.” Established in 2009, the “Circle of Excellence” recognizes practices that have positioned themselves as leaders in Healthcare IT and champions of improved patient care through the use of Electronic Health Records and Practice Management systems. The award focuses on key indicators that measure efficiency, regulatory compliance, and delivery of quality care through the use of technology.

Practice Manager Brenda Warren from Western Carolina Eye Associates’ of Boone, NC commented, “We’ve reached a turning point in healthcare where practices have to make a decision: continue with the status quo or evolve along with our changing healthcare system.

However, there are many Health IT vendors in the industry. The ‘Circle of Excellence Award’ serves as an example of TSI Healthcare’s unmatched dedication to our practice. Ultimately, using EHR with the assistance of TSI helps us provide a higher level of care to our patients.”
