Financing Options for EHR Conversion Offer Flexibility

A philosophy that has served the Anchorage Women’s Clinic well for 15 years emphasizes the importance of local experts collaborating to meet the healthcare needs of their patients.


The four practicing partners of Anchorage Women's Clinic (AWC), two of whom are the original founders, aim to take care of each patient, mind and body, whatever her needs may be. Their clinic offers complete women’s health—more than the standard services you’ll find from most offices— at two convenient locations; Providence Hospital Anchorage and Providence Professional Building in Eagle River.

The clinic’s philosophy is one First National Bank Alaska Vice President Melissa Reiser can identify with. “Our bank’s familiarity with trends in healthcare delivery helps us anticipate the banking needs of Alaskans like the medical practitioners at AWC,” Reiser said. So when Paula Bradison, the Executive Director for AWC, told Reiser her medical clinic expected a temporary reduction in business productivity during its conversion of medical records from paper to electronic format, Reiser was ready with a solution.

“Our financing options for conversion to Electronic Health Records equipment offer up to 100% financing of the EHR product bundle,” she explained. “We understand there is a certain amount of reduced productivity while a new system is installed before it’s up and running, so we also offer up to 6 months deferred payments.” This fit the bill perfectly for AWC.

“Our medical practice has worked with the banking experts at First National since we opened 15 years ago, and they’ve always had the solutions to our healthcare business challenges,” said Bradison.
