Excuse our regular programming for these important messages from our sponsors. Ok, not really messages from our sponsors. Just a big Thank You to all the EMR and EHR advertisers.
It’s fun for me to look back at the origins of EMRandEHR.com. I use to call it my “throw away” blog. Now, it’s turned into a really great place for discussing EMR and EHR. Not to mention the hot topics of meaningful use and iPad EMR (2 of the top search engine referrals for this site). Now I have a new throw away EMR site. I’m really proud of the EMR and EHR readership and the discussion that happens in the comments. Not to mention the great addition of Katherine Rourke as a regular writer. She provides some unique perspectives.
Now, on to the important stuff. Check out these new EMR and EHR advertisers since I last posted in December:
DrChrono – An EMR built from the ground up for the iPad and includes medical speech to text built in. They offer features like eRx, Paperless Medical Billing, Speech-to-Text, Customizable Note interfaces, and drug-drug interaction. Drchrono offers a freemium pricing model. So, you can go and download their free version to your iPad and try it out. I’m still trying to convince them to send me an iPad so I can try it out. Sadly, my hopes of winning an iPad at HIMSS were shattered. One day I’ll get my hands on an iPad and try these and other EMR software out. Until then, check DrChrono out and let me know what you think in the comments.
Nuesoft – I always have strong emotions when I see the name Nuesoft. About 6 years ago I took a trip to Nuesoft’s Atlanta office and was trained in EMR. I was a tech person with no healthcare knowledge, but the people at Nuesoft helped me get up to speed. Enough about my experience. Nuesoft offers a SaaS EHR software along with a medical billing service called Nuetopia. They also create great videos. Here’s one video they just created about Reworking Claims Submission Workflow to Maximize Revenue.
Records Management, LTD – One major issue with any new EMR implementation is what to do with all of the old paper files. Records Management Ltd offer complete records management solutions for medical practices dealing with this issue. They image and index your files with a state-of-the art technology and then secure them both physically and digitally. I also love that they had a service to handle retiring physicians records as well. I hadn’t ever thought about that need.
Medical Web Experts – I’m really happy to have John Deutsch and his team at Medical Web Experts advertising on EMR and EHR. He was my first ever advertiser. Among a number of marketing services that he offers, Medical Web Experts is putting in a lot of work in the patient portal space. They have a real focus on the customer (doctors and patients) that I like and I’m interested to see their product develop.
Also, a big thanks to advertisers that have renewed their ad: Practice Fusion, Ambir, Sfax, MxSecure, MDCare EMR, Enterprise Software Deployment, and Mitochon Systems. Ok, that’s pretty much everyone renewing. Thanks to those advertisers that support what we do.
