Template-Free EMR Takes Clinic Paperless and Helps Win Kentuckys First Patient Centered Medical Home

Owensboro, KY (PRWEB) May 02, 2012

The National Committee for Quality Assurance has awarded Family Physician Jeremy Bradley, M.D. Kentuckys first Patient Centered Medical Home.

In the Patient Centered Medical Home (PCMH), patient care is facilitated by use of Electronic Medical Records, online registries, health information exchange and other means to assure that patients receive the highest quality medical attention when and where they need it. PCMH relationships offer patients comfort, convenience, and optimal health throughout their lifetimes.

In addition to the prestigious Patient Centered Medical Home status, Doctor Bradley was honored with three Bridges to Excellence Awards, including excellence in Chronic Diabetes Management, excellence in Hypertension Management, and the Physician Office Systems Award, which recognizes leading-edge use of information systems in a clinical setting.

Doctor Bradley attributes his achievements to his love of medicine and to his Electronic Medical Records System, Praxis EMR. “I could not have accomplished this without Praxis EMR. said Dr. Bradley. “My overriding goal when I started my clinic ten years ago was to offer the highest quality care possible to an underserved community. Today, my rural town in Kentucky offers patient care that meets or exceeds any major medical center in the nation. Praxis EMR has helped make all of this possible. said Dr. Bradley.

The difference between Praxis Electronic Medical Records and all of the other ‘template-based’ EMRs is Praxis ability to adapt to each provider rather than forcing the provider to adapt to it. With Praxis, doctors are not required to use rigid templates to document patient encounters. “Praxis EMR handles all of the Patient Centered Medical Home and Meaningful Use Quality Measures automatically, and this enables me to focus first and foremost on my patients, said Doctor Bradley. “In many ways, our Patient Centered Medical Home brings good old-fashioned medicine into the future with exceptional EMR technology like Praxis. The system is easy to use, fast, and has the best practice guidelines in medicine today. This has allowed my medical quality and patient care to consistently improve. As a result, my profitability has increased as well. said Doctor Bradley.

Template-Free, Praxis EMR is based on a unique artificial intelligence technology, called Concept Processing that learns from each user to chart progressively faster and smarter. In essence, the user becomes both the teacher and student of the program. The latest Praxis Version 5 features discrete data embedded within free text that automatically populates laboratory and any discrete clinical data as the chart is generated. The EMR chart is also linked to practice guidelines that alert the physician to any practice advisory for that patient. Praxis is very powerful and unique technology, says doctor Bradley. Every day, I become a better doctor”.

About The National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA)

The National Committee for Quality Assurance’s Patient-Centered Medical Home is an innovative program for improving primary care. In a set of standards that describe clear and specific criteria, the program gives practices information about organizing care around patients, working in teams and coordinating and tracking care over time.

The National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) is a private, not-for-profit organization, dedicated to improving health care quality. Since its founding in 1990, NCQA has been a central figure in driving improvement throughout the health care system, helping to elevate the issue of health care quality to the top of the national agenda. The NCQA seal is a widely recognized symbol of quality. Organizations incorporating the seal into advertising and marketing materials must first pass a rigorous, comprehensive review and must annually report on their performance. For consumers and employers, the seal is a reliable indicator that an organization is well-managed and delivers high quality care and service.

Its unique approach to medical charting makes Praxis the most usable EMR on the market today. Praxis EMR’s focus on clinical usability consistently earns it #1 ratings in physician-user satisfaction polls, including #1 rankings in User Satisfaction, Overall Usability, Improving Medical Quality and several other categories in the ACP as well as the AAFP User Satisfaction Surveys.

MedX12 Integrates Noteworthy Medical Systems Products, Including NetPracticeEHRweb and NetPracticePM, into its Software Suite Designed to Take Physician Practices Paperless

Louisville, Ky. (PRWEB) August 7, 2009

MedX12, a privately-held healthcare software solution provider serving the US, has affiliated with Cleveland-based Noteworthy Medical Systems, Inc. as a Sales and Service Partner to expand the MedX12 software suite of products designed to take physician practices paperless. Key MedX12 web-based products in physician practice management and electronic medical records will now be powered by Noteworthy, including MedX12’s NetPracticePM and MedX12’s NetPracticeEHRweb.

Revenue Cycle Management and Related Web Services Fit US President Obama’s Initiatives Regarding Healthcare IT

“Given President Obama’s incentives to physician practices to lower healthcare costs and improve patient care through electronic medical records, we expanded our offerings with the highest level of healthcare IT (HCIT) available on the market today,” said Joe Sostarich, CEO of MedX12. To help drive the adoption of electronic health records by 2015, the federal government is investing $ 33 billion in incentives to providers under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009. To gain the maximum amount of incentives, providers must have a qualifying records system in meaningful use by 2011. In addition to incentives, the legislation specifies increasing financial penalties for physician practices that have not adopted certified electronic systems, Sostarich indicated. Visit http://medx12talk.wordpress.com for updates on HIT matters.

Since its launch in 2006, MedX12 has entered product categories that serve to enhance practice performance and patient care through back-end software solutions to the physician practice. “The MedX12 modular approach allows providers to select specific applications to address specific issues, or bundle applications to create a more comprehensive solution. The end-to-end SaaS (software-as-a-service) model minimizes the economic risk to the provider to convert to a new system,” Sostarich pointed out. Additional new product offerings in the suite will include: MedX12’s NetPracticeRESULTS, a reports and results management tool; MedX12’s NetPracticeERX, a streamlined prescription solution; and MedX12’s WebPractice secure patient web portal enabling online patient account transactions; as well as MedX12’s NetPracticePM Practice Management Software.

“We are delighted that MedX12 has become a Noteworthy Sales and Service Partner and anticipate exciting growth for both companies,” said Mark Conner, vice president of channel sales for Noteworthy Medical Systems, Inc. “MedX12’s ability to train on and service this cutting-edge software will make the adoption decision that much easier for their existing local clients and those to come.”

Louisville-based MedX12 is also moving to bring a Connected Care Network, powered by Noteworthy’s NetPractice MedicalHub, to Kentucky communities and beyond. The core of the solution allows healthcare data providers including hospitals, labs, radiology, pharmacies and more to share, send and receive critical clinical data with providers and patients. The MedicalHub provides an electronic Master Patient Index (EMPI), common clinical vocabulary, community health record, integration engine, security and authorization suite, and provider-to-provider and provider-to-data provider communications.

MedX12 recently moved into new offices at 10200 Forest Green Blvd., Suite LL in Louisville, Ky. A grand opening is planned for late August.
