EHR/EMR Software Resource Guide

The expansion of health information technology is important to the improvement of the health care industry as a whole. Health IT, which includes the electronic health record (EHR), enables health care providers to effectively manage patient care through the use and sharing of patient records.

If your medical office is seriously considering upgrading your old paper-based medical record system to the electronic health record, here are some of the most popular EHR/EMR applications.

Bundling our practice management system, which includes the front office & billing modules, with our Electronic Health Record EHR/EMR software applications, creates a complete single EHR/PM solution that yields more efficient workflow with improved revenue capture. We understand the payer environment, processing more than 1.5M claims per month through our system, for more than 85 specialties. We are able to identify payer rule changes quickly, and continuously adjust the software to reflect those changes, achieving first-pass claim acceptance rates of 95 percent or better. Most practices are able to recoup the annual cost of AdvancedMD PM + EHR Software within three months, by reducing claim rejections to less than five percent, a significant improvement over the national average of 30 percent!
