Medisoft v15 Helps Small Physican Offices Improve Practice Efficiency and Cash Flow
Port Charlotte, FL (PRWEB) May 22, 2009-- Today MedicalBillingSoftware.com announced the availability of Medisoft® v15, the latest version of its industry-leading practice management (PM) solution used by more than 70,000 providers in small physician offices. With the new release, MedicalCharting.com also announced the availability of Medisoft Clinical, which combines the PM capabilities of Medisoft v15 with Practice Partner Patient Records, a CCHIT Certified® 08 Ambulatory electronic health record (EHR). The result is a single PM/EHR solution for small physician offices that are focused on delivering the highest quality to their patients at an affordable price.
Medisoft 15 also includes the integration of Focus Reports (now Medisoft Reports) into Medisoft Advanced and Medisoft Network Professional. Medisoft Reports includes a wide variety of reports that give unparalleled information on managed care plans, in-depth financial information, marketing statistics, service facility financial information, templates to export data for use in other software and the ability to run custom reports.
"Medisoft medical billing software offers significant functionality for the price," Selent continued. "But the reporting functionality needed improvement. Now, Medisoft customers have as good, if not better, reporting than users of much more expensive systems."
Medisoft Clinical is a CCHIT Certified® 08 Ambulatory EHR and meets the Certification Commission's criteria for office-based use. With the recent passage of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, the U.S. government will invest more than $19 billion in healthcare IT incentives to accelerate the adoption of EHRs by office-based physicians and hospitals. While it is still uncertain as to what type of certification will be required to qualify for the incentives, industry experts believe there is a likelihood the requirements will be based on the standards that have been adopted by CCHIT.
Medisoft Clinical is sold and implemented primarily through through its sister website www.medicalcharting.com MedicalCharting.com contracts with McKesson to sell, implement and support McKesson's EHR and practice management systems for small, independent practices.
"Medisoft Clinical is designed and priced to be within reach of our current Medisoft customers, and at a price point they can afford," said Harry Selent, president of MedicalBIllingSoftware.com. "In addition, our implementation methodology that MedicalCharting.com has developed, simplifies the startup process and takes much of the pain out of the conversion from paper to electronic health records or EMR software. Through this implementation system, doctors can even still continue their current transcription, which can be imported into the EMR software program."
"We have been a Medisoft practice management user since 1998 and added the EHR component this year," said Dr. Alan Kravitz of Complete Foot & Ankle. "The most important factor in selecting an EHR was integration with our current billing system. It was also important to have local implementation and support, and to minimize the disruption to our practice and cash flow."
"At a time when small physician offices are struggling to bring in enough revenue to maintain viable practices, McKesson's focus is on enabling them to provide high-quality care while operating as efficiently as possible," said Harry Selent "Medisoft v15 offers new reporting capabilities as well as billing and scheduling enhancements that further streamline operations, reduce overhead and optimize cash collections."
