"We were very limited to what we could do with the system," she said. "But Sage [Software] has a great product. The EHR allows providers to create as many forms as they need to enhance workflow for their day. And it reduces the potential for errors in billing because you can program codes and create macros."
Additional functionalities such as growth charts and alerts features
make Intergy by Sage well-suited for the pediatric environment, including:
-- Immunization decision support
-- Growth tracking, including accommodating corrections for preterm birth
and graphical representation of data
-- Percentile calculations, including BMI
-- ePrescribing, expressed in both volume and/or mass of the drug
-- Newborn registration without Social Security number
-- Allows connection of prenatal data (such as from a prenatal
ultrasound) with postnatal data
-- Phone triage forms library incorporates a practice's protocols and
"When we began our search for a new system," Smith added, "we were looking for a solid company that we could count on to be up and running at all times. What's more, we wanted to be able to create our own unique templates to reduce documentation time and create good overall workflow for our providers."
Sage Software leadership says that while pediatrics isn't their only specialty, it is one in which they've invested because they appreciate the extensive needs of pediatric groups.
"The immunizations, the records, the school paperwork required -- it all creates a particularly cumbersome load of administrative overhead for pediatric groups," said Sage Software Healthcare SVP of Marketing Sharon Howard. "We value and appreciate our pediatric partners -- as we do all of our customers -- and we look at their particular needs and strive to alleviate their pain points."
