The platform is customizable for various specialties such as internal medicine practices, chiropractors, physical therapists, family medicine, podiatrists, and psychiatrists.
The core features of Practice EHR include electronic medical records, medical billing, patient scheduling, and medical billing services. These applications are available as part of one integrated suite. Electronic medical records are offered as a stand-alone feature for practices that need a simplified solution. Users can also have access to e-prescribing, lab integration, procedure workflows, narrative reports, tablet PC support, patient portals, and ONC-ATCB certification. Eligibility inquiry, claim scrubbing, and workers’ compensation claims are designed for practices that choose to utilize the medical billing application.
Practice EHR is an entirely cloud-based solution. It is accessible via mobile devices and remote desktops.
Pros of Practice EHR
- Practice EHR provides a simple integrated experience that helps practices manage tasks all in one place. It offers a seamless workflow from check-in to check-out, billing to claim submission, and scheduling to follow-up. The software works with any specialty and comes with a ready-to-use library of templates tailored to the unique needs of a single or multi-specialty practice. All templates follow specific regulatory and coding guidelines to help capture patient visits accurately.
- Practice EHR simplifies patient visits with an intuitive workflow. This EHR software reduces the time spent charting and facilitates writing notes, prescribing medications, coding encounters, and managing patients. Medical teams can have more quality time for patients and less time with their computers.
Cons of Practice EHR
- The ready-to-use library of templates are tailored to the unique needs of the single or multi-specialty practice. These templates are set up by the Practice EHR team, and some practices would prefer greater ability to edit templates on the fly. Practice EHR doesn’t provide this ability in order to ensure documentation accuracy.
