  • Creating & Customizing Templates
    • In addition to commonly used templates installed during vendor implementation, templates can be created and customized specifically to specialty/practice needs.
  • Notes / Encounters
    • Increase patient engagement, volume, and satisfaction via simplified note-taking with structured notes, unstructured notes, or both.
  • Voice Dictation
    • Voice dictation allows providers to dictate notes in 90 seconds or less, insert sub-templates, and navigate charts without having to click and type.
  • Smart Text
    • Smart Text saves time, allowing for customizable, pre-built notes to be inserted directly into the patient’s chart.
  • ePrescribing
    • Providers can prescribe patient medications electronically, eliminating handwriting errors while increasing patient safety and convenience.
  • Simplified Lab Processes
    • Integration with lab facilities nationwide allows providers to send requests and access results with a button click.
  • Telehealth
    • Enabling information sharing and out of office patient telecommunication, Telehealth offers enhanced provider and patient schedule flexibility.
  • Patient Portal
    • A growing CMS requirement, Patient Portals allow patients online access to their health records, appointment scheduling, prescription refill requests, bill pay, and patient-practice messaging.
  •  Messaging
    • Messaging simplifies both internal & external practice communication for providers, staff members, and patients.
  • Create SuperBill / Charge Slip
    • Upon patient note completion, the EHR compiles ICD-10 codes and sends information to the Practice Management billing system, reducing redundant data entry while prompting claim and billing generation.
