Waiting Room Solutions® (WRS), a leading web-based EMR and PM provider, announced today that First Internal Medicine, Prof LLC has chosen the Waiting Room Solutions Internal Medicine Electronic Medical Record (EMR) and Practice Management System (PM) for its internal medicine practice.
First Internal Medicine Prof LLC has been located in Greenwood Village, CO for two years. Dr. Igor Huzicka, MD, who has over ten years of clinical experience, is the sole provider of this internal medicine/primary care practice. Dr. Huzicka divides his time between three locations, seeing both office-based and hospital-based appointments. First Internal Medicine realizes that technological advancement is needed to fuel practice growth. Through the implementation of the Waiting Room Solutions EMR and PM for internal medicine, Dr. Huzicka will have the business and clinical tools necessary to develop his young practice.
The Waiting Room Solution Internal Medicine Specialty EMR and PM was specifically equipped with the features necessary to successfully run an internal medicine practice. The system contains internal medicine templates and comprehensive clinical content, which make the charting process faster and more accurate. The WRS software also contains e-prescribing, patient portal, order tracking, and PQRI incentive reporting capabilities. Lastly, the internal medicine software offers EKG, PFT and laboratory device integration, and lab interfaces with Quest and Labcorp, among others. Together, these features fulfill all of the diverse needs of an internal medicine practice.
When choosing the Waiting Room Solutions Internal Medicine PM and EHR, First Internal Medicine was especially drawn to its web-based interface and its ability to bring all office functions in-house. Since the system is web-based, all office data can be reached through an internet connection, increasing accessibility for providers. The patient portals available through the practice website provide a similar remote access for patients, who can use their portal to make appointments, receive reminders, and communicate with their physician. To facilitate the process of transitioning from paper to electronic charting, the practice will take advantage of specialize templates and voice recognition software. The Dragon Medical voice recognition solution allows physicians to efficiently navigate and dictate medical information and treatment plans directly into patients’ electronic records. Dragon Medical 11 is up to 99% accurate, and includes medical vocabularies covering nearly 80 medical specialties and subspecialties. In order to bring billing in-house, the practice will utilize the WRS billing module to manage billing activities. This feature will give the practice a higher level of billing control, and will ensure that billing functions are completed timely and correctly. Lastly, First Internal Medicine expressed strong interest in the electronic prescribing capabilities of the WRS software. E-prescribing is more convenient for both providers and patients, since it provides more complete medication histories and reduces both pharmacy callbacks and time spent on renewals.
Through the use of the WRS software, First Internal Medicine will have the technological support needed to expand its practice. Furthermore, Waiting Room Solutions EMR and PM will prepare the practice to meet the “meaningful use” criteria as outlined by the Health and Human Services (HHS) and the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS). Meeting these requirements will allow the practice to be eligible for the American Reinvestment and Recovery Act (ARRA) stimulus package incentive program.
“First Internal Medicine is a young practice that smartly recognized the need for EMR and PM capabilities in order to grow,” said Lawrence Gordon, MD, founder and CEO of Waiting Room Solutions. “We look forward to working with this practice in the future as it streamlines office and clinical functions through our solutions.”
