Waiting Room Solutions® (WRS), a leading web-based EHR and PM provider, announce that Pacifica Women’s Health Care has chosen to implement the 2011 Waiting Room Solutions Web Based Family Practice Electronic Health Record (EHR) and Practice Management System (PM) V4.0.
Pacifica Women’s Health Care, a long established clinic, has been located in California for the past twenty-five years. Dr. Michael Leb, lead Physician, wants to go paperless, transfer records and documents easily and access to data for every patient. In order to meet his goals, Dr. Leb has decided to implement the Waiting Room Solutions EHR and Practice Management System into their practice. Since the majority of Pacifica Women’s Health Care’s patients are on Medicaid, using WRS billing Module makes the headache of billing easier.
The 2011 Waiting Room Solutions Web Based EHR and Practice Management System V4.0 is 2011/2012 compliant and was certified as a Complete EHR on January 11, 2011 by the Certification Commission for Health Information Technology (CCHIT®). It is also a CCHIT Certified® 2011 Ambulatory EHR additionally certified for Child Health with a four star rating for usability. The 2011/2012 criteria support the Stage 1 meaningful use measures required to qualify eligible providers and hospitals for funding under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA). “The Medicare and Medicaid Incentives for EMR / EHR adoption offer an unparalleled opportunity for Eligible Providers to implement tools which can help improve healthcare quality and efficiency” said Dr. Lawrence Gordon, CEO of Waiting Room Solutions. “We are thrilled with the announcement, and as a result will provide an incentive of $1000 for all small practices that sign-up in the near future.”
Furthermore, the Waiting Room Solutions Family Care EHR and PM has been specifically designed to fulfill the needs of family care practices. For charting simplicity and accuracy, the system includes point-and-click specialty templates for history of present illness, review of systems, drug prescription, and more. The system also provides automated ICD/CPT coding, which ensures charting uniformity for recordkeeping and billing. Some of the features integrated into the software include lab interfaces with Quest, LabCorp. and others, ERx and medication management, EKG integration, standardized family care procedure notes and document management, and an order tracking system. In addition to these features, WRS provides integrated Medicare PQRI and electronic prescribing incentive reporting, which will enable the practice to receive additional Medicare incentive payments under the ARRA.
Through implementation of the Waiting Room Solutions EHR and PM, Pacifica Women’s Health Care will be able to reach its goals of reducing paperwork and increasing the fluidity of information transfer. Dr. Leb is confident that a large percentage of his patients will take advantage of the online patient portal and practice website, which will help forge a closer bond between patients and staff while also increasing efficiency. Through this portal, patients can register online, maintain their personal health record, schedule and confirm appointments, and more. Since patient health records are web-based, personal medical information can be securely accessed by both patients and physicians. Patients will also be able to use the portal to privately message with the office and their physician for appointment requests, billing questions, prescription refills, referral requests, and general questions. As a result of these features, the front desk will no longer have to process registration papers, copies of medical records, scheduling, and messages from patients, leading to a quicker transfer of information as well as a reduction in paperwork, faxes, phone messages and mail intake. Furthermore, the practice site will be customized with educational links relevant to the practice’s specialty, providing additional resources for patients. In all, this online presence will increase patient satisfaction and will strengthen the bond between patients and their physicians.
“Pacifica Women’s Health Care has expressed the need for a system that will reduce costs, enhance the safety and accuracy of the prescribing and diagnostic processes, improve practice efficiency overall, and the Waiting Room Solutions EHR and PM provides these services,” said Dr. Lawrence Gordon, founder and CEO of Waiting Room Solutions. “We are confident that our charting systems will allow the practice to achieve these goals.”
Pacifica Women’s Health Care had used another EMR software company before coming to Waiting Room Solution’s web based services. “Waiting Room Solution’s software seems to be the best fit for my needs” said Dr. Leb.
