Fort Lee, NJ, October 30, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- MaxMD and AZZLY™ announced that mdEmail® will be integrated into the AZZLY full-featured electronic health record, practice management and patient health record software. mdEmail is a secure, HIPAA-compliant email service from MaxMD.
The companies, which both provide software as a service (SaaS) utilizing cloud computing platforms, said that the mdEmail integration would be completed in time for AZZLY’s national launch later this year.
Scott Finlay, MaxMD’s CEO commented, “We are pleased to partner with AZZLY in providing real value to the user. Whether measured by improvements to electronic communications security, ease of use, productivity or reduced overhead costs, mdEmail improves on patient portal paradigm. We offer a secure transport layer operating over the .md top level domain. Our HIPAA secure communications tools allow users to work from any computer or smartphone and remain within the protection of our architecture.
AZZLY’s selection of mdEmail is capital efficient in providing a complete and compelling toolset to their end users. The implementation through our standard SDK requires little effort.
In addition to realizing significant savings in time and cost, practices using AZZLY EHR/PM/PHR and mdEmail will also be able to improve outcomes and patient satisfaction. These are the core objectives behind the push for greater use of information technology in providing and administering healthcare.”
Coletta Dorado, AZZLY President and CEO underlined the combined strengths by stating, “The AZZLY solution is all about efficiency, so physician practices can stay at 100% of patient capacity every day. We’re using the best innovative technology and attracting top-tier partners such as MaxMD that understand how an integrated, single-source solution reduces redundancy, prevents errors, saves time and money, and supports best practices.”
Ms. Dorado said utilizing mdEmail will permit AZZLY subscribers to initiate a secure email, including attachments, from within the AZZLY EHR/PM/PHR. “What providers and staff want is a solution that stops the daily flood of faxes. They are busy enough and waste time and money reviewing, signing, sorting, scanning, attaching and buying paper,” she said.
“Secure communications with patients and other providers is a major compliance concern but can also be a bottleneck on medical office workflow,” said Ms Dorado. “However, when mdEmail is integrated with the electronic health record, it facilitates workflow efficiency and also allows practices to reduce costs by eliminating the need to fax, mail, or courier paper-based communications. Like all of our integrated features and functions, mdEmail helps drive efficiency while also reducing significant costs. The end result is a vastly improved and much less expensive provider and patient experience, she stated.”
“AZZLY products provide a fully integrated, subscription-based online solution that gives providers affordable access to all the practice management and EHR capabilities needed to support a busy medical practice,” Ms. Dorado said. “The integration of mdEmail with the AZZLY EHR/PM/PHR solution makes the healthcare industry’s most advanced communications platform accessible to our users within their existing clinical workflow in a very user-friendly format.” Eligible Providers using the AZZLY solution with mdEmail can meet HIPAA compliance and ARRA/HITECH “Meaningful Use” criteria for the sharing of Patient Health Information and to qualify for government incentive payments,” she said.
