Great Neck, NY, March 11, 2011 --(PR.com
)-- Interest continues to grow over electronic healthcare record software systems from Universal EHR Solutions (UniEHR). Mitchell C. Shapiro, president and chairman of UniEHR says attendees at the annual Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS) conference in Orlando, FL showed a high amount of interest in the company’s line of EHR solutions.
“We signed up more than 600 people for our social networking sites and talked to several hundred more,” says Shapiro. “My overall impression was that many are dissatisfied with the reputations and performance of other EMR systems. They seem to be viewed as expensive, inflexible, and not user friendly. We have had scores of follow-up calls from industry participants who were surprised at what they saw and want to see and hear more about Physician’s Solution®.”
Aaron Wachspress, company founder and chief technology officer, says that UniEHR’s collection of software solutions was Designed FOR Doctors BY Doctors® to avoid problems encountered in expensive systems from other companies and the horror stories told by early adopters that have put all EMR companies in an uphill battle when talking to skeptical physicians. “We offer an intuitive, user friendly, fully customizable, fully certified EHR system with many advanced features at an affordable, all inclusive price that will avoid the highest real cost of implementing an EMR system; the productivity and revenue that doctors lose when deploying many of our competitors’ systems,” says Wachspress.
UniEHR’s Physician’s Solution®, Physician’s Portal® message and data sharing, Patient Direct®, Doctor Direct®, and MedRecordsAlert® products provide physicians and medical practices with an affordable method to collect, digitize, store and distribute essential medical information. Hospital’s Solution® is a three-in-one package that satisfies a hospital’s need for control of all components of a complex, multi-layered healthcare enterprise.
“We have a sophisticated system, yet it’s easy to use for managing healthcare information,” adds Shapiro. “Ease of use and customization were clearly attractive features for those who watched our demonstrations at HIMMS11. Most physicians operate in small practices rather than large healthcare networks. We heard a clear message that they need a flexible and user friendly EHR product, and that’s what we deliver.”
Wachspress emphasized that UniEHR products can be customized for each customer, such as Dr. Eric Steinberg, who has been using UniEHR in his cardiology practice since 2007 and developed new templates to fit his individual needs. “I had some new ideas and I’m able to change things and address things quickly,” Dr. Steinberg says. “I had been in another type of EMR, and UniEHR was able to transfer over a million pages from the old system, which was unbelievable.”
Shapiro points out that UniEHR products are currently used by many specialists. “We have modules that fit the unique needs of more than a dozen different practice types, including OB/GYN, cardiology, pediatrics, and internal medicine,” he says. “Clients can choose from templates designed by practitioners in their own specialty and we can then customize them to meet their own work flow and medical charts. Our software works wonderfully for both small and large practices (including large multi-specialty practices) who want the EMR system to replicate their current work flow and charts. ”
Using browser-based software that requires no third-party software, UniEHR products support smartphones and other portable computing technology to allow doctors and patients to access their health records from anywhere there is an internet connection, using secure passwords. Physician’s Solution is a turnkey solution or interfaces with a practice’s existing practice management/billing system, as well as hospitals, laboratories, radiologists, diagnostic machines and referring physicians.
The company’s core product, Physician’s Solution, was one of the first to be fully certified as a Complete EHR for the federal HITECH Economic Stimulus Package/ARRA incentives that will provide up to $63,500 per physician and up to $2 million per hospital. “That will far exceed the cost of purchasing, installing, deploying, and maintaining a customized UniEHR system,” adds Shapiro.
