MTBC, a leading national provider of electronic health records and practice and revenue cycle management solutions, today announced the launch of its OB/GYN EHR.
“Our specialized EHR templates and modules change the face of caregiving for OB/GYN providers by empowering them with an EHR that is, according to published usage statistics, among the most usable products in its class,” according to Stephen Snyder, MTBC’s president. “With its unique OB/GYN-focused templates, annotatable anatomic images, and seamless integration with our practice management system, business intelligence tools and revenue cycle management service, MTBC’s OB/GYN EHR will help providers reduce administrative expenses, increase revenues and streamline patient care.”
“The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 created rich governmental incentives – $44,000 to $66,750 over 5 years – for health care providers who acquire and demonstrate “meaningful use” of an EHR,” said Muhammad Chebli, Vice President of Information Technology. He further explained, “The term ‘meaningful use’ was coined by the Department of Health and Human Services to describe a provider’s true embrace and utilization of an EHR and the most recently released statistics for the first year of the incentive program show that MTBC’s users have become meaningful users at a higher and faster rate than those using other leading EHRs.”
Ease of EHR use is a particular concern for the OB/GYN community. Mr. Chebli explained, “The latest CMS data indicate that a relatively small percentage of OB/GYNs have achieved and attested for meaningful use, suggesting that there may be a significant usability gap among the existing OB/GYN EHR solutions. This EHR is a ‘game-changer’ for OB/GYN providers who are seeking a robust and fully integrated solution that is easy to learn and use,” said Mr. Chebli.
MTBC has continued to support to an increased number of specialty-specific EHRs. During the third quarter of 2012, MTBC plans to release a series of new specialized EHR modules and integrated solutions, with a particular focus on pediatric and psychiatry practices. These unique solutions will be offered at no additional cost to its PracticePro(TM) and ChartsPro(TM) clients and to providers who are associated with medical billing and practice management companies that are acquired as part of MTBC’s ongoing acquisition campaign.
