Amerinet Signs Agreement with All Medical Solutions for AMS SPHER HIPAA Compliance Solution
All Medical Solutions (AMS), the Healthcare division of Fusion Systems North America, announced today Amerinet®, Inc., a leading national healthcare solutions organization, has signed a new agreement that will make the AMS SPHER(TM) HIPAA Compliance Solution available to its members.
SPHER is a cloud-based audit log review and breach detection solution that not only audits electronic health records (EHRs) and detects breaches, but it actually learns the habits of each person in the healthcare organization. The pattern recognition system is what makes SPHER unique. It learns the routine of each individual in the practice and when something out of the ordinary is done, SPHER calls out that action via an alert email to the privacy/security officer of the healthcare organization. Available nationwide, SPHER benefits the following Amerinet Members: clinics, hospitals, integrated delivery networks, long term and extended care facilities, physician practices, and surgery centers.
“Our goal is to ensure that all Amerinet members are HIPAA security compliant. And by choosing our SPHER solution, they will be” said AMS Partner Andrew Kan. “We are proud to work with Amerinet and look forward to providing their members the SPHER audit log review and breach detection solution.”
Hello Health and CollaborateMD to Offer First No-Cost, Combined EHR and Medical Billing Solution
Hello Health® and CollaborateMD have announced the integration of Hello Health’s no-cost electronic health record (EHR) and patient portal with CollaborateMD’s affordable medical billing and practice management system. The partnership marries Hello Health’s one-of-a-kind business model with CollaborateMD’s robust claim management functionality, for an easy-to-use, complete solution that is free and well-suited for small- to medium-sized independent medical practices.
“Sophisticated, intuitive health information technology should not be cost-prohibitive, and by offering a full-featured, clinical and practice management solution for free, we have taken a major step to help that cause,” said Nathanial Findlay, founder and chief executive officer of Myca® Health, parent company of Hello Health.
The Hello Health EHR includes a comprehensive patient portal that enables providers to track and bill for telemedicine functionality. Patients pay a small monthly subscription for secure access to the portal, and the practice keeps a portion of that subscription revenue. Per terms of the partnership, CollaborateMD clients will be able to subtract their monthly license fee from the revenue generated by Hello Health.
“We’re pleased to have a partner that shares our philosophy that running a medical practice should be simpler,” said Douglas Kegler, founder and chief executive officer of CollaborateMD. “Our combined solution will help joint clients be compensated fully and expediently for the care they provide – and they won’t have to incur any health information technology costs associated with the resulting revenue cycle improvements.”
