Hauppauge, NY (PRWEB) November 6, 2004
ZyDoc, a technology leader in automated medical documentation solutions, announced that it has been selected by the AMA as a showcase exhibitor for the AMA Technology Summit Conferences.
According to the AMA, ÂPhysicians in practice today are compelled to implement electronic medical records to improve clinical quality, enhance efficiencies, and augment financial performance in their practices. However, discerning what vendor and system to purchase based on the unique objectives of the practice can be overwhelming given the many choices available. In some instances, making the right selection can be career defining. The investment and risk are both substantially high, and success with EMR can be challenging and time consuming.Â
Jim Maisel, M.D., Chairman of ZyDoc explains, ÂZyDoc is delighted to have our unique, award winning EMR solutions recognized by the AMA. ZyDoc has over ten years of experience in working with physicians desiring to document their medical encounters quickly and efficiently. ZyDoc offers low risk, high productivity solutions focused on dictation for data capture involving no change in work habits, infrastructure costs or training. Our web-based TrackDoc system offers substantial advantages to physicians over EMR alternatives and can be implemented in one day. These solutions are applicable for 100% of physicians and require no IT experience or internal support. ZyDoc solutions seem like a transcription service on the front end and have all the advantages of the EMR for electronic chart management. The system is suitable for a single practitioner, multisite offices, ASUs and hospitals and is scalable to a Community Health Information Network. Documents can be accessed for improved efficiency with coding and billing. The high quality medical records are easily shared with other providers and will ultimately result in improved healthcare outcomes, especially in ambulatory environments involving multiple providers for complicated cases.Â
Steve Koski, CEO and President of ZyDoc further clarifies, "The ZyDoc technology platform offers a number of advantages to healthcare providers over traditional documentation solutions and EMR in terms of ease of implementation, operations, total costs, quality, speed of care, and disaster recovery. The solutions require no software installation, or IT personnel, and are compatible with all PCs and operating systems with Internet browser capability. There is no training involved or complicated software to customize or learn. Doctors can start dictating immediately after enrollment with no change in work habits using 800 toll free dialup or digital handheld recorders. Documents are always available on the Internet with HIPAA secure connections, and can be reviewed and signed remotely. The documents can also be automatically downloaded and printed to a PC, faxed or made available to share with authorized caregivers over the Internet. The ZyDoc carrier class datacenter has proven reliable without failure over the past year and was operational even during the Northeast blackout.Â
On July 21, 2004 The United States Department of Health and Human Services outlined its 10-year plan to build a national electronic health information infrastructure. The American Medical Association along with 13 other medical organizations representing over 500,000 physicians then announced the formation of the Physicians' Electronic Health Record Coalition (PEHRC) to help improve the quality, safety and efficiency of health care by facilitating adoption of affordable, standards based electronic health records (EHR) and other health information technology. The AMA is striving to provide physicians with an extensive help in the selection and use EMR technology to produce optimal success in their medical practice.
The first AMA Technology Summit on Selecting and Implementing the Right EMR technology conference will be held in Philadelphia on November 12, 2004 at the Hilton Hotel, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Physicians can register at 800-621-8335 or enroll at the AMA website at https://catalog.ama-assn.org
