(PRWEB) March 30, 2005
Physician Micro Systems, Inc. (PMSI), the creator of Practice Partner electronic health records (EHR), practice management, and computerized physician order entry (CPOE) software, and Primetime Medical Software, Inc., maker of the Instant Medical History patient interview application, today announced that they have integrated Instant Medical History with Practice Partner Patient Records.
Using Instant Medical History, a patient can enter his or her complete present illness, review of systems, and medical history information prior to the patient visit Â either over the web or using a waiting room kiosk. Instant Medical History summarizes this information and automatically begins a progress note in the patient chart in Practice Partner Patient Records. The physician can then open the patientÂs electronic health record, review the patient-entered information, and complete the documentation for the encounter.
By enabling the direct flow of patient-entered information into the electronic health record, the integration of Instant Medical History with Practice Partner will help to reduce clinician data entry, provide more accurate documentation, and improve the focus and efficiency of the patient encounter.
ÂInstant Medical History offers Practice Partner customers a tool to improve the clinical documentation process and facilitate better physician-patient communication. This partnership furthers our mission to help physicians improve productivity and quality of care,Â said Andrew Ury, M.D., founder and president of PMSI.
"Practice Partner customers have long seen PMSI as a leading provider of EHR technology," said Matthew Ferrante, CEO, Primetime Medical Software. "We are delighted to extend our technology to this group of innovative physicians."
