St. Petersburg, Florida, (PRWEB) June 22, 2005
ACOM EMR, the electronic medical records division of ACOM Solutions, Inc., has introduced its PainFree Installment Purchase Plan, a program that makes it simple and easy for chiropractic practices that want to participate in the trend towards paperless electronic processes to acquire and use ACOMÂs RAPID EMRÂ clinical e-documentation and office reporting solution, it was announced today by vice president Gregory T. Church.
Launched in 2004, RAPID EMR is now being used by chiropractic offices of all sizes to automate daily SOAP notes and reports and the generation and sharing of final reporting documents for employers, insurance companies, attorneys and others, Church said. The solution enables doctors to create notes using such on-board tools as intelligent checklists and graphic displays (e.g., musculature, spine), and to build final reports automatically from previous input and final notes.
ÂDoctors using the solution report that with its comprehensiveness and ease-of-use, RAPID EMR saves enormous amounts of dictation time, allows them to spend more time with more patients, and results in better and faster reimbursements with fewer disputed claims,Â Church said. ÂIt also supports their compliance measures and provides clear and concise outcome assessments that facilitate patient education and retention.Â
Under the program, ACOM installs all of the solution hardware and software and provides training, customer support and maintenance on the hardware and the software components. These include the RAPID EMR software, a tablet PC, an all-in-one office machine (printer, copier, fax, and scanner) and a wireless printer router for the tablet PC.
Monthly installment payments vary with the length of the contract and with the configuration of the solution, and besides the hardware and software components, they also cover maintenance, support, training and a service fee. Installments are automatically charged to the practitionerÂs American Express, MasterCard or Visa account, and ACOM issues a monthly receipt to the customer by secure email. A $250.00 installation and set-up fee includes two hours of phone training as well as consultative services using Webex. There is no prepayment penalty if doctors decide to purchase their solution before the end of their installment contract.
ÂThis program is available to all but it has been structured particularly around the needs of the beginning practitioner or the office that chooses to stay small and/or local with one or two professionals,Â Church said. ÂIt removes any reason that a chiropractic office of any size might have for denying itself a solution to the notes/reporting burden that has been typical to the field and historically a serious drain on financial resources and professional and personal time.Â
