Boardman, OH (PRWEB) January 5, 2006
January 5, 2006 -- MEDIA ALERT: Microsys Computing, Inc., developer of MicroMD®, the award-winning practice management software used by more than 1,800 physician groups across the U.S., will demonstrate its MicroMD® Xpres Suite at the HIMSS Annual Conference & Exhibition, February 12-16, 2006, San Diego Convention Center, Booth #1946. MicroMD is the top-rated client-server practice management system in the “Top 20: Best in KLAS” rankings for 2005, in the Ambulatory Billing & Scheduling category (for groups of 6-25 physicians).
The components of the MicroMD Xpres Suite:
- MicroMD PocketXpres™ offers essential features of MicroMD on any Pocket PC device compatible with Windows® Mobile 2003 (or higher);
- MicroMD TabletXpres™ is a full-function, portable MicroMD solution for Tablet PCs that is ideal for use anytime, anywhere with Wi-Fi connectivity; and
- MicroMD PatientXpres™ gives patients real-time, secure and controlled access to their health information.
With the Xpres Suite, physicians who use MicroMD in their offices can securely input and obtain information from anywhere served by a Wi-Fi network and thereby increase their productivity. In addition, today’s patients are more engaged in their care and want convenient access to health information. Enabling them to securely access their own information with MicroMD PatientXpres improves patient satisfaction and increases patient loyalty. That gives physician group practices a decided competitive advantage.
“After using MicroMD for five years and beta testing TabletXpres, we decided to deploy it for all five of our physicians,” said Glenn J. Trippe, M.D., New Beginnings Pediatrics, Norwalk, Ohio. “Now, when I’m on hospital rounds, I can post charges immediately, and when I discharge a patient, I can schedule their follow-up office appointment right then and there, and that significantly improves patient service.”
“Our practice is centered around connecting with families throughout the Hudson Valley, and MicroMD provides tools that will help us to leverage today’s technology to do so,” said Joseph F. Heavey, chief executive officer, The Children’s Medical Group, PLLC, a pediatric group practice with 21 physicians in Poughkeepsie, N.Y. “MicroMD PatientXpres offers advanced connectivity that allows our patients to communicate with our office and obtain information 24 hours a day.”
Editorial appointments with Microsys Computing at HIMSS are available for members of the media upon request. For assistance, kindly contact David Aquilina, 612.922.5551.
