Port Charlotte, FL (PRWEB) May 4, 2006
MedicalCharting.com, a leading reseller of electronic medical record software (EMR software), announced a complete redesign of the popular Charting Plus program, used by over 3,400 medical practices in the United States and Canada, would go on the market today. The new electronic medical record software, MediNotes e, includes several powerful upgrades.
"This program is such a marked change from the Charting Plus electronic medical record software that we felt it was necessary to sunset that name and begin a brand new campaign focused on our future as a company," said Harry Selent, CEO and President of MedicalCharting.com. "The ‘e’ in MediNotes e stands for everything that is important to our clients: efficiency, ease of use, empowerment, and enhanced care."
The upgrade includes a major reworking of the original Charting Plus electronic medical record software structure, as well as several new features. MediNotes e is now a multi-tasking shell with the ability to launch multiple components as tabbed screens within the shell. The electronic medical record software can display the Practice view, the Patient view for several patients, an Active Note window, and the Document view simultaneously. Care providers and staff can quickly toggle between patients or tasks without the need to navigate to a completely separate area of the program, saving them valuable time and allowing unprecedented access to clinical information.
The newest features of the electronic medical record software include:
- a patient tracker, allowing front office staff to monitor patients who have been checked in, how long they’ve waited, and which room they have been assigned to
- customizable worklists, for situations when a series of ordered events involving multiple clinicians is necessary
- MediNotes Rx, an ePrescribing tool built right into the prescription dialogs used in MediNotes e that includes drug to drug and drug to allergy interactions, formulary checking, and full ePrescribing capabilities through SureScripts and RxHub
"We're seeing the same evolution now with electronic medical record software we were seeing in the 1990s when voice dictation was first getting off the ground in the medical field," said Selent. "The quality of patient care is increasing as information is current, readily and instantly accessible by the medical care team, and organized and legible for all to read. This translates into increased quality of care for patients of doctors using electronic medical record software."
Dr. Blum of North Carolina, who has used MediNotes e and Charting Plus electronic medical record software for a number of years, said, "Before going electronic our staff would stay over for 45 minutes at the end of the day for filing. We are now saving 10 hours a week on filing charts. And the staff can devote their time to better patient care instead of ‘paper care.’ They get to go home on time, and we are saving the cost of overtime."
