Charlotte, NC (PRWEB) October 25, 2006
IQMax, Inc., a Charlotte, NC-based healthcare-focused software company that provides mobile solutions to hospitals, clinics and healthcare providers, is pleased to announce that Horizon Eye Care, located in Charlotte, NC, has selected IQMax's IQSpeak® mobile dictation application to enhance its medical staff's ability to capture their dictated patient encounters easily while providing patient demographics via mobile devices.
Horizon Eye Care has been a leader in the Charlotte-metro area for decades and provides both routine eye care as well as medical and surgical eye services through its six clinical locations in the Charlotte community. Horizon physicians have been performing corneal refractive surgery since 1985. Horizon Eye Care was the first Charlotte practice to perform LASIK surgery in 1997 and is the official eye care provider to the Carolina Panthers, Charlotte Checkers and Charlotte Knights.
Doctors at Horizon have been using IQSpeak® for just a few months, but are already seeing significant results. IQSpeak® allows physicians to access patient demographic information on their mobile devices, dictate patient encounters anytime, anywhere at a time and place that is convenient for the physician and enhances physician workflow efficiency. "IQMax's product has revolutionized the entire process of transcription in my practice. At a glance, I can see my schedule of patients on my PDA and know whether or not I have dictated a letter back to the referring doctor. Additionally, the way that IQMax captures the patient demographic information from Horizon's practice management system makes the downstream process more efficient for my staff members," says Rick Weidman, MD, a Retina Specialist at Horizon. Rodney Roeser, the CEO of Horizon Eye Care, adds "Horizon Eye Care's partnership with IQMax has allowed Horizon's doctors to provide more timely communication back to the referring doctors at a more cost effective price to Horizon. The mobile nature of IQMax's product has allowed our doctors greater flexibility in terms of when, where and how they complete their dictations. This has been a win-win partnership for both parties involved."
