Boulder, CO (PRWEB) September 6, 2009
MD-IT, the nation's leading provider of medical documentation to ambulatory clinics and physician offices, announced today that it has acquired Superscript Transcription, Inc. of Grand Rapids, MI. Superscript clients now have access to MD-IT's advanced software and service which helps physicians document patient encounters accurately and quickly. Superscript co-owner Jane White will join MD-IT as an associate director.
"We are excited to become part of a company that offers more than what the EMR vendors are selling," said White. "We can now take the next step technologically-speaking, and offer our clients electronic notes that can be accessed, distributed and shared electronically, all while allowing physicians the freedom to create patient notes as they choose."
"We are pleased that Jane White and her team have joined the MD-IT family," said MD-IT president and CEO Tom Carson. "Superscript has an outstanding reputation for quality and attention to detail. Their current clients are going to thrive with the introduction of MD-IT software and service that helps preserve quality of patient care and streamlines workflows."
Along with the technological advantages that MD-IT provides, White sees the upcoming HIPAA revisions as another barrier she won't have to cross.
"The new regulations will make it harder for smaller companies to stay compliant," said White.
"Smaller offices, no matter how successful, are going to have a hard time meeting the more stringent HIPAA requirements by the February 2010 deadline," said Carson. "With our resources and secure web-based platform, companies like Superscript can focus on the core mission of helping physician groups transition to meaningful use of electronic medical records (EMRs)."
MD IT is the largest medical documentation company serving physician offices and ambulatory clinics nationwide, a market estimated at $7 billion of the $10 billion spent annually in the US. Hospitals account for the remaining $3 billion. MD-IT enables physicians to spend more time with patients and family, and less time on the paperwork required to document patient visits.
MD-IT provides medical documentation services and software to over 7,000 physicians and clinicians in over 900 medical practices and hospitals throughout the United States. The company combines the benefits of local office ownership with the resources of a national company to offer personalized service supported by leading technology. The privately-held company is located in Boulder, CO, with regional offices in Colorado, Florida, Kentucky, Maine, Maryland, Michigan, Minneapolis, Oregon, Texas and Washington.
