Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) April 15, 2010
simplifyMD, a company that specializes in improving physician income, reducing work hours and streamlining operations, today announced that the Woodson Center for Adult Healthcare, located in Chicago Heights, Illinois has released the results of their Digital Chart Room™ implementation.
Founded in 2001, the Woodson Center for Adult Healthcare was established by Dr. Cheryl Woodson, who is Board Certified in Internal Medicine and Geriatrics. Dr. Woodson wanted to be proactively prepared to comply with meaningful use guidelines of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA) but didn't want to spend thousands of dollars on a solution to meet rules that were not set in stone. Also, as a geriatrician, Dr. Woodson was spending a lot of time on paperwork, especially due to Medicare, so she wanted a solution that made it possible for her and her staff to maintain the integrity of her charts.
“I knew I needed to go paperless to keep my practice viable, and the simplifyMD system was not only much more affordable than other similar options but also very easy to use,” remarked Dr. Woodson, Director of the Woodson Center. "In addition to helping me cut approximately $70,000 in overhead over 18 months, simplifyMD has had a positive impact on my quality of life. I can sign charts and do labs from my home without drowning in paperwork, and now my office staff and I can access a chart at the same time."
Another benefit simplifyMD provided for the Woodson Center was the ability to downsize from three full time and one part time staff members to only one full time employee by not having to replace those positions as certain staff members left her practice. Plus, the simplifyMD system allows Dr. Woodson to keep up with ARRA guidelines and have the related updates made at no cost.
“Dr. Woodson provides amazing, specialized care to her patients, and our system lets her focus more on those patients and less on paperwork,” stated Matt Ethington, President of simplifyMD. "We're pleased that we can provide the Woodson Center with the kind of solution they need on an affordable, pay as you go basis."
