Goshen, NY (PRWEB) May 31, 2011
Waiting Room Solutions® (WRS) (http://www.waitingroomsolutions.com), a leading web-based EHR and PM provider, announced today that Lake Okeechobee ALF, LLC has chosen the 2011 Waiting Room Solutions Web Based Family Practice Electronic Health Record (EHR) and Practice Management System (PM) V4.0 for its family medical practice.
Lake Okeechobee ALF, LLC was founded in March of 2011 in N Palm Beach, FL. The practice specializes in Residential Post-Acute Neurological Programs which includes a NeuroRehab program, Neurobehavioral program, and assisted living. Through the implementation of the Waiting Room Solutions software, Lake Okeechobee ALF, LLC hopes to increase practice efficiency through a stronger integration of patient records, billing, lab results, and other office functions.
2011 Waiting Room Solutions Web Based EHR and Practice Management System V4.0 has earned its designation as a fully CCHIT Certified® 2011 Ambulatory EHR with an additional certification for Child Health and a four star rating for usability. The system received these certifications after undergoing testing to inspect the integrated functionality, interoperability, security and usability of the EHR. Furthermore, the Waiting Room Solutions EHR and PM prepare practices to meet the “meaningful use” criteria as outlined by the Health and Human Services (HHS) and the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS). Meeting these requirements will allow practices to be eligible to receive government incentives under the American Reinvestment and Recovery Act (ARRA).
The Waiting Room Solutions Family Practice EHR and PM has been specifically designed to maximize the efficiency of a family practice. To facilitate charting, the system provides specialty templates for chest pain, well/sick baby exams, comprehensive pediatric visits, abdominal pain, physical exams, immunizations, health screening, referral letters, and more. These point-and-click templates allow physicians to chart faster and reduce chart processing expenses. The system also offers automated ICD/CPT coding, increasing the uniformity and accuracy of medical records for physicians and insurers. Other features integrated into the software include lab interfaces with Quest, LabCorp. and others, ERx and medication management, EKG integration, standardized family practice procedure notes and document management, and an order tracking system.
The Waiting Room Solutions electronic charts also fulfill Youngs’s desire to view lab and x-ray results from the patient record without having to change programs. Labs are very important to the practice, which has a Clinical Laboratory Improvement Act (CLIA) waived lab and a draw station. Lab results are attained from Clinical Pathology Laboratories (CPL) within twenty-four hours, and off-site radiology results are also sent within the day. Through WRS this connection can be further enhanced by creating an electronic link between labs and patient medical records. The WRS Incoming and Outgoing Fax Queues are used to send and receive results, which are then automatically placed in the correct patient file where the physician can view them along with all previous records. This interface creates a more efficient system of exchange between laboratories, patients and providers.
“Lake Okeechobee ALF, LLC is a quickly growing practice which must serve a large number of scheduled patients, and our system will aid the practice in providing both efficient and high-quality care,” said Dr. Lawrence Gordon, founder and CEO of Waiting Room Solutions. “For example, the auto-eligibility feature allows the front desk to check insurance coverage instantly, which reduces the speed of processing new patients.”
