Alpharetta, GA (PRWEB) June 11, 2013
simplifyMD, an ONC-ATCB certified Electronic Health Record (EHR) and Practice Management (PM) software company, announced today the addition of Alpharetta-based King’s Ridge Christian School as the first student health clinic to implement the cloud-based EHR software. simplifyMD’s EHR solution will assist the school’s clinic in streamlining workflow processes while enhancing patient confidentiality and internal and external communication efforts.
King’s Ridge, a non-denominational Christian school instructing grades Pre-K through 12, serves approximately 35-40 of its 760 students in its clinic on any given day. With one school nurse and one assistant to examine students, review paper medical records and student health forms, and communicate with parents in a timely manner, the school was seeking an electronic solution that would revamp its clinic’s paper-based workflow into a more efficient and confidential process.
“The unpredictable nature of our clinic made paper processes extremely time-intensive,” said Dawn Weber, School Nurse at Kings Ridge Christian School. “simplifyMD’s HIPAA-compliant solution allows us to easily and quickly find records and input data through drop-down menus and click-throughs that are customized for our needs. This enables us to really focus on patient care. Additionally, simplifyMD has our system set up for faxes to come straight to the clinic’s computer, which is important to ensure patient confidentiality. And, simplifyMD’s customer service was always readily available. I haven’t even had to use the training manual.”
In addition to streamlining administrative and clinical workflow, simplifyMD offers parental guardians the benefit of access to their child’s school health record online, creating more efficient processes to obtain completed student health forms and coordinate necessary information for field trips and extra-curricular activities. Furthermore, simplifyMD’s built-in messaging capabilities enable the school clinic to quickly send updates to parents regarding any medical issues or administered medications that have occurred throughout the day, enhancing patient care along the continuum.
“With the increasing responsibilities and liabilities a school clinic has in the health and wellness of its student population, the efficiency and accuracy of documentation processes and communications is key.” said Michael Brozino, CEO. “We’re pleased that simplifyMD was able to offer Kings Ridge Christian School a secure, customized solution that meets the needs for the school’s clinic and administrative staff as well as those of the students and their parents.”
