Nashville, TN (PRWEB) May 28, 2014

Entrada has announced OrthoAtlanta as its most recent addition to its client testimonial video series. OrthoAtlanta, an orthopaedic group with eight locations throughout the Atlanta area, was looking to improve the documentation workflow for its providers with a mobile dictation solution that would integrate well with its current electronic health record system (EHR).

Dr. Peter Symbas, Orthopaedic Surgeon at OrthoAtlanta, noted, “My office seemed to struggle with adequate and efficient documentation, and Entrada has helped me work through these issues by enabling me to be more mobile. My notes have become much more detailed after I started using the (Entrada) app. Entrada has helped me become more efficient, see more patients, and it’s helped me spend more time with my patients.”

The administration at OrthoAtlanta was also looking for innovative ways to execute their Meaningful Use (MU) strategy without unnecessary burdens on the physicians and staff. Since Entrada delivers narrative directly back into the encounter template fields as searchable text (and not simply attached to the encounter), OrthoAtlanta positioned itself to achieve compliance for electronically created and signed progress notes. Also, with Entrada’s quick turnaround, the medical records staff has been able to comply with the MU2 goal for distributing clinical summaries to patients via the patient portal within 24 hours.

“Entrada has helped us a lot with a particular measure meeting Meaningful Use,” stated Kitchi Joyce, Director of Practice Informatics at OrthoAtlanta. “Patient encounters need to be pushed into the patient portal within 24 hours. The quick turnaround with Entrada has made things easier to meet Meaningful Use.”

The providers at OrthoAtlanta use Entrada’s mobile documentation solution to dictate quality notes, freeing up their time to see more patients while also ensuring they leave the office on time. OrthoAtlanta credits Entrada’s mobile solution with streamlining the providers’ workflow, ultimately enabling providers and staff to both close encounters and schedule surgeries at a faster rate.
