Boardman, Ohio (PRWEB) June 27, 2006
Based in Valdosta, Ga., Valdosta Psychiatric Associates, LLC is a ten-provider group practice that serves a monthly average of 1,300 patients while adding 20 to 30 new patients every month. In March 2006, the group decided it was time to replace its old UNIX-based system with new practice management software. They selected MicroMD® from Microsys Computing, Inc. MicroMD is the top-rated software among all client/server systems in the 2005 “Top 20: Best in KLAS” annual rankings in the Ambulatory Billing & Scheduling category (for groups of 6 to 25 physicians).
Valdosta Psychiatric Associates reviewed four alternative solutions, including one Web-based system, which was ruled out because the group was not comfortable having their business operations dependent on the Internet, according to Jenny Kenyon, the practice’s business manager. “We were looking for a Windows-based, client/server system to establish the IT foundation for solid practice management today as well as future clinical applications, specifically an electronic medical record system sometime down the road,” she said. “With MicroMD, we got the right technology plus ease of use, better reporting and enhanced HIPAA compliance.”
The availability of local support from Automated Medical Systems, a Microsys value-added reseller, was another factor in the selection of MicroMD. “We signed our agreement for MicroMD in May, Automated Medical got the hardware configuration, software installation and training done in June, and we were up and running in three days,” said Kenyon.
