Waiting Room Solutions® (WRS) a leading web-based EHR and PM provider, announced today that Roberto C. Mendoza, MD has chosen Waiting Room Solutions Pediatrics Electronic Health Record (EHR) and Practice Management System (PM) for its pediatric practice.
Roberto C. Mendoza, MD has operated in Kenner, LA for over twenty-five years and has over forty-five years of clinical experience. There are no appointments for this busy walk-in clinic, which is a participant in the CommunityCARE and KIDMED programs. CommunityCARE connects Louisiana Medicaid enrollees to a Primary Care Provider to ensure that they are given proper medical coverage at all times. KIDMED is part of the Louisiana’s Early Periodic Screening, Diagnosis and Treatment (EPSDT) Program, which provides Medicaid-eligible children under the age of 21 with preventive health screening, diagnosis, and treatment services. In the past the practice used another solution for its PM services along with paper patient charts; WRS will encompass all of these previous methods into its fully-integrated software, offering consolidation of all office functions into a single web-based solution.
The Waiting Room Solutions Pediatrics EHR and PM offers solutions for laboratory integration, seamless charting, medication management, patient communication, scheduling and much more. Some of the specific features include pediatric forms, templates and comprehensive clinical content for quick charting, vaccination management, inventory management, ERx and drug interaction crosschecks, patient portal, automated phone and email appointment reminders, EKG, PFT and laboratory device interfaces, and an order tracking system. In addition to these features the software is also compatible with the WRS Healthcare Pen Solution, which provides physicians with the benefits of an EMR while maintaining the ease of traditional paper charting.
Through the use of the Waiting Room Solutions PM and EHR for Pediatrics, Roberto C. Mendoza, MD will seamlessly transition from paper charting and multiple management systems to one web-based system. The WRS software is unique because it allows practice information to be accessible from any location with an internet connection. The practice aims to ease the shift from paper to electronic charting with the help of the WRS Healthcare Pen technology. The pen can be used to take providers’ traditional written notes and automatically convert them to electronic medical records. The practice aims to use this system exclusively until the physicians are comfortable inserting data directly into the computer with a keyboard, at which point both entry methods will be used.
Lastly, the WRS auto-eligibility clearinghouse feature will be especially relevant to Dr. Mendoza due to the walk-in nature of his practice; this system can assess insurance coverage and co-pay requirements instantly for unscheduled patients, facilitating the claims process. Aside from all of the improvements offered by this software, Waiting Room Solutions EHR and PM prepares the practice 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 the practice to be eligible for the American Reinvestment and Recovery Act (ARRA) stimulus package incentive program.
“We are glad that Dr. Mendoza has chosen to update his practice with the use of Waiting Room Solutions EHR and PM,” said Lawrence Gordon, MD, founder and CEO of Waiting Room Solutions. “We are confident that our product will satisfy the needs of his practice and will lead to more efficient operations and enhanced patient care.”
