Waiting Room Solutions® (WRS), a leading web-based EHR and PM provider, announced today that Eung Ryong Choi, MD has chosen the 2011 Waiting Room Solutions Web Based Practice Management System (PM) V4.0 for implementation.
Eung Ryong Choi, MD was established twenty-three years ago in Havertown, Pennsylvania. Dr. Choi is the practice’s sole physician, and he specializes in pediatrics. The practice sees both sick and well appointments and operates for approximately twenty-four hours per week, during which there is a high volume of patients. The practice has not used any EHR or PM in the past, and wishes to improve workflow through the implementation of a practice management system. Dr. Choi particularly likes that the Waiting Room Solutions system uses HCFA format to enter claims information, a format with which he is familiar.
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. Additionally, the Waiting Room Solutions EHR and PM prepares 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).
Furthermore, 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. There are also more pediatric-specific features integrated into the software, such as immunization/health maintenance reminders and tracking, well child exams, electronic growth charts, a pediatric dosage calculator, and pediatric education. This complete set of features provides all of the resources necessary to successfully operate a pediatrics practice.
Through the implementation of the Waiting Room Solutions Practice Management System, Eung Ryong Choi, MD will be able to streamline office functions from scheduling to billing. To ease the scheduling workload, the WRS software features an automatic appointment reminder system. The practice currently confirms appointments only when time permits, but with this technology employee time does not have to be allocated; the computer sends an automated phone message and email to the patient confirming an appointment both when the appointment is made and again twenty-four hours before the encounter. These confirmations reduce the number of missed appointments and increase the level of communication between patients and the practice.
The WRS Practice Management System will also smooth communication between different office functions, ensuring that the revenue cycle is completed timely and correctly. The WRS Billing Module is integrated into the practice management system and as a result fulfills the practice’s goal of reducing the time spent on claims, billing and accounts receivables. The module automatically receives charges, cross checks them to payer rules, and enters them for claim submission without dual entry by staff. The system also provides electronic patient statements, which automatically posts payments to a queue for viewing, and claim scrubbers, which reduce errors on claims in order to speed processing.
“We are glad that Eung Ryong Choi, MD has chosen to implement the Waiting Room Solutions Practice Management System,” said Dr. Lawrence Gordon, founder and CEO of Waiting Room Solutions. “We look forward to working with the practice to ensure that all of their goals for improved efficiency are met.”
