20/20 Imaging Introduces New EHR Specifically for Podiatry Market

Meaningful Use-Certified EHR, Combined With the Company's Digital Imaging Solutions, Enables Practices to Readily Meet Looming ARRA Deadlines

GARNER, NC--(Marketwired - Jun 18, 2013) - 20/20 Imaging, a leader in health IT, digital imaging, PACS and electronic health record (EHR) solutions, introduces the PodPractice EHR, the first fully digitally-integrated, end-to-end EHR solution designed specifically for podiatric practices. October 3, 2013 is the last day for eligible providers to begin their 90-day reporting period and still be able to attest for Meaningful Use for calendar year 2013 under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA). The immediate availability of the new PodPractice EHR now provides podiatric practices with the ideal solution -- the ability to not only go filmless with 20/20 digital imaging systems, but paperless as well. It arrives on the heels of a recent survey reported by the Annals of Internal Medicine journal, which indicated less than ten percent of doctors having utilized electronic records in the last year.

"With Meaningful Use deadlines fast-approaching, podiatry practices that have not yet adopted digital technologies must act now to implement certified systems and receive the maximum incentive dollars available. Successful 2013 adopters are eligible for up to $39,000, in comparison to the sharp drop to just $24,000 for those who successfully adopt in 2014," explained Bob Salzman, president, 20/20 Imaging. "The PodPractice EHR is meaningful use-certified and compliant with ICD-10, allowing podiatric practices to have a reliable system with the right tools to help them stay in step with regulatory mandates. It also assures efficient practice operations and the delivery of the best care as it was designed specifically for podiatry."

The PodPractice EHR was built specifically with the podiatry practice in mind, and offers a wealth of podiatry-specific content straight out of the box. The EHR solution comes packaged with a fully customizable, state-of-the-art template reporting system loaded with content designed specifically for podiatric practices to eliminate redundancy, simplify and accelerate data entry from patient charts, through the enabling of macro word selection and embedding of database merging fields.

Additionally, it was also built on an extremely reliable and easily accessible platform.
While most platforms are server- or cloud-based, the PodPractice EHR is the first solution to provide a cloud option to accompany a server-based system, allowing practices the convenience of anywhere-web access.

Additional features and benefits include:

  • appointment scheduling
  • radiology orders and results
  • laboratory orders
  • electronic prescriptions
  • billing
  • fully integrated HL7 engine
  • ONC-ATCB Complete Ambulatory EHR Certification

"Developed and backed by experts who have been in the podiatry space for years, the PodPractice EHR could not be more tailor-made for the podiatry market," said Salzman. "Meaningful use incentives aside, practices will further benefit from the advantages of having a single vendor for all their needs. With the introduction of the EHR system, 20/20 Imaging provides a one-stop shop for all podiatry IT needs, enabling a filmless and paperless workflow to successfully and efficiently deliver high quality care."

In addition to the PodPractice EHR, 20/20 Imaging's podiatry solutions include the P-DR HG+ Complete and P-DR HG+ Retrofit digital x-ray systems, as well as the 20/20 CR II scanner system.
