AdvancedMD EHR 2011 Summer Release Delivers Powerful Package of Integrated Cloud Features to Help Medical Providers Capture Stimulus Dollars

Certified by an ONC-ATCB, New Release Yields Simplified, Automated Meaningful Use Reporting, Enhanced Patient Portal Access

SALT LAKE CITY, UT--(Marketwire - Jul 19, 2011) - ADP® AdvancedMD, a leader in cloud electronic health record (EHR), practice management, medical scheduling software, and billing applications for medical practices and medical billing services, today announced the availability of the AdvancedMD EHR 2011 Summer release, recently certified as a 2011/2012 Complete EHR by the Certification Commission for Health Information Technology (CCHIT®), an ONC-Authorized Testing and Certification Body (ONC-ATCB).

AdvancedMD EHR 2011 Summer release includes significant feature enhancements that streamline meaningful use compliance and simplify a patient's ability to interact securely online with healthcare providers. Early-release users of the software have noted the cost and time savings afforded by the ADP AdvancedMD cloud platform, which delivers new meaningful use compliance at a glance, clinical reporting, an online Patient Portal, group messaging and "break the glass" emergency features without requiring additional software upgrades or costs.

"This release of our software provides physician practices with additional freedom to focus on improved quality of care rather than regulations and compliance," said Raul Villar, president, ADP AdvancedMD. "New advanced features take both the worry and hassle out of demonstrating meaningful use, and help ensure maximum return on dollars invested in healthcare technology not just today but as the requirements evolve toward phase II and phase III in 2013 and 2015, respectively. Because of our cloud platform, our clients will not need to worry about license upgrades and new installations to keep up with future regulatory change."

AdvancedMD EHR 2011 Summer release moves beyond the minimum requirements for a Complete EHR certification with integrated features that help optimize the medical practice -- including EHR, practice management, and medical billing. With the recent acquisition of AdvancedMD by ADP, clients are assured of world-class systems and support for all their automation needs.

"Our EHR, practice management, and billing solution, delivered through a cloud platform, provides customers with unprecedented opportunities to simultaneously reduce technology costs and boost practice efficiency," said Steven ZoBell, vice president of product development, ADP AdvancedMD. "This release highlights the powerful benefits of having a unified application with one database and one login, allowing us to provide advanced features and reporting mechanisms not previously available on the market."

New features in this release include:

  • Enhanced Patient Portal - allows patients to take a greater role in their own healthcare through secure, convenient web access to their records, scheduling, medications and billing transactions. Integration between EHR, PM and billing systems provides a seamless, efficient interface.
  • Enhanced Meaningful Use Clinical Reporting - simplified and automated reporting of core Set and Menu, PQRI and Continuity of Care Documents (CCDs). At-a-glance status of meaningful use to track successful compliance.

"The new ADP AdvancedMD software release allows me to demonstrate meaningful use compliance and become eligible to receive financial incentives," said Dr. Pedro J. Morales, provider at Pedro J. Morales M.D. & Tim P. Carlson M.D., a Saint Petersburg, Florida family practice. "The integrated practice management and EHR have helped streamline our transition from paper to electronic with little to no down time, allowing us to implement the system in increments and scale at our own pace."
