AdvancedMD to Introduce Integrated Patient & Physician Workflow to Help Independent Practices Compete with Hospitals, Large Health Systems

Will also showcase integrated PM, EHR & telemedicine at MGMA 2016

SOUTH JORDAN, UT--(Marketwired - October 28, 2016) - AdvancedMD, a pioneer in cloud technology for physician practices, will introduce its all-in-one cloud suite that empowers healthy practices and healthy patients through integrated physician and patient workflow at the MGMA 2016 Annual Conference in San Francisco, CA, Oct. 30 - Nov. 3, at booth #711. All technologies are seamlessly integrated to ensure a consistent user experience and provide private practices with tools and capabilities to compete with large hospitals and health networks.

"It's not about practice management or EHR, or patient engagement anymore. It's about the integrated suite, the integrated workflow between the physician and the patient," said Raul Villar, CEO, AdvancedMD. "This integrated workflow leverages everything from the time the patient is looking for a doctor online, to reading reviews about providers, to online scheduling, visiting with a doctor, e-prescribing, sending patient statements and managing collections. Our goal is to ensure that every independent physician in America has the same tools and capabilities that one could have at a large enterprise organization."

A new addition to the AdvancedMD unified suite is a complete telemedicine software platform, the first fully integrated telehealth solution for private practices designed to improve patient engagement, extend care to rural areas and increase chronic care coverage for at-home patients. MGMA attendees can demo AdvancedTelemedicine at booth #711 by participating in entertaining psychic readings via AdvancedMD telemedicine app -- a lively and interactive experience not to be missed!

"Supporting our network of independent physician practices with the ability to have telemedicine capabilities within the AdvancedMD platform will enable our clients to successfully compete in today's expanding telemedicine environment," said Arman Samani, AdvancedMD Chief Technology Officer.

AdvancedTelemedicine is fully integrated with AdvancedScheduling®, AdvancedBilling® and AdvancedEHR® to eliminate error-prone "copy and paste" actions from standalone telemedicine systems and manual inputs following a virtual encounter. From appointment scheduling to filing notes in the patient record and expediting the billing process, everything is unified for maximum efficiency.

The company will also introduce AdvancedRooming, a feature that allows practices to easily track patients throughout the visit -- from check-in to checkout with seamless automation to keep the patient flow optimally organized.

The AdvancedPatient® suite has been expanded to include automated appointment reminders, giving the practice the ability to deploy personalized text and email messages to patients. When automated reminders are used, practices increase show-up rates by 10-12 percent, saving between $100-150 per missed appointment.

Other activities at the AdvancedMD booth include educational sessions running every half hour during the exhibit hall hours:

  • Managing higher patient volumes with improved productivity and financial outcomes -- a mini session during which attendees will learn about improving the patient experience through patient portals, online appointment requests, patient consent forms, appointment reminders, an iPad check-in kiosk, rooming and telemedicine.
  • MACRA & what it means to you -- a discussion of the impact of MACRA on the independent physician practice. AdvancedMD experts will discuss the many resources available to help practices prepare, regardless of the software they use.
  • Evolution of the practice: Integrating provider and patient workflow -- a short overview of where the healthcare IT industry is going and why having a unified technology platform is crucial to achieve the efficiencies practices need and patients demand.
  • Reporting, analytics and physician benchmarking for the modern practice -- a conversation about evaluating financial performance using metrics like Total RVUs, encounters, accounts receivable and revenue cycle efficiency. Attendees will learn about technologies that let practices improve finances with the ability to benchmark performance against peers.
