CareCloud and Xpress Technologies Partner, Make Practice and Patient Management Easy for Urgent Care Facilities

Cloud-Based Technology Makes a Trip to the Emergency Room Less Traumatic for Patients and Physicians

MIAMI, FL--(Marketwire - May 10, 2011) - CareCloud, the company modernizing healthcare management with powerful cloud-based software and services, and Xpress Technologies, leading provider of physician and nursing documentation, have partnered to launch a combined EMR and practice management solution for urgent care facilities and hospital emergency rooms. The solution offers integration of EMR with daily operations -- improving patient flow, decreasing wait time and alleviating stress for busy physicians and nurses.

"Clunky, old-fashioned practices create a huge administrative burden for staff and make patients highly unsatisfied with their healthcare experience," says Dr. Ralph Badanowski, CEO of Xpress Technologies. "Combining our leading EMR solution with CareCloud's practice management technology, we now have an even more powerful solution for emergency medicine. CareCloud's agile software allowed us to help create a complete solution solving key administrative pain points for both busy staff and patients."

By combining CareCloud's highly visual and intuitive navigation with Xpress Technologies' proven EMR solution, busy practices can maximize efficiency and profitability. Physicians and nurses are quickly able to manage patient records in a fast-paced environment. After treatment is completed, billing can be submitted right away through CareCloud's revenue management feature. This provides full transparency through the entire revenue process, as well as key metrics and analytics to help understand revenue streams even further.

"Medical staff at urgent care facilities need reliable, easy-to-use software solutions so they can focus on treating patients," said Albert Santalo, CEO of CareCloud. "Doctors and nurses shouldn't have to worry about antiquated, badly designed software programs slowing them down. Even more important to busy practices, there is a dire need for solutions that can keep up with their users. Together, CareCloud and Xpress Technologies do just that."

CareCloud and Xpress Technologies provide emergency and urgent care practices with a powerful, secure platform for practice management, e-prescribing, electronic medical records and patient portals, automating everything a successful, modern medical practice needs, like insurance verification, patient tracking, billing, and payment processing. Delivered in the cloud, data is more secure, less expensive and easily accessible, anytime, anywhere, on any device (desktop, laptop, or tablet). With a pay-as-you-go subscription model, customers pay a low, predictable monthly fee without having to invest heavily upfront.

Finally, emergency and urgent care providers have a seamless solution for EMR, practice management and medical billing. In an environment where time is short and efficiency is essential, this partnership will help emergency medical practices streamline processes, reduce costs and improve patient care.
