Leading Advocate of Direct Primary Care Endorses Amazing Charts InLight EHR

Dr. Brian Forrest, CEO of Access Healthcare Direct network, Names Amazing Charts InLight EHR a preferred solution for DPC practices

BOSTON, MA--(Marketwired - December 06, 2016) - Amazing Charts, LLC, a leading developer of Electronic Health Record (EHR) and Practice Management (PM) systems for independent physician practices, today announced that Dr. Brian Forrest, CEO of Access Healthcare Direct network and one of the strongest voices in the Direct Primary Care (DPC) movement, has named Amazing Charts InLight EHR, a web-based, problem-oriented medical records system, as a preferred solution for clinical documentation in DPC practices.

Separately, Amazing Charts announced a free webinar presented by Dr. Forrest: How to Participate in the Multimillion Dollar IMPACT Practice Transformation Network Grant. This federal grant is aimed at transforming hundreds of practices to a value-based DPC model with free software and practice optimization tools, free CME and education, and a financial incentive for joining. The webinar is scheduled for Thursday, Dec. 15 at 12:30 p.m., ET.

Dr. Forrest pioneered DPC in the U.S. in 2001, and has since become a leading DPC teacher, lecturer, and consultant for individuals, medical schools, health systems, and practices. As he continues to guide DPC practices through his "DPC Boot Camps" and the Access Healthcare Direct network of physicians, Dr. Forrest will recommend Amazing Charts InLight EHR for both startup practices, as well as for established practices unsatisfied with their EHR and looking to make a switch.

"Amazing Charts InLight EHR has a unique approach to usability that is well-suited to the clinical workflow in DPC practices," said Dr. Forrest. "The home screen focuses on patient problems, which fits well with how physicians are trained to think in the exam room. The system also supports high-quality care with modularity. Some practices want the flexibility of using multiple vendors for technology like patient engagement and membership management rather than one locked-in solution where they might dislike one component and be stuck with that package."

"Dr. Forrest is a pioneer in the DPC movement, and his endorsement validates the positive feedback we've received from physicians who have built DPC practices with Amazing Charts InLight EHR," said John Squire, president and COO of Amazing Charts. "Many primary care providers are feeling professionally burnt out. They want to avoid the extra burdens of insurance claims and spend more time with patients who pay them directly. Amazing Charts InLight EHR supports that practice model with a complete set of intuitive billing and clinical documentation tools."
