Leading EHR Provider InteGreat Introduces Practice Management Solution

Physicians Nationwide to Benefit From Unified EHR and Practice Management Offering

SCOTTSDALE, AZ -- (MARKET WIRE) -- March 28, 2006 -- InteGreat (www.igreat.com), a leading provider of electronic health record (EHR) systems, unifies practice management and EHR through a new application designed to increase workflow and revenue while reducing manual intervention and operational costs. InteGreat's new practice management solution, called IC-Manage, works seamlessly with InteGreat's IC-Chart EHR system, which provides access to clinical data, including patient demographic information, laboratory reports, transcribed documents and radiology records.

IC-Manage transparently integrates with IC-Chart, allowing practices to unite clinical information with practice management data, such as appointment scheduling. Among other benefits, it will improve patient care and increase patient volume for clinics. IC-Manage runs on a Microsoft database and Microsoft Explorer browser.

"In developing IC-Manage, we have responded to requests for one system to handle both EHR and practice management," says Jim Houtz, InteGreat's CEO. "This is powerful software that will give clinical users the same look and feel whether they are scheduling an appointment, posting a payment or documenting a clinical visit. With IC-Manage, workflow will now be more in line with how a practice really works."

IC-Manage's intuitive screen environment allows clinic personnel to:

--  Schedule appointments, including recurring office visits, for single
    and multiple resources;
--  Manage authorized visits;
--  Verify insurance eligibility and medical necessity;
--  Manage accounts receivable (insurance billing and payments, patient
    billing, collection reports and work lists); and
--  Improve their financial-reporting capabilities, including generation
    of daily, monthly and yearly processing reports; practice analysis reports;
    reimbursement analysis by financial class and insurance; physician
    productivity analyses; patient and guarantor transaction history; and more.
    

IC-Chart's Features and Benefits

IC-Chart application looks and functions like a physician's current patient charts, so integrating the solution into the physician's office workflow is natural and painless. Office personnel typically need less than one hour to learn the system. Complexity increases as more functionality is added, yet the system's design makes each module easy to learn and use.
