DENVER, CO--(Marketwired - March 21, 2014) - Nextech, a leading provider of fully integrated electronic medical records (EMR), practice management, and marketing software solutions for specialty physician practices, today announced the release of key enhancements found in its Nextech version 11.2 software, which was recently ONC certified as a Complete EHR. Upgrades include new dictation and scheduling functionalities for Nextech's EMR iPad® application, allowing physicians to significantly improve patient engagement and workflow. Nextech will showcase its latest advancements at the American Association of Dermatology 72nd Annual Meeting, taking place from March 21-25 in Denver.
Nextech's enhanced dictation functionality, called NexSpeak, allows doctors to document care and securely transcribe patient information directly into the EMR -- anywhere, anytime -- from Nextech's EMR iPad®
application. This will allow practices to improve the speed and accuracy of documentation, reduce transcription costs and allow physicians to spend more one-on-one time with patients, ultimately improving the overall quality of care.
Additionally, Nextech's latest release includes new scheduling components for its EMR iPad®
application, enabling physicians and medical staff to schedule appointments before the patient leaves the exam room, thereby increasing efficiency and the patient experience. With mobile scheduling seamlessly integrated into the EMR, practices will be able to improve workflow and patient retention, as well as increase practice profitability.
"A common concern that physicians have expressed is that EMRs disturb not only workflow, but also face-to-face communication with the patient," says Christina Majeed chief product officer at Nextech. "With mobile dictation and scheduling modules available, physicians will now be able to accurately and efficiently document care, while still maintaining a quality healthcare experience for each patient."
