EMR Reviews & Testimonials
Looking for Practice Partner Reviews? Physcians share what they think of EMR. Hear it from their prospective and get the inside scoop- what they would have changed during implementation, what they love about the software, which features they can’t live without, how it has changed their practice, the personal benefits of using an electronic medical record, hear their advice, and much more.
Jaron J. Fischbeck, MD- gives a great overview of EHR. He discusses what it was like joining an office that was implementing a new EHR – Practice Partner. He had previously experienced the transition from paper using NextGen. Describes the first day using the software- how the physicians and the staff reacted during the transition. Compares the difference of practicing medicine using paper charts vs using electronic charts. The staff is much more productive than when they used paper. Lists the benefits for the patients and how it helps him provide better medical care.
Many doctors fear that a laptop or computer will come between them and their patients. Doctors love having that personable relationship. Janet L. Mullins, MD shares how her electronic health record has actually enhanced the doctor / patient relationship which is something she had previously feared. For her and her patients EHR is a great tool rather than a hindrance. She also discusses the change in her staff and how that was effected by implementing Practice Partner.
EHR can improve and increase a practice’s bottom line. Kachina Family Practice has enjoyed an increase in cashflow since implementing EHR. By using Total Practice Partner and having her billing integrated she can easily track where the money is and when it is coming in. The software helps with coding and she feels it is much more realistic (no more downcoding!) and their reimbursement per patient has gone up significantly.
“I absolutely LOVE Practice Partner!” Janet L. Mullins, MD describes why and how she chose her EHR. The first time she saw Practice Partner it reminded her of a chart and was much more comfortable to her than other electronic charts she has seen. She researched several software options and has never regretted her choice of Practice Partner.
Thanks to EMR Dr Mullins no longer spends hours after work charting. As a practice owner she has noticed a drastic improvement in the efficiency of her staff. They have fewer staff members per physician and rarely do they have to work overtime. No longer do they have to worry about the chart chase and wasting hours a day hunting down charts. Productivity has increased and she can now easily see as many as 30 patients a day compared to 20 or 22 before. Because of quicker documentation she can spend quality time with the patient instead of spending that time on paper work. Electronic Prescriptions (e-Rx) is easier for the practice and the patient.
Features Dr. Mullins loves- Bright Note Technology: Dr. Mullins explains how with this feature she only has to put the information in one spot and it automatically pushes it into all the other necessary places in the patient’s chart where it belongs. 2nd Versatility: Doctors have choices in their documentation style. Templates, Dictating, Dragon. Her personal preference is templates. In her opinion all medical offices should go to EMR. It improves efficiency, it improves quality in patient care, and decreases errors. After the first 6 months life with EMR is so delightful compared to before.
