MIAMI, – The Palm Medical Group, a division of Hygea Healthcare, has selected HealthFusion, Inc., provider of top-ranked MediTouch® EHR software, as the Vendor of Choice for electronic health records (EHRs). Palm Medical, which represents more than 76 different physician specialties, is introducing HealthFusion's MediTouch to its more than 1,700 physician members looking to implement or upgrade EHRs in their practices and avoid Medicare penalties.
"The right EHR is vital for our physicians to successfully navigate not just Medicare programs, but the efficient daily practice of medicine, including workflow and quality of care," said Martha Castillo, Chief Operating Officer. "With over 26,000 users, HealthFusion provides an affordable, cloud-based electronic health record solution created by doctors, for doctors, and we believe our members will be well served by MediTouch's ease of use, affordable cost, and excellent customer support."
MediTouch is an EHR conceived by physicians for physicians and designed for practices of all sizes. The leading edge software is a total medical software solution with EHR, Practice Management, Clearinghouse and a Patient Portal. The system is cloud-based and works with tablets, PCs, and smart phones.
MediTouch EHR was recently ranked as a Top 3 Electronic Health Record (EHR) for Clinical Quality and Support in the Medical Economics' National Provider Survey. Of those Top 3 EHRs, MediTouch is unique because it is the only one to offer full functionality on the Apple iPad. The Medical Economics National Provider Survey is a critical EHR ranking study because it asked thousands of physicians to rate their systems, on a scale of 0 to 10, in the key areas that matter most to them.
"Physicians need software that includes groundbreaking features for managing CMS programs such as Chronic Care Management, Medicare Advantage, PQRS and Meaningful Use, as MediTouch does," said Dr. Sol Lizerbram, Chairman of HealthFusion. "Surveys have shown that providers want fully integrated medical software they can use on a tablet and maintain patient eye contact and interaction while charting. HealthFusion provides a completely integrated practice management system, clearinghouse, and patient portal with full EHR functionality on the iPad or other tablet, which makes it the total package."
