Aprima and MRM Partner to Bring Award-Winning Electronic Health Record Solution to Practices in Tennessee, Virginia
MRM to Provide Aprima EHR Solution to local practices
DALLAS and JOHNSON CITY, TN –October 13, 2009 – Aprima Medical Software (originally iMedica), a leading developer of electronic health record (EHR) and practice management (PM) systems for medical practices, today announced a reseller agreement with Medical Reimbursement Management (MRM), a locally owned and operated medical billing company in Johnson City, Tennessee. The agreement will bring Aprima’s award-winning EHR/PM software and MRM’s medical billing expertise to physician practices in East Tennessee, Western North Carolina, and Southwest Virginia.
“Over the last five years MRM has been dedicated to providing excellent service and an outstanding medical billing product to our clients,” said Andy Hight, MRM’s COO. “The partnership with Aprima will enhance that offering and provide our clients – and our future clients – access to a solution that has received multiple industry certifications with the benefit of local training and support.
MRM entered into the agreement with Aprima in February 2009. Since then staff members have completed training at Aprima’s Dallas office and have implemented the Aprima EHR at the Kingsport office of Dr. J. Paul Singh, an MRM client. “Dr. Singh has been tremendous,” said Hight. “He has allowed MRM to use his practice as our beta installation site. The knowledge gained during that implementation, plus Dr. Singh’s input, has been invaluable. We are confident that our future clients will benefit from this experience.”
Aprima’s unique, template-free design enables providers to follow their own protocols. Its adaptive learning feature speeds adoption and deployment. Its single database, single application design affords users with the fastest access to clinical and financial data. Aprima’s flexible pricing plan makes sense for everyone from a solo rural practitioner to a multi-specialty urban practice.
“MRM’s medical practices can easily enhance their PQRI (Patient Quality Reporting Initiative) reimbursement with Aprima,” said Michael Nissenbaum, President and CEO of Aprima. “Improved reimbursement and enhanced practice profitability go a long way to help ease the transition from paper to electronic records. These advantages help overcome known concerns about practice downtime and staff training that are simply part of the normal implementation process.”
