Aprima Doubles Sales in First Fiscal Quarter
Dallas, TX (August 1, 2011) — Aprima Medical Software announced today that its bookings for the first quarter of fiscal year 2012 increased by 128%, compared to the same period a year ago. This increase follows the company’s 92% compound annual growth rate of sales over the two preceding fiscal years.
CEO Michael Nissenbaum pointed out, “Aprima has experienced strong, steady growth in the size and diversity of its installed base. With our integrated system of electronic health records (EHR), practice management (PM), and revenue cycle management (RCM), Aprima software appeals to practices large and small, internists to orthopedic surgeons, and even hospitals. And they all see big gains in both patient care and financial performance.”
Key wins in the first three months include a 15-provider podiatry practice in Atlanta, Ankle & Foot Centers of Georgia, following the path of many others who chose Aprima in recent months; the Pensacola Lung Group, a 6-physician pulmonary, critical care, and sleep medicine group in Florida that continues to strengthen Aprima’s position in Pulmonary Medicine; Union County Physician Corporation/Memorial Hospital of Union County, Ohio, a hospital-owned multispecialty group that purchased Aprima for its physicians on the heels of Wilson Medical Center in Raleigh, NC, who also chose Aprima over a large and diverse field of vendors; Summit Community Care Clinic in Frisco, Colorado, a 7-provider community health group which continues the strong expansion Aprima is seeing into the CHC/FQHC market; and Holy Name Medical Center in Teaneck, NJ, a hospital with 850 staff physicians, where Aprima just successfully completed pilot testing.
More and more practices like these are selecting Aprima EHR, PM, and RCM as they hear how much their colleagues are benefiting from the system. Dr. Craig Hersh, Physician Medical Information Officer at the Holy Name Medical Center, said, “Aprima is powerful, easy to use, and easily adapts to different doctors’ styles. The integration between Aprima and our hospital information system is a big advantage to both the hospital and individual physicians.”
Pensacola Lung Group had grown frustrated when its previous EHR wanted an expensive upgrade to allow “meaningful use.” Instead, Administrator Ted LaPointe and the physicians chose to switch to Aprima EHR+PM as a more powerful, more cost-effective, web-based option. “I particularly appreciate that Aprima’s EHR and PM are one program, working from one database, with everything our doctors need visible from one window.”
Aprima offers a fully integrated, single-application, single-database PM/EHR solution, supplemented by a full-service Revenue Cycle Management offering. The user-friendly EHR is chief–complaint-driven, with an adaptive learning capability that responds to each provider’s habits. The comprehensive knowledge base quickly displays appropriate content based on the presenting chief complaint, speeding up documentation. Aprima’s robust PM software includes all the tools a busy practice needs, including insurance eligibility, optical character recognition for automating data input, and built-in reporting capabilities. Aprima’s RCM service, coupled with the comprehensive Aprima software, allows practices to maximize their reimbursements and minimize payment time.
