Aprima Expands Rescue Plan to Assist Healthcare Providers with their EHR Woes

67% of providers report dissatisfaction and have plans to change their EHR.1
This expansion makes the Aprima Rescue Plan available to more practices than ever before.

Dallas, TX (September 17, 2015) – Aprima Medical Software announces the expansion of its highly successful Rescue Plan to include providers using many other EHR systems, giving them the opportunity to follow in the footsteps of numerous peers by switching to Aprima, what most providers consider a less cumbersome, more cost effective system. For a discounted rate up to 65% off the per provider license fee, providers can take advantage of the Aprima Rescue PlanTM to convert from their current legacy EHR to Aprima’s easy-to-use system.

According to a Wells Fargo Securities report2, Aprima ranks among the top five vendors that physicians chose to replace their previous EHR. Nearly 2,000 providers switched to Aprima after the company introduced the original Aprima Rescue Plan in October 2012. Here’s what some of these new customers tell us about their experience.

For Dr. Lauranne Harris, the financial benefits were almost instantly apparent. Before upgrading to Aprima, her practice had struggled. The situation was immediately resolved after upgrading to Aprima. “The day after the practice went live a professional trainer arrived to train us. We got $100K in billing out the door that day and within a week, we had already begun receiving payments,” Dr. Harris recalled.

J. Woodson Dermatology & Associates reaped benefits that were nothing less than the driving reason to go paperless. Thanks to Aprima EHR’s insurance eligibility checking, the practice no longer has to assign a full-time employee to this previously tedious task. “In my opinion, there was nothing comparable to that in our old system,” practice administrator Lori Haynie said. J. Woodson Dermatology & Associates is currently scanning all of its images and charts within the Aprima EHR, another functionality that, according to Haynie, the prior vendor neglected to train the practice how to use.

“Aprima is very pleased to offer customers of these other products a cost-effective opportunity to convert to a better EHR system,” stated Michael Nissenbaum, president of Aprima. “We continue to hear from users of other EHR systems that those products are expensive, difficult to use and in some cases may have an unsure or limited lifespan. We want to help providers switch to Aprima so they can get the same positive experience so many others have already received, and one which they expect and deserve.”
