DALLAS, TX –July 15, 2010 – Aprima Medical Software, a leading provider of electronic health record (EHR), practice management (PM) and revenue cycle management (RCM) solutions for medical practices, is pleased to be an EHR vendor in AmericanEHR Partners (www.AmericanEHR.com). AmericanEHR Partners, founded by the American College of Physicians’ (ACP) and Cientis Technologies, is a complimentary online community developed to improve EHR system selection through ratings and reviews from practicing physicians.
“Aprima is supportive of initiatives that enable medical practices to have exposure to a disciplined, intelligent EHR selection process,” said Michael Nissenbaum, President and CEO of Aprima. “We offer a template-free, content-rich EHR whose functionality has been well-regarded by physicians.”
AmericanEHR Partners brings together a growing number of specialty medical societies to provide resources on healthcare information technology (health IT). Members of these societies will be invited to evaluate the electronic health record software they use in their practice. The community also provides users with an array of educational material to help them meet Meaningful Use.
“The physician community stands to benefit when the EHR assessments reach a critical mass across a representative sample of leading electronic health record vendors,” said Nissenbaum. “Aprima is encouraging its customers and partners to make their specialty societies aware of this program. When enough assessments are provided, physicians will be able to make more informed EHR purchasing decisions, optimize the use of health IT and ultimately improve healthcare delivery.”
