Capital Health Systems Chooses Aprima EHR Solution
Multi-specialty, hospital-owned group selects Aprima’s electronic health record to aid workflow of 50 physicians
DALLAS, TX –July 6, 2010 –Aprima Medical Software, a leading developer of electronic health record (EHR), practice management (PM) and revenue cycle management (RCM) solutions for medical practices, today announced that Capital Health Systems, a multi-location, multi-specialty, leading regional health system in central New Jersey, has selected its EHR solution.
“After doing our due diligence and evaluating more than half a dozen companies over the course of a year through on-site demos and various site visits in our area, we chose Aprima’s EHR solution,” said Nat Bosk, FACHE, Vice President, Ambulatory Services Division of Capital Health. “We received positive feedback from doctors we spoke to regarding the ease of use of Aprima’s EHR, which was the key factor in us choosing this product.”
Capital Health Systems manages 13 physician practices, with a total of 49 physicians who span various specialties ranging from endocrinology to cardiology. The health system is set to roll out Aprima’s EHR solution to its first practice in October of this year. As many patients see multiple physicians within the Capital Health System, Bosk and his team feel that having Aprima’s EHR will result in a more effective physician workflow, especially when sharing charts and information.
“Aprima is pleased to be the EHR of choice for this state-of-the art health system,” said Michael Nissenbaum, CEO of Aprima. “As a large, multiple-location health system, Capital Health requires careful and coordinated handling of patient records. Aprima’s software is designed to transition the health system from the cumbersome nature of paper charts to electronic medical records as easily as possible. We are looking forward to providing Capital Health with the guidance it needs to become a more integrated health system.”
Aprima’s template-free, content rich EHR software enables providers to follow their own protocols. Its adaptive learning feature speeds adoption and deployment, a critical capability as medical practices seek to meet “Meaningful Use” standards for government stimulus fund reimbursements. Furthermore, as a single EHR + PM application built on a single database, Aprima affords users with the fastest access to clinical and financial data. Aprima RCM addresses practices’ needs for seasoned financial expertise by delivering insight that helps practices collect every dollar they earn. Aprima’s licensing plans make sense for everyone from a solo rural practitioner to a multi-specialty urban group. Aprima 2011 is a pre-market conditionally CCHIT Certified® 2011 Ambulatory EHR additionally certified for Child Health.
CCHIT® and CCHIT Certified® are registered marks of the Certification Commission for Health Information Technology.
