HDI Technologies Accelerates Access to Template-Free Electronic Health Record and Practice Management Software Across the Midwest Through Reseller Agreement with Aprima Medical Software

Chief Complaint Driven Application Speeds Physician Workflow; Adaptive Learning Reduces Need for Custom Programming

DALLAS – Dec. 9, 2009 – HDI Technologies, a provider of healthcare and legal IT solutions, services, training and technical support in the Midwest, today announced it has entered into a reseller relationship with Aprima Medical Software, a leading developer of electronic health record (EHR) and practice management (PM) systems for medical practices. HDI Technologies notes that Aprima’s chief complaint driven application makes it easier for physicians to interview patients and document encounters while maintaining eye contact with the patient. HDI will implement and support Aprima’s solutions.

“We’re rapidly taking Aprima’s award-winning, robust EHR/PM solutions out to physician groups as it is critical that they invest in an EHR now in order to qualify for the full stimulus funding,” said Tom Spees, CEO of HDI Technologies. “Aprima’s flexible solutions run on a PC. Their software is especially elegant when used on a tablet PC since the software was designed with capabilities such as single click selection that benefit a physician when a tablet is used. The tablet approach offers immense speed gains and allows the physician to focus on patient care and relationships.”

Aprima’s solution includes electronic data interchange capabilities, automated tasks and messaging to speed office workflows. The system handles patient documentation on one screen with fully integrated e-prescribing and lab results ordering. Its clinical and financial reporting functionality enables physicians to gain insight on their patient populations and practice profitability. The system’s adaptive learning automatically brings frequently used terms to the top of pick lists without requiring programming work from the IT department. Unlike template-based EHRs, Aprima’s template-free design enables each provider to practice according to their own protocols rather than having to conform to standards the entire practice would otherwise be forced to adopt.

HDI Technologies can implement Aprima’s PM solution fully integrated with the Aprima EHR or HDI can integrate the Aprima EHR with a group’s existing practice management solution. Based on the medical group’s hosting needs, HDI Technologies will support the platform via ASP (requiring only a tablet with high-speed Internet access and a browser) or a locally hosted solution.

Michael Nissenbaum, President and CEO of Aprima, says, “One of the things we like about HDI Technologies is that the care they give their customers across the Midwest matches the attitude we take with our own end user clients. They have earned their customers’ trust. When a practice implements an electronic health record and practice management system, it’s a commitment from the physicians, administrative staff and the company doing the implementing. We’re delighted to partner with HDI.”
