Aprima and Tertiums Partner to Provide Electronic Health Records to Physician Practices

Tertiums, Inc. to provide Aprima EHR/PM solutions to medical practitioners throughout Puerto Rico and Caribbean

DALLAS, TX –June 9, 2010 –Aprima Medical Software, a leading developer of electronic health record (EHR), practice management (PM) and revenue cycle management solutions for medical practices, today announced a Gold VAR Agreement with Tertiums, Inc., a healthcare consulting and management firm with local presence in San Juan, Puerto Rico.

“This partnership with Aprima allows us to address the low adoption rates for EHRs in Puerto Rico,” says Sherry Woolard, CEO of Tertiums. “With only seven percent of physicians in Puerto Rico having adopted EHRs to-date, we are now positioned to offer a superior solution that can assist additional practices with meeting the criteria required for incentive payments.”

Tertiums specializes in a wide variety of areas within the healthcare market, and offers a complete solution for a range of clients including lawyers, physicians, nurses, health IT, sales representatives and customer representatives. As a value-added reseller, Tertiums will focus on providing Aprima’s solution to both single practitioners and large group practices throughout Puerto Rico and the Caribbean.

“Aprima offers physicians in Puerto Rico and the Carribean a cost-effective solution to improve their services,” said Guillermo J. Tirado, MD. Internal Medicine, Tertiums VP for Medical Affairs. “Ultimately, this partnership contributes to our goal of improving the overall quality and confidentiality of health services here.”

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. AprimaRCM 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.

“Our partnership with Tertiums allows Aprima to offer the Puerto Rico medical community access to our award-winning solutions through a local organization that truly understands the needs and requirements of the population,” said Michael Nissenbaum, President and CEO, Aprima. “Through the use of our template-free EHR software, users are able to create their own protocols without IT support or costly custom programming that a template-based system would require.”

The partnership was finalized in May of 2010.
