Aprima and Etransmedia Announce Agreement to Offer Aprima EHR/PM to Customers of Allscripts MyWay™ Currently Using Etransmedia Hosting
Dallas, TX (March 25, 2014) – Aprima Medical Software and Etransmedia announced today that customers of Allscripts MyWay™ who are currently using Etransmedia for support and hosting services will now be able to upgrade to Aprima for their EHR (electronic health record) and PM (practice management) needs.
“Aprima is very pleased to have forged this new agreement with Etransmedia that is in the best interest of their Allscripts MyWay™ users. We want to welcome those customers and help them move forward after what many have said has been a long and tenuous path of uncertainty. We’re confident they’ll have the same positive experiences as the other 1,500+ former customers of Allscripts MyWay™ who have already joined the Aprima family,” stated Michael Nissenbaum, president of Aprima.
According to Vik Agrawal, CEO at Etransmedia, “I am extremely pleased to have been able to work through this process to make Aprima available to our Allscripts MyWay™ customers.”
Etransmedia and Aprima have created two options for Etransmedia customers: either become a client of Aprima, or use the Aprima system but remain a hosted client of Etransmedia. Either way, they’ll benefit in a variety of ways from the Aprima Rescue Plan which offers customers the following advantages:
- Free Aprima licenses for each Allscripts MyWay™ license – no need to repurchase software; up to an $8,500 savings per provider
- Similar look and feel; Aprima has made nearly 1,000 enhancements since it licensed the original source code to Allscripts in 2008, including hundreds of substantive improvements to the PM system
- Certified for Meaningful Use Stage 2
- ICD-10 ready
- Minimal learning curve, since it is only needed for the new features
- Minimal downtime compared to what is typical when changing systems and having to re-learn many new workflows
- Existing data remains intact; this is a proven product upgrade, not a conversion
- U.S.-based support
Since October 2012, when Allscripts announced that it would not develop or update the Allscripts MyWay™ product to be in compliance with government incentives and requirements such as Meaningful Use and ICD-10, over 1,500 former customers of Allscripts MyWay™ have chosen to upgrade to Aprimaas the best and obvious choice for their practice. That number is growing daily.
Rather than migrate to Allscripts Pro™ – which requires a change in systems, plus a potentially arduous data conversion and retraining period, potentially creating mental, physical and financial disruption to the practice – providers from all over the country are taking advantage of the Aprima Rescue Plan™ for customers of Allscripts MyWay™. Not only have practices chosen Aprima, but dozens of resellers of the Allscripts MyWay™ product have also chosen to make the move to Aprima, as the demand for the Aprima solution grows from their customers.
Practices who have already taken advantage of the Aprima Rescue Plan™ are eager to recommend Aprima to peers who are still on the fence about whether or not to migrate to Allscripts Pro™ or another EHR vastly different from Allscripts MyWay™. Some of our new customers have told us they were concerned that they would lose their financial and other data if they converted to Allscripts Pro™. For customers of Allscripts MyWay™ who have upgraded to Aprima, this has consistently proven to be a non-issue.
