We sent out a message last week indicating our employees would begin working remotely if the situation surrounding COVID-19 required it, and we’ve made the decision to do so. We’re still well positioned to support and prevent disruptions for your practice. You can reach our Support team through the normal channels.
Our main focus right now is helping our customers. We’re shifting our priorities to mitigate any issues related to COVID-19, and we’ll be doing everything we can to help our providers and their patients. To that end, we’re focused on enabling the delivery of telemedicine and remote clinical services, and our solutions are fully capable of supporting the billing and documentation for these activities. These solutions are aligned with the recent stimulus packages to enable our practices to continue to see patients and take full advantage of available relief measures. We’ll be monitoring this closely and will deploy updates and guidance as needed. We’ve partnered with telemedicine and remote clinical support vendors to make these services immediately available. See below for more info on our telehealth and remote practice support solutions.
Please be aware that we will be increasing communication with you in the coming days to keep you aware of product-specific information related to COVID-19.
Thanks for working to keep all of us safe and healthy.

“Online and telephone visits,” according to Dr. Joseph Scherger, “allow for more time than face-to-face visits and can be equally effective.”
Technology, such as Remote Patient Monitoring, allows providers to predict future outbreaks while maintaining care plans for chronic patients.
With virtual care demands expected to continue beyond the COVID-19 pandemic, it’s important for small practices to prepare for ongoing telemedicine needs.
The US Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) has made additional funds available for providers who apply. Providers may be eligible if they received general distribution payments in April.
Congress struck an agreement on Tuesday (April 21st) to provide another $310B for the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) and another $60B for the Economic Injury Disaster Loan (EIDL). This comes after the PPP and the EIDL ran out of money last week.
Ensuring your practice is digitally equipped, especially throughout the COVID-19 crisis, is crucial in order to serve as a dependable and stress-free source for your patients.
On April 16, 2020 the Small Business Administration announced that the $350B allocated for the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) loans have been depleted. This comes after the Economic Injury Disaster Loan (EIDL) program stopped accepting new applications as well.
Ensuring patients are receiving essential and consistent care during the COVID-19 crisis is crucial to maintaining a healthy patient population.
The US Department of Health & Human Services will begin to distribute $30 billion of funds via direct deposit to eligible providers. All facilities and providers that received Medicare fee-for-service (FFS) reimbursements in 2019 are eligible.
Many practices may be playing financial “catch up” for months or years to come unless they take decisive action now to take advantage of telehealth reimbursement and availability of home-based health services.
With COVID-19 vaccine production ramping up, your office may get access to an allotment soon. Preparing your office and patients for this availability is extremely important in ensuring a timely and efficient rollout, and being proactive in reaching out to your most vulnerable patients is the first step you can take in the process.
Watch our on-demand webinar to learn about a tool you can use with Amazing Charts EHR or CareTracker EHR to easily identify and reach out to the patients you specify – whether it be by age, pre-existing conditions or other distinctions. Rather than a clinician or staff member combing through data and making calls, we’ll show you how you can automate much of this process, freeing you up to spend more time caring for patients and less time in front of a computer.
We will continue to update this page as new information is made available.
