An EHR Solution Designed With Providers in Mind

The EHR, Built By a Physician, To Help Your Private Practice Survive and Thrive

Amazing Charts Offers Convenient Ways to Learn About Our State-of-the-Art EHR

Well-designed EHR software can be a boon to productivity and efficiency for your private practice. Your practice EHR contains a digital record of your patient’s health history, and also serves as a portal for easier patient communications. But too many providers say they struggle with poorly-designed – and expensive – EHRs that make it more difficult to do their jobs.

That is what sets Amazing Charts apart – our company was founded by a physician who understood the challenges independent physicians face on a daily basis. The Amazing Charts EHR enables clinicians to chart quickly with the least number of clicks, while keeping the cost affordable.

Our EHR solutions have been adopted by over 6700 independent medical practices, including those in family medicine, internal medicine, pediatrics, surgery, cardiologists and a wide array of additional specialties. To this day, Amazing Charts consistently ranks as a top EHR for ease of use and remains an affordable option for private medical practices.

How to Implement Amazing Charts EHR Services at Your Independent Practice

Amazing Charts is here to help all the way with a thoughtful EHR implementation to help your private practice adapt more easily to our EHR system, which will benefit patients, physicians and staff. AMA recommendations for a smooth implementation include:

Create an implementation team:

The typical implantation team should include physicians, nurses, receptionists, medical assistants, compliance personnel, and administrative staff. Members at each level will be needed to teach EHR skills to their colleagues and also bring challenges back to the implementation team.

Configure the software:

Work with Amazing Charts to configure your EHR software to meet your exact practice needs. Think about the needs you have to make sure the software helps to optimize the entire practice workflow. Discuss your needs for practice-specific or specialty-specific templates to support your documentation requirements. Decide whether your EHR will be based locally or in the cloud.

Transfer data:

Determine your practice’s step-by-step approach for transferring patient data from any preexisting system to your new EHR. You can assign existing staff to assist with this process, or consider hiring temporary staff to upload specific information that does not compromise patient confidentiality. Prepare a checklist of items to enter, so no critical information is missed during the transfer.

Consider the room layout:

Equipment placement in your exam rooms affects your ability to deliver quality patient care. Place your equipment so you can maintain eye contact with the patient, ask questions, and monitor body language. Don’t get so engrossed in the EHR that you fail to recognize any changes in patient behavior.

Communicate to patients:

Clearly convey the EHR changeover to patients, so they can be involved in the process. Explain that you are making this change in order to provide better patient care. Use your website and social media to explain how the new EHR impacts visit and billing protocols. Consider producing short video demonstrations to explain how to use any patient-directed aspects, such as the patient portal or e-prescribing.

Identify digital needs:

Review your current hardware and data capabilities to ensure you have the best hardware, network and data services to support your updated EHR needs. Some practices find that a printer in every room saves 30 minutes of provider time per day, while a larger monitor can save up to 20 minutes per day. You can also reduce time spent logging into the system multiple times each day by providing every worker with a laptop or tablet to carry from room to room. Compliance and security questions are a big consideration during this stage.

Optimize pre-launch workflows:

Don’t wait until you have the EHR system in place to optimize your practice workflows. Problems that you already have that result from poor workflow planning might be further exacerbated during the EHR implementation. Think about the steps you use and ask if they are necessary, add value, and are being done by the right person in the right order. You might be surprised to find that these changes will help to improve workflow before you even begin using the EHR.

Decide on the launch approach:

Your practice may choose to take an all-at-once or an incremental approach to launching your EHR. Once the implementation team decides on the launch approaches, begin acclimating to the new EHR system in your practice. Clearly communicate to staff when the change will take place, and answer questions to eliminate confusion. Work closely with your EHR vendor to minimize implementation hassles.

Develop a training plan:

Proper training of providers and support team members is critical to ensure the success of your EHR implementation. Remember that no two people learn at the same pace, so create a training plan that gives everyone the necessary knowledge and skills to use the EHR at the time of launch. Also, think about training requirements when new team members are added to the practice.

Frequently Asked Questions

While the two terms are used somewhat interchangeably, they do have different meanings. EMR stands for electronic medical records and is closer to being a digital version of a medical chart. Providers use EMR software more for diagnosis and treatment, and there is little ability to share the information outside of the practice. An EHR includes patient charting information, but also provides access to more robust tools that can be used for decision-making and administrative support. Information is more capable of being shared with other providers and medical services.

Amazing Charts has designed an EHR that reduces your stress and improves your bottom line. Benefits your practice will realize from our EHR software include:

  • Increased Efficiency: Don’t waste time with inefficient charting practices. Amazing Charts saves time by easily automating charting tasks, supporting e-prescriptions, and streamlining provider workflows.
  • Security: Amazing Charts EHR protects against data breaches and ensures HIPAA compliance.
  • Accessibility: Providers can access patient data from desktop, laptop and mobile devices.
  • Total Package: We make it easy to seamlessly integrate your EHR with our Practice Management software, for even more office efficiency.

These benefits mean that your private practice will run more efficiently, allowing you and your team members to focus more fully on caring for your patients and maintaining profitability.

The best way for you to provide quality patient care is to have an EHR that works efficiently and an office that operates cost-effectively. Your providers need to quickly access and understand patient histories, document all visit notes, and maintain efficient ongoing communication with patients. Our EHR makes all of that easy for you, with customizable templates that help you capture relevant information, scheduling support, electronic superbills, and a Patient Portal. Less stress for you, better care for them!
