ACOs now have an option for medical records, medical billing and practice management
drchrono, Inc., the industry leading Electronic Health Record (EHR) platform on the web, iPad, iPhone and Apple Watch announced today that it has partnered with National ACO. Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs) are groups of doctors, hospitals, and other health care providers that come together voluntarily to give coordinated high quality care to their Medicare patients. National ACO has over 230 physicians with over 14,000 attributed beneficiaries (patients) under their care.
ACOs look to standardize software across groups of doctors and care providers. National ACO has selected drchrono as the software vendor of choice for medical records, practice management and medical billing.
Alex Foxman, M.D., F.A.C.P., President and Medical Director of National ACO states, “We are thrilled to have selected drchrono as our EHR. They are the premier medical records app for iPad, iPhone and web, and we are looking forward to working with their team.” The CEO, Andre Berger, M.D. goes on to say “National ACO understands that as we rapidly move from volume based to value based healthcare, information technology and a strong EHR will be critical to successful population health management.”
The goal of National ACO and drchrono is in preventing illness instead of just treating it, access to a team of doctors for a given patient, allowing connected care teams, treatment options based on proof of what works, and controlling medical costs. Platform interoperability and integration are critical to care teams and their ability to coordinate care and make accountable care a reality.
Michael Nusimow, CEO and co-founder of drchrono added, “We are proud to be selected as the Preferred EHR with National ACO. Our vision is to help National ACO streamline their communication, workflow and build out a strong network of providers, with drchrono as the glue that brings all of the local medical practices together.”
drchrono creates the best EHR experience for physicians and their patients; the platform was built for iPad, iPhone, Apple Watch and web. drchrono has 87,000 physicians signed up and 5.9 million patients to date. They were the first to implement medical speech-to-text, real-time patient eligibility checks and iPad-based medical billing. So far the company has booked 19 million patient appointments and processed over $1.2 billion dollars in medical billing per year. drchrono is ranked by Inc. 500 as one of the fastest growing private companies in America, listed for two years in a row for 2014 and 2015. Silicon Valley Business Journal designated drchrono as one of the fastest growing private companies and their EHR was voted the #1 mobile Electronic Health Record 3 years in a row by Black Book Rankings.
