Updox offers integrated communications solutions for eMDs’ electronic health record solutions
Updox, the industry leader for care coordination and healthcare connectivity solutions, was selected by eMDs, a leading provider of ambulatory electronic medical record (EMR), practice management (PM) software, revenue cycle management (RCM) solutions, and credentialing services, to integrate a single-source platform for provider-to-provider and provider-to-patient communications for eMDs’ Practice Partner, Solution Series, Plus, Lytec, and Medisoft EMR and Practice Management Systems to make their practices more efficient and their care and outcomes more effective.
“We received feedback from our client base of more than 59,000 providers that they need proven, integrated, easy-to-use solutions for engaging and streamlining communications with their patients and other providers,” said Derek Pickell, CEO, eMDs. “We believe Updox offers a best-of-breed solution for our client base.”
Updox for eMDs addresses three of the biggest challenges that practices face today – managing communications within the office, with other providers and engaging patients, but doing so in one coordinated way. Most practices use different solutions or platforms. The reality is these are not separate activities that require different systems.
Updox offers a web-based solution where all practice communications – secure emails, messages from patients, faxes, and referrals – route to a universal inbox and can be easily read, responded to or filed. For example, a referral is received to the practice inbox. It can be read, dated, signed, forwarded and attached to a patient chart in less than a minute – in a secure, electronic and paperless format.
All of this is done in a way that lowers costs and saves time so that practice resources can be focused on more valuable, patient-centric tasks.
“This partnership is ideal because both eMDs and Updox share a passion for helping providers remain independent,” said Michael Morgan, Updox CEO. “This communication solution offers providers immediate benefits for their healthcare businesses and gives a foundation for future success as the industry moves toward value-based care.”
