Cary Adult Medicine achieves Level 3 Patient-Centered Medical Home Certification from NCQA using Updox and Amazing Charts
Cary, NC and Columbus, OH – October 26, 2012: Dr. Bob Resnik at Cary Adult Medicine has been recognized as a Level 3 Patient-Centered Medical Home by the National Committee for Quality Assurance. Dr. Resnik and his staff are committed to providing the highest quality of medical care combined with unparalleled accessibility for their patients. Many insurance plans around the country have recognized that PCMH Level 3 leads to much higher quality care and significant healthcare savings which results in higher reimbursement rates to providers. The Patient-Centered Medical Home raises the standard for providing the highest quality care focusing on access, health information technology and a partnership between patients and their doctors.
Dr. Resnik relied heavily on Updox for front office communications and Amazing Charts for his electronic health record, to help meet the stringent qualifications of his Level 3 certification. The Cary Adult Medicine web site even offers patients the ability to schedule appointments and even conduct E-visits using the Updox portal. Conducting an E-visit with Dr. Resnik allows patients to provide an update on their medical conditions and / or medical issues or concerns that will be inserted directly into the patient’s record. After reviewing this information, Dr. Resnik can even provide treatment without having the patient come into the office.
“Choosing the right technology solutions is critical to achieving 2011 PCMH certification especially for level 3. Amazing Charts and Updox provide the perfect solutions to improve the quality and efficiency of care and to securely improve communication between our practice and patients, specialists, hospitals and other health care facilities.”
Updox provides Cary Adult medicine with a secure portal for sharing and collecting information with patients. With the PCMH guidelines, every interaction needs to be recorded electronically and Updox facilitates a workflow for moving patient data and forms directly into Amazing Charts.
Amazing Charts EHR is a key component of Dr. Resnik’s practice for maintaining patient information and providing the necessary reporting and tracking to NCQA and his insurance companies. Choosing Amazing Charts for his EHR has given Dr. Resnik flexible reporting functionality and data export capabilities, which was critical for meeting certification.
“Amazing Charts provides me the ability to show improvement and results and easily share the data with NCQA through customized reports, and other EHRs can’t do it.”
