The American Podiatric Medical Association (APMA) is hosting its Annual Scientific Meeting (The National) in 2015 in Orlando, Florida from July 23-26. The National is the leading foot and ankle conference for podiatric medical professionals. It features seminars, hands-on training sessions and workshops, and an exhibit hall where vendors can showcase Podiatry EMR software and other industry-specific products.
1st Providers Choice is excited to be attending The National and to have the ability to demonstrate the many features of its EMR software for podiatrists. The EMR software helps physicians attest for Meaningful Use and qualify for stimulus incentives. The intuitive Meaningful Use dashboard allows podiatrists to track their progress meeting specific MU objectives, view percentages of compliancy and more.
Switching to electronic health records software for the first time can be a huge undertaking for pulmonary practices, especially if the software being implemented has not been designed specifically for the pulmonary specialty. Unfortunately, many medical practices find this to be true only after having used their newly-acquired EMR software in a live environment. By this time, the practice will have invested large amounts of time and money into the software, despite the EMR not being capable of meeting many of the practice’s basic needs.
The Physician Quality Reporting System (PQRS) is a program that encourages eligible healthcare professionals and group practices to report information to Medicare on the quality of care that they provide.
Using feedback provided by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), physicians can then easily assess the quality of care that they are providing, compare their performance to their peers, and make necessary adjustments in order to improve care quality. This ensures that patients always have access to the best care possible.
