1st Providers Choice Testimonials & Reviews

“We are a multi-Specialty private practice. We have enjoyed our new EMR for the past year for several reasons. First of all, the people behind it are fabulous. We have a dedicated team for my practice that consists of a general manager, dedicated trainers and IT support, as well as a dedicated Billing team. As our needs change, and as challenges arise, 1st Providers choice is there for us. I have personally become friends with several of their employees. Second, the software is customizable and that means it can serve our specific needs and change as we grow and evolve. In addition, 1st Providers Choice listens to its customers and will take requests to the programmers for optimization or addition of services. Third, this EMR has all the latest modules that are needed by any Medical Practice today, such as eRx, eFax, a patient portal with an App, email and text notifications for appointment reminders. It has a dedicated Meaningful Use module that allows the doctor to be up to date for CMS compliance. In addition, the MU team helps the doctor attest at the end of the year. Lastly, the billing module is amazing, with a real-time Accounts Receivable module that is easily perused by the doctor, and allows us to keep on top of any billing issues, before they become a big problem. In summary, we have been able to be more efficient and productive, with a friendlier and more helpful support team since using 1st Providers Choice. I highly recommend it.”

“I am overjoyed with the IMS program and the services 1st Providers Choice offers. There is no question converting to electronic medical records with 1st Providers Choice is one of the best business decisions I have made to date. The staff is professional, incredibly knowledgeable, terrific instructors and eager to help at a moment’s notice. Any transitions made in my practice, e.g., conversion to electronic prescriptions including controlled medications, have been smooth. The protection electronic medical records and escripts provides to me, my practice, my patients and the local pharmacists is appreciated by all. In short, I would recommend 1st Providers Choice to any medical practice considering incorporating electronic medical records.”

I have had two chiropractic EMRs within the last two years. Because I practice functional medicine, they could not provide all of the functions I needed to process a comprehensive consultation, examination and SOAP note for me. With the IMS system, I am now able to place all of my nutritional supplementation and extensive patient information in my notes without typing them. Using the touch screen is easy and quick. The software conforms to what I need. It creates templates for all kinds of cases so I don’t have to continually say the same thing over and over again. Not only did it provide an extensive neuromusculoskeletal examination with subluxations and joint fixation for the extremities, but an internal examination notes so I can examine the patient’s heart, lungs, and other organ systems. I was even able to customize my kinesiological examination along with the appropriate treatment. I don’t dread taking notes anymore. But most of all the customer support is there for me. They are friendly, courteous and willing to help in any way they can. I highly recommend 1st Provider’s Choice for your office.

“The only EMR that is specially designed for Allergists which Guarantees 100% Stimulus Incentives!”
Dr. Lenoir, M.D., Allergist Comprehensive- Allergy & Bay Area Pediatrics

“Hello my name is Sarah and I wanted to take a minute and tell you about my experience implementing a Podiatry EMR program. We researched for about 18 months and in doing so looked at over 20 different EMR programs. We recently went live with IMS through 1st Providers Choice and were completely thrilled that during the first two months of the transition of going paperless, we showed an increase in productivity even during training and the implementation process. The more we are in the software, the more we find that it has so many capabilities to be efficient for my doctors, my billing coordinator, and the front desk. Support has been good, there were a few occasions where we needed things off business hours, and even then 1st Providers Choice was there for us. We were glad we took our time and looked at several programs before making a decision.”
Sarah Reichstein, Business Manager Grand Island Foot Clinic

“We began implementing IMS in our office in April of 2011. This transition was made exceptionally easy with the help of 1st Providers Choice support staff. 1st Providers Choice support staff was quick to respond to all of our support needs during implementation and with any of our current support needs. We were uncertain and a little skeptical about bringing the billing in house because I had never done billing before. Our office was able to billing in house during this time of implementing IMS and our revenue is up and our turnaround time is quicker than ever before. We are happy that we decided to go with 1st Providers Choice and made the transition to utilizing IMS for Podiatry.”
Christine Woodson, Office Manager Sedona Foot & Ankle Specialists

“I am a solo internist practicing in Maryland and my office started using IMS in November, 2007. After initial investment of time and energy, my office has started to enjoy the fruits of our work. IMS has provided the structure and organization needed for efficient practice of internal medicine. It has streamlined my office operation from reception, to visit notes, to billing and collection. The charts are better organized and access to test reports is immediate. It has clearly reduced the labor needed for filing (the equivalent of a part-time position in my office). It gives me peace of mind knowing that I have completed most of my tasks at the end of each day. My patients seem more satisfied with the timely communication of test results and prompt refilling of their medications using the system. In addition we are provided with wonderful technical support for the installation and maintenance of the system in my office.IMS has enabled me to improve the delivery of care and to run my office better.”
Dr. Harry Li, Internal Medicine, Columbia, MD

“We chose IMS and only after a few months of using it, we were convinced that it is the best EHR system on the market. It is a true integrated solution for our practice that has allowed us to become more efficient without the headaches of interfaces.”

“The on-site training that we received was great! The trainers were very patient and helpful.”
Amanda Asthma & Allergy Sinus Center for Tuscaloosa

My bad-debt write-offs have been reduced over 90%. Pre-IMS, we had an average of $80,000 per month outstanding in charges waiting for referral. Since implementation of IMS we now regularly maintain no more than $400 per month. The Authorization tracking screen helps us in timely follow-up with the insurance companies. The billing module is great, in a way we now know what ensures timely payments. The aging reports help our billers set priority of follow-ups, making sure we work in the right areas.”
Julie Ziehm, Billing Manager Mid Michigan Cardiology Associates

“I just wanted to say that I love IMS!!! We’ve had other programs in the past but IMS is super!!!! I can bill out charges, enter patient demographics, print patient statements and read the patient ledger much easier. My favorite part of IMS is the billing part. It is so easy to read!!!! Makes my job easier!!!! Thank You!!!”
Terry Dahl Chiropractic Clinics

“I have been using EMR since 2003 but when I was really looking to go paperless I chose the software program called IMS, because of the different feature they included to get a physician closer to that goal. Because I was familiar with EMR I knew exactly what I wanted and they worked with me to customize the software with templates specific to pediatrics. One of my preferred features is the interface with the state immunization registry followed by the document management as a close second. I also like the different reports we can easily pull. The support staff is pretty attentive to our concerns and they continue to improve on all the different aspects of the software. If you really want to go paperless and be compliant with the different guidelines IMS is the one for you.”
Dr. Regine Bataille Boynton Beach, Florida

“Attain and Maintain Profitability. Our cash flow has increased by an average of 25% every month. Our A/R is easier to manage with the simple but powerful billing module in IMS which allows us to follow up, re-bill, and re-print claims with a click. Using IMS – we have been more successful than ever before.”
Steven Gest, M.D., Owner, Emeryville Occupational Medical Center, Emeryville, CA

“We’ve been using IMS for Pediatric for about six months and have gone from paper to paperless. Our efficiency has gone up 110%, our wait times for patients are cut in half and we’re able to see more patients with the same amount of staff increasing our bottom line.”
