Carolina Foot & Ankle Associates, PLLC implements advanced electronic prescription solution after success of eDoc Health hybrid document management solution

Hickory, NC – Dec. 08, 2011 – Carolina Foot & Ankle Associates, PLLC, a growing podiatry practice with three locations in the Piedmont area, recently selected to implement advanced electronic prescribing software to continue their move toward a truly paperless environment. The eDoc eRx Advanced solution is offered in conjunction with eDoc Health, the practice's hybrid document management solution from Biz Technology Solutions, Inc.

After struggling for years to find an appropriate electronic health record (EHR) system that would fit their needs, Carolina Foot & Ankle Associates selected eDoc Health in 2009 to bridge the clinical, administrative, and financial gaps that a traditional EHR could not achieve.

 “Our challenges were a bit unique. We were using a mix of an EHR system and paper charts; it was confusing for everyone. To improve efficiencies in the office, we needed to move to a better system” said Practice Administrator Julia Gold.

We used to spend a lot of time each day in search of something; a big bulk of time was spent digging charts looking for specific papers or searching for the charts themselves, and that has, on the whole, been eliminated.”  

In less than two years the practice realized a full return on investment through reduction of time spent on retrieving documents and charts, improving and automating patient flow processes, and moving the entire office toward a more paperless environment without changing their current workflow.

“The fact we could customize it to whatever fit our needs was great"
said Ms. Gold.
“We weren’t limited by what someone else wanted it to look like. Other EHR systems were huge – more geared to primary care – and aimed at addressing all conditions for all patients.  Additionally, the way they laid out things didn’t fit our work flow and our processes.”

In addition to streamlining efforts for office management, eDoc Health improved overall workflow for the providers as well. According to Dr. Robert Kukla,

“eDoc’s centralized data repository allows access to information by the entire staff. This lets me access other providers’ information and input from other departments, such as scheduling and billing, so that pertinent information is readily available. eDoc makes me much more efficient by eliminating hunting for information.”

After such a positive experience with the success of eDoc Health, Carolina Foot & Ankle Associates has chosen to expand the existing solution to include the eDoc eRx Advanced module to allow for electronic  prescription of patient medicine.

“The primary reason for moving forward is the penalty.  The second reason is improved efficiency.  Right now we are keying in each patient’s prescription information and updating it manually at each visit. Using the Rx module will allow that information to appear pre-completed for us, bypassing this time consuming task”
said Ms. Gold.

The eDoc eRx Advanced solution functions as an add-on module to eDoc Health, and is powered by DrFirst™, the leader in electronic prescribing software. With eDoc eRx Advanced, practices can streamline access to patient prescriptions, identify potential drug interactions, and provide safe and easy prescription of patient medicine.  

“Biz Technology Solutions looked at a lot of different options for electronic prescribing solutions, including the creation of our own interfaces. We selected DrFirst because of their dedication to the product, their path toward ONC certification, and their interoperability with over 200 EHRs in the marketplace”
said Brian Ellis, Business Development Coordinator with Biz Technology Solutions.

Piedmont Cardiology Associates PLLC selects eDoc Health as electronic charting solution for multi-site practice

Hickory, NC - Nov 5, 2007 -- Piedmont Cardiology Associates PLLC, a leading cardiology practice with 4 locations and multiple hospital privileges, implemented Biz Technology Solutions' document management solution, eDoc Health, in mid-2007 to increase efficiency, eliminate paper charts, and aid in disaster recovery planning for their office documents.

"We wanted to move to electronic charting and when we began looking for a system, the physicians requested that the system be intuitive and 'must not slow me down'" says Danny Morgan, Executive Director for Piedmont Cardiology Associates.  "We have 4 remote offices in surrounding counties and a 25,000 sq ft main facility and needed something that would work locally and off-site using one application."
With eDoc Health, providers can now instantly access patient charts through tablet PC or laptop while on the go.  In addition, administrative and billing staff can now access clinical and administrative documents such as EOBs, charge sheets, claim denials and readable 835 remittance quickly as well as distribute the information to third party efficiently and securely.
"We found that the system works as well in the satellites as they do in the main facility…so much so that we pulled all the desktop computers back to the main office and the teams now carry 3 tablets when going to remote locations" says Morgan.

Biz Technology Solutions, Inc provides full-service technology solutions for today's healthcare community. eDoc Health is user-friendly document management software that streamlines office work flow, delivering gains in office productivity, bottom-line savings, and revenues. By creating secure electronic version of documents, eDoc Health software turns existing labor-intensive, error-prone, paper-based processes into efficient business workflows.

"When we considered the e-DOC Health system, we found that the software was incredibly easy to learn and implement," says Morgan. Not only did the physicians learn it fast, but started using it on patients within minutes after an overview from the staff… same for the nursing staff. We would highly recommend the e-Doc system to anyone wanting to migrate to an advanced electronic chart system in an inexpensive and easy to implement fashion."
