Meditab’s IMS Awarded 5-Star Ranking by Top EMR Evaluation Experts-the AC Group
Choosing the best software to run your practice is an important decision.
At Meditab, we have created a top-of-the-line integrated emr, practice management, and billing solution to handle all your practice’s needs.
Meditab’s IMS comes pre-loaded with one of the largest template databases available for your unique specialty, which can easily be customized to individual preferences.
Now, to help providers make the most informed decisions, the AC Group confirms these facts having given the IMS solution, and Meditab as a company, the combined rating of 5-stars, their highest available.
In the October, 2009 report titled, “Extensive Evaluations Rank Top Practice Management and EHR Applications,” 175 vendors were evaluated by the AC Group on a range of in-depth criteria.
Meditab’s IMS was rated 5-stars when evaluated for overall practice management and EHR functionality, ease-of-use, company viability, and end-user satisfaction (p.71).
Only 12 of the other 175 vendors received this rating; many of which focus primarily on hospitals or very large practices.
AC Group Ranking of Meditab’s IMS:
Practice Management functionality (5 out of 5 stars)
EMR/EHR functionality (5 out of 5 stars)
Ease-of-Use (5 out of 5 stars)
Company Viability (5 out of 5 stars)
End-User Satisfaction (5 out of 5 stars)
These cumulative ratings also take into account Meditab’s e-prescribing functionality, EMR-lite functionality, and preparedness for Integrated Community Electronic Health Records (ICE) (p.91).
“ICE products are designed for community systems, including hospitals, MSOs, and IPAs where there is a desire to create a community integrated patient record no matter where the patient is treated” (p.16).
According to the AC Group report, the benefits of an “ICE”-ready solution are
- Data is entered once and can populate multiple databases
- Patients have complete control over dissemination of clinical data per HIPAA rules
- 92% reduction in duplicate data entry
- 74% reduction in overall data entry time
- 19% reduction in clinical testing
- 32% reduction in referral tracking activities
