Visionary Medical Systems has been selected by Choice HealthCare and Georgia's Largest FQHCs as their EMR / PM solution.
June 30, 2006 Health News(PRLEAP.COM) Tampa, FL - June 2006 - Visionary Medical Systems, Inc. (VMS) announced today that it is currently in the implementation process of its DREAM Electronic Health Record (EHR) and Disease Management software with Choice HealthCare, LLC. The system is being deployed at three (3) of Georgia's largest Federally Qualified Health Center's (FQHC) with additional sites in preparation. When completed it is expected that the VMS solution will support 100+ physicians and ancillary providers in the Choice network.
After an exhaustive national search and evaluation, Visionary Medical Systems was selected for a statewide roll-out of software technology and managed care services to the Choice Healthcare network of primary care physicians. "We are extremely excited about offering Visionary's unique EHR and managed care solution to our affiliate physicians," said Dr. Brooks of Choice. "With many thousands of members in our network, this is a massive undertaking; but the rewards in improved quality of care for patients and improved financial performance for those physicians are enormous and well worth the effort. We believe that VMS's service and technology is uniquely qualified to provide the premier solution for community health centers across the Country."
The Visionary software solution allows Choice Healthcare providers to streamline and deliver safe, uniform and cost effective care to Georgia's urban and rural population. Components include medical record charting and documentation, clinical decision support, prescriptions, lab orders and retrieval, billing, scheduling and electronic disease management functions.
Choice Healthcare partnered with the Georgia FQHCs providing connectivity among the clinics and enabling each center to provide the highest quality of care to the Georgia Medicaid population. "From the outset, we were committed to technology and invested heavily in our research prior to purchase. Visionary provided not only the EHR & PM functionality common to most top tier vendors, but its management has parleyed their strong managed care background into a Disease Management module specific for FQHC's that does not exist elsewhere", said Dr. David Williams, Choice Healthcare, CEO.
Visionary's unique Disease Management system gives Choice true point-of-care capabilities through chronic disease tracking, alerts and reporting mechanisms directly from the EHR. In this age of Pay for Performance initiatives the DM reporting will be captured to meet payor specifics and improve patient care dramatically.
"Choice is unique in its approach to service delivery improvement through technology. Our common goals of providing for uniform, quality care make the partnership attractive for both parties. We look forward to growing with their membership", noted Jason Patchen, Visionary Medical Systems, Inc., CEO.
Visionary's software solution was selected based on its ease-of-use along with DREAM EHR's extensive customization to meet the exclusive FQHC highly diversified needs. The Visionary team has tailored hands-on training sessions with the Choice staff for optimal implementation in a timely, constructive fashion.
