ManagementPlus Contributes $140,000 in EHR Software to People’s Health Clinic in Park City

December 29th, 2011

More than 9,000 office visits to the People’s Health Clinic (PHC) in Park City, Utah, in 2012 will use the latest in Electronic Health Record (EHR) technology, thanks to a holiday donation of $140,000 in practice management software from ManagementPlus. ManagementPlus’ EHR 5.0 software will now assist the clinic’s staff and volunteer doctors in providing care to uninsured patients in Utah’s Summit and Wasatch counties.

Under executive director Nann Worel, The People’s Health Clinic will use the software to further ensure accurate and excellent care with alerts and reminders the software provides during each patient contact. The increased ability to gather and submit summary information on patients will make it easier for PHC to apply for and receive additional grant funding in the future.

Funding is critical, as the clinic’s traffic is steadily increasing due to rising unemployment and skyrocketing insurance costs, according to Worel. The clinic’s traffic increased from 700 visits in 2007 to more than 7,000 visits in 2010.

Dr. John Hanrahan, PHC founder and one of the two staff doctors, said, “We’re seeing more people each year who’ve lost their health insurance or are unable to get insurance due to being seasonal or temporary workers or working multiple part time jobs. The complexity of care is also increasing. This software will be especially beneficial for ensuring continuity of care when multiple volunteers and staff work with patients. This is a huge issue, and one of the biggest benefits the EHR system provides. ManagementPlus is perfect for meeting this kind of need.”

“I am pleased to join with all of our employees to help this tremendous clinic provide excellent care for the growing base of individuals in need in these two counties,” said Christine Archibald, ManagementPlus founder and CEO.

Aprima Electronic Health Record Software Powers San Francisco Free Clinic

October 20th, 2010

Aprima Medical Software, a leading developer of electronic health record (EHR), practice management (PM) and revenue cycle management (RCM) solutions for medical practices, today announced that its Aprima EHR application is now powering the San Francisco Free Clinic, a primary care services facility that provides free, accessible medical treatment to individuals without health insurance.

The clinic’s seven part-time physicians, as well as 120 local doctors who donate two visits per year to the clinic will all have access to Aprima’s EHR. The San Francisco Free Clinic handles over 7,000 patient visits annually. The clinic provides full medical exams and primary care services in addition to treating the full range of acute and chronic illnesses for people with no health insurance.

“The power of Aprima’s EHR lies in the fact that it is customizable to physicians’ specific needs,” said Dr. Richard Gibbs, Founder and Executive Director of San Francisco Free Clinic. “With multiple doctors donating their time to the clinic each year and a consistent influx of patients daily, we needed to ensure that each doctor would be able to adapt easily to the EHR in the midst of a high volume of patient visits. Aprima’s EHR will provide a smooth transition for our doctors, allowing us to focus on continuing to provide a high quality of patient care to the community.”

In addition to providing free medical services, San Francisco Free Clinic is dedicated to offering educational opportunities for future medical practitioners. Each year the clinic hosts over 100 residents and interns from esteemed medical institutions including Yale University School of Medicine, University of Southern California (USC), California Pacific Medical Center and University of California, San Francisco (UCSF). During their time at the clinic, these medical professionals will receive hands-on training on and use of Aprima’s EHR solution.

“Aprima Medical Software began in the Bay Area and we believe in giving back to the community that fostered our beginnings,” said Michael Nissenbaum, CEO and President of Aprima. “Aprima is proud to make this significant step in not only improving healthcare for the thousands of uninsured in San Francisco, but aiding in the teaching of America’s brightest young physicians.”

Aprima’s template-free, content rich EHR software enables providers to follow their own protocols. Its adaptive learning feature speeds adoption and deployment, a critical capability as medical practices seek to meet “Meaningful Use” standards for government stimulus fund reimbursements. Furthermore, as a single EHR + PM application built on a single database, Aprima affords users with the fastest access to clinical and financial data. AprimaRCM addresses practices’ needs for seasoned financial expertise by delivering insight that helps practices collect every dollar they earn. Aprima’s licensing plans make sense for everyone from a solo rural practitioner to a multi-specialty urban group.
