MAKE SURE YOU PLACE FIRST, WITH THE ENCOUNTERPRO PEDIATRIC EMR WORKFLOW SYSTEM



FOURTEEN NATIONAL AWARDS
(PLUS BEST IN GEORGIA)

We've won a lot of awards over the years. But the awards we are most proud of are our customers' awards. For the first three years in a row the HIMSS Davies Award for excellence in ambulatory primary care went to Drs. Cooper (Pediatrics), Dr. Gonzalzles (Pediatrics), and Dr. Harris (Obstetrics, Gynecology, and Family Medicine). Perhaps the most compelling account of how the EncounterPRO Pediatric EMR Workflow System can transform a pediatric medical practice is Dr. Blum's EHRScope article "What Makes a Great Pediatric EHR?":

"One Georgia pediatrician, a winner of the HIMSS Davies Ambulatory Care Award of Excellence for his use of the EncounterPRO EHR, shows his attentiveness using one hand to steady an energetic child and the other hand to enter data and orders out of the corner of his eye, facilitated by large colorful buttons. A workflow engine pushes screens in preprogrammed sequences so he is not distracted by screen-to-screen navigation. His focus remains uninterrupted and attentive to the concerned parent."

"A Chicago pediatrician, who also won the HIMSS Davies Ambulatory Care Award using the EncounterPRO EHR, notes that its customizable workflow has made his office so much more efficient that he can see more patients and spend more time with each patient. Efficiency allows more time to be available to parents and patients."

TESTIMONIALS

"Waiting times have been dramatically reduced every step of the way—not just the waiting room time. Parents are happier because going to the doctor no longer takes two hours out of their already overcrowded schedule. I can see more kids per hour with an actual increase in preventive services like screenings and vaccines—thus improving healthcare and increasing revenue at the same time." Jeffrey D. Cooper MD Pediatrician EncounterPRO User Since 1995 (and HIMSS Davies Award Winner)

"It's really helped my lifestyle. I'm working three and a half days a week, I used to work seven days a week. So it's really made life much easier, and the staff love it!" Armand Gonzalzles MD Pediatrician EncounterPRO User Since 1999 (and HIMSS Davies Award Winner)
"The EMR user interface is akin to the touch screen-oriented systems in restaurants: one screen at a time, with only the most relevant data displayed and options presented (although, of course, a user can always jump out of a particular screen sequence to accomplish an arbitrary task), and the sequences can be tweaked through the workflow management to make such occurrences infrequent...The workflow plans are tailored for each type of patient seen in the office (obstetrics, gynecologic, annual exams, family practice) assuring that key elements of the present illness, history and physical are addressed and documented. Work plans contain required laboratory tests for specific conditions, assuring that key tests are not forgotten." Jeffrey Harris MD Obstetrics Gynecology and Family Practice EncounterPRO User Since 2003 (and HIMSS Davies Award Winner)
"Many pediatricians operate with narrow profit margins. Reducing costs, capturing charges correctly, and increasing the number of encounters can increase profit. If a pediatrician cannot chart a routine otitis media encounter from start to finish in 30 seconds, the EHR will slow him or her down and reduce profit. The EncounterPRO EHR’s workflow engine essentially pushes tasks to users as fast as they can accomplish them. However, pediatric offices accomplish tasks in many different orders, so the workflow definitions can be changed to accommodate a specific pediatric group preference." Michael Blum, DO, Pediatrician EncounterPRO User Since 2004
"It has allowed our physicians to increase the number of patients they see in a day...And it has given the physicians that were already high-volume the opportunity to spend a little more time with their patients and be more personable." Dee McGee, Pediatric Practice Manager EncounterPRO User Since 1995
"The payroll savings and increase in collections repaid our total investment in 18 months." Allen R. Carter Jr., Business Manager, Family Medicine EncounterPRO User Since 2000
"We have seen incredible results as to the increase in patient volume we can handle." Patricia Hernandez, Clinic Administrator, OB/GYN Practice EncounterPRO User Since 2000
"At a time when physicians are being squeezed by cost constraints of record proportions while trying to continue to provide quality care, it is absolutely imperative that you look for a system that delivers security, cost efficiencies, and unparalleled quality of care in a new way—EncounterPro is that system." John Ivan Sutter MD Pediatrician EncounterPRO User Since 2000
"One Monday in the winter we had only two of our five doctors in the office. Then my partner was stuck at the hospital and I was left by myself. At the end of a long day I had seen 79 patients! I wasn’t even frazzled." Karen Kamachi MD Pediatrician, EncounterPRO User Since 2000
"My office went live 2 days ago and it's unbelievable! For the first time in my nearly 15 years in pediatric practice I left my office with all my charts and notations completed for the day...Thank you so much for giving me a life again!" Angela D. Hunt MD Pediatrician EncounterPRO User Since 2001
"When I selected EncounterPRO, the biggest motivating factor was the concept of having an office screen that displays the necessary patient activities. This is similar to the ER board that many of us are familiar with that lists where each patient is and what procedure needs to be done next. In a procedure-oriented practice like ophthalmology, the efficiency from this tool is tremendous. The idea of telling staff what to do silently without disruption took me over the top. Features like this can eliminate the need for signaling lights or flags on exam room doors. The final big feature is workflow. Essentially, the program automatically sequences through your documentation depending upon the type of exam you have chosen." Phelgar Washington MD Ophthalmology EncounterPRO User Since 2001
