WRS Health Releases New EHR and Practice Management Solutions For Rheumatology Practices

GOSHEN, N.Y. (January 20, 2015) – WRS Health, a leading provider of cloud-based integrated electronic medical record and practice management solutions, announced today a suite of cloud-based EHR, practice management, and patient communication services designed specifically for Rheumatology practices.

"WRS Health offers award-winning EHR software for a number of medical and surgical specialties,” said Lawrence Gordon, MD, founder and CEO of WRS Health. “Rheumatologists have unique EHR needs and can utilize our customizable templates, patient portal, marketing services and a host of other business solutions to best optimize their practices."

WRS Health Rheumatology EHR comes with Rheumatology specific content already loaded in the encounter notes. When you complete a chart for Scoliosis, Rheumatoid Arthritis, or Lyme Disease, intelligent templates enable you to quickly chart out the encounter with one-click. WRS Health Rheumatology EHR has a full library of templates that can be incorporated into your practice and edited to suit your practice style. Lab Reports and Images can even be uploaded directly into the WRS Health Rheumatology EHR. There is an interface within WRS that allows for Arthritis Exams, Muscle Pain Exams and Infusion Management. All the specialty specific content in the WRS Health Rheumatology EHR has been created and reviewed by practicing Rheumatologists.

The surgery scheduling workflow module in the WRS Health Rheumatology EHR was built to handle preoperative, peri-operative and postoperative charting, billing and scheduling functions as well as to provide a centralized location to view and manage surgical cases. The Surgical Scheduling queue within the Rheumatology Surgery EHR is divided into four sections: preoperative management, peri-operative management, postoperative and completed surgical workflow.

When you are charting encounters that require additional or special documentation, we have engineered a smooth workflow for the busy Rheumatology office. Questionnaires and other types of documentation can be filled out by the patient in the waiting room with the WRS Digital Pen. The data from these patient forms then flows seamlessly into your note without requiring the user to re-key data from the patient forms. We make this available to you in a variety of types of patient encounters. If you have your own Rheumatology customized forms that you developed, we are able to take your own forms and have the data flow into the EHR with the WRS Digital Pen.

All your data can sit on one platform without the need to export or import, or cut and paste data or documents. When you perform procedures, we have incorporated the standard content to enable quick charting and billing of these common in-office procedures.

The WRS Rheumatology Health Maintenance EHR module allows you to set up different alerts, whether it is monthly, weekly or daily, in order to mitigate the risks associated with Rheumatoid Arthritis, Scoliosis and Lyme Disease. You can monitor your patients' vital signs and health maintenance.  You can setup your own alerts for each patient. Our integrated patient portal allows for secure communication between you and your patients, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Also, in the WRS Rheumatology Health Medical Management System, you can find your patients' complete drug history. This system allows you to view a detailed list of previous medications prescribed to your patient.  If your patient does not report a certain drug they are using/have used, you can view the list of medications prescribed from participating pharmacies and select it to show up in 'current medications.' Additionally, the new WRS Health Rheumatology EHR Workflow System provides a Consent Management feature. The cloud-based EMR system also includes automatic appointment reminders and instructions sent via phone/email/text. The Order Tracking system tracks all orders issued from the WRS Health Rheumatology EHR electronically through the entire order life-cycle, helping relieve the burden of tracking orders that have not been obtained by the patient or have not been received by the office.

Because this is all performed electronically the results are integrated with the patient's chart. No more attaching paper faxes to paper charts and placing them in a stack on your desk to review at the end of the day. Find results quickly, efficiently and view them online.

WRS Health Rheumatology EHR makes sure proper and complete reimbursement is received for all the practice services provided. Additionally, the WRS Health Rheumatology EHR provides automatic eligibility checking of your patients, saving time and money. Based upon the scheduled appointment date all patients are automatically checked for up-to-date insurance and demographic data. This is accomplished by electronic connections to insurance companies with automatic messages sent starting 72 hours before the appointments.
