GOSHEN, N.Y. (August 5, 2014) – WRS Health, a leading provider of Health IT Platforms for medical practices, announced today that otolaryngologist Shaista A. Husain M.D. has selected ENT-CloudSM as her Otolaryngology EMR and practice management platform.

Shaista Husain, M.D. is a board certified Otolaryngologist, Head and Neck, Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeon based in Houston Texas. Dr. Husain has developed the technical and clinical skills required in the diagnosis, treatment, and management of diseases and disorders of the Head and Neck.

In her ENT practice, Dr. Husain spends about 50% of her time treating patients with sinus diseases, sleep apnea, and voice disorders. Many of her patients with chronic sinusitis, allergic rhinitis, and otitis media also show signs of nasal allergies. Dr. Husain has chosen WRS Health for its integrated cloud-based suite of services.

Dr. Husain said, “As an otolaryngologist, I need a platform that helps me with all aspects of my specialty. The WRS Health ENT-CloudSM EMR and practice management platform was designed specifically to meet the needs of ENT professionals.”

“WRS Health offers award-winning Health IT Platforms for a number of medical specialties,” said Lawrence Gordon, MD, founder and CEO of WRS Health. “We’re pleased to work with physicians like Dr. Husain who see the long-term benefits and value our full-service practice management software brings to her practice.”

The WRS Health powered ENT-CloudSM, was designed specifically to meet the needs of Otolaryngologists. Our platform integrates every aspect of your head and neck practice. We can take you from appointment scheduling through revenue cycle management without any disruptions to your practice. The result: Increased efficiencies and ensuring you get paid for the services you perform.

ENT-CloudSM is pre-loaded with the content used by Otolaryngologists and all Ear, Nose, and Throat sub-specialties. Content is organized to enable you to chart efficiently. For example, an ENT Normal Review of System can be charted with just one click.

Since Otolaryngologists have varying charting needs and styles, we provide our 6-Tier Customization Engine. It enables you to quickly establish your own library of templates that precisely match your charting preferences.

Charting routine to complex encounters is simplified with our platform.  For example, when you complete a chart for Adenoiditis, Cerumen Impaction, or a Laryngeal Video Stroboscope, intelligent templates enable you to quickly chart out the encounter with one-click. ENT-CloudSM has a full library of ENT templates that can be incorporated into your practice and edited to suit your practice style. All of the content in ENT-CloudSM has been developed and reviewed by practicing Otolaryngologists.

For charting encounters that require additional or special documentation, WRS Health has engineered a smooth workflow for the otolaryngology office with a specially designed digital pen. With our innovative digital pen technology, providers or patients merely write their information and data is immediately transmitted directly to the EHR. There is no need to spend time scanning or manually entering data. Some of our forms include: ENT Vertigo, Dizziness questionnaire with data, Vestibular evaluation form, SNOT-20 questionnaire, Epworth Sleepiness Scale, Initial Patient intake form as well as other ENT-specific patient forms and content.

The surgery scheduling workflow module in ENT-CloudSM was built to handle preoperative, perioperative and postoperative charting, billing, and scheduling functions a busy Head and Neck practice. The Surgical Scheduling queue within ENT-CloudSM is divided into four sections: preoperative management, peri-operative management, postoperative and completed surgical workflow.

ENT-CloudSM assures proper and complete reimbursement for all the services your Otolaryngology practice provides. Seamless charge entry relieves the provider, front desk and billing office of this laborious process and makes it automatic and systematized. When charting an ENT procedure, such as a Fiber Optic Laryngoscopy the charge seamlessly flows to the claim for submission without the need for re-keying performed procedures on your claims. Superbills and dual entry of data are eliminated.

The ENT Surgery Workflow Queue tracks the global period so that payments for unrelated services during the global period aren't forfeited. Your pre-authorized CPT codes are automatically queued for claim submission on the date of surgery. No charges are lost in the “hand-off.”
