Waiting Room Solutions Internal Medicine Electronic Health Record (EHR) and Practice Management System (PM) has been selected by Medical Pavilion Walk-in Clinic for its web-based accessibility and its ability to improve practice efficiency.

Aiming to increase accessibility to practice information and records, Medical Pavilion Walk-in Clinic has selected to implement the Waiting Room Solutions Internal Medicine EHR and PM. The web-based system of the WRS internal medicine-specific EHR and PM will expand access, while also increasing efficiency of both clinical and business functions.

Goshen, New York — Waiting Room Solutions® (WRS) (www.waitingroomsolutions.com), a leading web-based EHR and PM provider, announced today that Medical Pavilion Walk-in Clinic has chosen the Waiting Room Solutions Internal Medicine Electronic Health Record (EHR) and Practice Management System (PM) for its internal medicine practice.

Medical Pavilion Walk-in Clinic has operated in Port Charlotte, FL for over twenty-six years. David S. Ballestas, MD, PA is the sole provider of the practice, which specializes in internal medicine. Medical Pavilion Walk-in Clinic previously used another software solution for its practice management, but after months of searching, decided that the Waiting Room Solutions software best fits its practice needs.

Patient Registration for EHRThe Waiting Room Solution Internal Medicine Specialty EHR and PM was designed to ensure that it has all of the features necessary to successfully run an internal medicine practice. The system contains internal medicine templates and comprehensive clinical content for quick charting. The WRS software also contains e-prescribing, patient portal, order tracking, and PQRI incentive reporting capabilities. Lastly, the internal medicine software offers EKG, PFT and laboratory device integration, and lab interfaces with Quest and Labcorp, among others. Together, these features fulfill the workflow, information, clinical and business needs of an internal medicine practice.

Through the use of the Waiting Room Solutions PM and EHR for internal medicine, Medical Pavilion Walk-in Clinic will fulfill its main objectives of increasing information accessibility and adding efficiency to daily billing and claims. The practice wants clinical information to be available to any physician at any time or location, and the electronic, web-based nature of the WRS system ensures this access. The electronic patient files can hold the review of systems, demographic, past medical history, consent to treat, privacy policy and assignment of benefits forms that the practice requires, as well as copies of photo ID and insurance cards. Patient charting will be further simplified through the use of templates and the Dragon Medical voice recognition software. This solution allows physicians to efficiently navigate and dictate medical information and treatment plans directly into patients’ electronic records. Dragon Medical 11 is up to 99% accurate, and includes medical vocabularies covering nearly 80 medical specialties and subspecialties. In terms of billing and claims, the WRS auto-eligibility process can be used to assess insurance coverage and co-pay requirements instantly, which is especially relevant due to practice’s walk-in nature. The WRS incoming and outgoing fax queues will also be crucial for the practice since labs and diagnostic centers can fax results into the queue, which will then be placed directly into the appropriate patient records. As an additional incentive to all of these features, Waiting Room Solutions EHR and PM sets the practice up to meet the “meaningful use” criteria as outlined by the Health and Human Services (HHS) and the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS). Meeting these requirements will allow the practice to be eligible for the American Reinvestment and Recovery Act (ARRA) stimulus package incentive program.

“We are glad that Medical Pavilion Walk-in Clinic has chosen the Waiting Room Solutions EHR and PM,” said Lawrence Gordon, MD, founder and CEO of Waiting Room Solutions. “The increased accessibility offered by our web-based system will benefit both the patients and the physicians, and we believe that the practice will be very pleased with this improved connectivity.”
