CHMB Solutions selects Allscripts to support Californian physicians practice management needs

AllscriptsMisys Healthcare Solutions : 18 January, 2008  (New Product)
CHMB Solutions is to offer Allscripts’ Electronic Health Record (EHR) and Practice Management (PM) solution to its 500 clients and other physician practices across California, USA.
CHMB is one of the largest California-based providers of outsourced business services for physician practices, including billing, IT support and Application Service Provider (ASP) solutions such as Practice management software. By hosting Allscripts remotely at a specialised, secure data centre, CHMB provides a simple, affordable means of delivering vital patient information to caregivers and practice managers anytime and anywhere, without major investments in hardware or IT resources.

CHMB initially will provide application hosting, implementation, training and ongoing support of Allscripts for 250 physicians. Over the next two to three years, the group expects to host Allscripts for between 400 and 500 total physicians.

'Our physician practices want the latest technology delivered quickly and affordably but with world-class implementation, training and support, and this agreement with Allscripts brings them solutions that are proven and that work,' said Janet Boos, president of CHMB Solutions. 'We've always been vendor neutral but to enhance our effectiveness we've now selected a partner whose premier product offerings will help our clients improve patient care and better manage their practices.'

The Allscripts Electronic Health Record enables physicians to instantly access patient information when and where they need it - in their practice, at the hospital or while on-call at home. The web-based solution speeds and automates everyday clinical tasks such as prescribing and refilling medications, ordering and viewing tests, and documenting care.

The Allscripts Practice management solution combines sophisticated scheduling and Revenue Cycle Management tools in a single package and incorporates advanced features such as rule-based appointment scheduling, multi-resource and recurring appointment features, referral and eligibility indicators, and appointment and claims management.

According to Bob Svendsen, chief executive officer of CHMB Solutions, fewer than 10 percent of the company's clients have deployed an Electronic Health Record. 'The majority of our clients will be making an EHR decision over the next few years and we think they'll be impressed by our ability to provide a single-source solution that frees them from having to make capital investments or acquire additional technology resources,' Svendsen added.

'We're excited to partner with CHMB Solutions to deliver our electronic health record and Practice management solution to physicians across California,' said Allscripts chief executive officer Glen Tullman. 'By offering our solution via the ASP model with local and regional support and implementation, CHMB will help improve the quality of care that their physician clients deliver and ultimately lower the cost of running a medical practice.'

CHMB selected Allscripts from among 10 other vendors for the company's stability, its strong commitment to the interoperability of its solutions, and 'the quality of their leadership, which is truly dedicated to the mission of improving healthcare through information technology,' said Svendsen.
