Global Healthcare Alliance Teams with Allscripts to Provide Electronic Health Record for Physicians
HOUSTON – Global Healthcare Alliance today announced an agreement with Allscripts to become an authorized reseller of Allscripts MyWay™ Electronic Health Record (EHR) for physicians.
The value-added agreement offers additional growth opportunities for both companies as it represents an important addition to Global’s revenue cycle management services which help practices improve profitability. Allscripts MyWay is an ONC-ATCB certified EHR that helps independent and small physician practices improve the quality, safety and efficiency of their patient services. Physicians who adopt an ONC-ATCB certified EHR and demonstrate its “meaningful use” under the federal HITECH Act can qualify for significant financial incentives.
According to John Adams, president and CEO of Global Healthcare Alliance, “As a leading provider of revenue cycle management services, we understand the importance of delivering sound technology and superior service to physician practices. We partnered with Allscripts because its industry-leading EHR solutions are proven, flexible and easy to use. We believe the integration between MyWay and globalcentaraSM, our proprietary practice management system, will appeal greatly to practices looking to operate more efficiently and ultimately more profitably. We’re excited to be a single resource to help these practices move forward.”
Designed specifically to meet the needs of small physician practices, the Allscripts MyWay EHR is available via Software as a Service (SaaS) over the Internet or as an on-premise application installed on a server. The web-based SaaS approach provides additional flexibility by enabling physician practices to avoid many upfront and ongoing expenses tied to equipment, IT personnel and operations.
“To qualify for the maximum amount of federal incentives under HITECH, physicians must have an electronic health record in place and must be using it in their everyday practice as soon as possible,” said Kelley Schudy, Vice President of Channel for Allscripts. “We are pleased to team with Global Healthcare Alliance in helping to provide physicians with a practical, cost-effective EHR solution from a trusted partner.”
