Problem



Dr. Markle and Hinshaw’s practice was experiencing financial losses due to Medical Billing Issues in their old software. They had been using the EHR, eMD since 2004. According to Dr Hinshaw – “We lost literally tens of thousands of dollars during the 14 years we used it because the limited number of local potential employees who “knew” the system”. The other major problems they encountered was additional monthly fees for add-ons such as e-prescribing as they became available. Apart from this, the ongoing training offered by the EHR was inconsistent leaving many questions unanswered. These experiences forced Dr Hinshaw to look for a new EHR – one that provided an Integrated Solution, was simple to use and could be accessible on your finger-tips.
