The most significant update of version 3.0 is that it can now interface with other office systems that expand the functionality of a physician’s practice – including practice management systems, billing companies, clearing houses, lab systems and e-prescribing systems. Additional enhancements include: - Upgrading the enterprise scheduling functionality to allow a physician to manage both outpatient and in-patient functions. - Enhancement of the billing workflow that allows billing experts to review and queue charges before processing. - A new template system of standard medical forms to help physicians collect patient information and reduce the paper flow in the office. “Our product has been and continues to be designed for scalability, by growing with a physician’s practice as they add on new doctors, being able to capture more of the physician’s practice by building more functionality into the product and by enabling pMD to grow in a balanced strategic approach that does not take away from our service to the customers,” said Philippe d’Offay, Founder of pMD. “This latest version enables a practice to run their entire office, from point-of-care through billing submission. This means that any practice that uses an outside billing company can now use our product to run their entire practice and communicate electronically with their billing company. For practices that already have a billing system, they can now go paperless by adding pMD to their present system.”
The release of Version 3.0 coincides with record client growth for pMD in 2004, including retention of 95% of physician practices and marking its third year of increased growth. The momentum continues for pMD in 2005, with a profitable first quarter projected, making it one of only a few select profitable companies in the healthcare software industry.
Headquartered in Atlanta, pMD develops wireless applications that help physicians streamline and automate their entire practice from point-of-care through reimbursement. The company was started in 1999 to address mobile physicians' needs for an effective alternative to their paper-based method for recording patient encounter information. pMD’s automated charge capture solution adheres to the highest standards for performance, security and reliability.
