WALTHAM, Mass., Sept. 15, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Henry Schein Medical Systems, Inc., developers of MicroMD Practice Management and Electronic Health Records (EHR) and a subsidiary of Henry Schein, Inc., announced today its relationship with Forerun, Inc., to sell, implement and support a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS)-based charting solution. The solution, exclusively distributed by Henry Schein as of October 2016, will help clinicians improve workflow efficiencies as a result of accelerating the administrative documentation of a patient's visit.
When patient information is entered into MicroMD's practice management software, the SaaS solution quickly captures the insurance provider and primary care physician's name, as well as check-in time. When checking out of the software at the end of a visit, charges from the visit are sent back to MicroMD and a claim is generated.
"We are excited to partner with Forerun to provide a native cloud SaaS solution that will expedite the documentation of patient charting in the primary, specialty and urgent care settings," said Heather Ansell, General Manager, Henry Schein Medical Systems. "Forerun's expertise in the development of emergency medical and urgent care EHR designs, coupled with Henry Schein Medical System's leading practice management technologies and knowledge of the ambulatory clinical space, will allow us to provide technology positioned to bring speed and agility."
The Forerun EHR solution was developed by physicians to help capture, prioritize and disseminate patient information in the urgent care and ambulatory market similar to the charting tools used by top providers in the ER (Emergency room) environment.
"Henry Schein Medical Systems is an excellent partner for Forerun as we look to expand the functionality of our solutions for the benefit of enabling customers to deliver more efficient, 'smarter care,'" said Ken Wolfe, CEO of Forerun. "Bringing together Forerun's expertise in optimizing day-to-day operations with fast charting technology and MicroMD's development of practice management solutions, we can deliver a complete and robust solution for the ambulatory market and help practitioners operate a more efficient practice so they can focus on providing quality patient care."
