MIAMI, Jan. 29, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- The Dade County Medical Association (DCMA) has selected HealthFusion, Inc., provider of top-ranked MediTouch® EHR software, as a Vendor of Choice for electronic health records (EHRs). The DCMA, the largest county medical association in Florida, is introducing HealthFusion's MediTouch to its more than 1,000 physician members looking to implement or upgrade EHRs in their practices and avoid Medicare penalties.

"Selecting the right EHR is critical for our physicians to improve the daily practice of medicine, including workflow and quality of care," said Patricia Handler, Executive Vice President of the DCMA. "HealthFusion has over 23,000 users, and provides an affordable, cloud-based electronic health record solution created by doctors, for doctors, and we are impressed with MediTouch because of its ease of use, affordable cost, and excellent customer support."

MediTouch is an EHR conceived by physicians for physicians and designed for practices of all sizes. The leading edge software is a total medical software solution with EHR, Practice Management, Clearinghouse and a Patient Portal. The system is cloud-based and works with tablets, PCs, and smart phones. 

MediTouch EHR was recently ranked as a Top 3 Electronic Health Record (EHR) for Clinical Quality and Support in the Medical Economics' National Provider Survey. Of those Top 3 EHRs, MediTouch is unique because it is the only one to offer full functionality on the Apple iPad. The Medical Economics National Provider Survey is a critical EHR ranking study because it asked thousands of physicians to rate their systems, on a scale of 0 to 10, in the key areas that matter most to them.

"Physicians have expressed a strong preference for integrated medical software they can use on a tablet and maintain patient eye contact and interaction while charting," said Dr. Sol Lizerbram, Chairman of HealthFusion. "HealthFusion provides full EHR functionality on the iPad or other tablet, with a completely integrated practice management system, clearinghouse, and patient portal. In addition, MediTouch includes groundbreaking features for managing CMS programs such as Chronic Care Management, Medicare Advantage, PQRS and Meaningful Use, which we are proud to provide for the DCMA."
