DENVER, June 9, 2016 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- MEDfx and Falcon Physician have partnered to provide a standards-based Electronic Health Record (EHR), Practice Management (PM) and Revenue Cycle Management system to fully automate a nephrology practice.
Working to serve the specific needs of nephrologists, the Falcon Physician product suite integrates with the dialysis center and doctor's office to manage kidney patients' health records from chronic kidney disease (CKD) through end stage renal disease (ESRD) and can be accessed wherever there is internet access.
A standards-based EHR-PM solution is a foundational component that automates the care-delivery process on patients when they visit the practice and transition to other providers in the community.
Through its partnership with MEDfx, Falcon Physician is well-positioned to manage patient care through the full care-delivery process. Falcon Physician EHR is a KLAS leading and Meaningful Use-certified solution that automates the front office, clinical office and back office for a practice.
"Falcon Physician's partnership with MEDfx allows us to offer our nephrologists a complete solution to manage the practices," said Kari Holloway, vice president of Falcon Physician. "Having physicians on a singular system will help us provide the continuity of care across all points of care, ultimately improving patient care."
Sharing patient data and integrating clinical workflows are critical in supporting providers in the care delivery process. Connecting providers who care for patients creates a network for collaborative care enabling the team to deliver the most cost-effective treatment plans and best practices, increasing patients' safety and quality of care.
"We're very excited to announce our partnership with Falcon Physician and introduce our combined solution to the marketplace," said Colin Barry, CEO of Medfx. "Both organizations are tightly aligned in vision to enhance the care-delivery process in support of quality and safety of patient care. Beyond the user workflow experience, MEDfx has long prided and defined itself based upon delivering the highest customer support. We have a very longstanding user base of practices we proudly serve. We understand their goals deeply and are focused on delivering a more seamless user experience as their patients transition within the practice and for follow-up care."
