MedX12 Integrates Noteworthy Medical Systems Products, including NetPracticeEHRweb™ and NetPracticePM™, into its Software Suite Designed to Take Physician Practices Paperless
Revenue Cycle Management and Related Web Services Fit US President Obama’s Initiatives Regarding Healthcare IT
August 7, 2009—(Louisville, Ky.)—MedX12, a privately-held healthcare software solution provider serving the US, has affiliated with Cleveland-based Noteworthy Medical Systems, Inc. as a Sales and Service Partner to expand the MedX12 software suite of products designed to take physician practices paperless. Key MedX12 web-based products in physician practice management and electronic medical records will now be powered by Noteworthy, including MedX12’s NetPracticePM™ and MedX12’s NetPracticeEHRweb™. NetPracticeEHRweb’s capabilities allow for connections between hospitals, clinics, pharmacies and labs, interfacing within existing systems.
“Given President Obama’s incentives to physician practices to lower healthcare costs and improve patient care through electronic medical records, we expanded our offerings with the highest level of healthcare IT (HCIT) available on the market today,” said Joe Sostarich, CEO of MedX12. To help drive the adoption of electronic health records by 2015, the federal government is investing $33 billion in incentives to providers under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009. To gain the maximum amount of incentives, providers must have a qualifying records system in meaningful use by 2011. In addition to incentives, the legislation specifies increasing financial penalties for physician practices that have not adopted certified electronic systems, Sostarich indicated.
Since its launch in 2006, MedX12 has entered product categories that serve to enhance practice performance and patient care through back-end software solutions to the physician practice. “The MedX12 modular approach allows providers to select specific applications to address specific issues, or bundle applications to create a more comprehensive solution. The end-to-end SaaS (software-as-a-service) model minimizes the economic risk to the provider to convert to a new system,” Sostarich pointed out. Additional new product offerings in the suite will include: MedX12’s NetPracticeRESULTS™, a reports and results management tool; MedX12’s NetPracticeERX™, a streamlined prescription solution; and MedX12’s WebPractice secure patient web portal enabling online patient account transactions; as well as MedX12’s NetPracticePM Practice Management Software.
“We are delighted that MedX12 has become a Noteworthy Sales and Service Partner and anticipate exciting growth for both companies,“ said Mark Conner, vice president of channel sales for Noteworthy Medical Systems, Inc. “MedX12’s ability to train on and service this cutting-edge software will make the adoption decision that much easier for their existing local clients and those to come.”
Louisville-based MedX12 is also moving to bring a Connected Care Network, powered by Noteworthy’s NetPractice MedicalHub™, to Kentucky communities and beyond. The core of the solution allows healthcare data providers including hospitals, labs, radiology, pharmacies and more to share, send and receive critical clinical data with providers and patients. The MedicalHub provides an electronic Master Patient Index (EMPI), common clinical vocabulary, community health record, integration engine, security and authorization suite, and provider-to-provider and provider-to-data provider communications.
MedX12 recently moved into new offices at 10200 Forest Green Blvd., Suite LL in Louisville, Ky. A grand opening is planned for late August.
