Digital technology has radically transformed the world – smartphones, tablets, and web-enabled devices that have turned our daily lives and the way we communicate. Health information can be created and managed by authorized providers in a digital format capable of being shared with other providers across more than one healthcare organization. The EHR industry is currently looking at usability and interoperability seriously as the initial phases of incentive-based purchase and deployment are passed by. Through the userbase of office based providers using the EHR has increased multi-folds, the usability and interoperability still remain as issues that need resolution.

The usability is a very important aspect that affects the provider efficiency and interoperability in true sense with other EHRs and healthcare systems is still a far cry that will need more time to become a reality. CMS (Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services) seems to be taking interest in the interoperability issue, and that is a good sign. One such company, Green Apples MedSystems is one of the pioneers in their Easy-to-Use EHR products that capture all the aspects of patient data, and thereby reducing time and effort, to eliminate the need to store paper records. Green Apples MedSystems, a West Virginia based technology Products Company, makes and sells products for the US Health Sector. Company’s flagship software product, Medgre V3.0, is certified as ONC-HIT in 2014 as a Complete EHR for office based providers. With Medgre, the time spent on the software per patient is cut down, thereby freeing up the physician’s time, which can be spent with the patients thus improving their satisfaction quotient.

Medgre EHR’s main focus is always on Ease-of-Use, which has along with its core EHR, the other necessary components like Practice Management, and Billing Software. Medgre captures and maintains information from all clinicians involved in a patient’s care.

The company also offers end-to-end Revenue Cycle Management (RCM) solution to take care of clinic’s billing service needs. Additionally, their product’s features such as Charge Capture & Rounding, Appointment Reminder System and Waiting Room Module would give the clinic an all- round control over effective patient management, improved patient care, and enhanced revenue.

Impact of Medgre on Clients

Medgre EHR’s core focus is always the ease of use. While ensuring this, the product captures all the aspects of patient’s data, thereby reducing time and effort, and eliminates the need to store paper records. Green Apples MedSystems provides an alternative by allowing their staff of expert billers to handle back-office operations securely and accurately.

Medgre billing dashboard provides authorized users with process transparency and visibility into the practice’s financial performance in real time. The company ensures follow-ups on unpaid claims, while helping the clients to keep a close eye on the financial health through comprehensive reports such as A/R Aging (patient and payer), reimbursement by the carrier, productivity reports and more. The services provided by Green Apples MedSystems frees the clients from the costs of maintaining systems and personnel, and headaches of managing medical billing processes, allowing them to focus on clinical excellence.

Incentive towards Growth

Digital health care technology solutions addressing better diagnostics and more personalized therapeutic tools are leading to the challenge of data protection. GreenApple MedSystems prompts and guides the physician through the process, saving time and ensuring completeness and accuracy. It trends in data management and security including cognitive computing, cloud-based, interoperable electronic health records. Even though the providers are interested in an EHR deployment, the reluctance of the clinic staff during deployment phase is a challenge to the vendor. Effective relationships in this service marketing will lead to repeat sales and positive word of mouth.

Encrypting Medgre’s Security

Choosing the right tools can be very rewarding, and people in Green Apples MedSystems make sure to do plenty of research before spending any substantial amounts of money. Medgre uses industry standard encryption & hash algorithms to encrypt user data. An efficient method of protecting the corporate data in the same way, locking the doors of the business is an effective method of preventing trespassers. The hacking and selling of corporate data can be a very lucrative prospect for a potential hacker and, protection against hacking is extremely important.

Figurative Future

Green Apples MedSystems is getting ready for the latest MU 3 (Meaningful Use Stage 3) certification and other changes that are mandated by the government agencies. Keeping enhanced usability of the EHR is still the prime focus for the company. They are also gearing towards the interoperability requirement as that would put lot of pressure on EHR vendors for implementation.
