ADP AdvancedMD: Simplifying Healthcare Service through Data Accessibility

 Raul Villar, President
Today, with provisions such as the Affordable Care Act (ACA) revolutionizing the healthcare industry by vesting charge back in the hand of the consumer, complying with legislative changes is easier said than done. The U.S. healthcare industry is increasingly facing challenges with adhering to the act due to lack of proper equipment and guidance. As a solution to this, Utah based company, ADP AdvancedMD helps clients comply with regulatory and legislative changes, such as the ACA. The company also provides cloud-based software, including an ONC-ATCB-CCHIT 2011-2012 certified complete electronic health record. AdvancedMD replaces five or more systems with an all-in-one EHR and practice management solution that allows clients to optimize schedules, simplify check-in and checkouts, document patient encounters, prescribe and order, capture and pursue revenue, measure financial performance and practice on the go. "We do this through our state of the art Software-as-a-service (SaaS) digital platform that doesn’t need any installation and it effectively records, gathers and transfers an individual’s health map,” says Raul Villar, President of ADP AdvancedMD.

The company offers a platform that allows the accessibility of health information over various devices and networks. AdvancedMD makes running a practice easier with everything at the clinician’s fingertips. With a single sign-on from any location clients can have immediate data access and comprehensive billing performance with minimal data entry. There’s no software to install or maintain. Speed is renowned and assistance from AdvancedMD support experts is always available. “Moving one’s practice to the cloud will be liberating from burdensome costs of client-server software ownership improving the practice of medicine,” adds Villar. Services of ADP AdvancedMD mainly include accessing patient information and managing their demographics, checking referral information, verifying insurance coverage and controlling the appointment scheduling process. Some of their other solutions include, front office productivity, provision of electronic health record for the nurse as well as for the physician, billing tools for the in-house staff, medical billing services, and an Advanced Insight Reporting for measuring financial performance and availability of mobile technologies.
The company has more than 45,000 U.S. based physicians connected with it and their all-in-one EHR is designed to accommodate the workflow preferences and expectations for just about every specialty such as pediatrics, pulmonary, retina, and cardiology. In addition, ADP AdvancedMD helps its consumers to expand their value-added products and services through transcription services, therapeutics networks, specialty EHRs, major laboratories and electronic prescription services are the key points of this company. “The successful independent practice of the future needs tools and services to help manage growth and support efficiency, care coordination, patient engagement and the transition to value based payment models,” delineates Villar.

In one instance, a clinic in Missouri has been using the AdvancedMD practice management suite for nearly ten years, including scheduling, eligibility verification and sophisticated billing. The sophisticated scheduling and billing functions address challenges in areas unique to obstetrics and gynecology practice. Doctors and staff access the system anytime, anywhere through the cloud without the need for additional on-site servers and computer equipment.

The company also recently launched AdvancedMD Marketplace, which offers private practices a broad array of innovative products and services that operate seamlessly with the ADP AdvancedMD practice management and EHR product suite. The core goal behind the Marketplace is to extend the power of AdvancedMD with cloud apps and services to build a better practice. In the future ahead, ADP AdvancedMD will continue to empower physicians and extend the value of workforce data.
