ADP® AdvancedMD®, an all-in-one, cloud-based electronic health record (EHR), practice management (PM), and medical scheduling software as well as medical billing services, today announced the successful deployment of its 2012 Summer release, which introduces the company’s user-friendly Apple iPad® app, additional ICD-10 tools, and best practices workflow for pediatric practices.
“Physicians are using iPads en masse and expect practical and easy-to-use applications that allow them to be untethered from their desk and practice,” said Raul Villar, president, ADP AdvancedMD. “In this release we focused on delivering the most critical scheduling, messaging and charting functions in a way that makes them fun and easy to use.”
iPad use by U.S. doctors has nearly doubled in the past year according to Manhattan Research, which also found that more than 60 percent of doctors use an iPad for professional purposes. “Although many medical practice software vendors offer iPad compatibility, our iPad solution has been designed from inception to combine the intuitive iPad interface with the important mobile functions in the EHR and PM,” said Steve ZoBell, vice president of product development, ADP AdvancedMD. “Based on detailed input from our physician council, we have made increasing physician productivity on a mobile solution remarkably simple.”
“Rapid information retrieval and input is essential for efficient EHR workflows and healthcare. It is no surprise that doctors are adopting iPads at an incredible rate due to their ease of use and portability,” said Joseph Martins, managing director, Data Mobility Group. “This latest release by AdvancedMD shows how strong investment in a well thought-out product, combined with wise platform choices, such as the iPad, help make physicians’ lives easier.”
The AdvancedMD iPad app will be available later this summer as a free download through the Apple App Store.
