Amazing Charts breaks down price barrier for Electronic Medical Record systems

Hope Valley 21 January 2003AmazingCharts.com Inc. has redefined the economics of medical record keeping with the introduction of Amazing Charts software. With a total cost of $500 for essentially all the same functionality as software programmes that sell for thousands of dollars more, Amazing Charts enables small medical practices to begin using an electronic medical record (EMR) system without making significant investments in complicated licensing fees, user training, or extra software modules.

Amazing Charts is inexpensive, easy to learn, and dramatically improves the efficiency of documenting medical encounters. The HIPAA-compliant software package includes office scheduling, interoffice messaging, advanced patient search abilities, ICD and CPT coding, prescription writing, and more. Amazing Charts allows complete progress note documentation of medical encounters in a fast efficient manner.

Amazing Charts was developed by a practising family physician frustrated by expensive, bloated EMR systems that are time-consuming to set up and difficult to use. These programmes can actually slow down the documentation process with multiple pull-down menus and mouse clicks, and often require users to wait while data gets saved.

"Doctors don't need to spend thousands of dollars on complicated EMR systems designed by programmers who have never practised medicine", stated Jonathan Bertman, M.D., president of Amazing Charts. "As a doctor who sees patients all day long, I wanted to boost my productivity, so I researched the available EMR products, but found that they frustrated me and my employees, and actually slowed down office flow. Amazing Charts is designed from the ground up to be the most inexpensive and straightforward system for documenting patient encounters and running your practice."

Amazing Charts offers significant cost savings over traditional EMR software. The average total cost of an EMR system for a four-doctor office ranges from $5000 to more than $20.000. These systems are typically designed for very large group medical practices and include costly wireless hardware and software modules with little value to solo and small group practices.

By contrast, Amazing Charts contains the functionality of other programmes for a fraction of the cost, only $500. This makes Amazing Charts highly affordable for virtually any practice. As a result, Amazing Charts is rapidly becoming one of the most popular EMR programmes in the United States, with over 175 practices having already purchased it, and hundreds more in the free three-month trial period. Amazing Charts EMR runs on any Microsoft Windows 98SE, ME, 2000, or XP computer running at 800 MHz or faster, and having at least 128 MB of RAM.
