DrChrono - Creating the Practice of the Future
Though the healthcare space has been at the edge of innovation and technological adoption, it was always a tough task to give better care while managing the clinic’s operations. This is where businesses such as DrChrono is streamlining the workflow of healthcare professionals with advanced solutions. DrChrono develops the essential platform and services for modern medical practices to make care more informed, more interactive, and more personalized. The open platform powers electronic health record (EHR), practice management, medical billing, and revenue cycle management solutions for thousands of physicians and millions of patients, and is fully extensible via a robust API and marketplace of applications and services.
Based in Sunnyvale, California, DrChrono was founded in 2009 by Michael Nusimow and Daniel Kivatinos, two laser-focused innovators who experienced first-hand the frustrations of the current healthcare system when they attempted to help family members through serious diagnoses. As a result, they became determined to remove the administrative burdens that are draining time, energy, and enthusiasm from the way providers work today, creating a world where every provider and patient can thrive. As part of their innovations, DrChrono’s solutions are facilitating millions of patient appointments and are processing billions of dollars in medical billing. “I know there has to be a better way for clinicians to engage with patients. That’s why we started working on DrChrono,” begins Michael Nusimow, Co-founder and CEO, DrChrono.
DrChrono designs essential medical technology to make care more informed, personalized, interactive, and adaptable. As medical billing is critical to the financial health of a practice, the company’s medical billing software is expertly integrated with their EHR, practice management system, and clearinghouses to address all of a practice’s billing needs. DrChrono is here to be a strategic partner in achieving higher payment collection, low denial rates, and higher clean claims rates. DrChrono’s fully integrated EHR and medical billing software saves time and helps improve clean claim rates by eliminating multiple data entries and human errors. Just enter patient information once and automatically pass data to billing.
Administrators can easily view billing reports and analytics in an integrated billing dashboard without leaving the DrChrono EHR platform. It displays how a practice is performing with reports and graphs that help administrators to identify areas of improvement with real-time insight. DrChrono is always developing tools to improve clean claim rates, reduce human errors, and automate parts of the workflow that reduce efficiency. With the solution’s state-of-the-art features, billing is effortless and accurate, ultimately improving the clinic’s bottom line.
An instance that highlights DrChrono’s value proposition is when the company’s solutions enhanced the work capability of Gilbert, Arizona-based fertility and endocrinology specialist, Dr. Mark Amols’ extremely successful fertility practice. His nine-person practice, New Direction Fertility Center, helps patients at a fraction of the cost they would spend elsewhere; due to his success rates, skill and favorable cost structure, Dr. Amols, and his staff see anywhere between 30-50 patients a day. Dr. Amols and his staff take efficiency seriously. He and his staff simply do not have time in between appointments or after closing to chart. DrChrono is the perfect solution as they can use customized medical templates and clinical forms on their iPad to chart comprehensively during each encounter. Additionally, since Dr. Amols and his staff utilize the DrChrono Apollo account, they are able to use the EHR to manage their billing as well. The process is seamless for the team thanks to the Billing Profiles feature, which allows users to preset the correct ICD-9, CPT, HCPCS, and NDC codes for procedures.
Serving tens of thousands of physicians and over 17 million patients, DrChrono was the first EHR to build a native app for the iPad and iPhone. “We’re the only official Apple Mobility Partner for healthcare, the youngest company to be included in the US Government Precision Medicine Initiative, the #1 EHR as voted by doctors, and the #1 mobile EHR as voted by Black Book.” “From the moment a doctor wakes up, seeing patients at the office, doing house calls, or at night after driving home, he will have access to his patients’ data and ability to provide care at a moment’s notice,” Nusimow concludes.
“DrChrono’s fully integrated EHR and medical billing software saves time and helps improve clean claim rates by eliminating multiple data entries and human errors.”
