Centricity EMR and Centricity Practice Solution users report saving at least 15 minutes of data entry time per new patient visit.
Boston, MA (PRWEB) - Simple Interact and Health1 Technologies announce the availability of a solution which automatically pushes patient intake forms from Simple Interact into Centricity™ EMR, a secure platform for capturing and storing patient and medical institution records and sharing them with other stakeholders. Data, including discrete medical history, demographics, contact information, and PDFs, is uploaded faster and more reliably.
With this new capability, medical facilities using Centricity Practice Solution and Centricity EMR report at least 75% reduction in data entry time. Instead of manually entering data, staff review patient-entered data before pushing it to the appropriate Centricity EMR forms in the patient chart. In addition, patient demographic and contact data, as well as PDF copies of the completed forms, are uploaded into Centricity Practice Solution.
“We have been using this new data push capability for several months now and are thrilled with the results!” said Nita Machado, Practice Manager at North Dallas ENT. “Our Medical Assistants are able to complete what used to be a 20-minute task in less than 5 minutes now. Within the Centricity EMR system, we can review the data entered by a patient in one jumbo form and approve each section to be copied over into our individual Centricity EMR forms. We finally have a streamlined, paperless patient intake process that has allowed us to increase provider utilization while reducing costs related to staff time, ink and paper.”
Simple Interact reports that its Integrated HIPAA Compliant Forms service results in:
- Greater than 50% of new patients fill out forms ahead of time.
- Greater than 75% reduction in data entry time per new patient visit.
- Increased provider utilization.
“We are very excited to have partnered with Simple Interact on creating this solution," said Rahul Patel, Partner at Health1 Technologies. "Improving patient and staff experiences is a central goal of our work and we think that automation of data upload to Centricity EMR will accomplish just that. This solution will provide our clients with a powerful tool which will help medical practices grow, while still providing their patient with the highest quality care.”
“Time is in short supply for healthcare staff and automating repetitive tasks is a huge value add,” said Ravi Kalidindi, CEO, Simple Interact. “Achieving data push capability for Centricity EMR requires deep system level expertise. We found a great partner in Health1 Technologies and are very proud of the robust data push framework we have built together. Centricity EMR users will be impressed with the amount of data we can push and the resulting workflow improvements.”

About Health1 Technologies
Health 1 Technologies was founded over a decade ago in 2006 by Jennifer Monahan and Rahul Patel to fill a specific need in the small physician practice space. Our initial goal was to be the practice’s “one stop shop” for all issues or services. We felt practices were often caught in the middle of vendor “finger-pointing” and didn’t know to whom to turn. Rahul Patel’s technical & revenue cycle background and Jennifer Monahan’s clinical background blended perfectly to offer that solution. Both Partners are involved in the daily operations of the organization along with an extremely experienced and knowledgeable team.
Today, we host our client systems in our data center, provide medical billing services, and continue to expand on our range of services that are directly linked to the optimization of the Electronic Health Record and Practice Management into the physician practice, while providing direct leadership in the various quality program regulations. We look forward to the next decade of service to our clients and the healthcare industry as a whole.
