Electronic health record vendor drchrono released a new version of its software for larger medical practices and provider groups. The company also said it has built the RCM Pro service to optimize workflow of coders, billers and billing managers.

The updated EHR platform is targeted for larger medical practices that need to retire legacy EMR systems and upgrade to cloud-based technology, real-time business intelligence tools, RCM software and mobile applications, drchrono CEO Michael Nusimow said in a statement.

The RCM Pro platform addresses current drawbacks in medical billing with software to streamline and reduce the amount of human labor involved in getting doctors paid from insurance companies and their patients.

The update brings several features for larger practices, including security technology, cloud servers for HIPAA compliance and two-factor authorization. This latest iteration also includes business intelligence tools for advanced charting and reporting options to give the C-suite a complete view of the business, and a patient portal with messaging and payment processing and applications for smart phones and tablets.

Through drchrono’s partnership with the Mayo Clinic, the new version offers advanced patient education material uploaded by the practice or accessed through a database and accessible via the web, iPad or iPhone.

“drchrono has spent its formative years developing a physician first product building in customization and clinical tools all integrated into one platform,” Nusimow added. “The new features are specifically designed for larger provider groups who need to operate more efficiently.”
