Origin Healthcare Solutions Provide Advanced Patient Portal Functionality within Electronic Health Record System

Intuit Health Solution Integrated With EHR to Help Clients Meet Meaningful Use Rules

WINDSOR, Connecticut – Feb. 23, 2011 – Origin Healthcare Solutions, a leader in the medical software and revenue cycle management industry, announced today that their Electronic Health Record system, Origin EMRge™, will equip thousands of providers across the United States with advanced functionality within their patient portal module. Origin has partnered with Intuit Health, a leader in patient portal and healthcare communications, for this enhanced functionality.

"We are excited to integrate advanced patient portal functionality into Origin's Electronic Health Record which assists our clients in meeting the rules for Meaningful Use. Secure patient communications and timely access assists practices in delivering sophisticated methodologies for notifying patients of lab results and additional care that is needed. As Meaningful Use requirements expand, Origin will be there with technology solutions that solve clinical and business problems," commented Frank Perrotta, Jr., vice president of Origin Healthcare Solutions.

Medical practices that are using Origin EMRge™ will be able to expedite many front desk and clinical and administrative tasks using this fully integrated functionality. Phone time previously required to respond to appointment and medication requests can now be allocated to other patient care needs. Demographic data entry time is lessened as updates are delivered to the patient's medical record from the portal. Pre-registration forms and medical and family history can now be written directly to the patient encounter, thereby significantly reducing documentation time. Patient recalls can now be handled by broadcast messaging from within EMRge. The portal is also able to facilitate communication between the patient and healthcare provider, via functionality such as Ask-A-Biller.

 

In January, Intuit Health received ONC-ATCB certification as a modular solution for the timely access of electronic health records, an important element of high patient engagement.

"With our help, Origin's clients are now able to offer a secure and seamless online experience that delights patients in a way that drives utilization and value to the practice," said Steve Malik, president and general manager of Intuit Health.  "The combination of the trusted Intuit brand and our recent certification, further assures Origin and their clients that we can uniquely help them improve the efficiency of their practice while meeting Meaningful Use objectives."
