HealthFusion MediTouch, now known as NextGen Office, is a cloud-based software that was specially created for smaller-sized medical practices. Health facilities have been making good use of this tool in an effort to provide quality care at the highest level possible. This software formerly known HealthFusion has almost all the features you could ever want and need as a healthcare worker. For instance, there’s drag-and-drop scheduling, customization options, payment options, revenue management, and a whole lot more.
Since it’s a secure cloud-based software, you can access HealthFusion anywhere and at anytime—as long as your device is connected to the internet. With this nifty piece of technology, you don’t even need to print or fax medical data. That being said, let’s take a more in-depth look at all the other features available.
HealthFusion has a user friendly feature that allows you to make the most out of your time by giving you the ability to create and make use of charts anywhere. What’s more, there are a bunch of pre-loaded templates available already, so you can be as productive as possible.
Integrated Patient Portal
Patients are given easy and seamless access to their medical records. The portal where they can check this information is secure, and from there, they can ask you questions, send a request for their medication to be refilled, as well as view their health history. HealthFusion believes that EHR systems such as itself has the opportunity to increase its engagement by using patient portals. Through these portals, you can guarantee patient satisfaction when it comes to their care plans.
When it comes to surgery, you can offer patients with pre and post-procedure care plans. All this necessary information is easily accessible, and it even comes with pre-loaded templates to choose from depending on the specific medical concern. Even patients who aren’t that techy won’t have any trouble with HealthFusion’s interface, thanks to its ease of use and user friendliness.
Meaningful Use Certified
Ensuring that an EHR system is Meaningful Use certified is important. Fortunately, this is the case with HealthFusion. The software has a built-in Meaningful Use Report Card as well, which can be used to showcase how the system can be used meaningfully. This also helps ensure that you won’t run into any issues with the government.
According to HealthFusion, meeting Meaningful Use standards is quick and easy, and doesn’t even require that much effort on your part. All you have to do is register for the program and then follow the instructions in order for you to type in your report card results.
History of Present Illness
This is arguably one of the main benefits to using HealthFusion. The software has different forms that can help you learn more about your patient. In fact, you can even request your patient to fill up a form before scheduling an appointment with you so that you’ll already have a gist of the problem before you meet. HealthFusion’s library of forms is already extensive, but if you weren’t able to find one to your liking, then you can also create your own.
You can download the HealthFusion a.k.a NextGen app on your mobile device so that you can still check on data and tasks even when you’re not at the office or clinic. As long as your device of choice is connected to the internet, then you won’t have any problem accessing the EHR system.
There are different pricing options to choose from, but it all depends on what type of provider your facility is using and how many claims are submitted in a month. There are various pricing tiers as well—for instance, the pricing for doctors may be different from nurse practitioners.
