The increase of electronic health records has driven the need for companies to combine their efforts to optimize patient’s overall health and wellness; an example of this is a recent alliance between Future Health Inc, an integrated office management company, and JTECH Medical, which produces computerized wireless functional testing systems.
Future Health, Inc. is one of the first chiropractic companies to create a totally integrated clinic management solution encompassing: scheduling, electronic health records, documentation, billing and patient education within one package. Future Health’s vision is to provide the Clinic of the Future to healthcare providers by offering a seamless system that is deeply integrated with x-ray records, computerized diagnostic and analysis devices such as JTECH’s instruments. JTECH’s multiple testing systems include inclinometers for range of motion, muscle testing, grip testing, algometry, AMA impairment rating, goniometry ROM, pinch testing, static lifting and strength, and isometric evaluation.
The integration between Future Health, Inc. and JTECH Medical allows all patient documentation and reports to be stored in Future Health’s TRUE electronic health record (EHR) rather than in a system computer for different biomedical devices. The information is stored on the JTECH system but also in Future Health’s patient EHR. The test reports can be attached to any daily note and inside the note, the Future Health system will automatically reference that there was a JTECH test performed that day. This convenience makes it easy to retrieve records from any computer on the doctor’s network within a matter of seconds; and it will help provide medical necessity and demonstrate progress in clinical documentation.
This alliance between JTECH Medical and Future Health, Inc. creates easier office flow, improved patient understanding, greater efficiencies, and ultimately, resulting in a better managed practice.
Dr. Steven Kraus, CEO of Future Health stated, “We are excited with the completion of this integration with JTECH’s functional testing reports. This takes our solution one step closer to our vision for the Clinic of the Future. Our goal is to help doctor’s increase efficiencies and maximize their workflow through technology.”
According to Len Smith, President of JTECH Medical, doctor’s who utilize JTECH’s wireless functional testing and assessment equipment will appreciate the integration.
“This interface is going to benefit doctors in multiple ways,” states Smith. “By interfacing with Future Health, doctors are going to see measurable results in staff efficiency, faster retrieval of records, and more robust documentation, which will lead to a much more effective billing program. This integration will create more comprehensive and compliant notes that are easy to retrieve and will demonstrate the benefit of the care that has been given and will also provide the documentation to support extended care, if needed.”
