March 15, 2012 — Northwestern Health Sciences University selected BackChart for the electronic health record (EHR) that will be implemented in university clinics in 2012.
As part of the agreement and BackChart’s commitment to the growth of chiropractic and other natural healthcare professions, Northwestern graduates will receive fully-paid, royalty-free licensure to use BackChart COS during their first year following graduation.
BackChart COS (Chiropractic Office Solution) is a Web-based EHR that has the capability to handle all the core business aspects from scheduling appointments to the scrubbing of billable procedures. Notable features include its cross platform Web-browser based interface, quality assurance safeguards, outcomes measurement reporting, and clinical work flow.
BackChart’s Clinical Work Flow was created as a tool to guide patient encounters. The Clinical Work Flow is a user friendly interface that simplifies recording necessary data elements, provides Clinical Decision Support, and guides the clinical process — all in one place. This unique feature makes it easier for eligible providers to achieve meaningful use.
“We’re looking forward to working with BackChart as we implement an EHR for our clinics,” said Craig Schulz, DC, MS, associate dean of research and director of data management for the Wolfe-Harris Center for Clinical Studies at Northwestern. “After an extensive product search, we believe the features and flexibility of the BackChart solution are the best match for our needs, and will not only enhance our patient records, but will also be an educational tool for our students.”
The BackChart team is very excited to begin implementation at Northwestern in 2012. BackChart founder Leo Bronston, DC. MAppSc, says “Overall, we believe BackChart will help improve the student’s educational experience and will provide a more seamless work flow at NWHSU clinics.”
BackChart COS is a certified complete EHR by the Certification Commission of Health Information Technology (CCHIT) and ONC-ATCB, in accordance with applicable eligible provider criteria adopted by the Health and Human Services.
