Ophthalmology and Optometry Software Suite

Rich ophthalmic-specific functionality would be worthless if it slowed down the workflow of an ophthalmic practice. Medflow EHR is constantly being optimized to provide the fastest and most accurate documentation of each patient encounter. The optimization of the patient encounter allows for the highest levels of patient care and satisfaction. Medflow has designed its solutions to provide rapid data entry, immediate access to all history-related content, and quick summaries of critical clinical results enabling more efficient disease management decisions. The desktop summary allows the ophthalmologist to see their entire workload, unsigned documents, diagnostic results to be reviewed, tasks, emails and more – all from one screen.

Charlotte, September 5, 2013 – Medflow, Inc. today announced that Medflow Electronic Health Records v8.1 has been certified under the Drummond Group’s Electronic Health Records Office of the National Coordinator Authorized Certification Body (ONC-ACB) program. By receiving the 2014 ONC HIT Certification, Medflow’s EHR software is compliant in accordance with the criteria adopted by the Secretary of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.

The significance of this milestone for the eye care community is that Medflow’s current and prospective customers can now have confidence that the EHR to which they have entrusted their practices will qualify for Meaningful Use Stages 1 and 2 and avoid penalties for non-compliance.

“This is a great day for our company and our customers,” commented Medflow President and Chief Executive Officer D. James Riggi.   “We realized how significant it was to get certified well before the beginning of 2014. We believe we are the first eye care specific EHR to become certified. It was a major challenge to effectively blend CQM aligned Clinical Decision Support into an eye care workflow.  We are proud to be the industry leader in our specialty segment!”

Drummond Group’s ONC-ACB certification program certifies that EHRs meet the meaningful use criteria for either eligible provider or hospital technology. In turn, healthcare providers using the EHR systems of certified vendors are qualified to receive federal stimulus monies upon demonstrating meaningful use of the technology – a key component of the federal government’s program to improve clinical care delivery through the adoption and effective use of EHRs by U.S. healthcare providers.

The Medflow complete EHR is 2014 Edition compliant and has been certified by an ONC-ACB in accordance with the applicable certification criteria adopted by the Secretary of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. This certification does not represent an endorsement by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services or guarantee the receipt of incentive payments.

desktop_screenFrom this one screen, a physician can quickly and easily review every work item that has been assigned, created or designated to them.

Shown on the left hand side of the screen are all documents that require attention. This includes examinations to sign-off, technician notes from the clinic and or pending medication prescriptions requiring a signature. In one easy step, you can manage all your documentation.

Outstanding orders are displayed in the upper-right hand corner of the screen. This includes diagnostic tests, special examinations, surgical procedures pending and dictation required. You have the ability to personalize this view, filtering the displayed information by using the radio buttons across the top and gaining access to other content.

In the middle of the screen, shaded yellow, you have a very simple list of open tasks, diagnostic procedures, correspondence going out and emails requiring your attention. The ophthalmologist’s desktop provides a comprehensive to-do list.

Medflow EHR is optimized to provide the fastest and most efficient access to clinical data for any physician, regardless of their specialty. Medflow’s uniquely designed forms summarize a patient’s complete history in one place. Disease management becomes a reality.

glaucoma_screenEverything you need for the follow-up and management of each glaucoma patient is on one screen. All your key indices are displayed, graphed and reviewed. You have complete access to all diagnostic data that may exist for a patient. View your entire assessment and plans to quickly see what has been tried in the past – what works and what doesn’t. You make informed decisions, improving your patient’s care and compliance.

iop_screenThe IOP Graph screen displays your patient’s IOP values over time. This is a very effective tool to use with your patients to demonstrate their need for compliance. The bottom-left window shows you the exact medication the patient was taking when the corresponding IOP measurements were taken.

visual_screenDirectly from the glaucoma summary screen you have access to the new “Visual Field Viewer.” You can quickly sort OD/OS by date and then move forwards and backwards through a history of visual fields. This is a very effective and efficient way to review the fields in order to get an impression of the patient’s progression.
