DAS and Aprima selected as EHR Vendor of Choice for 200+ PrimeCare Physicians
Doctors Administrative Solutions (DAS) has been selected by PrimeCare, LLC as the EHR vendor of choice for its more than 200 physicians. Initially, DAS will provide its personalized implementation of the industry‐leading Aprima™ Medical Software electronic health record (EHR) and practice management (PM) solution to the 12 PrimeCare‐owned physician practices.
“After evaluating a number of firms, it was clear to our physicians and practice managers that DAS would provide the ease‐of‐use, logical workflow and unlimited in‐person training and support necessary to make this implementation a success,” said PrimeCare CEO Martin Revello. PrimeCare is an IPA with more than 200 affiliated primary care physicians in 19 Florida counties.
Revello continued, “The fact that DAS is local was particularly important. Our team wanted to work with a company that they trusted and that would be with them every step of the way. DAS is a great cultural fit with PrimeCare and we’re confident they will do everything possible to ensure a smooth transition.”
DAS works exclusively with Aprima Medical Software to implement its EHR/PM software, which holds ONC‐ATCB 2011/2012 certification as a Complete EHR*, in physician practices in West Central Florida. The company takes a partnership approach to each client, including assigning a dedicated implementation team to work with the practice to ensure that the system is personalized to each user’s workflow. This includes gaining an understanding of and customizing for each physician’s charting preferences and typical practice patterns.
DAS manages any necessary conversions and helps set up the new system so that claims can be electronically and compliantly transmitted to payers. Also provided are comprehensive on‐site training before, during and after implementation, as well as ongoing support and unlimited upgrades.
“We understand that transitioning to an EHR can be an overwhelming experience with many potential pitfalls for any size physician practice,” said DAS CEO David Schlaifer. “That is why we believe in longterm, highly personalized relationships with each of our clients. We say we’re into hand‐holding and hugs, and we mean that because our clients rely on us to the extent that we become part of their practice family. We are available when they need us, for as long as they need us, to ensure they are comfortable and proficient with the software.”
Additionally, DAS proactively evaluates how effectively the practice is utilizing the EHR system, in particular with regard to HEDIS® and other quality measures and to comply with incentives and mandates such as PQRI, ePrescribing and stimulus payments. Finally, DAS offers comparative benchmarking to ensure the practice is meeting industry best standards.
