Digital Assent PatientPad® Integrates with PatientNOW EMR

Digital Assent, provider of the award-winning PatientPad® self-service patient check-in and patient education solution, has partnered with PatientNOW, a leading provider of electronic medical records (EMR) solutions for aesthetic-focused practices, to automatically transfer patient check-in information entered via the PatientPad to the physician’s PatientNOW system.

PatientPad“Digital Assent’s partnership with PatientNOW will significantly improve a patient’s experience from the moment they walk through their physician’s door,” said Tim Collins, CTO and co-founder of Digital Assent. “Everything is electronic and automated, which decreases time spent filling out paperwork or a doctor shuffling through paper for health information. Physicians will also benefit from reduced clerical errors and transcription costs.”

The PatientPad is a wireless touch-screen solution that automates the patient check-in process and delivers targeted health information and advertising to interested patients while they sit in their healthcare provider’s waiting room, exam room or treatment room. Since the beginning of the year, the PatientPad has enjoyed rapid adoption by physician practices in more than 30 states.

Along with a comprehensive and certified EMR solution, PatientNOW offers fully integrated marketing, customer contact and patient process tracking tools to increase efficiency and revenue creation for each practice.  This unified EMR and practice management solution is tailor-made for the aesthetic medical provider market, including plastic and cosmetic surgeons, dermatologists and medical spas.

“Aligning ourselves with Digital Assent and the PatientPad is a natural fit for both companies, which are two of the pioneers leading the conversion from paper to electronic health records,” said Jerry Jacobson, president and co-founder of PatientNOW.  “Capturing data electronically from the patient and pushing it automatically to the PatientNOW EMR system is a tremendous value and time saver for every one of our practices.”

The first office to go live with the integrated solution was The Skin Spa of Newnan Dermatology, located a few miles south of metro Atlanta in Newnan, Ga. “Now that PatientPad integrates with PatientNOW, our front-office staff no longer have to waste time and energy manually entering patient data,” said Trisha Kennedy, Director of The Skin Spa.

This partnership follows on the heels of Digital Assent’s recent $7.5 million Series B equity funding, which the company is using to more rapidly grow its market share and product footprint.  Earlier this year, the company received a $2 million Series A round of funding to expand its leadership team and launch a national sales campaign.

PatientNow Announces Reseller Agreement with Tangent

PatientNow recently announced a reseller agreement with Tangent that will provide state-of-the-art medical computers and tablets to surgical and aesthetic physicians nation-wide.

Computers have become an integral component of medical practices over the years, and with the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, or what is referred to as the Stimulus Package propelling Electronic Medical Records (EMR) into healthcare, the need for medical practices to move to a paperless office has become paramount.

Today physicians are seeing more patients on a daily basis than ever, creating larger number of charts that need to be completed by the end of each day. A growing number of physicians are using a portable wireless tablets, such as Tangent’s Medix 10T, to enter patient information during the examination. This allows the physician to document the necessary details in the Electronic Medical Records system while meeting with the patient. This also permits the physician to see the allotted number of patients without having to deal with paperwork at the end of the day.

Tangent recently released the Medix 10T touch screen tablet that uses hot swappable batteries instead of a single battery, allowing a physician to use the tablet the entire day, switching batteries as needed, and never having to waste time waiting on the device to reboot. In addition, the Medix 10T has an integrated fingerprint reader and barcode scanner so that medical tasks can be performed efficiently anywhere in the office. Tangent’s systems are hospital grade and are used by personnel throughout the medical practice such as the front office to check-in patients or schedule appointments, and the back-office to quickly enter or access information on wall-mounted terminals.

Using PatientNOW’s Medical Suite™ 5.0 software running on Tangent computer systems allows the medical practice to manage patient information while saving time and improving services of the practice. Tasks such as insurance verification, e-prescribing, EMR, inventory, electronic billing, and point-of-sale can all be accomplished using PatientNOW.
