Medios EHR is the easiest to use and implement EHR system on the market today,
adapting to the way physician’s and their practices work.Since Medios EHR is fully web-based it
provides immediate and secure access to critical patient information and
physician tools that are not normally accessible via paper; such as drug
interactions, clinical decision support, patient education, disease and patient
population management. Because Medios is integrated to so many different
entities, the physician has a more complete patient record at the point of care
allowing for the ability to deliver an accurate assessment and diagnosis. In
addition, patients are also given physician controlled access to their medical
records and the ability to make payments and schedule appointments via the
system’s Patient Portal. Medios EHR is also fully integrated with Medios PM - Practice
Management system, providing practices with the tools to have full control of
the revenue cycle by automating the claims process, reducing claim rejections,
and providing total management of the practice from check-in to payment.
