Noteworthy’s NetPractice EHRweb is web-based electronic health software that can be used by any practice, regardless of size and specialty. Its Version 7.02.0 has received the ONC-ATCB 2011-2012 designation for Stage 1 meaningful use (which is set by the feds for reimbursement for physicians adopting EMR for their offices). Unlike a traditional EMR, EHRweb allows physicians to securely communicate patients’ information (i.e. symptoms or medication) to their other doctors within the same network. Physicians can also access pertinent information on their patients that are recorded by their other doctors.
Like other EMRs, EHRweb presents patient information online and in an accessible format, so doctors can find them at point of care, which can lead to improved healthcare quality. Doctors can also format patients’ charts based on either a custom or a universal template, and chart notes can be created by either voice recognition or macros. Doctors can also build patients’ problem list (symptoms) and medical, family, and social history, and share it with other providers in a secure manner.
EHRweb includes the NetPracticeRESULTS and NetPracticeERX interface. NetPracticeRESULTS is intended for providers who want to access lab and radiology results in one setting, rather than having to log into multiple systems. Doctors can review and sign off on any test they’ve ordered and can receive results electronically in real time. The test results are then saved in the patient’s electronic health record. Test results can be sorted by date, type of test, or the name of the doctor who ordered them. It also improves efficiency for the staff – they can access the test results quickly while on the phone with the patient.
NetPracticeERX is an electronic prescribing interface that utilizes the SureScripts network. Doctors can send prescriptions to any pharmacy and manage refills and renewals request online. NetPracticeERX also provides a formulary database of brand-name and generic medications. Doctors also can check potential drug interactions as well as the patient’s medication history. Patient medication history can also be shared with pharmacies as well. NetPracticeERX also has a Schedule 3-5 medication complaint printing feature for Medicare requirements.
NetPractice EHRweb can also be integrated with the NetPracticePM for scheduling and billing functions. Staff can view appointment schedules by day, week, or a month. Schedules can also be sorted by provider and location (if practice has multiple locations). Appointment reminders can also be sent electronically. Bills and claims can also be sent electronically via the software’s billing function, reducing paperwork and time. Claims can also be checked for errors prior to sending them to insurance companies.
Paper documents can be added to a patient’s electronic record by scanning or faxing. Also, doctors can access a patient’s record wherever they are outside of office hours, especially if a patient has an urgent medical question or request.
Noteworthy provides a variety of training tools for all of its products, including online self-paced training, DVD, live online training, and onsite training. Training manuals and interactive tutorials are also available. Noteworthy also provides its online support center for technical help.
NetPractice EHRweb can be used by any provider, regardless of size or specialty. When used in conjunction with other NetPractice interfaces mentioned above, EHRweb improves medical practice workflow, which leads to higher quality of patient care.
