Amazing Charts in the Cloud Offers Customers Flexible, Secure Access To Electronic Health Records from Any Location, Without a Web Browser
North Kingstown, RI – August 7, 2012 – AmazingCharts.com, Inc., a leading provider of Electronic Health Records (EHR/EMRs) to small independent medical practices, today announced the availability of Amazing Charts in the Cloud, a new cloud-based version of its EHR, delivered online through the Software as a Service (SaaS) model. Amazing Charts in the Cloud securely delivers the #1 rated EHR to Internet-connected computers, anywhere, anytime.
With an innovative new approach to hosting EHR software, Amazing Charts in the Cloud eliminates many of the problems users have experienced with traditional web-based EHRs, such as a limited browser interface, poor performance, or a lack of security and privacy. In contrast, Amazing Charts in the Cloud features remote desktop services for faster performance, isolated practice databases for tighter security, and a fully redundant HIPAA-compliant infrastructure for privacy.
“Most web-based EHRs are frustrating to use because of the ‘click and wait’ delay inherent when trying to document multiple data points,” said Jonathan Bertman, MD, FAAFP, the founder and CEO of Amazing Charts. “Complex medical data recorded during an encounter requires all sorts of analysis and collating. Clients who have switched to Amazing Charts from web-based EHRs report unacceptable delays that actually impaired their ability to document encounters and get home for dinner. Even more worrisome, some of these EHR vendors combine all their practices’ data into a single monolithic database in the cloud. If that common database is hacked, thousands of practices, and all their patients, can be impacted. We don’t do that.”
Jones Family Practice in Mesa, Arizona, recently began using Amazing Charts in the Cloud after four years of running Amazing Charts on premises. “Thanks to Amazing Charts in the Cloud, I just had the pleasure of firing my overpriced IT consultant,” laughs Scott Jones, MD. “I am a solo practitioner who gets about 50 visits per day, so I have no patience for error messages or slowness in performance. The performance of Amazing Charts in the Cloud is as fast, if not faster, than Amazing Charts on my local office network and server. The best part is that Amazing Charts in the Cloud allows me to concentrate on seeing patients, instead of dealing with IT issues.”
The monthly cost of Amazing Charts in the Cloud is based on the number of people accessing the system at the same time, with the price per connection scaling down as more connections are added. A single connection is $100/month; a five-pack of simultaneous connections is priced at $300/month; and a ten-pack is priced at $500/month. Higher numbers of connections are available on a sliding scale. A simple online calculator allows practices to find the optimal pricing package.
Amazing Charts in the Cloud is easy to purchase, implement, and use. A free 28-day trial of Amazing Charts in the Cloud allows users to create their own database with real patient data and even use existing interfaces.
