AdvancedMD Completes Acquisition of NueMD

AdvancedMD further solidifies position as market-leading cloud platform

July 9, 2018 – South Jordan, Utah-based AdvancedMD, the creator of Rhythm, an end-to-end cloud platform that automates all aspects of clinical and business workflow for independent physician practices and medical billing services, today announced that it has acquired Marietta, Georgia-based Nuesoft Technologies (“NueMD”). The transaction adds to AdvancedMD’s leading market position and extends the feature and functionality both companies will be able to provide practices across the broader ambulatory market.

With over half of independent medical practices still on legacy on-premise software, AdvancedMD continues to benefit from discrete, disconnected workflow moving to a unified end-to-end platform that combines next generation electronic health records and practice management with automated patient engagement applications. By adding NueMD to the AdvancedMD platform, NueMD clients now gain access to a much broader, feature-rich platform with unified clinical and patient engagement solutions. In addition, AdvancedMD clients will benefit from NueMD’s clearinghouse capabilities which further expand upon its unified platform and continue to enhance the value proposition and client experience. With the NueMD acquisition closed, AdvancedMD continues to evaluate further M&A to accelerate its organic growth strategy.

“The acquisition of NueMD is the logical next step for expanding our cloud network of practitioners and physicians who have learned to use end-to-end workflow automation to improve their bottom line and the health of their patients,” said Raul Villar, chief executive officer of AdvancedMD. “NueMD has been a formidable competitor for many years and now we are combining our capabilities to deliver better products and services for all of our clients. We are also extremely excited about adding experienced HCIT experts to the AdvancedMD team and extending our geographic footprint in the Atlanta metro area.”

“We have been on a path similar to AdvancedMD since the beginning,” said Massoud Alibakhsh, CEO and founder of NueMD. “Together, we have tremendous capabilities to disrupt traditional solutions offered to independent physicians, solve the most difficult challenges our practices face and provide them with even better service. AdvancedMD is the category leader and we are excited to be joining forces to become the premier company serving the ambulatory sector with a unified cloud platform built for physicians.”

As a result of the transaction, AdvancedMD’s North American footprint will increase by 27%, expanding the total number of medical practice clients and practitioners to 11,000 and 33,000, respectively. AdvancedMD will retain NueMD offices in Marietta, Georgia.

ADP AdvancedMD Debuts New Patient Relationship Management (PRM) Suite

New PRM Suite Includes Check-in Kiosk, Automated Patient Forms and Patient Portal to Help Medical Practices Improve Patient Communications and Free Up Time for Proactively Managing Patient Healthcare Needs

South Jordan, Utah July 1, 2015 ADP® AdvancedMD®, a leader in all-in-one, cloud electronic health record (EHR), practice management, medical scheduling, medical billing services and a pioneer of big data reporting and business intelligence for smaller medical practices, today announced the launch of its new Patient Relationship Management (PRM) suite. The solution helps private medical practices streamline the patient intake process and the amount of time it takes to administer patient forms. PRM enables patients to easily complete forms electronically, and once finished, forms automatically and securely populate in patient charts, ensuring the medical staff has the most up-to-date information available on the patient.

“Private medical practices are extremely pressed for time and continually on the lookout for new tools and strategies to streamline the administrative side of things,” said Arman Samani, CTO, ADP AdvancedMD. “Our new Patient Relationship Management suite helps front office staff and administrators reduce the amount of time they spend on each patient’s paperwork and enables patients to utilize the Internet to complete intake forms electronically from the privacy of their home or the practice kiosk. This ensures the medical staff can enter a patient meeting informed and clearly focused on addressing the patient’s healthcare needs, and not searching for background information.”

The suite includes the AdvancedMD mobile patient and administrative check-in kiosk. The check-in kiosk, when combined with AdvancedMD insurance verification, credit card processing, as well as advanced online communications with patients, creates a full-featured front-office solution.

Other advantages of the ADP AdvancedMD Patient Relationship Management suite include:

  • Customizable patient and consent forms provide multiple workflow options for each practice. Private practice team members can assign intake forms and consent forms to the patient prior to their arrival at the office so they can be completed ahead of the appointment in the patient portal or in the waiting room via iPad.
  • Forms electronically load into the patient chart with no document scanning required. Additionally, the check-in kiosk lets the practice’s staff scan a patient driver’s license, review demographic information, and make any necessary updates.
  • Patient forms can be managed on an iPad with the iOS app or via traditional desktop browser. Both let the practice’s staff enter patient information, select documents for a patient, and setup an iPad kiosk to be utilized by a patient.
  • Staff are also able to view appointments by date, search for patients by name, view patient photo and demographic information, and add new and existing patient data to a record.
  • Once a patient form is completed, it automatically loads into the patient chart without the need for the office staff to scan paper documents.

Private practices can customize and bundle some or all of the products within the suite. AdvancedMDPRM is available now. To learn more and order, please click here.
