EHR for PCMH

EHR for PCMH

eMDs Aprima Version 18, an eMDs EHR/PM solution, is Prevalidated by NCQA for PCMH. NCQA PCMH Prevalidation is designed to help practices identify health IT solutions that reduce the administrative burdens of meeting NCQA PCMH program requirements.

eMDs Aprima was awarded this designation following a rigorous evaluation of our solution’s functionality, including a thorough review of reporting functions and screen shots, and a live demonstration.

Prevalidated EHR for your PCMH Initiative

Aprima Version 18 is prevalidated by NCQA to fully meet:

  • Seven required Core Criteria in the areas of Knowing and Managing Your Patients, Patient-Centered Access and Continuity, Care Coordination and Care Transitions, and Performance Measurement and Quality Improvement
  • Eight credits of Elective Criteria in the areas of Team-Based Care and Practice Organization, Knowing and Managing Your Patients, Patient- Centered Access and Continuity, and Performance Measurement and Quality Improvement
  • Nine additional Criteria for Support in the areas of Knowing and Managing Your Patients, and Care Coordination and Care Transitions

Practices that are actively using Aprima Version 18  to fulfill PCMH criteria have a lower administrative burden of providing supporting documentation, saving time, and using technology that helps the practice provide better, more patient-centered care.

Autocredits and PCMH-Specific Reports

Lower your practice’s administrative burden of providing documentation for PCMH recognition in 2 important ways

  1. Practices do not have to submit documentation for factors that have been awarded autocredit as part of the NCQA Prevalidation process.
  2. Aprima PRM includes dozens of dashboard reports that provide the documentation required for the PCMH recognition process. These reports are standard and allow practices to quickly produce the documentation they need.

Scheduler that Supports “Access and Continuity”

The appointment scheduler supports the Access and Continuity standard for providing same-day appointment slots for routine and urgent care needs, and for routine and urgent care slots outside of regular business hours.

Online Access to Prescription History

Automatically populate your patients’ records with their prescription history by downloading directly from the online Surescripts database. Enjoy easy and rapid access to the medication information you need to detect potential contraindications, lower efficacy or side effects with medications you plan to prescribe.

“Aprima worked closely with us during the approval and certification process to become a patient-centered medical home. Being recognized as a PCMH has been a tremendous financial boost for us, and Aprima continues to help us track the type of data we need for reporting.” Marc Mayer, DO, Avenel Iselin Medical Group

“The biggest use that we had out of Aprima was when we decided to achieve a PCMH recognition under the NCQA recognition process. The one thing that was phenomenal about Aprima was that it was pre-validated, which really helped make the application process really easy.” Shirley Stickle, MD

Interoperability

eMDs gives providers the EHR interoperability tools they need to connect with patient data in the way that works best for them, and, just as importantly, those with whom they need to connect. Whether that is with a point to point interface, integration with a Health Information Exchange (HIE), direct messaging, or with participation in our national network partners’ programs such as Surescripts and CommonWell.

Healthcare organizations are working hard to move from paper-based, manual processes to streamlined digital workflows to handle faxes. eMDs users can centralize all fax workflows into a single solution, integrated into Aprima for optimal efficiency and interoperability. Inbound fax workflows can be routed, processed and filed to the patient chart. Outbound faxes are sent directly from Aprima.

eMDs makes interoperability simple for doctors by making patient data available quickly and in real time. Whether sending or receiving, eMDs has you covered. Learn more about eMDs Interoperability .
