As the U.S. ramps up the implementation of EMRs in medical practices in order to lower costs, prevent errors, and improve patient care, meridianEMR and LABORIE MEDICAL have provided a great benefit to Urologists using LABORIE urodynamic systems.
The integration of LABORIE's urodynamic test results directly into meridianEMR's Urology specific EMR allows their Urology clients to experience the following benefits:
The financial gain resulting from the time that this integration saves is significant -- approximately 25 minutes per study. An average of ten (10) Urodynamic studies each month will save a Urologist about four (4) hours per month, which translates into significant dollars.
"This is a perfect example of integrated technology to assist our joint clients in cutting down their time to produce exceptional narrative reports on their Urodynamic results. It is only appropriate that the leaders in Urodynamics and Urology Specific EMR collaborate," Peter Bulla, Vice President of LABORIE MEDICAL stated.
