DALLAS, March 2 Aprima Medical Software, a leading developer of electronic health record (EHR), practice management (PM) and revenue cycle management solutions for medical practices, today announced the release of Aprima's Learning Management System (LMS), a series of computer-based educational modules that allows customers to become proficient with its software. Demonstrations will be available at the Aprima booth (#4915) at HIMSS 2010, March 1-3, in Atlanta.

LMS provides Aprima's clients with structured, automated training. Users are assigned a series of educational courses based on their function within the practice. Testing at the end of each course ensures successful learning before unlocking the next course in the series. This allows individuals to learn at their own speed and on their own schedules without the typical disruptions to job duties that practices experience with on-site end user training.

"LMS presents Aprima customers with many advantages over traditional training," said Cindy Barnett, VP, Implementation, Aprima Medical Software. "It makes good use of a practice's time. It's more cost-effective than on-site training. Users can work through training modules at their own pace and repeat modules when they need a refresher, something that isn't feasible with an on-site trainer. While the computer plays a role in delivering the training, we include a 'trainer-on-call' capability at no extra charge so that users can reach out to a real person if they have questions about their specific workflows. Of course, when it's time to go live, we do have trainers at the practice since people want their 'how do I do this?' questions answered right away."

Each user within the medical practice receives a unique login name and password. Each function within the practice also has its own milestones which tie to the practice's predetermined "go-live" date. Aprima is able to monitor how well users are progressing as well as set up pre-testing benchmarks in order to ensure a user's preparedness and the practice's readiness for a successful go-live.

"Aprima's LMS will prepare practices' clinical and administrative staffs to be skilled with our EHR. Once trained, practices that meet the parameters for ARRA incentive payments will be able to attest to 'meaningful use,'" said Michael Nissenbaum, CEO of Aprima. "Since we developed different modules for different roles within a practice, people are educated only on the parts of the software that are relevant to their position. This makes a lot more sense than alternatives where people would have to sit through screen after screen of content they'd never need. Our team took a great deal of care in putting this program together to make sure our clients' needs are met."
