Aprima EHR for Gastroenterology
The biggest problem is as Gastroenterology providers become hospital employees, their allegiance shifts from the patient to the corporate (or Government) bottom line. Gastroenterology providers are no longer professionals — Gastroenterology specialists are employees that will do the bidding of their employer, the hospital/government. Gastroenterology providers are losing their ability to choose the method and specific products to use in their procedures as these decisions are now made by the hospitals and the government-run insurance policies.
Why should you pick Aprima as your Gastroenterology EHR? With the changes in healthcare it is becoming harder for Gastroenterology providers to stay independent. The Medicare reimbursement cuts to key surgery procedures like Colonoscopy, industry challenges like ICD-10, MACRA, MIPS, PQRS, Population Health and rising costs have pushed many Gastroenterology providers right out of private practice. In fact, only 32% work in private practice today in 2016 versus 60% in 2007. It is sad that Gastroenterology providers helps people enjoy day-to-day life, but suffer themselves with the stress of healthcare changes. Healthcare is moving away from fee for service to performance-based incentives, and that is why Gastroenterologists need an Electronic Health Records system like Aprima that collects data and aggregates that data to help Gastroenterology. Adding to the strain, administrative tasks and outdated technology, such as EMRs that require bridges to practice management or scheduling software, are consuming more and more time. Due to its complexity, Gastroenterology providers has some of the most demanding documentation and billing requirements, so it’s no wonder that 33% of Gastroenterology physicians spend over 15 hours a week on administrative tasks.
