Pulmonary EHR

Aprima EHR for Pulmonary



The biggest problem is as Pulmonologists become hospital employees, their allegiance shifts from the patient to the corporate (or Government) bottom line. Pulmonary providers are no longer professionals — Pulmonary providers are employees that will do the bidding of their employer, the hospital/government. Pulmonary providers are losing their ability to choose the method and specific products to use in their surgeries as these decisions are now made by the hospitals and the government-run insurance policies.

Why should you pick Aprima as your Pulmonary EHR? With the changes in healthcare it is becoming harder for Pulmonary providers to stay independent. The Medicare reimbursement cuts to key surgery services, industry challenges like ICD-10, MACRA, MIPS, PQRS, Population Health and rising costs have pushed many Pulmonary 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 Pulmonologists help 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 Pulmonary providers need an Electronic Health Records system like Aprima that collects data and aggregates that data to help the Pulmonary community. Adding to the strain, administrative tasks and outdated technology, such as EMRs that require bridges to practice management or scheduling software, are consuming more and more time.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, Pulmonary providers have some of the most demanding documentation and billing requirements, so it’s no wonder that 33% of Pulmonary physicians spend over 15 hours a week on administrative tasks.
