Dallas, TX, 12/6/2017 - Aprima Medical Software, a leading provider of innovative electronic health records (EHR), practice management (PM) and revenue cycle management solutions (RCM) for medical practices, today announced integration of the Aprima EHR with DocBuddy, a comprehensive workflow solution powered by voice recognition that is tightly integrated with the Aprima EHR, to deliver more convenient and efficient provider documentation when using an iOS® or Android® device.

With DocBuddy, providers can dictate into any part of a patient note, whether they are in the office or on the go, allowing providers to efficiently insert macros of common phrases, diagnoses and other objective findings into patient records in seconds, leaving the subjective fields to be filled out as needed with free text voice recognition. DocBuddy centralizes and streamlines access to medical records from anywhere as long as there is an Internet connection. This solution goes far beyond traditional voice recognition by adding a fast and easy mobile workflow that healthcare providers can readily access from their phones.

"As soon as I began using DocBuddy in conjunction with my Aprima EHR, I was able to reduce my documentation time by more than 45 minutes a day," said Kavi Sachar, MD, of Hand Surgery Associates in Denver. "I am now able to see more patients, which is a tremendous boost to our practice's bottom line. The other physicians in my practice are experiencing the same results."

"DocBuddy empowers doctors to spend less time documenting and performing administrative tasks while delivering simplified access to their data on a mobile device," said Andy D'Agostino, CEO of DocBuddy. "Our integration with Aprima enables providers to take advantage of the speed, mobility and accuracy that our solution provides. The paperwork and recordkeeping process required of providers takes time and energy that could be spent giving care to more patients. DocBuddy helps providers eliminate that problem with its comprehensive, easy to use toolkit and innovative workflow."

Matching the EHR with clinician workflows has long been one of the cornerstones of the Aprima EHR, with its no- template design and adaptive learning functionality. The flow of the visit in the software is dynamic and flexible, while also meeting all of the administrative and bill requirements of a changing environment. By integrating DocBuddy with the Aprima EHR, providers now have even greater mobility when creating and accessing their patient records. The integration leverages metadata to automatically place clinical data in the appropriate section of the patient note, making information reportable and easy to find.

"Aprima has always been dedicated to leveraging new technologies to make it easier for physicians to practice medicine and run their businesses," said Neil Simon, COO for Aprima. "We are pleased to offer this integration with DocBuddy to our customers, which can help extend the efficiency of their Aprima EHR software."
