Converting EHR/PM Data from TRAKnet Podiatry EHR

Thursday, November 20th, 2014

When it comes to Podiatry EHR software, not all systems are created equal. Having a reliable electronic health record solution that is 2014 Edition certified and ICD-10 ready is of the utmost importance for Podiatry Practices looking to attest for Meaningful Use, improve quality of care and increase revenue. Many practices are learning this the hard way, specifically those using TRAKnet Podiatry EHR.

After TRAKnet’s previous owners suddenly went out of business and decided to sell the EHR and Practice Management platform in 2013, users of the software have begun experiencing problems, resulting in more and more podiatry practices seeking an alternative for their EHR and billing needs. 1st Providers Choice is one of the leading Podiatry EHR solutions that physicians are turning to – both for the quality of our EHR/PM system and the dedication of our staff.

1st Providers Choice has a data conversion utility set up that makes it easy for our technicians to move EHR and Patient data over. We also offer the possibility of converting transactions and patient financial data, something that few vendors offer. Because we have experience performing EHR data conversions from most major EHR systems, we know what files to look for and how to minimize the pain of moving from one system to another.

The different categories of data we can convert include:

  • Patient demographics
  • Patient visit notes
  • The multimedia folder
  • Scans and images
  • Labs and test results
  • Other clinical data
  • Insurance companies
  • Referring doctors
  • Patient schedules

To start the TRAKnet data conversion process, all we need is a backup of your important data files. Our technicians will log in to your system remotely, convert your valuable patient and billing data in real time, and transfer it to the new system. Your data will never leave your facility and your patient data will be completely secure.

If you would like to convert your TRAKnet data to 1st Providers Choice’s highly rated Podiatry EHR software, we can help. Call 480-782-1116 today to get started!

Data Conversions Enable Allscripts MyWay Users to Switch to a Certified EHR

Wednesday, October 17th, 2012

Many Allscripts users were shocked earlier this month when the company made public that it would no longer be selling the MyWay product and that further development on the software would be coming to a stop. The fact that the MyWay system will not meet requirements for meaningful use stage 2 (nor will it be able to process ICD-10 codes) has led many users to consider other electronic charting alternatives. One of these options is 1st Providers Choice – a fully certified EMR system with custom solutions for more than 30 medical specialties.

While Allscripts has offered to upgrade MyWay users to their Professional Suite system at no cost, Professional Suite isn’t likely to meet the needs of all physicians – specifically those in smaller practices. Another important thing to note is that, because MyWay and Professional Suite are starkly different system, making the transition from one product to the other will require a data conversion, implementation and training. Knowing this, physicians may choose to take on a new EMR implementation with a software system that best meets their needs – and that might not necessarily be Allscripts Professional Suite. Plus, amid rumors of an Allscripts buyout, healthcare professionals may feel more at ease with a stable, more customer-oriented vendor.

With countless Allscripts data conversions completed, 1st Providers Choice remains committed to providing a quality EMR solution for healthcare professionals across a wide range of medical fields. Our EMR software is both meaningful use and ICD-10 compliant and physicians find that learning to use our EMR has never been easier.

Are you dissatisfied with Allscripts MyWay or Allscripts Enterprise? Thinking about transitioning to a new, fully certified EMR? Contact us today at 480-782-1116 for more information about converting your Allscripts data to 1st Providers Choice.
