WICHITA, Kan., Sept. 24, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Pulse Systems, Inc., an industry-leading provider of Electronic Health Records (EHR), Practice Management and Revenue Cycle Management solutions, announced today its new client, Georgia Bone & Joint Surgeons, P.C., has selected the Pulse Practice Management and EHR solutions for its growing Orthopedic practice. Georgia Bone & Joint Surgeons was an early adopter of electronic medical records and has now chosen Pulse's electronic healthcare management solutions to replace the practice's previous system due to Pulse's customization and ease of use.

Georgia Bone & Joint Surgeons, located in Cartersville, GA, has used a practice management system for the past 19 years and a version of an electronic medical record (EMR) for almost 10 years. However, as the practice grew and regulatory requirements increased, they began to search out a more robust, interoperable solution – an integrated EHR with practice management capabilities.

"Since we were already satisfying our need to be electronic for efficiency purposes, we have taken our time to find the best system for us," said Cindy McCreary, administrator of Georgia Bone & Joint Surgeons, P.C. "We decided on Pulse for many reasons, but probably the most important was that it would do, or could do, anything we needed and was very easy to use and customize. We have a physical therapy department, MRI, and surgery center, so the ability to do specialized records and billing was crucial, as well as the integration between EHR and practice management programs. In addition, Pulse would allow our doctors to continue to function just as they do now if they wish." McCreary added, "I cannot say enough about the positive experience that we have had during our transition to Pulse. From sales, training, implementation, to go-live, we had a dedicated team throughout each step of the process. The personal attention and accessibility of the Pulse team is unparalleled."

With Pulse's advanced clinical data conversion services, Pulse will convert both clinical and non-clinical data from other EHR vendors, making the transition to Pulse smooth, efficient, and on schedule for its provider partners.

Pulse's practice management solution easily scales from small physician practices to large physician groups, multi-site practices, ambulatory surgical centers, Management Services Organizations and Integrated Delivery Networks. Pulse complements its software with an unparalleled host of services designed to optimize productivity by applying automated workflow logic capable of seamlessly integrating financial, clinical and administrative processes into one comprehensive system.

The Pulse Complete EMR/EHR is one of the most robust and versatile electronic health record systems on the market today. It offers easy-to-use workflow and documentation flexibility for providers. Each provider in a practice can customize Pulse to meet personal workflow needs, thereby increasing productivity and efficiency. The Pulse Complete EHR offers additional customization with specialty-specific features and templates, all of which can be integrated seamlessly.

Dr. Tana Goering, Pulse's Chief Medical Officer, commented, "This relationship truly emphasizes the efficiency, adaptability and ease of use of our fully integrated practice management and EHR solutions. Georgia Bone & Joint conducted thorough research of competing systems in the marketplace and the fact that they selected Pulse is a testament to the quality of our user-friendly solutions. We will continue to work with the professional staff at Georgia Bone & Joint through a successful partnership."
