Abeo Selects WebChartMD for Transcription Platform


JOHNSON CITY, TN, March 19, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Abeo, one of the nation's leading providers of anesthesia billing, surgery center services and billing management software has selected WebChartMD as its new dictation and transcription workflow platform, said Phil Warenik, Abeo's Chief Information Officer. "Abeo chose WebChartMD over other platforms because we saw it as a key tool in helping us continue to grow our transcription business in the ambulatory surgery market," said Warenik. "The ASC (ambulatory surgery center) market has unusual workflow needs, and WebChartMD's platform meets those needs with clear advantages over other systems we vetted."

WebChartMD's web-based application is now being used by Abeo's Transcription Division in servicing the transcription needs of their network of over 100 ambulatory surgery centers around the country. "Our transcription team appreciates the simplicity of WebChartMD's Microsoft Word-based workflow," Warenik continued, 'but at the same time the platform has deep enough functionality to handle our larger volume clients and workflow needs."

"We're thrilled at the opportunity to work with Abeo," said Mark Christensen, WebChartMD's Vice President of Operations. "We've been in the ASC market for years as a platform provider for many of our other transcription company partners, and to be able to bring our expertise in that industry into service for a client like Abeo is an honor for us."

WebChartMD is offered as both a SaaS (software as a service) and a licensed application, and Abeo chose the licensed model. "For us it made sense to run WebChartMD at our own data center, including WebChartMD's telephony solution." Warenik said. "It enables us to control our own brand, from the point of infrastructure through the on-going servicing of our clients."
