MTBC Launches ChartScribe(tm), an EHR-Integrated Transcription Service that Helps Providers Transition to an EHR and Meet Meaningful Use Stage 2

SOMERSET, NJ, May 10, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- MTBC, a leading electronic health record (EHR), practice and revenue cycle management company, today announced the launch of ChartScribe™, a fully integrated transcription service that enables healthcare providers to avoid lost productivity when adopting an EHR and satisfy the requirements of Meaningful Use Stage 2.

Digital patient charts, which are created by leveraging an EHR, are becoming increasingly important in the interconnected healthcare industry. They enable healthcare providers to optimize decision making, ensure the continuity and coordination of care, and earn Meaningful Use incentives.

While the advantages of using an EHR are clear, industry studies consistently demonstrate that many practitioners, particularly in small practices, struggle to find the time and technical know-how to create their own digital patient charts. MTBC's ChartScribe™ addresses this challenge by enabling practitioners to easily dictate notes from patient visits and have them converted into searchable text that is automatically inserted in the appropriate fields within the patient's chart.

Explaining the advantages of ChartScribe™, Dr. Glenn Zeidman of Z Wound Care, McComb, Mississippi, explained, "MTBC's ChartScribe™ has simplified my workflow by avoiding the need to manually type data into my EHR. I simply create an audio recording and it goes directly into my patient charts. It has enabled me to save time, reduce personnel expenses, meet Meaningful Use requirements and treat more patients."

"Under Meaningful Use Stage 2 rules, patient charting is more important than ever," said MTBC Vice Chairman David Rosenblum. "That is why it's critical to make the process of charting as efficient and intuitive as possible. ChartScribe™ is built around a provider's workflow and offers providers an efficient method to manage and update charts, ensuring a smooth transition to an EHR with the least amount of disruption to practice workflow."

Through ChartScribe™, providers can simply upload their digital audio dictation into MTBC's practice portal and receive updated patient charts within MTBC's EHR. Since ChartScribe™ is fully integrated with MTBC's proprietary EHR ChartsPro™, users' patient charts and data will be seamlessly updated and will be readily available to all participating clinicians.
