ZirMed, a health information connectivity and management solutions company, recently announced a partnership with EHR Integration Services, a consultant group that helps transform complex data integration issues into clinical and operational workflow improvements, to provide Allscripts and GE Healthcare customers with seamless integration into ZirMed's revenue cycle management, clinical communications, and analytics solutions.
This partnership will enable Allscripts PM and GE Centricity Group Management users to leverage the full range of functionality available through ZirMed's advanced network and platform. In addition to conducting eligibility, claims, remits, print and online billing via ZirMed's solutions, Allscripts PM and GE Centricity Group Management technology customers will also have seamless access to the following ZirMed solutions:
• PatientNotebook: a portal that enables secure messaging between providers and patients, manages statements, supports online credit/debit card payments, and keeps information up-to-date;
• ZPay Collect: a virtual terminal that allows for fast and easy in-office collections, with support for all forms of payment; and
• Clinical Link: a HIPAA-compliant communications platform that enables providers using any EHR or practice management system to share referrals and clinical information electronically.
This partnership enables ZirMed's solutions to be completely embedded into Allscripts PM and GE Centricity Group Management workflows, granting users—which include both small and large medical practices, academic medical centers, hospitals and health systems, integrated delivery networks, and billing companies—seamless access to ZirMed's solutions. EHR Integration Services will integrate ZirMed's robust technology with Allscripts' PM and GE's Centricity Group Management and EHR systems in a customized environment, allowing for quick and easy access to enhanced capabilities.
"We are seeing tremendous demand from EHR and practice management users to leverage our solutions, like our new Patient Estimation and Patient Notebook tools, in a way that is integrated into existing workflows," says Tom Butts, CEO of ZirMed. "EHR Integration Services has in-depth knowledge of Allscripts and GE practice management systems as well as ZirMed's solutions, so their experts can help provider organizations get the most value out of our platform and network."
