New Medicfusion/Herfert Software Partnership is Good News for Herfert Customers
July 5, 2013 – RALEIGH, NORTH CAROLINA – Medicfusion EHR and Herfert Software have announced a partnership that expands Herfert’s electronic health records capability and enables customers to qualify for government funding with timely implementation of an EHR system.
“This is good news for Herfert users,” said company founder Dr. Richard Herfert, DC. “If you get the EHR interface set up and working prior to October 1, you may qualify for up to $39,000 in HITECH Incentive Funding.”
Based in Eastpointe, Michigan, Herfert Software has developed a strong customer base since its founding in 1980. The partnership with Medicfusion provides their users with a complete HITECH-certified EHR package, an important benefit in today’s changing healthcare environment. The HITECH Act (Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health) represents the nation’s first substantial commitment of government resources to support the widespread adoption of electronic health records.
“The use of EHR has become a major health care focus, and chiropractics must embrace this technology to survive,” said Medicfusion Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Shayne Sundholm. “We are pleased to help advance this process by partnering with a respected, long-standing company like Herfert Software.”
Medicfusion is an industry-leading EHR provider based in Raleigh, North Carolina. Both Medicfusion and Herfert customers will benefit from the partnership, which Dr. Herfert and Shayne Sundholm called “a real win-win for our clients.”
For example, Medicfusion users can now take advantage of Herfert’s advanced billing software as part of its complete package to the chiropractic community. Herfert customers will find a number of reasons to add Medicfusion to Herfert billing.
Since Medicfusion is HITECH Certified, Herfert customers are now eligible for government incentives when they implement EHR. These funds are typically more than enough to cover costs associated with implementation and support of the EHR system.
The Medicfusion and Herfert systems were both designed by chiropractors with a chiropractor’s specific EHR needs in mind. The result is digital speed and virtual elimination of paperwork, benefits that will save chiropractors significant time and money and also be much appreciated by patients.
In addition, the transition is painless for Herfert customers. Their existing system will remain in place and smoothly transition to Medicfusion, making EHR compliance easy and affordable.
