Strategic Partnership provides chiropractic offices with specialty-specific, cloud-based solutions to improve workflow efficiency, care delivery and financial performance
Irvine, CA – May 8, 2015 – Kareo, the leading provider of cloud-based medical office software for independent medical practices, today announced it has entered into a strategic partnership with Medicfusion, a provider of electronic health record (EHR) software solutions built specifically for chiropractors, by chiropractors. Medicfusion’s chiropractic-focused EHR will integrate with Kareo’s suite of billing and practice management (PM) solutions to help chiropractic offices optimize workflow and improve billing processes.
“We are excited to partner with Medicfusion as we expand our offerings to the chiropractic space,” said Dan Rodrigues, founder and CEO of Kareo. “Chiropractic offices are increasingly moving to concierge or cash-only models of care due to the complexities associated with submitting insurance claims and increasing regulatory mandates. However, with an integrated PM and billing solution, chiropractors will have the tools they need to run an agile practice that is able to efficiently serve both insurance and cash-based patients.”
Through this partnership, Medicfusion’s customers will gain access to key functionalities from Kareo including automated patient scheduling, appointment reminders, secure messaging, insurance eligibility checks, enhanced claims submissions, customized patient encounter forms and online payment services.
“There is a significant need for an integrated solution that can handle not only the clinical aspects of an office, but also meets a chiropractor’s unique administrative and financial demands,” said Dean Rottinghaus, DC; Founder of Medicfusion EMR. “Partnering with Kareo allows us to provide what we believe to be the most robust EHR/PM solution for chiropractors. Our integrated system will give clients the freedom to focus on care, while improving patient engagement and ensuring financial stability in a vastly evolving healthcare landscape.”
