Comprehensive Clinical Content – The foundation of Amicore Integrated Management is a complete set of ready-to-use clinical guidelines to fully document and manage patient care. Written by clinicians for clinicians, these guidelines follow the way that you work, supporting all elements of subjective, objective, assessment and plan (SOAP) charting. Amicore’s clinical content is specialty-specific and can also be customized for your practice.
Clinical Management – Amicore documents and assists clinicians throughout the care process. You have easy access, via the current documentation, to all past clinical history at single click. This includes past and current medications, diagnoses, past medical, family and social history, health maintenance reminders, allergies, test results, and scanned correspondence. Before you enter the exam room, all intake information performed by the nurse or medical assistant is captured and available in the current visit note.
Scheduling – Amicore lets your busy staff make appointments for multiple office locations using your specific scheduling rules. Schedulers can use Amicore’s flexible interface to see one or more clinicians, rooms, or equipment schedules across multiple offices. You can also take advantage of patient notifications for recalls and appointments.
Patient Management – Office staff can quickly enter and register patients, either as a mini or full registration. Registration is in a single database shared by the PMS and EMR eliminating redundant data entry and configuration. The practice has a complete audit trail of all patient authorizations (for HIPAA compliance) as well as all appointments, referrals, billing notices and personnel access to the patient’s record. After patient check-in, Amicore Integrated Management’s practice workflow gives the care team a complete patient status at a glance. All members of the care team follow the patient through “Patient Tracking” seamlessly contributing their part to a professionally orchestrated patient visit.
Billing/Accounts Receivable – Amicore Integrated Management shines in its ability to help administrators and billing professionals support fee-for-service and managed care billing while fully complying with HIPAA regulations. Amicore Integrated Management includes up-to-date ICD-9 and CPT codes for accurate billing. You can bill through multiple Tax IDs; bill by patient or by family and you can electronically file bills with payers that comply with all proper diagnosis and procedure codes. With Amicore Integrated Management’s integrated clinical and financial capabilities, it’s easy to handle co-payments. Amicore Integrated Management uses flexible rules for bill formats, rebill days, minimum balance, maximum bills, and more. Amicore Integrated Management provides point of service (clinical note) charge entry, code review, and CCI checks for optimal billing.
Referral Management – Amicore Integrated Management helps you document, track, and obtain authorization for all outbound referrals. You can also integrate inbound referrals with scheduling and billing. Amicore Integrated Management also generates automatic referral letters, ensuring better service to providers on whom your practice may depend.
Messaging – Amicore Integrated Management provides inter-office messaging for easy and discreet communication between the front office and providers.
Task Management – Amicore Integrated Management lets you document and assign workload, screen tasks based on functional needs, and set priorities and due dates to manage work queues. A single work space ensures you can view and act on lab results, prescription referrals, and call-backs for each physician with a single click.
Paper Scanning – Amicore provides scanned document management for administrative and clinical documents. Front Office can scan and link insurance cards to the appropriate responsible party as well as consent forms eliminating paper storage. Clinical correspondence is scanned to the patient record and is only assessable by permission. Paper medical records can be scanned prior to implementation eliminating paper charts. Inbound faxes can be automatically routed to the scanning module.
Flexible, Comprehensive Reporting – Create financial and operational reports to analyze your practice and identify areas for improvement. View those reports on-screen, print them out, or store them electronically.
HIPAA-Compliant Security – Amicore Integrated Management supports role-based and user-based authorized access to secure transactions and operations. For example, a complete audit log shows which users have accessed Protected Health Information (PHI). By restricting non-clinical staff’s access to clinical/encounter information, Amicore helps further protect patient confidentiality.
Patient History – Access unified views of a patient’s history on-screen – including prior visits, prior diagnoses, and previous test results from laboratory, radiology or other areas. You decide which elements of the patient’s record should be viewed in each encounter or pulled into the current clinical note.
Health Maintenance Reminders—On-screen alerts let you know about disease-management or practice-directed protocols during your interaction with the patient. You can also use proactive patient notifications during scheduling.
Lab Orders and Results Management – Amicore is fully integrated with lab vendors such as Quest and LabCorp and lets you issue electronic orders for lab tests and view subsequent results on screen.
Electronic Prescriptions – Create and send electronic prescriptions directly to the patient’s chosen pharmacy. For quality assurance, an integrated drug-interaction database helps you screen out potentially harmful interactions prior to issuing the prescription.
Your Choice of Documentation – With advanced features for voice recognition and handwriting recognition, Amicore Integrated Management provides clinicians a full variety of documentation methods, ensuring simplicity, speed, accuracy, and completeness. Integrated clinical guidelines offer a structured vocabulary that converts a few menu clicks into plain-English patient notes. With a single click, you can dictate part of any note into your tablet for transcription. With Amicore, it’s your choice.
Electronic Billing – Amicore Integrated Management supports billing through a third-party clearinghouse.
Flexible Deployment Options – While one of Amicore Integrated Management’s strengths lies in its unique integration of clinical and practice-management functions in a single system, you may not want or need the full range of features. If it suits your practice, you can choose to implement Amicore by starting with an individual clinical or practice-management module.
