Good Time for a Good Investment

How can we protect the investment of our customers? We believe that in some point in time, the ideal EMR will in fact emerge. Until that point in time, in this particular area of where you are today and what the technology of the future does, we can provide an important link.

How Fast is Fast Enough?

The idea of a “time disconnect” between what vendors can deliver and what customers actually need is an important one. It makes me think about the beginning process of where a charge starts today. A physician is not accustomed to spending more than 3 to 5 seconds maximum on financially documenting what he or she did.

White Plume Perspectives: An ICD-10 Future

Thinking about what physicians face in the future, it’s really daunting. We’ve got meaningful use, the changing of processes that they’ve used for the last 15-25 years, and from a clinical perspective that’s a tremendous change. The government recognizes that and the industry recognized that—why do you think they are offering dollars as an incentive?

Don’t Slow Administration

The easier questions to answer are when the administrative people ask—whether it be the billing person, the charge entry person, the coder—“Will this slow me down? Will I be as fast as I am today?” That’s an easy one. The answer is, “We’re going to accelerate where you are today.

Smoothing Workflow

A small gap can cause everything to fall apart. Think about if you didn’t put the oil plug back in your car after getting an oil change.

White Plume Bridges the Gap

Practices often are committed to getting an EMR and currently have a PM System that works very well, but are not sure exactly where we fit in that equation. The place where we fit is right in the middle of EMRs and PM Systems. Those two systems were originally designed to do two different things.


EMR and PMS Decisions

One of the biggest challenges that we hear from practice managers today about how they make decisions about the EMR of the future, is whether to choose an integrated EMR and PM System or a best of breed approach. We’ve got customers that are choosing both and there’s no single answer that’s right for everybody. Regardless of what your particular strategy is, White Plume can help bridge that gap.
