EyeMD EMR Healthcare Systems & Advanced Data Systems Optimizing Ophthalmology Practice Automation

BONITA SPRINGS, FL and PARAMUS, NJ -- (Marketwire) -- 01/08/13 -- The EyeMD Electronic Medical Records system from EyeMD EMR Healthcare Systems (EEHS) and the MedicsPremier™ practice management system from Advanced Data Systems (ADS) have been optimized to give ophthalmology practices an extraordinary return on investment, increased revenue, greater productivity, improved patient care and an excellent patient experience.

A seamless, no cost bi-directional embedding of both systems brings the EyeMD EMR and the MedicsPremier PM together as a single, unified solution. Abdiel Marin, President of EEHS, said, "The exchange of data between EyeMD EMR and MedicsPremier is seamless and flawless. For all practical purposes, it is a single system."

David Barzillai, President of ADS, commented on how the companies also operate in a very close knit fashion by saying, "EEHS and ADS are as neatly in tune with each other as is our software, to the point where dedicated EEHS and ADS teams are in daily collaboration helping to ensure timely, coordinated, and efficient implementation and training."

"While ADS has its own MedicsDocAssistant EHR, which is excellent for a large number of specialties, ophthalmology EHR is quite unique. For that reason we wanted only to put forward the best EHR for our ophthalmology clients. After much due diligence, the decision was made to work together with EEHS. We saw EEHS and their EyeMD EMR as the ideal EHR solution for our ophthalmology clients," Mr. Barzillai said.

Mr. Marin said, "Our expertise over the past several years has been solely with EHR for ophthalmology. However, our history in medical billing gives us a unique understanding of ophthalmology PM requirements as well. For that reason, and after our own due diligence, we chose to work with ADS. Their MedicsPremier system is time tested, and we know from personal contact with clients that the system helps ophthalmology practices obtain maximum reimbursements, maintain positive cash flow, handle ophthalmology-related scheduling, and produce a full array of management and financial reports."

Samuel Guillory, MD, one of many ophthalmologists utilizing the embedded solutions provided his personal insight by saying, "Our search went on for quite some time in an effort to identify the best EHR and PM solutions for our NYC-based practice. We noted that systems were either strong on EHR but weak on PM, or vice versa. With the EyeMD EMR and MedicsPremier PM operating in unison, we have a 'best of both worlds,' single action solution strong on EHR and PM, and excellent for any ophthalmology practice."

Company and system affiliation was further exemplified when EEHS and ADS participated in the November 2012 AAO Conference at the McCormick Center in Chicago, meeting and speaking with ophthalmologists about the EyeMD EHR, the MedicsPremier PM, and the incorporating of both systems as a single solution. Both companies look forward to presenting again at the NOAO conference in New Orleans, January 25-26, 2013.

ADS is an IBM™ and Lenovo™ Business Partner. As such, clients have the added benefit of being able to obtain the hardware needed for both systems from a single source, along with the ability to backup both systems as one, further exemplifying the systems' integration.

In his session at @ThingsExpo, Tony Shan, Chief Architect at CTS, will explore the synergy of Big Data and IoT. First he will take a closer look at the Internet of Things and Big Data individually, in terms of what, which, why, where, when, who, how and how much. Then he will explore the relationship between IoT and Big Data. Specifically, he will drill down to how the 4Vs aspects intersect with IoT: Volume, Variety, Velocity and Value. In turn, Tony will analyze how the key components of IoT influence Big Data: Device, Connectivity, Context, and Intelligence. He will dive deep to the matrix...
When it comes to IoT in the enterprise, namely the commercial building and hospitality markets, a benefit not getting the attention it deserves is energy efficiency, and IoT’s direct impact on a cleaner, greener environment when installed in smart buildings. Until now clean technology was offered piecemeal and led with point solutions that require significant systems integration to orchestrate and deploy. There didn't exist a 'top down' approach that can manage and monitor the way a Smart Building actually breathes - immediately flagging overheating in a closet or over cooling in unoccupied ho...

The enterprise is being consumerized, and the consumer is being enterprised. Moore's Law does not matter anymore, the future belongs to business virtualization powered by invisible service architecture, powered by hyperscale and hyperconvergence, and facilitated by vertical streaming and horizontal scaling and consolidation. Both buyers and sellers want instant results, and from paperwork to paperless to mindless is the ultimate goal for any seamless transaction. The sweetest sweet spot in innovation is automation. The most painful pain point for any business is the mismatch between supplies a...
Mobile messaging has been a popular communication channel for more than 20 years. Finnish engineer Matti Makkonen invented the idea for SMS (Short Message Service) in 1984, making his vision a reality on December 3, 1992 by sending the first message ("Happy Christmas") from a PC to a cell phone. Since then, the technology has evolved immensely, from both a technology standpoint, and in our everyday uses for it. Originally used for person-to-person (P2P) communication, i.e., Sally sends a text message to Betty – mobile messaging now offers tremendous value to businesses for customer and empl...

You have your devices and your data, but what about the rest of your Internet of Things story? Two popular classes of technologies that nicely handle the Big Data analytics for Internet of Things are Apache Hadoop and NoSQL. Hadoop is designed for parallelizing analytical work across many servers and is ideal for the massive data volumes you create with IoT devices. NoSQL databases such as Apache HBase are ideal for storing and retrieving IoT data as “time series data.”
Clearly the way forward is to move to cloud be it bare metal, VMs or containers. One aspect of the current public clouds that is slowing this cloud migration is cloud lock-in. Every cloud vendor is trying to make it very difficult to move out once a customer has chosen their cloud. In his session at 17th Cloud Expo, Naveen Nimmu, CEO of Clouber, Inc., will advocate that making the inter-cloud migration as simple as changing airlines would help the entire industry to quickly adopt the cloud without worrying about any lock-in fears. In fact by having standard APIs for IaaS would help PaaS expl...

Who are you? How do you introduce yourself? Do you use a name, or do you greet a friend by the last four digits of his social security number? Assuming you don’t, why are we content to associate our identity with 10 random digits assigned by our phone company? Identity is an issue that affects everyone, but as individuals we don’t spend a lot of time thinking about it. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ben Klang, Founder & President of Mojo Lingo, will discuss the impact of technology on identity. Should we federate, or not? How should identity be secured? Who owns the identity? How is identity ...
