Sheridan Healthcare, Inc. Unveils Version 5.1 of PremiEHR Electronic Health Records Solution
SUNRISE, Fla. --(Business Wire)--
Sheridan Healthcare, Inc., a national hospital-based, multispecialty
practice management company and the second largest neonatology services
provider in the nation, has announced the updated 5.1 version of
PremiEHR, neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) electronic health record
"PremiEHR 5.1 features noteworthy upgrades to billing, clinical and
global functions," explained Sheridan Executive Vice President and Chief
Operating Officer Caroline Coyle. "We enable healthcare businesses,
physician practices and providers to focus on their patients rather than
on their IT infrastructure."
Billing enhancements were a primary driver for the PremiEHR 5.1 upgrade.
The new "work list" feature streamlines the billing process with
internal communication systems for clinicians and billing staff and
automatically creates a short list of incomplete billing records before
they are sent off for final billing.
The upgrade's clinical enhancements include the Lexi-Comp update, a data
update for information used for drug-to-drug alerts. The new "PremiEHR
Links" feature enables users to add important reference materials either
as links or PDF files, whih adds a research repository function to
PremiEHR 5.1 beyond its traditional electronic medical record
Additional improvements found in PremiEHR 5.1 include a user/security
audit log and a global tracking system of changes made at the facility
level as well as any changes to usernames and passwords. This helps the
user be more compliant with usernames and password changes that occur as
the system becomes larger and requires tracking of additional account
creations and deletions.
One of the most comprehensive modular programs available to NICUs,
PremiEHR has processed more than 500,000 patient days at more than 29
NICUs. With 26 features certified in accordance with the criteria
adopted by the Secretary of Health and Human Services, the software is
capable of supporting providers with Stage 1 Meaningful Use measures
required to qualify for funding under the American Recovery and
PremiEHR offers a customized web-based interface that can be delivered
to providers over a full-service cloud or as a licensed software product
with secure access for providers, both at the facilities and remotely.
PremiEHR and its suite of companion products, that include next
generation revenue cycle management, quality analytics and a health
information exchange, were designed and built as an integration-friendly
platform using a service-oriented architecture that is highly scalable
and offers smooth integration with core hospital or independent
physician group electronic medical record systems.
