Whether the Affordable Care Act is funded for the long run or not, it will be introducing an influx of patients to a pool of physicians that are already strained. Healthcare facilities and private physicians are getting ready for an estimated 30 million new patients looking for health services.
Since there is already a lack of physicians, experts agree the best way to deal with this problem is by using technology to manage the available resources more effectively. CareCloud, a provider of cloud-based practice management, electronic health records (EHR), and medical billing software and services, and ZocDoc, a service providing four million patients each month with doctor or dentist appointments online, have formed a partnership to integrate their services for providing healthcare professionals with improved IT solutions.
