‘Game-Changing’ Next Generation Electronic Health Records
SOMERSET, NJ–(Marketwired – May 8, 2017) – MTBC (NASDAQ: MTBC) (NASDAQ: MTBCP), a leading provider of mHealth and cloud-based clinical and practice management solutions, today announced the phase one launch of its voice-enabled, cloud-based electronic health records (EHR) solution, talkEHR™, scheduled for June 1, 2017.
“We’re excited to announce the first physicians’ office to go live with talkEHR in June, a critical milestone on the path to our nationwide product rollout,” said Jonathan Bertman, MD, FAAFP, who serves as MTBC’s Chief Medical Officer and is leading the development and launch of talkEHR. He continued, “Dr. Mehnaz Haq, a New Jersey internist who was also an early user of MTBC’s highly ranked legacy EHR, will be the first among a group of phase one physicians who will help us prepare our game-changing clinical solution for its upcoming nationwide deployment.”
The development and launch of talkEHR is being led by Dr. Bertman, who is supported by MTBC’s global IT team of more than 200 professionals. Dr. Bertman has practiced medicine in Rhode Island for nearly 20 years and is a pioneer in the EHR industry. Prior to joining MTBC, Dr. Bertman founded AmazingCharts® and led the development, launch and strategic growth of its EHR, which was praised for its ease of use and, under his leadership became one of the most popular EHRs among small to medium sized practices – the largest segment of the ambulatory physician market.
talkEHR is designed to utilize natural language processing and artificial intelligence to empower providers to focus on practicing medicine, rather than repetitive typing, clicking and other manual tasks that are one of the most frequently cited reasons for physician burnout and patient dissatisfaction. talkEHR also incorporates an integrated, cloud-based and mobile app suite of solutions, including practice management and tools that allow easy patient engagement and participation in their care, and is seamlessly integrated with MTBC’s revenue cycle management offering. In February 2017, talkEHR achieved MU3 ONC Health IT certification (commonly referred to as Meaningful Use Stage 3 certification).
