Overview of All Med
Quality of Care and QA program
As All Med has expanded, clinical protocols have been put in place to ensure the delivery of the highest quality clinical care. The Company currently has a thorough Quality Assurance program in place that is overseen by a Quality Assurance/Continuing Quality Improvement (CQI) Committee. In addition, All Med’s medical director and management work diligently to enforce all HIPAA compliance guidelines.
The Company also attempts to practice preventive medicine wherever possible. Cancer prevention is targeted to the age-appropriate screening of gynecologic conditions in addition to screening for breast cancer, prostate cancer, colon cancer, and lung cancer. Coronary heart disease risk prevention is ongoing by several risk factors (lipid profile and LDL-C lowering therapy, beta blocker s/p MI, antithrombotic therapy), and for heart failure (ACEI/ARB, LV assessment); noninvasive coronary and vascular heart disease and peripheral vascular testing as well as Cardiology assessment is available onsite.
Diabetes mellitus QA includes the parameters set forth by the NY Diabetes Association. This includes the use of Diabetes Educators in the patients’ self-directed monitoring and proper use of medications including insulin preparations and dietary control, screening for depression, Podiatric and Ophthalmologic yearly assessments, targeted vaccinations, aspirin, lipid-lowering and ACE-inhibitor medications, and periodic BP, serologic (A1C, LDL-c) and urine (protein/creatinine) screenings; smoking cessation screening is performed.
Overview of EMR
All Med has implemented a state of the art Electronic Medical Records (“EMR”) system and is one of the leading EMRs in the country. The EMR is designed to create a computerized, digital record of a patient’s medical care which allows providers to have quick and easy access to this information, so they can coordinate care and minimize the chance of medical errors.
Our system is state of the art software that will allow All Med to transition from paper records to electronic records. The EMR is a leader amongst its peers with approximately 2,000 current customers across the country and the system has been certified by the Commission for Healthcare Information Technology. The system combines a front-end practice management system which will allow All Med to better schedule and manage its patients across its three facilities with a solid back-end billing system which allow electronic patient statement processing, electronic claims processing, eligibility verification, patient correspondence, and direct deposit. The system is fully equipped for e-prescribing and direct connection to All Med’s laboratory partners.
All Med believes the adoption of an EMR system will greatly enhance the patient experience and complement the implementation and review of quality measures.
