Spring Medical Systems Announces Strategic Partnership with Nuesoft Technologies to Streamline Clinical Processes and Enhance Patient Care

HOUSTON – Spring Medical Systems, a leading provider of software solutions for small- and medium-sized medical practices, announced today that it has formed a strategic partnership with Nuesoft Technologies to provide an integrated electronic health records (EHR) and practice management system (PMS) for smaller practices. This tightly integrated and cost-effective EHR/PMS solution is one of the only systems to support Mac or Mac/Windows combination offices, and is the only solution for Linux platforms.

Through the agreement, Spring Medical Systems’ EHR application, SpringCharts®, will be integrated with Nuesoft’s Internet-based NueMD® to streamline clinical processes, increase efficiency and improve quality of care through real-time sharing of data across the practice. The solution will provide medical practices with a full scale offering to manage both the clinical and business sides of a medical practice and includes a certified interface based on Health Level 7 (HL7) standards between both products. The solution will be offered through a comprehensive joint sales and marketing initiative.

“Our strategic partnership is a win-win as it combines the unique resources of both our companies to create an affordable and seamless solution for physicians,” said Nuesoft Technologies President and CEO Massoud Alibakhsh. “Spring Medical Systems offers an affordable and intuitive clinical solution to improve quality of care for patients, and is a perfect match for NueMD, which simplifies the complex reimbursement and financial element of a medical practice.”

“This partnership delivers the most important goals of any medical practice — patient safety, healthcare quality, and efficiency — in one, easy-to-use solution,” said Jack Smyth, CEO of Spring Medical Systems. “Spring Medical Systems recognizes that smaller practices need technology solutions that fit their needs and is dedicated to providing top quality and affordable solutions.”
