"NueMD has really made us a lot more responsive to our patients." [cont...]

Transcript: 

I’m not kidding when I say I love this software. I’ve talked this software up quite a bit because it is. To access the information remotely is so easy. If a patient needs me in the middle of the night, I can get up and go to my home computer and still access the software.  It looks the same as it does on my desktop here. It was very quick to learn how to use the software. Very little training software whatsoever.

We recently added a nurse practitioner and it took no time at all to add her to the system and we were sending claims and everything within minutes. Less time on paperwork. The electronic claims have been phenomenal. The appointment reminders that the software can do has been great for making sure that our patients get here on time and when their supposed to be. We’ve had less missed appointments that way. It really has made us a lot more responsive to our patients.

For smaller practices such as our self, the larger software packages are out of reach financially. However, NueMD has quite a few different ways that they can bill and the price is incredible. It has made it a lot more possible for us to do more with the software than we were able to before.

Most Patients Not Saving for Healthcare and Are Burdened by Unexpected Costs

There may be a very clear reason why your practice has difficulty getting patients to purchase care protocols that they need to ensure their health and longevity: They just don’t save any money for their healthcare needs, and to be billed for services is not something they can afford.

Even for their health and well-being, many patients just don’t have the room in their budgets for another bill.

Perhaps they need to listen to the old adage: Without your health you have nothing. [cont...]

Study: More Believe in Information Sharing than Likely Exists

We’re an open-mouth society. Anything that can be said is likely going to be said despite the contents of its quality. Utterances out don’t always mean excellence. But should we start putting on the brakes and

watching our mouths? Depends on your personal opinion and view of the First Amendment, perhaps, but free is free (there are some exceptions, of course), and in regard to medical sharing and information publishing, we as a society don’t seem to be backing down. [cont...]
