Florida Cardiology Chooses Intergy by Sage to Integrate Practice Management and Electronic Health Records

TAMPA, Fla., April 29 /PRNewswire/ -- To achieve its goal of enterprise-wide seamless integration to enhance patient care delivery and business office processes, Florida Cardiology, a multi-site medical practice with 18 cardiologists, has selected Sage Software's Intergy EHR by Sage Electronic Health Records and Intergy by Sage Practice Management System. Florida Cardiology will deploy these web-based integrated solutions at eight office locations equipped with full diagnostic facilities and a freestanding cardiac catheterization laboratory and two satellite offices in the greater Orlando area.

"We needed a vendor that could provide cardio-centric functionality with a comprehensive array of fully integrated clinical, administrative and financial features. We also wanted a CCHIT-certified solution to ensure easy interface with hospitals, pharmacies and labs," said Karan G. Reddy, M.D., Treasurer, Florida Cardiology. "Intergy by Sage met all of our needs."

Florida Cardiology's approximately 120 clinicians and clinical support staff provide comprehensive adult cardiology services that include noninvasive/invasive diagnostic procedures and therapeutic interventions. Intergy EHR's robust set of cardiology specific templates -- including content for general cardiology, interventional cardiology, electrophysiology, and vascular subspecialties -- will enable improved care as well as timely, accurate coding and billing to facilitate reimbursement.

According to Dr. Reddy, the staff were particularly impressed with Intergy's automated practice management features such as denial tracking; data capture for pay-for-performance documentation; a patient portal for patient registration, scheduling, prescription refills and reminders; and its multiple options for data entry. "I'm also very excited by Practice Analytics by Sage, which provides the system's business intelligence capabilities. As a report junkie, I like having the ability to query so many different information components at the click of a button."

"The project of selecting an EHR/PM system is vital for a successful medical practice," said Sharon Howard, senior vice president, Sales and Marketing for Sage Software. "Florida Cardiology's commitment to continually improve safety and patient care is further demonstrated by its painstaking evaluation process. Through this process, they've helped ensure they implement a unifying system that facilitates the seamless sharing of patient and clinical data enterprise-wide and with all points of care."
