meridianEMR Launches Patient Check-In System Capitalizing on Apple iPad Features

LIVINGSTON, N.J., May 4 /PRNewswire/ -- meridianEMR, Inc., a leading provider of electronic health records systems and advanced healthcare analytics for urology and surgical practices, today has announced the launch of a new feature-rich patient check-in system that takes full advantage of the iPad's user friendly touch screen, pleasing graphics, and efficiency.

According to Michael Custode, CEO of meridianEMR, Inc., patients of all ages can enter personal data such as patient demographics, medications, family, medical and surgical history through this highly secured and HIPAA compliant application with ease and accuracy.

"One of our most important priorities is to make patients partners in their own care and this is exactly what the system does. By delivering information and services to both physicians and patients in a variety of ways, a full functioning patient portal helps maintain a seamless communication between a patient and physician while improving the overall office efficiency," said Custode.

The application can easily be accessed through the physician's web site, so patients can enter their data, as well as check lab results and other clinical information, prior to any office visit.  This measure saves time and money for physicians and staff, while providing patients with a better office visit.

"Physicians are looking for new and innovative ways to improve the speed and efficiency of office operations.  Our patient check-in system is a perfect example on how new technology is reshaping the medical world. By running on an iPad directly, the check-in system avoids performance issues forced by the remote desktop software that our competitors need to use," added Custode.

meridianEMR will be offering "live" demonstrations of their urology specific products at the American Urological Association (AUA) 2010 Annual Meeting in San Francisco, May 29 - June 1, at booth #3335. Representatives from meridianEMR will be on-hand to answer all questions about the patient check-in system and all other components of their urologyEHR.
