, the fastest-growing provider of , , and software and services, today announced the next generation release of CareCloud Charts, the company’s cloud-based EHR solution. Designed in concert with dozens of physicians and group practices, this release features powerful new capabilities – rapid charting, intelligent task management, real-time patient flows – to help doctors dramatically speed up clinical encounters while maintaining control over the administration of their offices. This critical milestone, which comes at the heels of CareCloud’s Series B funding announcement in June 2013, reinforces the Company’s long-term mission to leverage the power of cloud computing to improve the quality and lower the cost of healthcare delivery.

“Physicians are facing pressures to adopt and use EHRs to comply with various healthcare reform efforts and demonstrate Meaningful Use. It’s clear there is a growing number of providers and groups that signed up for their first EHR in haste and are now entering the market again, wiser about what they need in a clinical system. Specifically, they are looking for a more modern, pay-as-you-go, ubiquitously available, more usable, and faster EHR. We have delivered just that solution,” said Albert Santalo, CareCloud Chairman and CEO. “Providers that are either first-time purchasers of an EHR today, or coming off of legacy-based systems, are looking for a cloud-based, fully integrated platform that will keep them up to date with an ever-changing healthcare system, but ultimately position them to operate more efficiently while delivering the best care possible.”

CareCloud Charts, certified as a Complete Meaningful Use EHR by Drummond Group, integrates with the company’s practice management and patient portal solutions to deliver the industry’s most modern clinical, financial and administrative platform for physicians. Charts was recently ranked #1 in the “Best Desktop EHRs” category in report. Key enhancements in this new release include:

The May 2013 , which serves as an annual barometer for the operational wellbeing of U.S. medical groups in the year ahead, surveyed more than 5,000 physicians across the nation and uncovered a downward trend in profitability for the year ahead, which is driving a growing “rip and replace” market for technology. The PPI found that, of the 41% of practices with specific plans aimed at operational improvements in the coming year, 41% plan to implement a new EHR and 25% have plans to replace their existing clinical system.

“We are excited to roll out the next generation release of CareCloud Charts in Vanguard Rheumatology. The EHR is so easy to use, and with capabilities like charting-by-exception, order sets, and configurable templates, documentation is significantly faster allowing us to see more patients throughout the day. This obviously translates to happier patients and more profit,” said Dr. Carlos Sesin. “As we drive toward Meaningful Use attestation later in 2013 and beyond, we look forward to using CareCloud Charts to help us gain these critical government incentives.”

CareCloud Charts has been implemented at several practices and is now generally available. To learn more about CareCloud Charts visit . To view an interactive video demonstration of Cloud Charts, visit .
