33rd Annual No-nonsense Seminar Hosted by the North Central Academy of Podiatric Medicine – Independence, OH, March 9-11

Thu, 08 Mar 2018

The 33rd Annual No-nonsense Seminar is organized by the North Central Academy of Podiatric Medicine (NCAPM), and will be held from March 9-11, at the Holiday Inn in Independence, Ohio. The mission of the NCAPM is to enhance professional and educational development of the podiatry profession through educational programs, professional development and scholarships for podiatry students. The 2018 No-nonsense seminar is designed to include hands-on workshops, and scientific lectures presented by the top names in the podiatric field. With up to 25 category one CME credits approved, 15 speakers, 4 workshops, and over 100 different exhibitors, this is a must-attend for podiatry professionals.

New technology and advances in Podiatric Medicine

From lectures on advances in CT/Tendon Evaluation with MRI and Ultrasound by Albert Armstrong, DPM, MSc, BSRS, CWS, who is nationally known for work in radiology and imaging foot and ankle, to interactive workshops on How to Attract New Patients from the Web, the Seminar will cover the most relevant topics for today’s podiatry professionals. With technology being at the forefront of developments, podiatry physicians will learn about tools they can use to stay ahead, for example by using EMR software to run more efficient operations.

Using EMR Software to Improve Business for Your Podiatry Practice

EMR software can be of great benefit to podiatry professionals, containing a wealth of information at the click of a button. With podiatry-specific exam and procedure templates, letters and form features, pre-loaded reports and ability to create custom reports, and image libraries with hundreds of foot-related diagrams, software can speed up operations and make life easier for physicians.

Podiatry professionals will have multiple opportunities to meet with podiatry EMR vendors and other companies showcasing their podiatry-related products at the seminar. 1st Providers Choice is excited to be exhibiting our EMR software for podiatrists, which provides the ability for physicians to improve productivity, and provide high quality care. For example, EMR software from 1st Providers Choice includes an advanced scheduling module, EHR-integrated billing, and an intuitive Meaningful Use dashboard. This dashboard allows podiatrists to ensure objectives are met by tracking their progress meeting specific MU objectives, viewing percentages of compliance and monitoring problem areas daily.

The Importance of Billing Software for a Podiatry Practice

Receiving payments is easily one of the biggest challenges in any practice.  Internal staff can often get bogged down with paperwork and payment reimbursement requests, which can lead them to neglect other important work.  To avoid this issue many podiatry practices, large and small, have adopted the use of medical billing software.

Utilizing podiatry billing software can help your billing department get the correct insurance information, post charges faster, simplify reimbursement, and increase overall collections for your practice.  Billing software for your podiatry practice not only streamlines your collections process, but it also saves your office staff precious time so that they can focus on serving your patients better.

Improving the Podiatry Patient Experience    

As well as helping physicians improve their operations, podiatry EMR software can help improve the patient experience. With speciality specific patient portals becoming an important resource for patients and clinicians, our EMR software allows patients to become more involved in their own care. The podiatry patient portal allows patients to have access to shared healthcare and personal records kept by your practice, which not only allows them to become more informed about their conditions, but also gives them comprehensive information which can help them feel more involved. Podiatry patient portal tools are available to help you to adapt to your own patient requirements, allowing them to access a range of different data points and results, viewing physician notes and health summaries.

1st Providers Choice offers free, no-obligation demonstrations of EMR software for podiatry professionals. Schedule your demonstration today by calling 480-782-1116 or by connecting with us via our website.
