Ability Clinical Technologies Adds TotalMD Standard Program for Medical Practices & Billing Services
|April 9, 2012||Filled under releases, United States||
For less than $500, medical practices and billing services can upgrade their software to meet ANSI 5010 and HIPAA compliancy standards. Ability Clinical Technologies now offers TotalMD Standard, which also converts Medisoft and Lytec data.
Effective immediately, Ability Clinical Technologies, an Orlando, Florida-based corporation will offer TotalMD’s HIPAA-compliant, STANDARD software program for Practice Management and Medical Billing.
“Many practices and services we support, do not require the extra features of the TotalMD Advanced product that we carry”, says Ability’s CEO Scott Hoehn. He continues by saying “By offering the Standard version, we offer our clients an affordable way to protect their patients data from cloud-based alternatives while complying with new government standards. Although the Standard program has features found in programs costing thousands of dollars, the additional features of the Advanced program can always be added as a practice or billing service grows. For clients currently using Medisoft or Lytec, the TotalMD program has a built-in conversion program for their data.”
Protecting patient identity should be the concern of every medical practice and billing service. Recent data-breach reports should send a clear message that cloud-based systems are NOT the way to go for data this sensitive. Doctors are ultimately liable to their patients for decisions made regarding where their data is placed. In addition, online companies can change ownership at any time, which could place patient data in hands of owners with questionable motives and/or regulations. The Standard version of TotalMD solves this problem without requiring any additional or annual fees.
TotalMD Standard software sells for $499, with network versions beginning at $1199. Call Ability Clinical Technologies today at 866-287-8953 or visit their website at www.abilityclinical.com for a free demo.
