FACES Foundation Adopts SOAPware Electronic Health Record To Help Bring High Quality Care To Medically Underserved Patients

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark., Jan. 14, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Through their recent procurement of the SOAPware electronic health record, non-profit medical care organization, FACES Foundation, seeks to provide high-quality care for its medically underserved clients with a new level of coordination.  Electronic healthcare solutions provider, SOAPware Inc., will work closely alongside FACES to deliver a solution which can accommodate the Foundation's needs for individual patient follow-up and collaboration with numerous local community resources.

Dedicated to offering comprehensive care beyond surgery alone for indigent, medically isolated patients with cleft lip and palate deformities, the FACES Foundation has transformed hundreds of lives by performing corrective surgeries in conjunction with their individualized and holistic follow-up services.  The Foundation has long used a unique, internet-based model to connect with their international patients, and looks forward to integrating their current capabilities with those an EHR can provide. 

As FACES Foundation President Dr. Thomas Albert MD, DMD, maintains, "Having a reliable, flexible EHR allows for much better follow up and data collection.  It is a crucial part of trying to provide the same level of care as we do for patients in the US. The generous contribution from SOAPware will help tremendously in our mission."     

With over 20 years of experience in the industry, SOAPware Inc. has an established record of promoting the continuity and efficiency of medical care in practices across the globe.  "SOAPware is privileged to work with the FACES Foundation," says Randall Oates, M.D., Founder and President of SOAPware, Inc. "By empowering medical professionals with innovative technology and services, we believe that we can improve healthcare and the quality of life for patients worldwide."

About the FACES Foundation

FACES Foundation is a non-profit (501c3) that has a mission to provide comprehensive, high quality care for indigent, medically isolated cleft lip/palate patients beyond surgery alone in a locally sustainable model.

FACES (Foundation for the Advancement of Cleft Education and Services), founded in 2001, has performed hundreds of cleft lip and palate surgeries on medically isolated patients. But, we know that surgery alone is not enough to help our patients; they must also learn to speak after their surgery and post-op healing is complete. This is where our unique, technological connectivity comes into play. Using 3G, 4G and WiFi technology we connect with our patients abroad. Our highly trained speech therapists, based in Portland, Oregon, can connect with patients in Peru through internet connections and video conferencing. Wireless connectivity is overcoming medical isolation and international borders – using 3G/4G/WiFi connections, we are able to deliver complex services never before available to difficult to reach populations. The results have been impressive.  For more information about the FACES Foundation, please visit http://www.facesfoundation.org
