ChartLogic Advances its Electronic Health Record Suite with Cutting-Edge Revenue Cycle Management from Kareo
|By Business Wire

ChartLogic, a leader in electronic health record solutions for specialty
and primary care physician practices, today announced a partnership with
billing solutions powerhouse, Kareo, that will allow the company to
offer its clients best-of-breed revenue cycle management.
ChartLogic is known for harnessing the power of intelligent voice
commands to expedite and simplify the electronic charting process.
Combined with a single-screen layout, physicians are able to complete an
exam or encounter note in less than 90 seconds. The company is also
recognized for having superior content, functionality and workflows
tailored to surgical and other complex areas of medicine, such as
orthopaedics, otolaryngology, ophthalmology, pain medicine, neurology,
cardiology, urology and gastroenterology.
“Kareo and ChartLogic share a common guiding principle,” says Zubin
Emsley, President and CEO of ChartLogic. “Both companies believe the
future of private practice physicians is reliant on their ability to
maintain strong financial health.”
Emsley explains that many private practice physicians, in spite of
wanting to remain independent and unencumbered, believe being purchased
by a hospital or health system may be their only viable option. “They've
watched their revenues decline year after year, in spite of seeing as
many, if not more, patients,” says Emsley.
The efficiencies of electronic charting over paper charting have proven
considerable for ChartLogic customers, most of which have experienced as
much as a 60% reduction in charting-related overhead after only one
year. However, the need to optimize reimbursements, collections and cash
flow remains significant. No matter the payer mix, case volume or
geography, statistics show that errors, denials and disputes
consistently result in lost revenue of 10% to 30%.
“With a revenue cycle management program from Kareo, private practice
physicians can stop wondering whether their billing staff are doing
everything they can and should, and if it is correct,” Emsley asserts.
Mutual customers will employ ChartLogic EMR to support clinical
operations and Kareo revenue cycle management to support practice
operations. Emsley explains that Kareo’s team will take care of the
entire claims continuum; they will provide customers complete and
detailed financial data as well as graphical dashboards showing key
metrics. Kareo will also coach practice administrators on areas of
“It's no secret a large percentage of private practice physicians are
making less money now than in previous years, and they fear their
survival,” says Dan Rodrigues, CEO and founder of Kareo. “The
combination of ChartLogic EMR and Kareo revenue cycle management is a
powerful way to reverse this trend, allowing private practice physicians
to not only endure, but to thrive.”
Forming the partnership is a very important and strategic move for
ChartLogic and Kareo alike, according to Emsley and Rodrigues. The two
companies have worked closely to integrate their respective technology
platforms, both of which are cloud-hosted, and to assimilate their
implementation, training and support resources.
“Practices that purchase the combination of ChartLogic EMR and Kareo
revenue cycle management will experience a very cohesive and unified
marriage of technology and personnel,” according to Chris Langehaug,
Senior Vice President Operations of ChartLogic. “We see this as the
single most important element in shepherding the success and
satisfaction of our mutual customers.”
ChartLogic has been developing and delivering healthcare technology
solutions since 1994. The company offers a full ambulatory EHR suite,
including electronic medical record, practice management, revenue cycle
management, e-prescribing, patient portal and more. ChartLogic is known
for its proprietary command-and-control methodology that seamlessly and

A critical component of any IoT project is the back-end systems that capture data from remote IoT devices and structure it in a way to answer useful questions. Traditional data warehouse and analytical systems are mature technologies that can be used to handle large data sets, but they are not well suited to many IoT-scale products and the need for real-time insights.
At Fuze, we have developed a backend platform as part of our mobility-oriented cloud service that uses Big Data-based approache...

As the rapid adoption of containers continues, companies are finding that they lack the operational tools to understand the behavior of applications deployed in these containers, and how to identify issues in their application infrastructure.
For example, how are multiple containers within an application impacting each other’s performance? If an application’s service is degraded, which container is to blame? In the case of an application outage, what was the root cause of the outage?

In the world of DevOps there are ‘known good practices’ – aka ‘patterns’ – and ‘known bad practices’ – aka ‘anti-patterns.' Many of these patterns and anti-patterns have been developed from real world experience, especially by the early adopters of DevOps theory; but many are more feasible in theory than in practice, especially for more recent entrants to the DevOps scene.
In this power panel at @DevOpsSummit at 18th Cloud Expo, moderated by DevOps Conference Chair Andi Mann, panelists will dis...

See storage differently! Storage performance problems have only gotten worse and harder to solve as applications have become largely virtualized and moved to a cloud-based infrastructure. Storage performance in a virtualized environment is not just about IOPS, it is about how well that potential performance is guaranteed to individual VMs for these apps as the number of VMs keep going up real time.
