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 potential improvement.
“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 intuitively integrates voice recognition to the entire electronic charting process. ChartLogic was the first vendor to achieve ONC certification as a complete ambulatory EHR in support of the government’s meaningful use incentives program. The company is based in Salt Lake City, Utah, and is privately held. For additional information, visit www.chartlogic.com, or call 888-337-4441.
Kareo offers a cloud-based, integrated suite of products and services purpose-built to help small practice physicians get paid faster, run their business smarter, and provide better care. Headquartered in Irvine, California, the Kareo mission is to help providers spend their time focused on patients, not paperwork. The company currently serves more than 20,000 providers nationwide and has received extensive industry recognition, including the Deloitte Technology Fast 500, Inc. 500/5000, Forbes Top 100 Most Promising Companies, and Black Book #1 Integrated EHR, Practice Management and Billing Vendor.

Web Real-Time Communication APIs have quickly revolutionized what browsers are capable of. In addition to video and audio streams, we can now bi-directionally send arbitrary data over WebRTC's PeerConnection Data Channels. With the advent of Progressive Web Apps and new hardware APIs such as WebBluetooh and WebUSB, we can finally enable users to stitch together the Internet of Things directly from their browsers while communicating privately and securely in a decentralized way.
