1st Providers Choice is an electronic health record and practice management solution that supports multiple medical specialties but is a great fit for podiatry practices and pain management clinics. The software can be installed on-premise or accessed over the web as a hosted solution. 1st Providers Choice manages the entire patient life cycle, from appointment scheduling and diagnosis to claims scrubbing and patient billing.
The AC Group has consistently ranked 1st Providers Choice highly for its functionality, ease of use and user satisfaction rates. The system is ONC-ATCB and CCHIT certified and the company guarantees stimulus payments. 1st Providers Choice also delivers seamless data conversion from almost any existing EMR or practice management system, and with their Meaning Use Reporting Dashboard, you get a simple, high-level view of what your practice needs to do to meet stimulus payment requirements.
We really like the appointment scheduling features, which include automated phone, email and text appointment reminders. Some other unique capabilities include the automated patient intake forms, digital signatures, patient check-in kiosks and online insurance verification portal. Finally, the built-in CPT coding advisor and detailed claim scrubbing capabilities help ensure the highest revenue per encounter.
We would recommend 1st Provider’s Choice to practices of all sizes, especially those within the podiatry and pain management specialties.
