Patient Centered Medical Home

Oxbow EMR is uniquely able to help medical practices satisfy the rigorous requirements of Meaningful Use (MU), Patient-Centered Medical Home (PCMH), and submitting data per the Physician Quality Reporting System (PQRS, formerly PQRI) requirements. We specifically aligned the Oxbow EMR's clinical and practice management functionality with Meaningful Use and PCMH requirements from the outset. The result is a system that delivers on the goals of both programs as a natural byproduct of using the system, unlike the contortions and hoop-jumping required by many EMR's/EHR's. This is one more reason why the Oxbow EMR is the first un-EMR.

Patient Centered Medical Home (PCMH) has been developed by the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) as a means of encouraging whole-patient care. PCMH is based on a consolidation of standards of care established by the American College of Physicians, American Academy of Family Physicians, American Academy of Pediatrics, and the American Osteopathic Association. Practices that can demonstrate they meet the stringent quality requiremnts of the PCMH program may qualify for substantial financial incentives. These incentives vary from state to state.

Oxbow EMR's performance centers around its shockingly-simple-to-use but incredibly powerful ability to mine and use the data entered during patient encounters. Qualifying for both Meaningful Use and the PCMH programs requires reporting on numerous clinical and population measures. Oxbow EMR automates much of this process for the private practice, producing data with no added work for you or your staff. In addition, the Oxbow EMR's powerful Easy Query system, allows you to measure and report on almost any aspect of clinical care in seconds. You can do all of this with no special computer experience and without paying a third party consultant.

As just one example, both Meaningful Use and PCMH require that you provide 50% of patients with care summaries, and 10% of patients with custom patient education handouts, and then product detailed reports demonstrating that this has been accomplished. The Oxbow EMR generates a diagnosis-specific handout library, which you can customize if you wish, and documents and measures each time you provide information to a patient. Care summaries are compiled automatically for each patient, and can be provided at the end of any visit. The Oxbow EMR automatically documents and measures each time this is done for easy and automatic reporting, which is what ultimately is needed to qualify for the funding.

"The deciding factor for me, the reason Oxbow stood out from the crowd, was its attention to quality measures and managing population data."

"We trained for 4 hours on Sunday and on Monday we saw 30 patients. Each patient was entered into the EMR system and we were able to leave the clinic on time."

"...the query function allows me to search my patient database to find out who is overdue for preventative care..."

"We increased our billings in the first week using the Oxbow EMR."

"The Oxbow team [has] been very helpful throughout the entire process of implementation."

"The Oxbow EMR allows me to complete the entire encounter at the time the patient is present."

"...the reason Oxbow stood out from the crowd, was its attention to quality measures and managing population data."

"In a small solo practice, efficiency is just as important as a large busy practice...Oxbow meets all my needs and does it incred ibly well!"

"My staff consists of mainly high school graduates with minimal computer training and they were able to use the system from day one."

"I would highly recommend it [the Oxbow EMR] to anyone wanting an efficient, easy to use system, which is extremely fast."

"The OWL component has made communication much simpler."

"I am no longer having to stay late to dictate charts."

"I am no longer having to stay late to dictate charts."

But the Oxbow EMR takes things a step further: Patient-centered, quality care is intrinsic to the Oxbow EMR. Our development philosophy included two key goals: to make documentation of medical care easier for clinicians, and to improve the quality of medical care for patients and physicians. Automated, real-time, gender/age/disease-specific quality reminders prompt users with clinical decision support at every step of the patient care process. And real-time data helps improve the quality of care, not just in end-of-year reports, but at the place where it matters most, at the point of care.

To summarize the whole system, the Oxbow EMR, as the first un-EMR, was desigend to help physicians easily and effictively delivery a higher quality of care. Therefore government requiremnts like Meaningful Use (MU), Patient Centered Medical Home (PCMH), and the Physician Quality Reporting System (PQRS, formerly PQRI) have been simple for Oxbow to achieve, requiring nothing more for Oxbow than adding some simple reports. This deep integration with our core philosophy ensures these functions are easier for you to use, with no extra modules or functions to master.
