Chapel Hill, NC – December 13, 2016 – The Center for Rheumatology, LLP in Albany, New York has partnered with
TSI Healthcare, a national leader in the sales and support of customized NextGen® Practice Management and Electronic Health Record solutions. TSI Healthcare will be the sole provider and support center for The Center for Rheumatology’s Practice Management (PM) software, rheumatology specific Electronic Health Record (EHR) software, and Cloud ASP Hosting services.
With more than 28 years in practice, The Center for Rheumatology is the second largest rheumatology practice in the country. As the practice’s patient and provider network grew, it realized its current EHR system could not adequately meet basic workflow, federal policy, and service demands. In need of a system that would help the practice achieve its goals, The Center for Rheumatology began searching for a comprehensive vendor that would propel it to the next level of patient care.
TSI Healthcare’s rheumatology specific EHR content, Stevie Award winning customer service, and 1-on-1 guided federal policy assistance were the perfect fit. The Center for Rheumatology will incorporate TSI Healthcare’s 500+ rheumatology specific enhancements into their practice workflow. These enhancements include a rheumatology specific ScoreCard™, outcomes tracking comparing disease activity scores against daily treatments, and a joint exam featuring color-coded homunculus diagrams. As The Center for Rheumatology prepares for MACRA in 2017, it will rely on TSI Healthcare’s Government Affairs team to help it achieve new levels of success through services such as Quality Program Services, set to launch in January 2017.
“We were seeking new ways to survive the ever-evolving healthcare landscape and continue growing our practice. We needed an integrated PM and EHR system and support team that provided both rheumatology specific content and federal policy guidance,” said Marc Miranda, The Center for Rheumatology’s business manager. “We are confident that TSI Healthcare will exceed our EHR needs; in fact, during our search process TSI Healthcare was the only company to receive 100% positive feedback from their clients.”
“With nearly 20 years in healthcare IT, we remain dedicated to partnering with rheumatologists across the nation to further their goal of remaining independent,” says David M. Dickson Jr., TSI Healthcare’s founder, president, and CEO. “This partnership reinforces our continued commitment to helping rheumatology practices like The Center for Rheumatology expand their service offerings by providing them with the best tools and the best service in the industry.”
