Sleep Medicine Practices Through New Partnership
TSI Healthcare, a national leader in the sales and support of customized NextGen® Practice Management and Electronic Health Record solutions has partnered with Sleep + Lung MD. TSI Healthcare will be the small practice’s sole provider and support center for Pulmonary & Sleep Medicine specific Electronic Health Record (EHR) software, Cloud ASP Hosting services, and federal policy assistance.
When the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act of 2015 (MACRA), was announced in October 2016, Dr. Chung, the sole provider of the practice, had concerns about the ability of his small, paper-based practice to flourish amidst the new pay-for-performance government regulations. With many vendors focused on appealing to large practices, Sleep + Lung MD realized its need for a vendor that would ensure it met new federal policy requirements and flourished as a small, independent practice. In addition to a focus on small practices, the Sleep + Lung MD wanted a vendor that could provide it with platinum-level support alongside a comprehensive EHR system.
TSI Healthcare’s Pulmonary and Sleep Medicine specific EHR content, Stevie Award winning customer service, and 1-on-1 guided federal policy assistance were the perfect fit for the practice. Though most vendors in the industry have brushed aside the small, independent practice, TSI healthcare remains committed to the Pulmonary and Sleep Medicine niche. While serving practices as large as 150 providers, TSI Healthcare also delivers the same platinum-level support to single provider and small practices.
Sleep + Lung MD will now incorporate TSI Healthcare’s 300+ Pulmonary and Sleep medicine specific enhancements into their practice workflow. These enhancements include a pulmonary specific ScoreCard™, templates for bronchoscopy and spirometry procedures, and documentation templates for conditions including asthma, sarcoidosis, and COPD. As the practice participates in MACRA, 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, launched earlier this year.
“Being a single physician practice with multiple locations can be challenging. TSI Healthcare truly understands the unique needs of independent Pulmonary & Sleep Medicine physicians. Prior to joining the TSI Healthcare family, we were trying to navigate federal policy on our own while continuing to provide our patients with quality care,” said Dr. Chung. “Now, with TSI Healthcare, I am confident that our Pulmonary and Sleep Medicine EHR needs will be met and we will be very successful with MACRA.”
“Since 1997, we have remained committed to providing Pulmonary & Sleep Medicine physicians, like Dr. Chung, with innovative specialty content and an unrivaled customer service experience,” says David M. Dickson Jr., TSI Healthcare’s President and CEO. “As we celebrate our 20th year in the health IT industry, we remain committed to providing the best tools and the best services to Pulmonary & Sleep Medicine practices of all sizes to ensure they reach their goals and remain independent.”
