NEW YORK, NY–(Marketwire – April 7, 2008) – SynaMed, LLC, a leader in award-winning, healthcare technology, is proud to offer our free electronic medical record (EMR) and practice management system technology to physicians across the United States.

The response so far has been tremendous as physicians rush to enroll in SynaMed’s “Free EMR / PMS for Life,” which includes Electronic Medical Records, Electronic Prescribing, Lab Connectivity, DICOM/PACS, Patient Portal, Inventory Management, Scheduling, and Practice Management System, and more all at no cost for the life of the practice, according to Holly Demuro, SynaMed’s director of operations. 

So, how to provide these valuable services at no cost to practices?

“Through the use of advertising,” Demuro said. “In return for accepting ads on the site, practices can take advantage of all the benefits SynaMed has to offer.”

Those benefits include: greater efficiency, decreased administrative costs, and reduced risk of malpractice. “SynaMed makes medical record keeping simple, reimbursement attainable and keeps paperwork to a minimum, leaving doctors free to be doctors.” Demuro said.

Physicians who take advantage of SynaMed’s free offer will receive information about patients’ medication histories, potential drug or allergy interactions and receive real-time FDA alerts. Additionally, SynaMed has established links with 55 labs — including Quest and LabCorp — so that requisitions can be delivered and results are automatically retrieved, and triaged.

Patient Portal allows patients to manage their account on-line, update demographics, pay bills and email the doctor’s office securely. This saves time in the waiting room, adding convenience for both sides of the front desk.

SynaMed, LLC has been known for its Web browser-based ASP model since its inception in 1999. SynaMed’s EMR has been awarded top honors in four categories at the TEPR Awards (www.tepr.com), they have been top rated in Customer Satisfaction by KLAS and given first place for Best EMR and Best Practice Management Solution by TETHIC (www.tethic.com). SynaMed’s EMR has also been top-ranked by the AC Group (www.acgroup.org), and was designated by the Certification Commission for Healthcare Information Technology (CCHIT) as a nationally certified vender of electronic health record products in April of 2006.
