Paramus, NJ – June 8, 2010 – After an extensive search for an electronic health records system, Dr. Ashish Shah of Winter Haven, FL selected the MedicsDocAssistant EHR from Advanced Data Systems as being the most cost-effective, easy-to-use system they have seen.
Dr. Shah’s practice is located in the Winter Haven Medical Complex, where a number of his colleagues had selected a variety of other EHRs. Dr. Shah said, “I reviewed many of those systems as well and just did not feel comfortable with any of them, but did have a comfort level with MedicsDocAssistant.”
“Once the approval was given to ADS, we were promptly scheduled for implementation and training. We were using the MedicsDocAssistant system live almost immediately,” said Dr. Shah.
Hemali Shah, the Practice Administrator, said, “Admittedly, I am not computer savvy but MedicsDocAssistant is so easy to use and intuitive that we were all able to take to it right away. Paperwork is eliminated and tasks that used to take hours now take minutes.”
Dr. Shah emphasized, “Quick implementation and use was of key importance to me. I left a 50 physician practice and wanted to be on an EHR and be paperless from the beginning, not only for the practice but more importantly, for our patients. I want my patients to know that we use the MedicsDocAssistant EHR, and how critical that is to their care. It also demonstrates our practice’s commitment to utilizing leading edge technology in providing that care; that their information is available to me when needed on weekends, after hours and when in the hospital.”
Dr. Shah stated, “Our decision to go with ADS also was in no small part due to their longevity in the industry. The fact that their EHR happens to be excellent as well made for a combination of company and product we could not overlook. ADS impressed me as a company that really cares about its clients, and the system’s flexibility allows me to use it the way I want.”
The practice is now poised to take full advantage of the financial incentives offered through the Stimulus Act. “The very affordable cost of MedicsDocAssistant will make obtaining Stimulus Act funds that much more valuable,” said Dr. Shah.
David Barzillai, President of ADS said, “We greatly appreciate Dr. Shah’s support of both the MedicsDocAssistant EHR and ADS, and we look forward to working with the practice as their automation solutions partner.”
