Aprima Medical Software, a provider of electronic health records (EHR), practice management (PM), and revenue cycle management solutions (RCM) for medical practices, has integrated its Aprima EHR with DocBuddy, a workflow solution powered by voice recognition to help healthcare providers with documentation when using iOS or Android devices.

With DocBuddy, providers can dictate into any part of a patient note and insert macros of common phrases, diagnoses, and other objective findings into patient records, leaving the subjective fields to be filled out as needed with free text voice recognition.

The integration between Aprima and DocBuddy leverages metadata to automatically place clinical data in the appropriate sections of patient notes.

"Aprima has always been dedicated to leveraging new technologies to make it easier for physicians to practice medicine and run their businesses," said Neil Simon, chief operations officer at Aprima, in a statement. "We are pleased to offer this integration with DocBuddy to our customers, which can help extend the efficiency of their Aprima EHR software."

"DocBuddy empowers doctors to spend less time documenting and performing administrative tasks while delivering simplified access to their data on a mobile device," said Andy D'Agostino, CEO of DocBuddy, in a statement. "Our integration with Aprima enables providers to take advantage of the speed, mobility and accuracy that our solution provides. The paperwork and record-keeping process required of providers takes time and energy that could be spent giving care to more patients. DocBuddy helps providers eliminate that problem with its comprehensive, easy to use toolkit and innovative workflow."

"As soon as I began using DocBuddy in conjunction with my Aprima EHR, I was able to reduce my documentation time by more than 45 minutes a day," said Dr.Kavi Sachar of Hand Surgery Associates in Denver. "I am now able to see more patients, which is a tremendous boost to our practice's bottom line. The other physicians in my practice are experiencing the same results."
