electronic health records

WALTHAM, Mass., July 14, 2015 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — Forerun Inc. today announced it has joined the Urgent Care Integrated Network (UCIN) as a Premier Partner to help better serve the Urgent Care healthcare market with UrgiChart – an intuitive electronic health record system enabling physicians to document efficiently while streamlining clinical decision making thus freeing up more time for patient interaction and increasing operational improvement.

UrgiChart’s unique ChartStarters(TM) provide fast and comprehensive electronic documentation with a logical intuitive flow aligned to how a physician actually works. ChartStarters(TM) displaces the old-school electronic chief complaint template, a solution designed and better suited for a world of paper charts. It unleashes the power of computing technology to deliver a new charting experience that allows for fast and complete charting in minimal time.

Forerun Inc. has partnered with UCIN, a leader in management service organizations (MSO), providing the necessary practice management and business support services to help independent urgent care centers excel and succeed in these changing times. UCIN’s service offerings are designed to focus on reducing costs and increasing revenue.

“We developed key relations with Premier Partners in order to offer our clients a suite of products which can increase their productivity and run their operations more efficiently, all at an affordable cost,” said John Shufeldt MD, Founder and Chief Executive Officer. “We’re passionate about what we do and strive to offer our members the very best service. We selected UrgiChart as the best in its class as it has accomplished the EHR trifecta: Efficiency, Patient Safety and Thoroughness.”

Ken Wolfe, Forerun’s CEO said, “We are proud to be selected by UCIN as their vendor of choice in Urgent Care documentation. UCIN’s selection of UrgiChart powered by ChartStarters is a great validation that the pressures faced in Urgent Care require true innovation in clinical software services to help meet their goals of clinical effectiveness and quality charting. Under UCIN direction, UrgiChart has partnered with some of the top practice management systems and can now offer our specialty EHR as a seamless integrated solution.”

Urgent Care Integrated Network (UCIN) uses its buying power to negotiate and contract the lowest possible pricing with vendors for medical supplies, durable medical equipment and services at rates lower than our members can obtain individually. UCIN vendor partners are a select, carefully chosen group of companies whose services will help you maximize efficiency and productivity.
