  QuicDoc® and Office Therapy® E-Newsletter

From the desk of James B. Miller, Director of Compliance and Quality Control

Outcome Measure, Patient Chart, Client ChartThe first week in August is national ‘Simplify Your Life Week.’ Sounds good, doesn’t it? It is a good time to step back and take stock of your life. Sometimes just clearing away household or office clutter can make a difference. On a more personal note, simplifying your life allows you to take the pressure off of yourself. You can do this by saying “No” more often to those time and resource draining tasks that have no lasting benefit. You can also relieve some pressure by delegating more; don’t take on the responsibility for “everything." But most importantly, simplify by finding time to relax. So turn off the news, take long walks, commune with nature, slow down, and you may even find yourself laughing more.

scheduler, complete chart, case notesAugust is National Picnic Month. Whether at the beach, at a park, in the mountains, or in your own backyard, what better way to slow down and to savor the season than by having a picnic. Essentials include food and drink, a basket, a blanket, and people with whom you like to socialize. Concentrate on light fare, fruit and vegetables that nourish, yet leave you feeling refreshed and empowered.

While relaxing and enjoying some delicious summer treats, take a few moments to review our newsletter for this month. Stay up to date on the timeline for the adoption of ICD-10, find out how using our QuicDoc Enterprise product can help you “Go Green," and get a sneak peek at the future of QuicDoc and Office Therapy Professional.

  QuicDoc Enterprise – Go Green

case management, clinical documentation, outcome measures, progress notesIt’s no secret that Electronic Medical Records systems such as QuicDoc can significantly reduce the need for paper, as well as the need to store paper records.

Transitioning from paper to electronic records not only helps the environment, it provides you with easily searchable files that can be quickly accessed throughout your agency or practice. The option to electronically sign your charts using Topaz Signature Tablets can be quickly set up in QuicDoc Enterprise by the System Administrator.

  On the Horizon...Software in the Cloud

The logical progression for QuicDoc and Office Therapy Professional after upgrading the backend database to SQL is to now offer the product suite as Software as a Service (SaaS) in the Cloud.

EHR, Practice Management, e billingWe have received numerous requests for a way to access our software from anywhere, to be able to use it on a MAC, IPad, or IPhone without 3rd party software, and to be able to budget the costs, upgrades, support, and backup and disaster recovery monthly the way you pay the cost for any utility. Hosting our software in the cloud answers all of these requests and more.

We hope to have this service complete and operational by the end of the fourth quarter. Stay tuned!
