RemedyMD Launches Industry’s First Dietitian-Focused Electronic Health Record
RemedyMDÃ®, a leading provider of specialty-specific electronic health record software, today announced they will be unveiling DietitianEHR™ for Registered Dietitians and Nutritionists at the Food & Nutrition Conference & Expo. This powerful offering delivers a comprehensive, web-based Electronic Health Record (EHR) solution which meets the specific needs of registered dietitians and nutritionists.
RemedyMD's EHR platform enables dietitians and their staff to document client visits, record health outcomes, receive clinical decision support, and facilitate better client involvement in their own healthcare. DietitianEHR provides full documentation and management of nutrition and behavioral plans including the ability for dietitians to create their own commonly prescribed regimens in one click, including energy intake, diet type, exercise plan, behavior modifications, supplements, and counseling plans.Dietitians using the program can save time and see more patients by streamlining the documentation of follow-up visits, current behavior, intake, current regimen, exercise duration, and plan adherence. DietitianEHR also provides intuitive reporting tools that track progress based on specific dietary and behavioral modification plans, enabling better decisions and improved outcomes.
As with all RemedyMD solutions, DietitianEHR includes myHealthManager™, a self-management solution for dietitian clients. myHealthManager is a comprehensive client health and wellness portal that powers registration, nutrition, weigh-ins, exercise journaling and goal-setting. The web-based program also gives patients access to educational resources and an active community forum, which will make them more likely to stay on track with their dietitian-prescribed programs and maintain long-term contact with the practice. Dietitians can utilize myHealthManager to monitor progress, exchange, secure messages and post reminders.
"Registered dietitians and nutritionists have been neglected in the electronic health record market for too long," said Emily Bonham, Senior Director, Product Management for RemedyMD. "For example, they have had to rely upon cumbersome paper documentation that does not allow for outcomes reporting. Yet generic electronic health record systems don't fit the registered dietitian's specific documentation and client-management needs, either. RemedyMD's DietitianEHR caters solely to the dietitian's workflow and requirements, enabling dietitians to better manage their practice, improve outcomes, increase referrals, and best meet their client's needs."
RemedyMD will demonstrate the new DietitianEHR at the Food and Nutrition Conference and Expo (FNCE) at the Pennsylvania Convention Center in Philadelphia at booth #1733 September 30 to October 2, 2007. For more information, please visit www.DietitianEHR.com.
