Overview

Our client is a US-based primary healthcare organization with over 20 years of experience in direct primary care. Located in Texas, they offer membership-based services without accepting insurance, focusing on monthly or yearly memberships. Seeking to replace their current EHR system with escalating costs, they require a cost-effective solution offering basic functionalities like patient intake forms, charting, and invoice generation. Additionally, they aim to implement a membership management module for creating customized plans with discounts and free services, along with integrations for payment gateways, lab systems, and e-prescription platforms.

Business challenges

    1. Costly EHR System:

The client's existing EHR system has increased fees, impacting their financial sustainability.

    2. Limited Functionality:

The existing EHR lacked essential features such as

-  Customizable patient intake forms

-  Charting templates

-  Invoice generation, hindering efficient clinic operations

  • Membership Management Issues:

    Managing membership plans manually was cumbersome and prone to errors, leading to inefficiencies in plan creation, customization, and tracking.

    3. Payment Processing Complexity:

Without integrated payment gateways, collecting membership fees and processing payments was time-consuming and error-prone.

    4. Integration Bottlenecks:

Lack of integration with lab systems and e-prescription platforms resulted in disjointed workflows, leading to delays in lab test ordering and prescription processing.
