Aprima for Physicians

Innovation

Improve your efficiency with Aprima, not just your recordkeeping. Aprima was designed to help doctors gain more control over their time and their practice. We continuously innovate to meet changing needs, compliance regulations and emerging technology for greater efficiency, so you get access to the latest solutions.

Listening to Physicians

Aprima’s technology leadership has come about primarily because we listen to physicians and their staffs. They actively participate in helping us design workflow and tools that meet the needs of medical practices. Through our bi-monthly physician advisory panel meetings. we learn what works, what needs work and what should be on the road map for the future.

Enter Data Your Way

Physicians in the same practice likely follow similar clinical protocols when they treat a condition. Similar. Not same. With template-based EHRs, a practice is forced to choose one physician’s protocol; the other physicians must conform. In contrast, Aprima respects each physician’s unique preferences. The typical learning curve spans 2-3 months. With other EHRs it’s 18-24 months.

Flexible EHR Implementation

Some physicians in a practice are ready to go entirely electronic. Others are comfortable with their existing workflows. Unlike most EHR/PM systems that take an all-or-none approach to product adoption, Aprima recognizes these differences. Each doctor chooses the capabilities he or she needs. And Aprima’s pricing reflects that flexibility.

Chief Complaint / Symptom Driven

Very often, a patient’s chief complaint isn’t the only one. Unlike EHRs that replicate paper-based paradigms, we reimagined what technology could do for physicians. Thus, Aprima lets you chart multiple complaints in the same record. Moreover, Aprima’s categories can be customized by practice, care team or provider.
