Dr. Jonas Simpson, Sundial Medical Specialty Clinic, Tempe AZ
I decided to become a doctor for two simple reasons, I wanted to help people and I have an entrepreneurial bent. By opening my own practice with some of my colleagues, I was able to diagnose and treat patients in a setting I created, and I was quite successful in doing so…or so I thought.
Then our Extormity sales consultant convinced my partners and me that our workflow wasn’t really working for us. She showed us, over the course of several dinners, that we were doing things simply because it was the way we had always done them, and because they fit our individual preferences and approaches to practicing medicine.
When she pointed out that other successful practices were spending small fortunes on IT infrastructure and personnel and following rigid practice guidelines mandated by a proprietary software platform, we began to feel inadequate and grew concerned that we were not investing enough in consultants, hardware, software and expensive integration packages.
Thanks to Extormity, we have now spent a significant sum on a healthcare IT system that forced us to unlearn our preferences in favor of an approach that makes us treat each patient the same way, regardless of our medical training and instincts. We have also learned new skills, and some of us have become as adept at data entry as we have at diagnosis and treatment.
Sure, there were less expensive and more flexible approaches to adopting an electronic health record, but none of those would have created the extreme upheaval necessary to force us out of our comfort zones.
Dr. Susan Santos, Mid-City ENT, Kansas City, MO
For years, we operated our practice in a fiscally conservative manner. If fact, we had never in our 8 year history taken out a bank loan. Extormity changed all that. They showed us that money is readily available for practices willing to go into debt to adopt an EMR.
We now have a long-term leasing arrangement with the Extormity Financial Services division for our server farm, and we also have a formal relationship with a local bank that includes a comprehensive loan package complete with financial covenants and personal guarantees.
Looking back, we were naive when it came to the business side of our practice. Now that we have sizeable debt, it feels more like a real business.
Not only that, we get to carry around tablet PC’s with a stylus. Talk about 21st century medicine! We are spending more time with our patients, as documenting encounters takes at least 10 more minutes for each exam.
Extormity changed everything, truly revolutionizing our practice.
