Yet, with integrated patient charting, prescription and refill management,
document management, encounter note generation, patient and resource
scheduling, intra-office messaging and powerful customization features, it
is equally suitable for advanced users of medical electronic records
Easy to use,
all charts have a patient based layout. There is no need to back out to
various sections of the EMR software to gain information. Demographics,
historical data, scanned documents, encounters, treatment plans,
medications and charges are all within the patient's file. This
sophisticated design allows users to view their entire workflow and manage
clinical and administrative tasks from any point within the program. And
its charts look and feel very close to real paper charts to which
physicians are accustomed, making it even more simple and one of the
fastest EMR systems around. Whether you are a family physician or an
internist, or a consultant such as neurologist, cardiologist, psychiatrist
or pulmonary specialist, you will find UniCharts electronic medical record
system apt at documenting complex patient visits accurately and in less
Easy to install,
it takes less than 5 minutes to complete the entire process. A wizard
guides through simple steps to complete the installation of EMR software.
No changes are made to your computer files or registry in any way. Many
electronic medical record systems require database to be installed and
managed separately. In contrast, RKM Charts EMR solution is an integrated
software package and installed as a single unit. It has been designed from
the outset to be a Plug and Play electronic medical records software. Even
a non-technical person can get the EMR system up-and-running in a short
Easy to customize,
the built-in customization tool in the EMR program provides amazing
customization capabilities. You can alter almost any part of the patient
encounter form to meet the workflow requirements of your specialty. You can
create your own dropdown menus, list menus and toggle buttons. You can even
add, remove or relocate entire sections of the encounter form with just a
few clicks. RKMCharts electronic medical records software has been
successfully deployed in diverse medical specialties such as Family
Medicine, Internal Medicine, Pediatrics, Neurology, Psychiatry,
Pulmonology, Cardiology, Oncology and Physical Medicine &
Rehabilitation. We also have very successful EMR implementations in Pain
Management clinics, Sleep Disorders clinics and Ambulatory Surgical Centers
Easy to maintain,
installation of the EMR program is required on just one computer within the
practice. Authorized users log onto the EMR from any access point over the
network simply using their Internet Explorer browsers. Depending on the
network configuration and security policy, patient medical records can be
accessed from both local intranets and the Internet with equal ease,
utilizing the same rich user interface in either case. Built-in Live Update
feature makes software updation a breeze. Database backups can be made with
just a few clicks. You can even backup the entire EMR program on a USB
flash drive, plug that drive onto another computer or network and start
using it immediately.
Easy to rely on,
RKMCharts EMR fully complies with HIPAA regulations to protect electronic
patient information. Furthermore, it utilizes the best combination of
current day software technologies to provide you with a dependable and
long-term EMR solution. Database is a backbone of electronic medical record
solutions. Unlike most low-priced EMR systems, our software does not rely
on a desktop database to store your valuable data. The limitations of a
desktop database become apparent once the patient population becomes large,
including decreased response time and frequent crashes. Despite its low
price, RKMCharts EMR software is bundled with a reliable and top-rated high
performance database that is used by millions of mission critical
applications worldwide, including many high-priced EMR systems.
Easy on the budget,
RKMCharts EMR system is a one time investment. All RKMCharts licenses are
for lifetime and never expire, and include lifetime licenses for embedded
database and other components. And besides being a one-time expenditure,
the cost is amazingly low per user. As any emr comparison matrix would
demonstrate, it is one of the most affordable EMR software that provides
the best ROI, if any ROI justification is required at this cost bracket at
all. Every license includes one-year of free updates and email support.
Further support is entirely optional and based on a flat yearly amount
which is also below the industry average of 20 percent of the base EMR
price. There are no hidden costs or charges whatsoever. It is truly a low
cost system with a high-end functionality.
Do I need an
Internet connection to use this EMR system?
Not at all. RKMCharts is not a web-based ASP solution. Instead, it is a
browser-based EMR system that physicians download and install on a computer
within their practices just like any regular program or application. Unlike
ASP solutions, users have full ownership and control of the data as it
resides within the database embedded in the program. To use it, physicians
or staff members just have to open an Internet Explorer browser window from
a terminal/computer over the LAN, point it to the login page, provide
credentials and log in. If there is no network or for some reason a
physician wants to use it alone, the EMR may be installed on a desktop,
laptop or Tablet PC of the doctor and used through a browser window from
that very same machine. In either case, there is absolutely no need for web
or an Internet connection to use the program or access patient charts and
Then why this EMR
solution designed to run on a browser?
A browser-based solution has many advantages over a traditional
thick-client system. At the foremost, it needs to be installed on just one
computer on the local network. This single-installation architecture
significantly reduces deployment and maintenance hassles. It is inherently
easier to secure, maintain, and monitor a browser-based program. It is also
much easier to apply periodic updates to the software as only one node, the
EMR server, needs to be updated. And last but not the least, a
browser-based electronic medical records system is Internet enabled by
default and can be used to serve as a personal ASP. If the practice/clinic
have a permanent IP address (you get it when you subscribe to a permanent
internet connection, such as DSL) and the local network is configured for
outside communications, users can access medical records in much the same
way from a remote location such as hospital, nursing home or a second
office that also has Internet connectivity. Very few EMR solutions offer
this kind of flexibility and capability.
Can this EMR
software be customized for my specialty?
No doubt about it. The encounter form of RKMCharts is a flexible and
versatile template designed to accommodate almost any specialty in
medicine. It follows CMS guidelines for evaluation and management services
to document history and physical examination of patients. Although these
guidelines are directed towards Medicare and Medicaid programs, they have
become a standard for patient management and documentation, regardless of
the payer. While each and every part of the encounter form can be
customized in any desired way, it is essentially the physical examination
section that requires tweaking according to the criteria defined by CMS for
specialty-specific examinations. A new installation of RKMCharts EMR system
defaults to general multi-system examination as performed by primary care
physicians. Ophthalmologists, cardiologists, neurologists, urologists or
any specialist for that matter who conduct single system organ examination
can make adjustments appropriate to their specialty in no time using our
built-in customization tool. And not only body systems and bullet elements
of physical examination can be customized but the entire encounter form can
be transformed to reflect areas of emphasis for that specialty.
RKMCharts EMR is an industry-compliant electronic medical record system,
fully scalable to multi-specialty, multi-location situations.
It is designed to handle multiple providers each having
unique chart layouts yet allow sharing of common data such as patient
demographic and insurance information. This EMR system allows physicians to
customize charts and other sections to their personal preferences and
requirements of their practice and specialty. It is currently being used in
many different medical specialties including, but not limited to, Primary
Care, Neurology, Psychiatry, Cardiology, Pulmonology, Pain Management and
Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation. Charts, refills, phone notes and
messages can be created and shuttled back and forth between the users. Any
number of scanned documents and images can be filed and attached to the
charts. Exports patient data in pure XML and also in PDF format for batch
printing. Supports multiple levels of security to control access to the EMR
