IPS Technology Services Wins a Consulting Engagement to Implement an EHR package for a Physician’s Office in Metro Detroit

TROY, Mich., November 11, 2014 –IPS Technology Services recently won a project with a local physician’s office to help implement a comprehensive Electronic Health Records (EHR) system and to provide the necessary training and consulting to the staff to ensure a successful transition.

As with most physicians whose practice has spanned a few decades, the client is in need of a complete transition from paper-based patient records to an EHR system. IPS Technology Services will manage the installation of an electronic health records software program in the client’s office, as well as convert all of the paper files into digital format. By switching to an EHR format, the client will be able to better track patient records, reduce paper waste, limit the space needed to house physical records, and will be able to better protect patients’ confidentiality.

In addition to the establishment of an EHR system, IPS Technology Services will also set up practice management software to assist the client in scheduling appointments, maintaining a list of insurance companies, performing billing tasks and generating required reports. IPS Technology Services will also address the client’s Revenue Cycle Management, to ensure that the office is receiving payments for all services rendered in a timely manner.

Finally, IPS Technology Services will provide consulting to the client for both Meaningful Use and Accountable Care Organization (ACO). Meaningful Use will allow the office to utilize EHR improve patient care coordination, to reduce health disparities, and to engage patients and their families. ACO or Accountable Care Organization aims to provide well-coordinated, patient-centered healthcare with the goal of achieving improved health, improved patient experiences and lower costs.

IPS Technology Services Wins Contract to Provide Website and Digital Marketing Upgrade, Maintenance and Hosting Service for a Global Professional Organization

TROY – August 15, 2013 –IPS Technology Services recently won a contract to provide website and digital marketing upgrade, maintenance and hosting services for the Michigan chapter of a global professional organization. The client has been finding it difficult to keep up with its communications with members through email blasts, website upgrades, and maintenance activities as it was managed by its volunteer members.

They realized that email blasts were not going out as planned and that the website and email lists were not being updated in a timely manner.

As the manager of this client’s email communications and website maintenance, IPS Technology Services will be responsible for sending out organization-wide emails on behalf of the client, making regular changes to the organization’s website and performing periodic updates to the client’s membership email lists. By hiring IPS Technology Services to perform these services, the client will be able to maintain continuity of brand image and email communications in the future—regardless of the status of the communications chair volunteer position.

The client is part of a not-for-profit global professional organization with over 50,000 individual members, 600 member corporations and 250 affiliate non-profit organizations. Their mission to utilize information technology in healthcare has served healthcare providers, governmental and non-profit organizations and patients for over 50 years.
