Hello Folks,

We are looking for an EHR systems industry expert to first evaluate our current IT needs and recommend the best overall software strategy to achieve efficient patient care and office management workflows. After several attempts to integrate EHR software packages with limited success, our desire is to select the best software among the many available options that will best meet our specific requirements.

We are a 70 bed facility in Northern California and run residential health education & medically supervised water fasting programs in which participants come for an in-person stay and follow nutritional therapies to improve their health. Patients may stay for a few days or as much as a few months or more. We offer overnight accommodations, food and beverage service, and medical services. We offer both inpatient and outpatient care and our clinicians make rounds to patient rooms twice daily. We also have an affiliated non-profit foundation that undertakes nutritional research activities.

Our key challenges are:

- We cannot use our main EHR (Meditab) to schedule patients in rooms as our scheduling needs are very complex and similar to a hotel facility. As a result, we use a 3rd party solution called "Reservation Master" which has limited integration with our EHR program and we cannot import room reservations into Meditab.

- Generating a bill is very time consuming and requires 3 pieces of software (Reservation Master, Excel and Meditab)

- We rely heavily on a patient portal to gather medical data before patient visits but the Meditab patient portal is not user-friendly and requires considerable manual work to import data and make corrections.

- We are dissatisfied with the EHR workflows and user friendliness of Meditab in general.

- Medical charting was so awkward in Meditab that we created our own medical record template using Atlassian Confluence and it works well but does not integrate with Meditab.

- Providers have 2 calendars that are not synchronized which creates confusion.

- Patients are not able to self-schedule in-house appointments.

Our goal is to address these challenges with the fewest number of software solutions possible and we are willing to look at all possibilities to do so including switching to a different EHR program and implementing other software solutions.

Thank you,
