Aprima 2011 is a technologically advanced system for electronic health records (EHR) and practice management. The product is built on Microsoft’s .Net platform,http://freeemrsolution.com/emr-reviews/aprima-ehr-formerly-imedica/ which means that it is both modern and enduring. Aprima has highlighted this advantage as a key differentiator in a market where some other technologies are aging. The company has benefited as a result.
Beyond its modern technology, Aprima 2011 is also a very functionally advanced system. The company achieved 2011/2012 certification through CCHIT, which means that users of the system can become eligible for stimulus funds under ARRA. This is evidence that the system meets the rigorous functional requirements laid out by CCHIT and HHS. Importantly, the entire Aprima system is built on a single database, which allows users to seamlessly work across clinical and office workflows in one familiar system.
Aprima has also invested considerably in interoperability. The system can communicate with systems used by payers and hospitals, as well as a wide range of medical devices. The system’s .Net infrastructure has a lot to do with that, as .Net is designed to improve how systems communicate.
Aprima serves the range of primary care and specialty providers. From a size of practice standpoint, Aprima can function well for solo practices all the way up to groups with twenty-five physicians. While lesser known than some of the “big names” in EHR, Aprima is a smart choice for most provider’s short lists.
