CareCloud Earns High Rankings Across Several EHR Categories in Black Book Survey

MIAMI–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Black Book Market Research’s latest ambulatory technology rankings have
launched just in time for medical practices looking to switch to a new
electronic health record (EHR) system before MACRA MIPS deadlines this
fall. The 2017 report is sourced from over 17,000 verified, unbiased EHR
users rating their technology vendors in 18 performance indicators.
CareCloud, the platform for high-performance medical groups, is named a
top vendor in 11 categories, including earning the No. 1 ranking for
family medicine.

“Family practice is the center of healthcare’s new value-based care
economy,” said Ken Comée, CEO of CareCloud. “Being named the No. 1 EHR
by physicians and practice executives in this field is especially
rewarding because of the impact it has on the daily healthcare for
millions of patients. Our customers are clearly responding to the
investment we’re making in the flexibility of our cloud-based EHR and
practice management platform.”

CareCloud is also named a top three vendor for internal medicine, mobile
EHR applications, and single and solo surgical practice in the latest
Black Book survey. In the top 10 category, the company is awarded for
ophthalmology, sleep center medicine, and urology specialties in
addition to being the top-rated EHR vendor for MACRA MIPS technology.
The company is also ranked for otorhinolaryngology/ENT,
orthopedic/hand/spine surgery, and oncology/hematology. In family
practice, CareCloud is named to the No. 1 spot over vendors Practice
Fusion, eClinicalWorks, Allscripts, and athenahealth.

Black Book also recently presented CareCloud with two awards earned in
late 2016: the No. 1 vendor in practice management and the No. 1
cloud-based EHR.

Commenting on the findings, Doug Brown, managing partner of Black Book,
said, “Healthcare technology vendors need to focus on mobile, cloud, and
data integration to successfully meet the future demands of the changing
healthcare landscape.”

CareCloud recently issued a MIPS
for clients considering switching to the cloud platform
from any legacy vendor. The guarantee promises that any medical practice
clients using the latest version of CareCloud Charts EHR as of September
30, 2017, will avoid penalties from CMS under MIPS. Any clients that
follow their customized action plan developed by their dedicated account
manager and still receive penalties will see those penalties covered by
CareCloud. Eligible clinicians who do not submit MIPS data in 2017 will
face a four-percent fee adjustment penalty to their Medicare Part B
reimbursements in 2019.

“MIPS is bringing about a new phase in the movement to value-based care
as it is giving providers a significant financial incentive to make sure
their EHR platform is making the right data visible and actionable,”
said Laurie Hart, director of product management, CareCloud. “What we’re
experiencing is consistent with what Black Book is hearing in that
practices are increasingly leaving their legacy software behind for
cloud-based EHR technology because they need the openness, flexibility,
and computing power to be able to both deliver and demonstrate value to
payers and patients.”
