Metro South Medical Center Makes it Easier to Practice Medicine

Quorum Metro South Medical Center has signed up to improve efficiencies via AlertMD.

A $6 pizza has a website where you can watch the pie being made, $100 car insurance is sold to us by a lizard, a lady in flowing-white-robe or a dude called Jake. In the meanwhile, $20,000 surgeries are coordinated via fax, an old phone system and sometimes, a web portal where a patient leaves a message on a Friday and has no clue if you have read it by Tuesday AM and calls your switchboard and waits for 17 minutes.

"Alexa®", I need an MRI" - be part of that new reality or get Margie'd. Your patients don't care about ACOs, population health or whether you have the EMR with the blue button or the red button. They care about whether it is easy to work with you - PERIOD. Do not wait until your practice gets "Margie'd" by competition. Contact Badri Narasimhan [email protected] and make it easier for your patients.

About Margie® - AlertMD's ambulatory extension, Margie® - is a persona for your health system. She talks to your patients via the web, phone and Alexa®. No more elevator music for your patients on your clinic phone line. Margie® is a Machine-Assisted Recommendation and Guidance Engine that you configure to meet your needs. Watch this 2-minute video for a preview of Margie® here.

Note - Only 16-23% of patient interactions come through your portal - even in a well-oiled practice. 50% of your daytime calls should not even require human intervention. Margie® digitizes the remainder, guides more patients to your portal as you see fit and creates a centralized switchboard for all your locations. And oh, we are thinking that your patients would rather text you than call you - texting my doctor's office is so 2019.

AlertMD Completes Marquee Integration

AlertMD integrates with Alaska Regional Hospital to automate the census for Alaska Heart real-time through an HL7 Interface.

As every new patient relationship for one of our physician practices, Alaska Heart, is established at Alaska Regional Hospital, a real-time message communicates that to AlertMD.

The patient is then assigned to the appropriate physician within AlertMD and shows up on the mobile device of the physician in the group. A few seconds of processing later, charges for the patient are now submitted, and the patient status at the clinic is checked. If it is an existing patient, a new visit is created and charges entered into the PM system. If it is a new patient, the patient is automatically registered, and charges head back into the practice with it. The moment a patient is assigned to a physician, we then track charges to ensure that every charge the patient is due is billed.

All of this is what happens today via the AlertMD mobile platform at Alaska Heart. We are announcing more clients and more integrations with hospitals. In the coming weeks, we will announce one of the largest hospital-owned physician group to adopt AlertMD. Three other clients that each employ 100+ physicians will also be announced in the coming weeks.

In addition to all of this, we are also unveiling our fully-text based automated secure texting service to hospitals around the country with one hospital in the Chicago-area going live in a few months.

Thanks a lot for all your support, and we look forward to serving you.

Trinity Hospital Picks AlertMD

Trinity Hospital entered into an agreement to make their hospital easy to do business at via AlertMD.

This hospital, which has been around for over 115 years, now stands to gain from DRG benefits, nursing labor improvements, a simpler path from ICD9 to ICD10, and much more.

As we increase our geographical footprint around the country, hospitals like Trinity that aim to differentiate themselves from competition, prepare for the DRG changes coming in the next few years, and increase profitability through better organization of nursing overtime wages, are who will lead the pack.

We are poised to announce more clients – hospitals and practices nationwide. From large IDNs to single hospitals, the challenges today are the same, and we are proud to help hospitals meet them.

New Hospitals and Physician Practices Continue to Choose AlertMD

We are proud to say that our stunning adoption rate continues on as we archive strong growth in just 7 days.

In the last 7 days, we have announced the following new customers:

  1. Tallahassee Neurological Clinic in Tallahassee, FL - exclusive neurology and neurosurgery provider to the 772-bed Tallahassee Memorial Healthcare location, has signed on to both AlertMD and ChargeMD.
  2. Oak Park Pediatrics in IL has signed on to AlertMD.
  3. Family Care Network in Whatcom County, WA went live with ChargeMD.
  4. And most importantly, we now receive a live census from Legacy Health Systems, a chain of 7 hospitals in the state of Washington for our customers that practice in 2 of the 7 hospitals. All they had to do was to ask the hospital to make it easy for them to do business there. If you do not get a census from your hospital onto your iPad/ iPhone directly, you may be only an email away. Ask and you may be able to make this happen for you!

Thanks a lot for your support, and we are delighted by our continued growth.

Major Hospital to Make Census Electronically Available

Advocate Lutheran General Hospital has made it easy for its physicians to do business there by publishing its census via AlertMD.

Advocate Lutheran General is a teaching hospital, research center, and Level I trauma center with 645 beds. One of AlertMD's largest hospital partnerships yet.

With 1500+ physicians on staff, this brings convenience on an unparalleled basis to the facility. Within seconds of using the physician’s mobile device to scan a barcode at Advocate Lutheran General Hospital, the facesheet is brought back to the practice’s billing system along with charges for the hospital visit. AlertMD’s automatic missing charge module helps physician practices ensure that every single consult ever seen by the physician is billed for. Our intelligent coding module would make it easy for physicians to learn coding principles. We currently have licenses for ICD9 and are transitioning into ICD10 to guarantee that our billing options remain up-to-date for your physicians.

For some of our customers who do not have interfaces with the hospitals where you practice, this is a great indicator that innovative, physician-friendly hospitals will indeed move to serve you. Let us know if you want to work with your hospital administration to receive your census on your mobile device, and we will gladly enable such interfaces where you practice.

We are talking to hospital systems representing 120 hospitals around the country and look forward to bringing you more innovation to you.

AlertMD Adds 2 New Hospitals to their Network

As of earlier today, Edward Hospital ( announced that it will be publishing its census to is physicians via AlertMD.

With these new hospital partners, we are able to provide a constantly updated hospital census lists to all of our provider practices that round there.

Additionally, after purchasing our mobile census platform, here is what the president of Advocate Good Samaritan hospital had to say:

"Advocate Good Samaritan hospital is constantly on the lookout for solutions that will make it easier for our physicians to do business with us. We found in AlertMD the ability to publish our census to our practicing physicians. Rather than have them print a paper copy of their rounding list, which becomes outdated the minute they print it and take notes on it, we have now signed up to enable our physicians to get their census electronically on their smartphone or tablet. We are very keen on excellent physician satisfaction and engagement for practicing physicians, and AlertMD is a key strategic initiative to help us with it."

- Dave Fox, President, Advocate Good Samaritan Hospital
