Doctations Empowers Priority Pediatrics’ Innovative New After Hours Pediatric Urgent Care Service

Doctations, Inc., an innovative leader in applying Internet technology to improve healthcare, provides Priority Pediatrics, a new after-hours pediatric urgent care center, with fast, easy to use internet-based electronic medical record keeping and practice management tools that enables the center to efficiently deliver critical after hours urgent care to children and adolescents.

Opened in October 2009, Priority Pediatrics offers parents a calm, comfortable alternative to hospital emergency rooms for non-life threatening medical problems that occur after hours when primary care pediatricians’ offices are closed. They chose Doctations’ powerful web-based solution for medical record keeping and information sharing because it was the only fast, easy-to-use online system that could enable them to keep up with rapid pace of urgent care environments and deliver high quality, time-critical medical care to the most vulnerable patient population.

“Our goal is to give families a less stressful alternative to the typical crowded, frenetic hospital ER experience, so it’s vital for us to be highly effective and efficient,” commented Dr. Robert van Amerongen, medical director for Priority Pediatrics. “If it takes two or three minutes to diagnose a medical problem, it shouldn’t take fifteen or twenty minutes to document and discharge. The Doctations system is fast and simple to use, allowing us to record all the crucial medical data quickly so we can spend the majority of our time treating patients. Doctations enables our urgent care practice while helping us achieve our objective of a paperless office at the same time.”

Priority Pediatrics augments the services of patients’ primary care pediatricians, so collaborative communication with primary care providers is an essential element of the center’s practice. With the Doctations system, the center’s providers can easily communicate and share medical information online with other doctors such as digital Xrays, EKGs and test results as well as diagnoses, medications and urgent care treatments administered. For example, in the case of a broken bone, the center’s team can share the child’s Xrays and treatment details with the primary care pediatrician and orthopedist in real time over the web for seamless healthcare.

“Doctations is committed to improving healthcare by automating medical records keeping and practice management, facilitating collaboration among physicians and empowering the doctor-patient relationship,” said Jerry Kolosky, COO of Doctations. “It’s gratifying to see how our system is enabling Priority Pediatrics to provide a novel new urgent care service that spares children and parents the trauma of ER visits, facilitating collaboration with other healthcare providers and empowering parents with more control over their children’s medical care. Priority Pediatrics is a perfect example of how Doctations is helping to revolutionize healthcare delivery.”

About the Doctations System

Doctations provides Internet-based technology as a service to physicians, other healthcare providers and patients – and forms the basis for connecting practices, providers and patients in one Internet space while simultaneously maintaining the privacy of each practice and patient.

The Doctations solution gives physicians easy, online, on-demand access to patient medical records, medical information databases and shared patient databases, and empowers patients with the ability to share a single, complete set of information, or medical record, with their doctors, and collaborate interactively with their healthcare team. By implementing the medical practice management and digital documentation solutions as web-native tools, Doctations provides doctors and patients with advanced, secure, HIPAA compliant, comprehensive solutions that are substantially less expensive than any other options currently available.
