Automate more of your nephrology care

The EHR/EMR software you choose for your nephrology practice makes all the difference in how efficient and effective your patient care can be. Nephrologists are tasked with managing a range of patients, from one-time complaints or issues to ongoing, complex care management with chronic kidney disease and end-stage renal disease.

Trying to fit “computer time” into your patient workflows is a challenge. Many providers know how important it is to enter information and track patient data in an EHR. It’s required for reporting, and also improves other downstream processes like medical coding and billing. But an inefficient or cumbersome EHR/EMR software for nephrology practices ends up taking more time away from patients, or adding more stress for kidney care doctors.

AdvancedMD knows how frustrating these challenges can be. That’s why we designed our software with input from actual practicing physicians. We provide a streamlined and seamless flow to capture all the data you need for better patient care, without spending all your time on the computer. With AdvancedMD you get:

Templates for the most common conditions
you treat in your nephrology practice, including chronic kidney disease, kidney stones, flank pain, ESRD, and more.

Completely customizable workflows
for all your providers and staff members, so each person can create an EHR flow specific to the way they interact with patients during an encounter.

Automated alerts
to help you stay on top of necessary care for patients and avoid errors, including medication risks, upcoming or recommended preventive screenings, overdue tests, and more.

Shortcut keys
and simple entry features to make it easier to enter key information that rarely changes—for example, a shortcut feature that automatically fills in key details on a chief complaint that is common in your practice.

The need for EHR/EMR software isn’t going away. But practitioners can reduce the administrative burden of entering all that information in an EHR (without losing the benefits for your practice and your patients) by automating more of the process.

Nephrology EHR Software

Connected & coordinated care for independent nephrology practices

Managing complex kidney care patients isn’t easy, but with the right tools from AdvancedMD you can coordinate care among multiple providers for even the most complicated cases.

Interface with external lab & imaging facilities

Pull in all the important data from lab and imaging facilities for each patient. We offer built-in application programming interfaces (APIs) for the most common external imaging and lab software programs. If we don’t have an API for the software you need, we can help you build a connection to transfer data between systems and import it directly into the patient’s record.

Store & retrieve images quickly

Our software offers an advanced PACS to maintain images and results from imaging tests. You can quickly search and retrieve information from PACS during a patient encounter, or between appointments as you are managing care or reviewing imaging results.

Connect with external providers

Many kidney care patients will see more than just a nephrologist, so coordinating care is an essential part of providing patients with what they need. Our system works well with a wide variety of external EHRs so you can transfer patient data seamlessly between systems. Our APIs and connectivity minimize the time your staff spends uploading, downloading, or manually transferring information. They also ensure accurate data transfer to reduce the risk of errors in medical care for your complex ESRD, CKD, and other patients.

Keep patients’ records and data organized

Never miss critical data that can improve care and outcomes for kidney patients. Maintain all the important paperwork for your patients in a single place with our EHR that connects to an integrated database on the backend of the AdvancedMD nephrology software. You can store, search, and sort through:

  • Releases
  • Consents
  • Evaluations (mental health, kidney health)
  • Past and upcoming appointments
  • Dialysis care
  • Medications, and more

Ongoing care management for complex kidney disease patients

Care management is one of the most effective ways to improve care for patients with ESRD or advanced chronic kidney disease. AdvancedMD makes it easier to ensure the best care for these patients with tools that help you see what’s happening between appointments. That includes:

Telehealth software
to stay in touch with your patients virtually between regular doctor visits. Our telemedicine portal allows your providers to connect with patients who might otherwise have a hard time getting in for regular appointments, or who need more than just an annual visit.

Remote patient monitoring (RPM) tech
that improves patient outcomes by alerting providers to important changes in patient health. Accurate, up-to-date data about patient health can help them avoid unnecessary and expensive ER visits by sending alerts to your nephrology clinic. Your staff can intervene with a phone call, schedule an appointment, or take other steps to reduce the chance that an issue becomes an emergency.

Dialysis round tracking
to monitor how many rounds of dialysis a patient has received in their ongoing care. Providers can use this information to adjust care plans and evaluate next steps for CKD and ESRD patients.

Automated data transfer
between practice management software, EHR, and medical coding and billing modules. When you have an integrated solution that uses a single database to store all your important patient and practice data, you never have to waste time transferring data between systems or worry about APIs and connectivity issues.

“The money I have invested in AdvancedMD is miniscule compared to the return. I have never been more efficient – ever – in my professional life as I am now.”

“[Our] patients are very well-educated and well-informed, and they want to see results quickly. The practice has to run extremely efficiently and be accessible to them. The nice thing about [AdvancedMD] is it has allowed me to be more efficient both in and out of the office. Now I don’t have to come back into the office, which is great for my family and everything else. It saves me a lot of time – probably an hour a day on the three days I work in the second office.”
