ARLINGTON HEIGHTS, Ill. — The American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) announced today a three-year Endorsement Agreement of PatientNOW, Inc., an electronic medical record, practice management and patient engagement system to be available to ASPS Member Surgeons.
The agreement, which brings together the world’s largest specialty society of plastic surgeons with a comprehensive practice management software system for plastic surgery and aesthetic medical practices, will leverage both organizations’ respective strengths to develop and deliver the latest technological advances in electronic health records to plastic surgery practices.
“ASPS has a rich history of innovation in providing our members with practice management solutions that embrace emerging information technology tools,” said Robert X. Murphy, Jr, MD, president of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. “Through strategic collaborations, we transform the delivery of healthcare throughout the specialty of plastic surgery while also providing our members with competitive pricing on leading edge information technology.”
“PatientNOW is proud to be endorsed by ASPS and the high standards of excellence they represent in the aesthetic and reconstructive plastic surgery industry,” said Jerry Jacobson, president and founder of PatientNOW. “We are also excited to be a partner in bringing enhanced capability to member practices through new innovative software designed specifically for ASPS member surgeons.”
Additionally, ASPS and PatientNOW have also entered into a strategic partnership where ASPS will collaborate with PatientNOW to:
- Deliver more qualified prospective patients to each member surgeon through the Find-A-Surgeon integration. This will consist of a Patient Consultation Scheduling Feature (PCSF) between ASPS’ Find a Surgeon web directory and PatientNOW’s EMR/PM/PAR software systems
- Integrate the ASPS Patient Consent Library (PCL) into PatientNOW’s EMR, develop, test, deploy and maintain a PCSF and the integration of the PCL
- Integrate ASPS web content, content from consent forms, ASPS videos, and other ASPS licensed content into PatientNOW systems
- Deliver real time benchmark data to members
