FAQs

Questions? We’re here to answer anything you need to know about  about EHR and EMR systems, electronic data conversion, and MPAA Group services. Here are a few common concerns (feel free to contact us directly for further details about anything on your mind).

Q?

Why should I go digital?

A.

The HITECH Act (part of Obamacare) mandates medical practitioners to acquire electronic health record systems that allows for nationwide integration. In line with this, the government will give financial support to eligible medical practitioners to help them adapt the technology. Eligible medical practitioners include Doctors of Medicine, Osteopathology, Dental Surgery and Medicine, Podiatric Medicine, Optometry, and Chiropractors. Other medical practitioners such as nurses, medical psychologists, anesthetists, and dieticians can also apply for assistance.

Q?

How can MPAA help me go digital?

A.

We provide electronic data conversion services, reliable clinical data management systems, and EHR consultation for healthcare organizations from small clinics to hospitals. Our products and services follow government standards and we ensure optimal service at fair price.

Q?

How much will it cost me to go digital?

A.

The cost of an EHR system and electronic data conversion varies case by case depending on the complexity of the system and/or amount of data to be converted. Below are some of the factors affecting the cost of transitioning into EHR systems:

  • number of computers your organization will need
  • number of physicians and other medical practitioners who will use the system
  • level of training needed by your organization
  • degree of implementation assistance you need

Q?

Do all my electronic health records needed to be converted?

A.

Smaller clinics with more limited budgets usually opt not to convert all of their records into electronic forms due to lack of staff and other facilities. Larger organizations, on the other hand, tend to convert all their records because it is more convenient for them and they have a budget for it. In any case, MPAA can help make EHR system work for your business. We offer tailor-fit solutions that correspond to your needs and resources.

Q?

Which data can MPAA help me with?

A.

There are two types of data which we can help you abstract, convert, and manage:

  • patient schedules/appointments
  • patient demographics.

Q?

How can I be sure that my patients’ information is secured?

A.

Our systems are password-protected. In addition, physicians can decide the level of accessibility for staff to have over patient information.  Your records will not be compromised since our systems are equipped with firewalls and encryption mechanisms. Patient information can never be overwritten because keying in of records after they have been logged in is prohibited.

Q?

How reliable is the MPAA Group’s electronic records system?

A.

We can set up automatic backup sessions or you may opt to schedule system backup during breaks. Our systems are also disaster recovery-capable and we do assessments regarding system reliability such as power outage emergency plans and power backups. We also provide support for our clients 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and 365 days a year.

Q?

What exactly are the benefits of an electronic records system to my business?

A.

An EHR or EMR system saves you time, money, and space. In general, an EHR or EMR system can help you work efficiently and render better service to your patients.  

Q?

Will MPAA provide the hardware for me?

A.

MPAA Group provides software and personnel services (Virtual RNs); however,  we provide consultation for our clients to identify the proper hardware for them. Our team is comprised of both software and hardware experts who can help you make informed decisions.
