SOMERSET, NJ--(Marketwired - Apr 19, 2017) - MTBC (NASDAQ: MTBC) (NASDAQ: MTBCP), a leading provider of mHealth and cloud-based clinical and practice management solutions, today announced the appointment of Jon Bertman, MD, FAAFP, a pioneer in the development of provider-centric electronic health records (EHR), to lead the final design and launch phase of TalkEHR™ (www.talkehr.com), the newest addition to MTBC's suite of provider-focused healthcare solutions.
"Physicians have been clicking through pages of checkboxes for far too long," said Bertman. "In TalkEHR, the vision is to leverage voice recognition and artificial intelligence in ways that improve patient outcomes, while reducing provider and staff burnout." He continued, "Our goal is to allow the clinical team to practice medicine, while technology assists in providing evidence-based best practices, and other clinically-relevant information, at the point-of-care."
In addition to intelligent voice control and EBM guidelines, TalkEHR provides a suite of integrated solutions that allow clinicians to run a 'turn-key' practice. Features include integrated billing and practice management, real-time insurance eligibility, online patient scheduling, automated reminders, third-party claim submission, and smartphone and tablet apps for clinicians and their patients. TalkEHR, which is Meaningful Use Stage 3 certified, leverages MTBC's experience in improving healthcare delivery through improved healthcare technology.
Dr. Bertman is a graduate of the University of Massachusetts Medical School and has practiced family medicine in Rhode Island for nearly two decades. In 2001, Bertman launched AmazingCharts®, which received accolades for being easy-to-use and, under his leadership, became one of the most widely used EHRs in the 1-10 ambulatory physician market. Bertman is a serial entrepreneur, prolific healthcare writer, and has received multiple awards, including Modern Physician magazine's "Physician Entrepreneur of the Year" in 2010.
