    to add and monitor acute or chronic problems for
    their patients.

    enter the bulk of the information while you are
    with the patient and then add the details before
    saving it in the finished form.
  • Note on Hold is also an excellent way for
    nursing staff to start a document and then set it
    aside for the physician to finish.

Client Testimonials
  • "After I purchased EMR software (Charting Plus),
    I was able to reduce my staff by three people, a
    savings of 75,000 per year and that is a
    permanent manpower reduction. Actually I see 20
    to 25 more patients per day than I did before I
    had the software. I am more efficient because
    what I do now is see patients, not produce a
    record of the visit the EMR software (Charting
    Plus) does that.Michael R. Hoffmann, M.D
  • This product is worth its weight in gold and I
    could not go back to paper ever again.Ivan
    Jacobs, M.D.
  • "Charting Plus absolutely saved my bacon, without
    it I would have had difficulty producing
    documentation and would have had to repay
    150,000 to Medicare! My return on investment has
    been about 2,000." Alan Tannenbaum, M.D.
  • I am sure there is a tremendous amount of things
    this program will do that will help me in my
    practice. My wife is a RN who does quality
    management for an insurance company. She reviews
    physician's records to check levels of
    documentation. I showed her one of my finished
    initial visit notes and she said it was the best
    she had seen. Great job!Robert N. Osdyke, DPM,

    program is and how easily we can customize it.
    You can quote me on that! Lawrence W. Elmer,
  • I have already started to sell MediNotes as an
    idea for changing from dictation in the practice
    I am purchasing. Once they see the vast potential
    they will think I'm a genius! Do you sell stock?
    Maybe I can get in early if you all are going to
    be the next Microsoft!Debra Young, D.P.M.

  • I love Charting Plus. ... cut my dictation
    costs in half, and it contains all the needed
    information. They are really podiatry oriented. I
    checked all the other programs and this one held
    up to all my requirements. Dr. Tim Shea
  • Just recently, I had a follow up audit by
    Medicare to evaluate my coding versus the
    treatment rendered. Previously my charting was
    not concise enough for Medicare and I was
    required to reimburse some of the money to the
    Medicare program. I am pleased to announce at
    this audit they found no problems and
    congratulated me on the completeness of my
    records.It is due to your program that I am
    able to rest easy knowing that all of my charting
    is complete and accurate. The cost of your
    program has paid for itself. It is the best money
    I have ever spent.Dr. Rosa A. Montemayor

Client Testimonials
  • "I want to thank you again for the wonderful
    "pearls of wisdom" you passed along. I truly do
    appreciate it. It has taken hours off my daily
    dictation. I actually spent less than three
    minutes on an initial office visit level 3!Dr.

    years ago.Dr. Patricia Vitko-Shulla

Client Testimonials
  • "Charting Plus has allowed our high volume
    practice to reduce all costs associated with
    charting. Filing, dictating, transcribing, and
    re-filing are all processes that have become
    obsolete. The estimated annual reduction of
    expenses directly related to Charting Plus is
    30,000.John V. Guiliana, DPM, MS
  • As one of the three founders of Medinotes back
    in 1996, I have been very pleased to watch this
    program evolve. I am user number 1 and have used
    this program for every note every day since 1996.
    The new release is certified HIPPA compliant and
    is free (like all updates) to those who are up to
    date on their annual maintenance. This program
    offers tremendous value, is amazingly
    customizable, and works especially well in
    offices that do see a lot of Medicare patients. I
    believe there are now well over 1000 DPM
    users.Ken Malkin, DPM

Expansion Modules
Expansion modules are available at additional
cost to enhance the functionality of Charting
Plus. Modules can be purchased initially, or
added at a later date.
Synchronization Module

  • Hospital rounds
  • Nursing home rounds
  • On-call rotations
  • Satellite Offices
  • Theres no need for a dial-up line all of your
    information is accessible on your mobile
  • MediNotes Corporation has purposefully avoided
    the ASP model. Because of issues regarding
    confidentiality, accessibility, internet traffic
    delays and the spread of viruses we have opted
    for a different and more practical solution -
    Database Synchronization.

    pictures to be added to the system without the
    need for additional software. Simply use the
    acquire button in the multimedia dialog and
    specify the source.
  • The file can then be added to the Charting Plus
    database or linked to the multimedia folder and
    stored elsewhere on the network.

Custom Security Module
  • Similar to network permissions, the Custom
    Security Module allows the administrator to
    change the permissions for groups or individuals.
  • Program functionality may only be restricted
    for example physician licenses can be downgraded
    to restrict signing a note, but a nurse license
    may not be upgraded to allow them to sign a note.

Instant Medical History
  • Instant Medical History is patient interview
    software that gathers complete present illness
    and past medical histories before the encounter.
    Patients respond to multiple choice questions
    that branch based on their responses. These
    questions are mapped to the objects used in
    Charting Plus and can be directly imported into
    the patients note, requiring much less time and
    effort for the clinical staff. Once the
    information has been imported into the system it
    can be reviewed with the patient for accuracy
    before moving on to the physical exam.
  • Enabling the patient to enter the data necessary
    to populate the subjective portion of the medical
    record makes the time spent in the encounter more
    efficient and enhances communication. Both the
    patient and the doctor are focused on the health
    concerns presented at the start of the encounter.

    passed directly to the patients permanent
    medical record.

Electronic Patient Scheduling
  • The stand-alone patient scheduling system,
    AppointmentsPRO, can be interfaced with Charting
  • AppointmentsPRO integrates with the Patients for
    the Day screen in Charting Plus to allow
    physicians to more easily see their patient load
    and access the patients electronic folder
    without searching for their name.

  • The IMPACT.MD Document Management system allows
    users to quickly and easily scan multi-page
    documents and file them into the patients
    electronic depository.

X-Link (Interface Middleware)
  • Over the past 7 years, MediNotes Corporation has
    established relationships with many Practice
    Management software companies and designed an
    interface between our two systems.
  • Many of the interfaces rely on a middleware
    program called X-Link. This software acts
    seamlessly between the two program and ensures
    that demographics from the PMS system are updated
    to Charting Plus and that the exam codes from
    Charting Plus are exported to the PMS system.
