ATLANTA EYE/LASER PRACTICE INSTALLS CARELINC INFORMATION SUITE.

CareLinc Corporation, Atlanta, a developer of Ambulatory-based Clinical Information Systems, has signed an implementation agreement with the Practice of Pfoff Eye & Laser for the CareLinc Clinical Information Suite.

CareLinc provides ambulatory medical specialty based provider organizations with a user-friendly solution designed to assist in the management of medical practice information. The fully integrated system supports clinical workflow management, a fully Electronic Medical Record, Patient & Resource Scheduling, Global Patient Registration and Billing. The system combines a computer-based patient record module with ophthalmic specialty-specific knowledge bases and templates. The management system automatically incorporates ICD 9/ CPT and E&M coding, a comprehensive interactive drug formulary, and virtually eliminates the dictation and transcription processes. The CareLinc System supports text, voice, and digital images as part of the overall patient record and can operate in single-site clinics as well as throughout complex healthcare network environments.

CareLinc has designed this system to augment and enhance the care delivery process while supporting the uniqueness of the healthcare network environment. Physicians can measure the quality and cost of clinical encounters while processing vital patient information and clinical outcomes at their fingertips.

"Our staff is excited about the prospects of installing the CareLinc System at our practice," said Dr. David Pfoff M.D. We have been a paperless office for several years and wanted to install a next generation system that will allow us to advance even further. CareLinc provided us with the answer."

"We are excited about installing the CareLinc System at Pfoff Eye and Laser Institute, a busy Denver ophthalmology practice. The choice of the CareLinc System to meet their clinical information management requirements further establishes our leadership position within the ophthalmology specialty" said Al Vega, CareLinc Corporation president and CEO.
