“ClinicAid is well written and integrated so that it presents a very neat and clean interface that is modern and intuitive to use,” says John Fernandez, MD, a general practitioner in private practice in Calgary AB. “The system allows a billing item to be entered and submitted in less than five seconds on average. The time savings on billing alone is unbeatable, and accuracy is ensured by the fact that the person providing the service is the one submitting the billing.”
In addition to its ease of navigation and its convenience, ClinicAid is a highly secure option for medical practices throughout Alberta. All of a medical practice’s data maintained by ClinicAid is safeguarded in locations around Canada and is backed up daily and replicated across facilities. All of the data centers for ClinicAid are designed to protect from unwanted access, theft, and physical damage from fire and water. Multiple security checkpoints are in place between the door and ClinicAid servers, and the site is monitored by cameras around the clock.
The helpful reporting tools feature of ClinicAid allows medical professionals to easily check the status of invoices, identify claims for potential errors, filter reports through many different variables, and confirm what amount(s) the government has approved for payment. Physicians like Dr. Fernandez who have used ClinicAid say they hope it will encourage more healthcare professionals in Alberta to adopt the Oscar EMR system since ClinicAid now provides a fully integrated billing component that works with it.
OSCAR is an Open Source Electronic Medical Record (EMR) software. OSCAR stands for “Open Source Clinical Application Resource.” It is a full featured practice management web application which includes scheduling, billing, prescriptions, charting and more. It was initially developed in Canada for Canadian physicians by McMaster University in Hamilton Ontario.
