  • (1888PressRelease) August 18, 2010 - Goshen, New York - Waiting Room Solutions® (WRS) (, a leading web-based EHR and PMS provider, announced today that Palm Beach Cardiovascular Associates has chosen the Waiting Room Solutions Cardiology Electronic Health Record (EHR) system and Practice Management (PM) system for its cardiology practice (

    Palm Beach Cardiovascular Associates, a practice that specializes in cardiothoracic and vascular surgery, has been treating patients in Palm Beach Gardens, FL for 27 years. The practice has two providers and ten employees, and performs surgeries with three hospitals in the area in addition to its office location. Dr. Joseph A. Motta, MD has 34 years of clinical experience, while Dr. Richard S. Faro has 38 years of experience in the cardiovascular field. Between the two physicians, Palm Beach Cardiovascular Associates sees approximately 60 patients per day, five days a week. The practice typically sees patients that are 18 or older for appointments involving post-op care, procedures, new patients, follow-ups, and vascular testing.

    The Waiting Room Solutions Cardiology EHR and PM system was created by cardiologists to ensure that the software fit the specialty's specific needs. Among the many features offered are EKG integration, import of nuclear stress tests, and echocardiogram reports, hypertension and heart disease quality care and PQRI incentive reporting, standardized cardiology procedure notes, and cardiology document management. Like all WRS specialty systems, the Cardiology EHR also has electronic prescription and medication management capabilities as well as lab interfaces with Quest, LabCorp, and others. Lastly, the system has cardiology CPT codes and ICD-9 crosswalks, and cardiac medicine templates for quick carting. These templates include those for cardiac catheterization, cardiac exam, hypertension, heart disease, health screening, and referral letters.

    "Up until this point Palm Beach Cardiovascular Associates has used EHR and PM systems such as Medisoft and Medical Manager Pro, but the Waiting Room Solution's Cardiology software has convinced the practice that this system could better serve our needs," said Dr. Faro. "Our practice also has our own templates, we like the fact that Waiting Room Solutions EHR system could convert these charts and allows us to import patient demographic data into the system."

    "The WRS Cardiology Specialty software is designed to improve efficiency, profitability and patient care, and Palm Beach Cardiovascular Associates can take advantage of these benefits as soon as possible," said Dr. Larry Gordon, CEO and founder of Waiting Room Solutions. "I know Palm Beach Cardiovascular Associates was coordinating scheduling using our scheduler (see picture) between the office and hospitals for surgeries, and getting authorizations and consent forms to the hospitals in a limited time frame. Waiting Room Solutions makes it simple to handle all of these functions with one web-based system, which can be accessed from anywhere with an internet connection for added convenience," he added.
