Doctorsoft is a cloud based browser based ophthalmic EHR that is the industry leader in efficiency.
Is Doctorsoft practice management system?
No, a practice management system is a scheduling, billing,and a report generation software design to automate the task of the front office and billing office thus saving staff time. On the other hand, Doctorsoft is a electronic health record (EHR) which is a software application that is designed to collect patient medical information including, medical history, medical exam, diagnostic test, prescriptions, procedures, and the preparation of billing information thus, saving physician time.
How is Doctorsoft different from other EHRs?
Doctorsoft is the industry leader in efficiency, thus saving physicians time. Some doctors using our EHR can examine and fully document 10-15 patients per hour. This efficiency can add up to hours of day of time saved that can result in lowering overhead cost and increasing physician time off. Doctorsoft’s efficiency is a result of the single page examview, streamlined drawing tool, and the ability for multiple users to simultaneously enter into the same patient chart.
Easy of Use
Doctorsoft is one of the easiest EHRs to use because you can enter information by either typing, tapping a touchscreen, or speaking into our cloud-based browser-based software also you can access doctorsoft in the same format from any device, anywhere, anytime. Our image management module is very easy to use for retrieval and comparison of images from any exam.
Doctorsoft adapts to every doctor’s style of practice by using customization. We don’t expect you to take time out to work on program templates or macros, instead we allow you to customize virtually every exam field to create a custom fit. For instance, the doctor can create favorites in every exam field, diagnostic test, prescriptions, procedures, laboratory or radiology test, plans, letters, educational material, and superbill.
I already have a practice manage system that I like, do I need to change it?
No, you don’t have to change your PM system. You can keep your PM system and interface it with Doctorsoft to serve as your practice’s EHR. As a result, there is no need to retrain your staff on the PM and that will make their job easier.
I don’t have a PM, do I need one?
If you don’t have a PM system now, you can still install doctorsoft and enjoy the time saving benefits of documenting with a electronic health record. If you want to add a PM system later, Doctorsoft is compatible with many PM systems on the market.
What should I do with my old paper charts?
You can use Doctorsoft to document from now and refer to the paper charts as needed. On the other hand, you can scan your paper charts and attached them to the patient’s electronic record in Doctorsoft. Most doctors prefer the first choice, but the decision is up to you.
Is software as a service (SAAS) as secure as a server-based on site system?
Yes, as a matter fact it is more secure and is the choice of many fortune 500 companies, large banks, and large social media sites. A server based system requires you to purchase, install, upgrade, and maintain sophisticated hardware and software, you are responsible for managing security including spam and virus control and well as physical security, air conditioning and power interruption, thus needed back up systems procedures and protocol and audit trails. On the other hand, as SAAS based EHR like Doctorsoft manages all of that for you. We use Amazon Web Services servers which are managed by a large team of highly skilled professionals whose job is to maintain the security and availability of the software system. Your data is backed up by the data center staff, so you do not need to backup your data in your office.
What about the internet connection, is that an issue?
“Having a single internet connection can be a potential weakness and that is why we recommend you have a primary internet connection and a backup from a different company. In our experience, Doctorsoft has been available over 99.99% of the time with the help of Amazon Web Services.
On the other hand, the internet access to Doctorsoft can be a strong point because you can have a satellite office with full EHR support with very little technical effort.”
How technically difficult is the Doctorsoft install?
You don’t have to be an IT professional to install Doctorsoft, if you already have a computer network system if your office, you have very little technical work to do. If you have no technical equipment on site, you will want to use an IT technical service to assist with the installation only.
Do I need special equipment to install Doctorsoft?
In general, most practices do not need special equipment. If you have a simple computer network with relatively up to date PC or MAC computers and good wifi connection, you are in good shape. If you like, you can add tablets or laptops for your convenience.

Does Doctorsoft support ICD-10?
Yes, Doctorsoft supports ICD-10 and had one of the easiest transitions to ICD-10 in the industry. The reason for this is because Doctorsoft also supports SNOMED (international classification of signs) use in the exam fields. The crosswalk from SNOMED to ICD-10 is considered the best in the industry.
