Accelerate 2019. A recap, a preview, and our thanks

Evolution with YOU and Your Practice in Mind

Each September the MicroMD Operations Teams gathers to evaluate what we’ve accomplished for the year and plan for next year’s focus. As we prepare to enter into the New Year, please join me in reviewing progress on our 2019 strategic initiatives and get a sneak peek what we’ll be focusing on next – all topped off with a thank you – because we can’t evolve without you.

A recap: Accelerate 2019

Accelerate 2019 is the label we apply to our annual focus. Our annual focus encompasses a list of strategic initiatives we commit to making a reality during the year – strategic initiatives that are intended to yield the greatest positive impact on your experience with MicroMD software, Solutions, and staff across your most current challenges. In addition to the host of new features launched with each major version, take a look at some of the strategic projects we tackled in 2019 to help get you back to the business of healing:

A preview: Accelerate 2020 – New challenges; new focuses

It’s amazing how quickly things change in the healthcare space. Your software, solutions, and how we support your efforts needs to change quickly too. Going into 2020, we’ve updated our list of practice challenges to reflect your current environment and we’ve planned a number of strategic projects to address those areas. We’re prioritizing efforts next year with a focus on improving your experience with MicroMD software, solutions, and services, including reducing data entry and improving end user adoption to ensure practices have the training and tools needed to maximize use of advanced features and solutions. And, while we have a small window of reprieve from significant EHR certification development, we’re also preparing to dedicate significant development hours to revamps of areas that have been long-standing pain points, like ICD code searching and selection.
