TEMPLATES WERE USEFUL IN THE SIXTIES BUT DO NOT BELONG IN 21st CENTURY ELECRONIC HEALTH / MEDIAL RECORDS (EHR/EMR):
The first EHR began to appear in the sixties. Many of the currently marketed EHR are based on the pioneering work performed by academic medical centers. Computer and software technology has evolved since then. Mainframes, Mini-computers, green screen terminals and the early computer programming languages have given way to powerful PCs and high level user-friendly systems. Also, the pervasive Internet has become an integral part of our daily lives. The confines of technology that limited the power and flexibility of the early EHR systems are long gone. However, may EHR systems seem to be caught in a time warp. Dependence upon disease-based templates has not been shed in the 21st Century.

EASE OF USE: 
Our competitor's puzzling products have a steep learning curve. Nesticon was built around an intuitive, simple and unified, browser-based interface. There is a shallow learning curve of hours or days rather than weeks or months. You use context-specific sub-menus, check boxes and text entry boxes to create detailed transcription-style clinical reports that document your patient's level of Evaluation and Management. Navigation is simple and you never get lost in a myriad of open spreadsheet type windows.
 If you have banked on-line or have bought a product on the Internet, you should feel comfortable with our interface.

BEST OF BREED TECHNOLOGY:
Nesticon leverages Microsoft's latest integrated Internet and server technology. A combination of AJAX (Asynchronous JavaScript and XML) and our patent pending business intelligence generates reports on the fly as menu items are selected or changed. This allows the user to see the generated text as data is entered, rather than waiting until a full report is generated. Unlike bulleted and fragmented phrases, the system produces narrative style reports. NO counter-intuitive templates. Random access entry of information is coupled with an innovative ranking system. Clinicians no longer need to force a patient to fit into a specific template.

 ICD-9 CODES WERE DESIGNED FOR BILLINIG PURPOSES AND WERE NOT MEANT TO BE USED AS INITIAL CLINICAL DIAGNOSES AND DO NOT ACCOMODATE A DIFFERENTIAL DIAGNOSIS:
Most currently available EHR products employ ICD-9 billing codes as diagnoses in clinical reports. ICD-9 codes were not designed for this purpose and do not provide other healthcare providers with enough clinical information in regards to the specific clinical diagnoses that were entertained by the clinician who generated the report. Nor does it include the differential diagnosis. "786.59: Other Chest Pain {Discomfort} {Pressure} {Tightness} in chest" cannot provide the same clinical information as "Atypical angina. Probable ischemic heart disease".

AFFORDABLE:
With Medicare cuts and rising overhead, most physicians are struggling to keep their doors open. Making a large capital outlay to acquire a "top tier" EHR program is not a viable option. Selecting an inexpensive product that "does not get the job done" is also a poor choice. 
    Driven by the limitations of many currently available products and the high cost of EHR ownership, Nesticon was founded by a former Medical School Professor and Chief of Cardiology to develop an affordable and innovative EHR system. No large up front costs and need for owning expensive hardware and software. An affordable monthly fee, an Internet connection and use of low end PCs, notebooks and Tablet PCs puts you in the driver's seat.

What is Included in the Nesticon™ Software:

Nesticon™ is a pure browser-based EHR program. If you bank or shop online, you are ready to start using our system. If not, you can be trained in a matter of hours or days. You have secure HIPAA compliant access to your patient data from your office, clinic, home, hospital, emergency department or any site with access to a computer and an Internet connection. 

  Your patient's data is stored in a secure HIPAA compliant site. The data is yours and incorporated as discrete searchable elements within an industry standard Microsoft SQL database server. It produces digitally signed reports in a PDF format. Portal friendly text files can also be produced. The PDF reports can be given to your patient, exchanged with other HL7-compliant EHR systems or transmitted as a personal health record.


What is NOT Included in the Nesticon™ Software:

 Greater than 75% of Health care providers have access to some form of an Electronic Practice Management (EPM) system that integrates both front and back office functions (www.Frost.com) while only 6.3% report using all the features of an integrated EHR-EPM System (The 2009 the National Center for Health Statistics Survey). Because of this we chose to not offer an integrated back office (billing and financial) module at this time. Instead we cover the Front office (patient registration and appointment scheduling) and middle office (patient care) functions of the office and help generate charges that can transferred electronically or manually into your favorite HL7-compliant EPM system, in-house billing clerks or outsourced billing service.
