Ascend Launches New EMR


REDWOOD CITY, Cali.— Ascend Clinical, the nation’s leading provider of ESRD laboratory testing and information delivery services for independent providers, today launched Ascend Chart, a dialysis clinical EMR tailored to the needs of independent dialysis clinics.

Collaborative Development
Designed, tested and refined alongside dialysis nurses, nephrologists, dietitians and facility administrators, Ascend Chart maps to the workflow, care, and business requirements of independent providers.

Already part of the NRAA/CROWNWeb Pilot Program, Ascend Chart will deliver data directly through the NRAA Health Information Exchange (HIE), eliminating the need for time-consuming Network reporting.

“Streamlining workflow and reducing administrative burden enables our clients to compete in the changing dialysis marketplace while providing excellent patient care” states Paul Beyer, chief executive officer. “Building on the simplicity of LabCheck, Ascend Chart drives consistency and quality, tracks QIP parameters and delivers business and patient reporting that is unmatched in our industry.”

Easy To Learn, Easy to Use
Ascend Chart enables even the newest staff members to operate with confidence, guiding staff through admission, orders, treatments and reporting. Manual data entry is minimized though industry standardized and customizable selections, saving time and reducing the chance for errors or omissions. Dialysis machine interfaces input treatment data directly to the system.

High Functionality, Low Cost of Ownership
With predictable per patient, per month pricing and cloud-based hosting, Ascend Chart requires no up-front investment. All system and software upgrades are securely managed by Ascend Clinical, with no software to maintain and upgrade, or data storage to consider.
