The arrivals of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act and the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health Act have caused a transition in electronic health records.
That’s where Susan Chandler and her company steps in.
Chandler and Twin Physician Services are helping facilities and physicians make the transition to electronic health records by providing outsourced EHR services. That’s the best of both worlds — access to top quality electronic equipment without all of the costs associated with purchasing and installing new systems.
“There is a big incentive package from the government for physicians who can implement and use EHR,” Chandler said. “We believe that our package to physicians will be the most cost-effective and efficient system available in the Las Vegas market. These new systems will help shape the health care environment as we know it.”
Chandler was recently named to the national HealthCare Billing and Management Association board of directors, the largest medical billing association in the United States. Her presence on the board will give Nevada a voice when it comes to discussion of billing and records issues.
Accuracy and efficiency, Chandler said, are two words that she uses a lot in her business.
“I believe those two words will also be followed by integrity and honesty,” she said. “Those are the most important features of any business when representing their clients.”
Chandler has co-chaired the executive committee of the Southern Nevada Medical Industry Coalition. She is a 2002 graduate of the Leadership Las Vegas program, and also serves on the local board of Civitan International and assists in a variety of other charities.
