Acrendo Software Introduces AImed – Integrated Medical Practice Management Software targeted at Small/Medium-sized Medical Offices

Low-Cost Software integrates Billing, Scheduling, Patient Demographics and Electronic Medical Records (EMR)

SAN DIEGO, CA (January 22, 2004) –

Acrendo Software today introduced the latest version of AImed (pronounced a-eye-med), its MS Windows-based Medical Practice Management software. The newly released AImed 4.5 (formerly MedTrax) adds optional Billing and EMR modules to the Scheduling, Patient Demographics and External Communication functionality found in the previous version. The new Billing and EMR modules are rich in features important to smaller practices, and are tightly integrated with AImed Standard Edition. Also included in the new release are significant improvements to the Standard Edition.

The new version of AImed has been well-received by users. “For years we used one of the more expensive products on the market, and it never did work well, not to mention the lack of support,” said Nanna Poulsen, Manager of the California Pacific Medical Center. “Then we switched to AImed, and our problems were solved practically overnight.”

The AImed Billing and EMR modules work together with the Standard Edition to provide dramatic time savings and efficiency for medical practices. Up to 50% of data entry is eliminated relative to standalone applications, and the time savings versus paper-based manual methods is even greater. The Billing Module features such powerful benefits as fast rebilling of old claims, real-time patient updating from the ledger screen, and the ability to view ledger notes while posting payments. The EMR module eases the entry of patient data via tight integration with document scanners and Dragon NaturallySpeaking®-Medical Edition. A powerful, custom-template creation tool is a major feature of the EMR module. The Standard Edition Scheduler has also been enhanced for increased flexibility and efficiency. AImed 4.5 is backed by an unconditional 30 day money back guarantee.

Acrendo is targeting Medical Practices with 10 or fewer physicians with an affordable, complete, integrated software solution. “We believe there is a void in this market segment,” said Phil Morettini, Acrendo Executive Vice President. “Existing solutions are expensive, difficult to use and often must be integrated in a piecemeal fashion. AImed is designed and priced to overcome these barriers to automating smaller medical offices. In conjunction with the introduction of Aimed 4.5, we are aggressively recruiting channel partners in the US and internationally to extend our reach in the small/medium-sized Medical Practice market segment.”

AImed 4.5 is shipping and available directly from Acrendo and through select Value-Added Resellers. Entry level prices start below $1000. For more information visit or contact the company directly at or 858.268.1150 .
