Rochester, NY - July 19, 2023 – Anodyne Clinical Corporation is pleased to introduce a groundbreaking innovation, FreeTime™ visit automation software, which effectively eliminates 12 to 15 minutes of Electronic Medical Record (EMR) interaction time per office visit. This state-of-the-art software is designed by Joseph DiPoala, Jr., MD FACP, a veteran in internal medicine and an 8-year user of athenaOne®.
FreeTime enables physicians to complete chart review, visit planning, and create an accurate office note in just one minute with minimal computer interaction, thereby significantly increasing practice productivity and profitability. Currently available for internal medicine, family medicine, and geriatric practices, further expansions into other specialties are planned.
Leveraging this cloud-based application, fully integrated with athenaOne, can reduce EMR interaction time by 90%, allowing providers to see more patients, enhancing primary care delivery across the board.
With FreeTime, Dr. DiPoala turned his vision into a reality, creating a tool that makes office visits more productive for providers and more satisfying for patients. By freeing up 2+ hours of daily computer interaction time, he was able to see more patients, cut practice costs, improve profitability, enhance billing accuracy, and increase his income by 25%.
FreeTime revolutionizes the patient interaction process by collecting patient history via an electronic, visit-specific questionnaire, reducing this part of the visit from 5-10 minutes of provider time to just 1 minute of support staff time. A recent time and motion study demonstrated that for a common 3-condition complex visit, FreeTime eliminated over 500 keystrokes, mouse clicks, and cursor movements when used with athenaOne.
In essence, FreeTime enables staff to prepare for the visit, patients to update their own conditions, and the app itself to do 90% of the work.
Anodyne Clinical Corporation, the brainchild of Dr. DiPoala, is on a mission to improve primary care for thousands of physicians and millions of patients, and FreeTime is at the forefront of that mission.
