North Carolina Dermatology Associates Announces Opening of Paperless Dermatology Office

Opening of paperless dermatology office in Raleigh, NC

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

 
PRLog (Press Release) - Feb. 27, 2009 - North Carolina Dermatology Associates (NCDA) announced its opening at their office located in Brier Creek.  The paperless office will utilize Electronic Health Records (EHR) and advanced technology in each exam room to aid in patient education while promoting healthy skincare regimens.

The EHR will have many benefits including further improving quality of care and reducing medical errors. EHRs will also help improve billing accuracy, reduce duplication of services, facilitate clinical trial and improve access to medical records.  An integrated patient portal will allow patients to access NCDA’s staff electronically through secured messaging technology.

North Carolina Dermatology Associates is one step ahead of President Barack Obama’s proposal that the US health care system implement EHR by 2014.  This goal was reached by his commitment to funding in his stimulus package. Reduction of healthcare cost with implementation of EHR has been proposed since electronic processing has been shown to reduce processing claims by half.

North Carolina Dermatology Associates provides full service dermatology care which includes medical, surgical, and cosmetic services.  NCDA’s medical and surgical services include mole screenings, skin cancer removal,  psoriasis, wart removal, acne evaluation and treatment, rosacea, skin growths, spider vein treatments, and nail and hair conditions.  Cosmetic services include botox, fillers (Restylane and Juvederm), chemical peels, microdermabrasion, laser hair removal, laser skin resurfacing, photodynamic therapy, age spot removal and facial vein treatments.

The NCDA office is located in Alexander Office Park at Brier Creek, 7920 ACC Boulevard, Suite 100 in Raleigh, (919) 596-9600.  Patient appointments are now being scheduled for March.  For more information, visit their website at www.ncdaskin.com.
