​Quality care Hobbled by Bad technology
The North Texas Heart Center (NTHC) opened its doors in the late ‘70s and it’s one of the oldest cardiac practices in the Dallas area. Today it employs 14 physicians and 60 staff in three offices, with inpatient consultative and procedural services available at local major hospitals. The doctors do not perform surgery but offer consultation, angioplasty, stress testing, echocardiography, electrophysiology, nuclear cardiology and other cardiac care. As a medical practice, NTHC prides itself on high quality of care through expertise and state of the art technology and treatment.
The results are undeniable:
  • Financial reports produced in 30 seconds, not a week
  • Entire office going paperless
  • Practice on track to earn Meaningful Use incentives
  • 13% decrease in days in accounts receivable
