Orthopedic medicine is different from other healthcare specializations. In an orthopedic clinic, you need solutions that are tailored to what you do every day so you don’t have to waste time and mouse clicks!
Phoenix Ortho built its Electronic Health Record (EHR) software solution specifically for orthopedic clinics. We collaborated with orthopedic physicians to design a comprehensive EHR software that removes superfluous data, forms, and actions so orthopedic surgeons can focus on what’s most important to them.
As successful executives in the EHR industry for many years, our principals saw firsthand how most systems were created for primary care. Adapting these one-size-fits-all systems to specialty needs was like trying to fit a square peg into a round hole; it just didn't work. They soon realized that orthopedic practices required an EHR system that would let them reclaim their day.
Rising from the ashes of outdated and dysfunctional primary care EHR systems in 2006, Phoenix Ortho was born. Our mission? To deliver an EHR solution that eliminates clutter and saves time.
Our solution was made specifically for orthopedic practices. Because we understand the intricacies of orthopedic medicine, our EHR software is able to help orthopedic physicians help more patients while eliminating hours of paperwork.
One of our most important core values, aside from “doing right by the customer,” is family. To us, family is important because we’re a family business. We consider our customers a part of our family — and we treat them accordingly. It isn’t just the golden rule of “do unto others as you would have them do unto you,” it’s “treat our customers with the care and consideration we would give our closest relatives.”
In other words: “We’ll be there for you. Just like a good family should be.”
How do we show this care and consideration? A few ways include:
Whether you need assistance understanding government EHR guidelines and healthcare regulations or are just looking for ways to streamline your clinical workflows, we’re here to help!
Have an issue with the Phoenix Ortho EHR system? Is there a feature you wish it had (or you’re unsure how to use)? You can reach out at any time to let us know. We take feedback from our customers seriously.
Our EHR software suite is developed for orthopedic practices. We won’t waste your time with a bunch of irrelevant form fields for other specializations. It’s everything an orthopedic clinic needs, and nothing it doesn’t.
Paul got his start in healthcare in 1971 as a scrub nurse and surgical assistant at Parkland Memorial Hospital in Dallas. He later received a Bachelor of Science from the University of Texas-Arlington and an MBA in Healthcare Administration from the University of Dallas.
His advanced education and background, together with the emergence of HIT technology, led Paul on a long professional journey. He started working in sales for practice management billing software and electronic health records (EHR) in 1988; in 2006, he introduced Phoenix Ortho, the first orthopedic-specific EHR platform.
Phoenix Ortho is an innovative solution rooted in improving efficiency and effectiveness within the orthopedic field. It has made a difference for more than 1,000 providers in 44 states.
From the very beginning, family has played an important role in Phoenix Ortho's success. Paul's son, Monty – a talented web designer and graphic artist in his own right – initially proposed the development of an orthopedic-specific EHR.
At the time, Monty and Paul were both working on the graphical user interface at NextGen, with Monty acting as a contract programmer and later assisting with deployment, implementation, and troubleshooting.
The father-son duo pooled their life savings to create a prototype with help from a contract programmer. It was Monty's youthful optimism and the developmental tools at the pair's disposal that set Phoenix Ortho on its current path of success. Monty's prolific and accomplished career as a programmer and overall leader has led him to more than 10 years of experience with Phoenix Ortho, where he holds the title of principal, but the pride of a developer.
Micah began his IT career in 1998 as a computer technician. That initial foray evolved into management and consulting roles around the Dallas/Fort Worth metro area, including one with Phoenix Ortho. Micah took on a leadership position after his first interaction with the company and was deeply involved in its early strategy and technology.
He turned a consulting job into a full-time role and now oversees general operations, including the support and training departments as well as Phoenix Ortho's actual technology. Micah exemplifies the family-oriented nature of Phoenix Ortho’s company values in his respect for the team and strong relationships with employees, customers, vendors, and partners.
