What Is Lightning MD?

Overview

Lightning MD is an electronic health record (EHR) and practice management platform aimed to offer a user-friendly, secure, and all-inclusive solution to address the current needs of healthcare practices. It allows practitioners to handle patient information, bill for services rendered, and create reports all within a single system.

Lightning MD also features functions such as appointment reminders circulated to patients, online patient portals for protected interaction and access to medical files, e-prescribing options for various medications, and automated tracking of quality measures that can assist providers with fulfilling regulatory compliance standards.

What Is Lightning MD Best For?

Being able to quickly capture all charges during a patient visit is essential for practices. However, static superbill templates often lead to inefficient workflows. Lightning MD's solution stands out with its highly customizable superbill. Users can easily arrange billing codes, diagnoses and other fields on the superbill as needed via a simple drag-and-drop interface. Various templates can be created for different specialties or providers.

Pros thumbs-up

The system is easy to use as compared to many other systems.

Cons thumbs-up

I don’t really have any major issues with the system. It’s just that I don’t like it when things open up in a new window rather than opening in the same window.
