“We have used the e-AWV on almost 300 patients. It is so much easier than a paper template, and guides my staff through the entire process. I wish EMR’s were this simple. Our patients are happy to receive a full personal health record at the end of the e-AWV and feel they have a better understanding of their health. We have increased our Medicare reimbursement while giving better care to our patients.”Dr. Graham Jones, MD
