Nick Recker's Mission: Modernizing the Way Private Practices Keep Medical Records
If your doctor still scrawls in notebooks during a medical examination, or your nurse still scribbles on Post-It notes - well, Nick Recker is here to tell you that's all about to change. Recker is founder of Path Forward IT, a Cincinnati-based firm that specializes in converting private practices to Electronic Medical Record systems. "You must know your industry inside and out," Recker advises, "and incorporate that knowledge into the value of your products and services." For Recker, the benefits of his product are myriad. "It can be difficult to determine which EMR product is best to implement in order to satisfy the practice's specific needs and organizational goals," Recker says. From Epic to Allscripts, NextGen to GE Centricity and Greenway, there is a virtual sea of software options to navigate. "We help offices review their entire clinical process in preparation for an EMR implementation," Recker says, "allowing (them) to avoid common stumbling blocks physicians often encounter during EMR implementation." In general, Recker's advice to other entrepreneurs is to challenge yourself and your ideas on a daily basis, to prevent yourself from falling into traps: "Create a diverse advisory team of experienced professionals to review your business plans. Present those ideas to your advisory team as if you were trying to •sell' them on your plans. The exercise of preparing for those meetings will make you more meticulous and assure your plans are sound. "In my opinion, the biggest challenge as an entrepreneur starting a business is being an underdog," Recker concludes. "You must be able to articulate and demonstrate to prospective and current customers why the services or products you provide are better or more valuable than your competition." Nick Recker, Path Forward IT founder and senior consultant Nick has always been a trusted and valuable resource for our IT needs. I have personally worked directly with Nick for more than 10 years and can attest to his honesty and work ethic. We have found Nick to be forthright and honest in all our dealings with him. Nick and his associates have been extremely knowledgeable and professional. Nick works with our core systems team and sets timelines and expectations based on his expertise in EMR/EPM installation and our recommendations. We have had an excellent working relationship with PathForward. Wednesday, December 28, 2011 8:42:56 AM by Anonymous I am a former member of a large single specialty practice. Prior to my departure we worked with Nick and PathForward for several years. Nick comes across as extremely knowledgeable. We contracted with him to handle our IT needs and paid him approximately $50,000 monthly. When I left the practice not quite a year ago, Nick had still not completed the EMR implementation he had started 2 years prior. To the best of my knowledge, Nick never takes responsibility for a single missed deadline. I have spoken to a NextGen implementation specialist and was told that Nick and his team have significantly delayed our implementation.
