The beginning of a new year calls for a fresh start, to evaluate what is working and what isn’t. For large organizations and small practices alike, now is the ideal time to ensure healthcare technologies are in place that can help increase efficiency and improve patient care.
Empowering you to inspire better healthcare
Patient scheduling information and referrals arrive at hospitals from many sources, destined for multiple departments, making it important to adopt a platform that offers advanced search capabilities to help retrieve documents more easily. For example, rather than manually sorting and routing patient referrals arriving via fax, our Intelligent Data Capture (IDC) offering utilizes optical character recognition (OCR), enabling a health system to quickly classify the incoming documents and route them to the correct department for processing.
Healthcare organizations have the opportunity to improve their processes with an enterprise document management system built specifically to address the unique needs of their business, focusing on helping to improve care, providing a better patient experience, and reducing costs. An effective document management system is more than an electronic filing cabinet: it’s a gateway to realizing the inherent potential of the data. The system stores, manages, tracks, and integrates structured and unstructured content, from both the front and back offices, inside and outside of the hospital.
Additionally, our Deep Search functionality facilitates the discovery of structured and unstructured content. With this feature, your organization can immediately benefit from data enrichment, support for multiple data formats, native views of files, conceptual search, and personalization and knowledge management.
Integrating EHR, PM, and RCM for clinicians
For independent clinicians, the right technology can help manage administrative areas and financials, giving them more time to focus on providing care. As we continue to transition to value-based care, more capabilities are required to efficiently manage all of the data. Practices with technology in place can have a competitive advantage to help grow and streamline their business. Integrated solutions can also help with reporting for the Quality Payment Program (QPP), which is driving value-based reimbursement.
While most are using an electronic health record (EHR) to record patient data and care, it is important to ensure you’re using it in the most efficient way possible. Practice management software (PM) can streamline scheduling and billing, enhancing office productivity. Additionally, a revenue cycle management (RCM) service can further assist with billing and accounting tasks, enabling better financial outcomes with denial, rejection, and appeals management. And, perhaps more importantly, it can potentially reduce the time between providing service and receiving payment.
An integrated EHR, PM, and RCM can help organize the clinical, administrative, and financial aspects of your practice. Accurate and reliable interactions with the patient, from the first point of contact, to the office visit, and through medical billing and beyond can greatly improve office efficiency.
By streamlining office workflow, staff can spend more time with patients and less time on administrative tasks. Together, these tools can promote patient loyalty, provider collaboration, and positive outcomes.
