Eliminating Slow Patient Check-in and Waiting

Eliminating Slow Patient Check-in and Waiting

One of the highly frustrating experiences that patients encounter—and that fosters a bad impression—is a slow patient check-in for a scheduled appointment. Savance Health can expedite this process, and thereby improve patient satisfaction (which is a key factor in continued provider inclusion on the part of insurance carriers). According to a fact-sheet on "Older Persons' Health" of the Centers for Disease Control, there were 298 million outpatient visits in 2010 by persons age 65 and up—precisely those who have the least capacity to cope with a slow patient check-in and/or long wait time for healthcare. Likewise, toddlers can become irritable in waiting rooms, and act disruptively.

Reimbursement and the Affordable Care Act

By host on 10/23/2013 8:50 AM
Affordable Health Care Act

If you are a physician in your own practice or in a hospital—or allied health professional (e.g., nurse practitioner or registered dietician) —you are aware of the need to track and monitor your patients efficiently.  Preventive care has been expanded by the enactment of the Affordable Care Act, a.k.a Obama Care, and millions of people are expected to join the ranks of the insured—which means you may experience an increase in patient visits.  Expanded preventive health insurance coverage includes annual “well women” visits, mammograms, cervical cancer screening, human papilloma virus testing, and testing for anemia and gestational diabetes in pregnant women.  The Savance Health patient tracker can enable you to absorb changes resulting from an increase in patients, health care visits and reimbursements.

Hospital Reputation and Patient Discharge Etiquette

Patient Tracking and Colonoscopy Procedures

In the United States, more than ten million people undergo a colonoscopy each year, according to a New York Times article on June 1, 2013. Most hospitals require colonoscopy patients to provide assurance that someone will escort them home following the procedure. Spouses may rush from work on an hour break to pick up their loved one, only to discover that the administrative staff are unsure of the exact whereabouts of the patient—which can lead to a bad impression. This is preventable with Savance Health's patient tracking software.

 

The Ease of Touch Screen Technology

By host on 4/7/2013 1:43 PM

Patients have a social security number, they will have a patient number, file number and any associated insurance will then know them by a different numerical system. This is why there has been such a need for mountains and mountains of paperwork. Many times, it’s simply to verify who the patient really is. Touch screen patient sign-in and registration does away with all of the needless repetitive paperwork and can significantly cut down on wait times.

Changes in RFID and Patient Information Security that Affect Your Health Care Business

By host on 3/31/2013 10:12 PM
The Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) was enacted to keep patients’ private information safe and most facilities are concerned with providing the privacy of their patients according to the requirements within the act. A Radio-frequency identification (RFID) tag has become the simplest solution for protecting large volumes of information received through patient registration. Many facilities and health care providers have learned that human error makes it nearly impossible to protect the information completely and that any mistakes that are made are likely to be expensive ones.

The first HIPAA breach settlement occurred on January 3, 2013 when a small healthcare facility was fined $50,000 for a breach of security. While these guidelines are strict, they are also important for protecting the patient as well as your health care facility. As technology continues to grow, the regulations for keeping patient information safe are expected to become even stricter with stiffer penalties for violations. It is important for healthcare facilities to take advantage of technology to provide the utmost security for their patients’ information starting with a registration management system that prevents the breach of information that can occur when paper files or computers are left unattended.

Mandatory Requirements for Tracking Surgical Equipment

By host on 3/27/2013 2:07 PM
Beginning in 2014, hospitals will be required by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to implement the Unique Device Identification (UDI) system. Each surgical instrument will by identified by a unique identifier from the manufacturer in readable text form, including the use of a RFID tag or bar code. This will allow for each healthcare facility to account for each piece of equipment regardless of where it is located on the premises. Choosing the right tracking system will help ensure you are compliant.
