DURHAM, N.C.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- To improve system-wide care coordination and physician communication, academic medical centers (AMCs) are increasingly relying on Clairvia’s Physician Scheduler® software as their one, enterprise-capable physician scheduling product.

“Today’s AMCs recognize that delivering quality healthcare requires maintaining quality relationships and providing an integrated way to communicate with its physicians and caregivers,” says Beth Pickard, Clairvia president and chief executive officer. “After all, a recent study, conducted by the Center for Health Information and Decision Systems, estimates U.S. hospitals waste $12 billion a year due to the effects of inadequate or delayed communication.
“An essential first step in ensuring effective communication with physicians begins with a clear understanding of ---- and control over ---- physicians’ often very complex schedules.”
Given the intricacies of the modern healthcare delivery system, “the effective synchronization of provider resources is critical,” says Dale Lucas, manager at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia. “Physician Scheduler is the solution we’re relying on to achieve efficient care coordination.”
