24x7, Real-Time Admission Review Process Solves ED Case Manager Coverage Issues, Fortifies Hospital RAC Compliance and Helps the Bottom Line
LIVINGSTON, N.J.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- EDIMS, provider of electronic medical record (EMR) solutions specifically for emergency departments (EDs), announced its new interface capability with Proven Healthcare Solutions (PHS), a state-of-the-art provider of real-time medical necessity admission review services for ED patients.
EDIMS’s clients will now be able to seamlessly access PHS’s real-time admission review service through their EDIMS main grid. “As one of the country’s first and most comprehensive emergency department-specific EMRs, EDIMS, which is used in hospitals nationwide, was a natural choice for our first EDIS interface. Its long-term history of proven clinical, operational and financial success and high customer satisfaction in some of the country’s top-tier hospitals and health systems, coupled with its outstanding commitment to exceptional customer service, made our decision to select EDIMS an obvious one,” states Scott Serbin, Director of Marketing for PHS.
Featuring the industry’s only 30-minute guarantee, PHS’s innovative approach provides hospitals with a cost-effective solution for 24X7 coverage of ED admission reviews. The need for reliable and consistent real-time review services has only increased with the growing complexity of payer requirements. Using the latest Milliman and InterQual evidence-based care guidelines, PHS’s experienced reviewers provide a recommendation as to whether the patient meets criteria for admission, observation or discharge. The response is then sent back electronically to the ED via EDIMS.
“At EDIMS, we are always striving to find solutions that will complement clinicians’ workflow, improve patient care, and enhance hospitals’ financial outcomes. PHS’s solution addresses all of these by improving ED patient throughput, reducing denials for inappropriate admissions, and ensuring compliance through the appropriate assignment of patients,” said Shane Hade, CEO of EDIMS.
