Strate­gies to In­crease EHR Adop­tion and Re­duce Tran­scrip­tion Costs

Modern Healthcare - - PERSPECTIVES -

One of the top health sys­tems in the U.S., Ad­vo­cate Illi­nois Ma­sonic Med­i­cal Cen­ter (AIMMC) is a 408bed hos­pi­tal in Chicago with a Level I trauma cen­ter and a Level III Neona­tal In­ten­sive Care Unit, with nearly 900 physi­cians, 300 res­i­dents and 700 nurses us­ing Cerner Mil­len­nium.

When a Joint Com­mis­sion site visit re­vealed in­de­ci­pher­able and in­com­plete doc­u­men­ta­tion in its GI and surgery de­part­ments, AIMMC chose Pow­erNote

, part of the Cerner Mil­len­nium EHR, to fix things. To en­sure rapid and com­pre­hen­sive adop­tion while still main­tain­ing physi­cian sat­is­fac­tion, AIMMC de­ployed Dragon Med­i­cal 360 | Net­work Edi­tion from Nu­ance Health­care.

Dragon Med­i­cal 360 | Net­work Edi­tion is a lead­ing front-end speech recog­ni­tion so­lu­tion for large provider or­ga­ni­za­tions that cre­ates a dra­mat­i­cally im­proved physi­cian ex­pe­ri­ence, sav­ing physi­cians 20 min­utes or more of doc­u­men­ta­tion time per day. Dragon Med­i­cal 360 | Net­work Edi­tion en­ables easy, cen­tral­ized user man­age­ment and en­hanced dic­ta­tion per­for­mance while run­ning an EHR over Citrix.

Or­ga­ni­za­tions can achieve new ef­fi­cien­cies by speech-en­abling their EHRs:

Dic­tate Faster, More Ac­cu­rately Than Ever

Ac­cel­er­ate Clin­i­cian Adop­tion and Ac­cep­tance of EHR Sys­tems

Se­cure Pa­tient In­for­ma­tion

Spend More Time with Pa­tients

Med­i­cal In­for­ma­tion at their Fin­ger­tips

Sup­port Higher Qual­ity and More Com­plete Doc­u­men­ta­tion

At AIMMC, the ben­e­fits of speech recog­ni­tion were po­ten­tially huge: com­plete and uni­ver­sally avail­able elec­tronic pa­tient records, in­creased physi­cian ef­fi­ciency, Mean­ing­ful Use, Joint Com­mis­sion com­pli­ance, and the abil­ity to bill more ac­cu­rately for ser­vices. Upon im­ple­men­ta­tion of Dragon Med­i­cal 360 | Net­work Edi­tion, AIMMC saved more than 70% on out­sourced tran­scrip­tion, re­duced net tran­scrip­tion costs by 50%, and achieved nearly 100% EHR adop­tion.

Dragon Med­i­cal 360 | Net­work Edi­tion is a lead­ing front-end speech recog­ni­tion so­lu­tion for large provider or­ga­ni­za­tions.
