Operating room efficiency. Stat.
Chart building for surgical cases is paper-based in almost every hospital in the US, due to the challenges of transmitting PHI securely and the unique patient records that exist for each provider—surgeon, PCP, hospital, and labs. As a result, your pre-op nursing staff spends valuable time on admin related tasks that should be spent on patient care. This paper chase and hunt for disparate documents that originate outside of the hospital are the leading cause of chart issues that delay on-time surgery starts.
From digital document capture to reporting…and everything in between
eSurgical Chart eliminates delays caused by common chart deficiencies—incomplete, missing, illegible, and expired documents.
The system provides multiple document capture methods—inbound fax and secure email, document scan for hand walked paperwork and HIS report capture of physician orders, History and Physical, third party diagnostic tests, medical necessity documentation, and more.
It creates an electronic patient folder and pre-defines the required documents for each surgery from logic captured in the surgical schedule and business rules—regulatory requirements, physician required, procedure specifics, medical necessity, pre-admit testing consults.
Nursing and support staff have workflow tools to manage chart assembly, readiness, and regulatory compliance of document expiration: dashboards for prioritizing activities, QA of charts, electronic sticky-note messaging.
Reporting metrics enable surgical teams to measure, evaluate, and continuously improve chart assembly, physician satisfaction, and the regulatory compliance areas.
