TUCSON, AZ (PRWEB) December 11, 2003
iAtrogenix, a company that provides secure communication solutions, has completed an agreement with Carondelet Health Network, a member of Ascension Health, in Tucson to provide its Referral Management System (RMS), to community physicians as a key component in expanding CarondeletÂs market reach. Carondelet has been utilizing the system with Carondelet Medical group for the past 9 months and is now expanding its use to other community physicians.
By utilizing iAtrogenixÂs RMS, referring physicians are able to submit scheduling requests electronically and submit all the patient information instantaneously rather than waiting on the phone or using FAX machines. The office is instantly notified as soon as the patient is scheduled or if the patient does not show for their appointment. This added convenience and close communication provides Carondelet with an edge and keeps the referring office in the loop and well informed.
IatrogenixÂs aim is to use their technology to make the work process more productive. Demand for MRIÂs and other imaging services is high and Carondelet wants to utilize their capability to serve as many people as possible and get the feedback from these procedures more quickly. Rose Quiroga, Carondelet Imaging Center Marketing Analyst, said, Â We are always looking to help our medical staff and our referring physicians, as well as the patients. Any product that makes life easier for them is definitely something we are interested in.Â Using the iAtrogenix RMS for scheduling has eliminated lost faxes, illegible fax forms and has increased security of archived documents.
Because RMS is so simple to implement, learn and use, the imaging center can reach HIPAA compliance without disrupting its current level of quality care.
The RMS also provides other modules to help build relationships with referring physicians in a HIPAA compliant environment:
-Electronic Report Distribution
-Electronic HIPAA compliant pre-authorizations
-Encrypted Instant Messaging
-Physician Relationship Reports
