We chose Chart Links due to its adaptability for both inpatient and outpatient therapy documentation
New Haven, Connecticut and Batesville, Indiana (PRWEB) January 26, 2009
Chart Links, a provider of rehabilitation work flow management software, announces the implementation of its therapy documentation and scheduling system by a team of 19 physical, occupational and speech therapists at the Outpatient Rehabilitation Center of Margaret Mary Community Hospital (MMCH), a not-for-profit critical access hospital providing inpatient and outpatient services in Batesville, IN.
The implementation includes functionality for electronic therapy documentation, cross-discipline therapy scheduling, referral and insurance authorization management, charges and more. It also includes inbound admission/discharge/transfer (ADT) and outbound billing and results interfaces to the Meditech hospital information system.
"We chose Chart Links due to its adaptability for both inpatient and outpatient therapy documentation," says Carmen Pride, PT, Manager of Physical Therapy at MMCH and project lead for the system implementation. "As we become experts using the system, the time therapists spend documenting will go down and the quality time therapists spend with patients will go up. That will result in better patient outcomes and increased patient satisfaction levels."
Chart Links software streamlines all of the daily tasks associated with a patient's physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech language pathology, or audiology visit. The software manages adult and pediatric therapy treatment by automating evaluations, flow sheets, plans of care, progress notes, patient education, and clinical correspondence. It also manages payer compliance, provider reimbursement, outcomes reporting, administrative functions, business intelligence and enterprise productivity.
