New York, NY (PRWEB) April 29, 2009
Meta Health Technology, a leading provider of health information management software solutions, announced today that South Nassau Communities Hospital has implemented Meta's Electronic Physician Query software.
According to Elizabeth Carnevale, South Nassau's Assistant Vice President, Revenue Cycle, "There were two key reasons why we chose Meta's Electronic Physician Query software. First, it enhances communication and workflow for our physicians. The product is integrated with our current Meta applications for chart abstracting and electronic signature, so that when our physicians log on to PowerSign, they can also see and respond to their queries. The software also sends email directly to physicians alerting them that they have a query. When a query is sent, the portion of the chart that's being referenced can be scanned and attached, so the physician can review all the relevant information without having to come to the HIM department.
Second -- but just as important -- the product has excellent reporting capabilities. We can track queries by physician, by type of query and by DRG, and we can monitor physician response rates. The software also enables us to monitor reimbursement so that we can calculate our return on investment."
"We are delighted to be expanding our relationship with South Nassau," says Eli Nahmias, President and CEO of Meta. "By selecting Electronic Physician Query, the hospital will enhance their efficiencies and physician relations. It's exciting for Meta to work with South Nassau's dynamic management team. We look forward to receiving their feedback and ideas as they use the software, so that we can continue to improve a product that has already produced great results for our clients."
