eHealth Global Technologies, Inc. (eHGT) continues to make the process of integrating outside medical records and imaging into referral patient workflow more cost effective and efficient, while improving the coordination of care for all patients transitioning to a new facility. eHealth Access Referral Management System is designed to electronically manage patient referrals and the new patient intake process. It is a value-added capability that enhances existing EMR and scheduling systems.
This system enables electronic and web-based management of new patient referrals, while seamlessly integrating referred patient information into hospital scheduling systems. eHealth Access Referral Management System leverages a unified environment for managing fax, phone, or electronic orders, while managing all related patient documents and images in a patient-centric easy-to-use web interface. Workflow is built in, and allows for easy collaboration on new patient referrals for the entire care team.
eHealth Access Referral Management System saves valuable staff time and greatly reduces the potential of manual entry errors by eliminating the need to manually input patient information into various hospital systems, in addition to converting a paper-based process to an electronic one. Imagine no more paper faxes! Integration with internal scheduling and Electronic Medical Record (EMR) systems further reduces cost, increases staff efficiency, and allows for quicker turnaround for patient appointments.
Real-time management reports provide insight into who is referring patients, plus the value of each referral, leading to more effective marketing. eHealth Access Referral Management System enables the care team to: automatically route reports, information, status updates and send confirmations to the referring physician. These can be accessed online or via fax, cutting staff time and dramatically improving service to these physicians.
This exciting innovation is currently in beta, and should be released for general availability in Q1 of 2012. eHGT is working directly with customers in multiple clinical specialties, including oncology and transplant, to ensure that the system meets the workflow needs of a variety of clinical departments.
“We are excited to announce another innovative service to our eHealth Access Record Retrieval Service. eHGT’s Referral Management System will provide transparency and visibility to the referral process for all stakeholders, reducing questions, inefficiencies, errors, and allowing the care team more time to focus on their patients instead of performing non-value-added activities like record collection,” states Michael Margiotta, chief executive officer of eHGT.
