Although we were on a path to achieving our Meaningful Use goals, our physician group was having difficulty transitioning from paper records and our productivity was taking a hit. We knew we needed help, and Entrada was a life-saver for our group.

Today Entrada published a case study with Palm Beach Orthopaedic Institute (PBOI), a full-service orthopaedic care group practicing at several surgical facilities and hospitals in Palm Beach, FL, discussing the operational and administrative efficiencies achieved after implementing Entrada’s workflow solution into the practice. After a sustained decrease in productivity both during and after its transition from paper to digital records, Palm Beach deployed Entrada to accelerate chart completion by enabling its physicians to continue dictating the narrative sections of their clinical notes, supplemented by administrative staff capturing the structured portion of the note. With the automation provided between Entrada’s workflow solution and the NextGen EPM/EHR system, Palm Beach quickly realized improvements in both physician and staff productivity.

“Although we were on a path to achieving our Meaningful Use goals, our physician group was having difficulty transitioning from paper records and our productivity was taking a hit. We knew we needed help, and Entrada was a life-saver for our group,” notes Brian Bizub, CEO of Palm Beach Orthopaedic Institute.

After introducing Entrada into its practice in April 2011, the physicians at Palm Beach quickly adopted the solution, citing the flexibility and ease-of-use of Entrada’s mobile application and their ability to continue dictating while using the NextGen EHR system. After syncing with NextGen’s Practice Management system to building a daily worklist, the physicians at Palm Beach use their Apple devices to dictate the desired clinical narrative, without the necessity to include any patient demographics or personal identifying information. The dictation is then automatically and securely submitted to Entrada’s data center, where the audio files are first converted to text using voice recognition technology and then edited by an Entrada staff member. The finished work is then automatically inserted into individual narrative text fields within the NextGen EHR templates, via Entrada’s ExpressNote technology.

“Our primary focus is to provide the highest level of patient care, which includes face time with their physician, educating patients and listening to their concerns,” stated Ryan W. Simovitch, M.D., President of PBOI. “With Entrada, the staff is able to spend less time fixing mistakes and more time focusing on patients.”
