Southbury, CT (PRWEB) December 05, 2013
Catholic Health Initiatives (CHI), a national nonprofit health system, has added the PDS Patient Access Dashboard (PAD) to the PDS PRISM Analytics suite of products already in place across multiple practice management systems nationwide.
PAD will enable CHI to gain greater insight into patient access in order to improve staffing allocation, scheduling decisions, and enhance patient access capacity. It provides a comprehensive scheduling dashboard and analytics without the need for complex data staging.
“We wanted to standardize data coming from multiple practice-management systems and channel it into a single report that could be distributed to multiple stakeholders in a timely manner,” says Bill Mowle, Director of Finance Management Systems for CHI. CHI implemented the dashboard in April 2013 PAD has already been incorporated into CHI’s Allscripts and EPIC environments.
Russell Hendrickson, President of PDS, explains, “We put PAD in place to provide CHI with basic staging of scheduling data – real data, not theoretical. From here, we can work on advanced methods and more complex solutions that will enable CHI to further improve patient access."
