We needed a tool that would standardize documentation protocols from one physician to another so that both patient care and charge capture are more consistent.

Summit Healthcare Regional Medical Center (Summit HRMC), a full-service hospital in Show Low, Ariz., that provides comprehensive healthcare services to patients in the eastern and northern regions of the state, has selected Ingenious Med's impower charge capture solution to assist in reaching its documentation, communication and compliance goals.

The hospital recently launched implementation of impower in its hospitalists program, where there has been a demonstrated, critical need for consistent documentation of patient care and improved communication between physicians.

Summit HRMC previously contracted with a firm for inpatient management and later migrated to a web-based patient charge capture software, neither of which were satisfactory solutions, according to COO Doug Gilchrist.

"From a documentation standpoint, we face several challenges that are created simply by the nature of our hospitalists’ program structure," he explained. "We needed a tool that would standardize documentation protocols from one physician to another so that both patient care and charge capture are more consistent."

By implementing Ingenious Med's impower charge capture solution, Summit Healthcare expects to reach the following goals:

  • Collect satisfactory data and track physician productivity
  • Meet or exceed ICD-9 coding compliance
  • Capture patient charges accurately and quickly to eliminate billing delays and rebilling

"We're excited to move away from a system in which we're realizing and correcting mistakes after they happen," stated Gilchrist. "With impower, we'll be able to provide our hospitalists with the resources they need for coding accurately, right at the point of care."
