San Diego, CA (PRWEB) September 24, 2013
The 210+ physician Faculty Practice Plan of Howard University (FPP-HU) in Washington, DC, recently partnered with CHMB to guide its Allscripts EHR & PM Transition Project. In addition, FPP-HU has chosen to take full use of CHMB’s Business Intelligence and Analytics solution (CBIA). CHMB has engineered a robust data management system which will provide Howard University access to vital information across its enterprise with a simple touch. Howard will not only receive standard reports, but will also be able to access all system-captured data elements to produce custom reports specific to its operational and analytical needs. They will manage physician and staff workflow, productivity and quality with the CBIA solution. They will also have impactful decision-support information readily accessible from CBIA in order to best prepare for and participate in ACO and evolving business and clinical models.
CBIA pulls from historical data elements collected from numerous healthcare systems and from third party sources across the industry to maximize productivity and profitability and will allow FPP-HU to meet its diverse and complex business intelligence needs. CBIA will provide Howard University executives, CBO and clinical staff the ability to easily generate critical administrative, operational and financial information from a broad overview down to the provider, location, payer or CPT level. Howard University will have the ability to effectively manage its business through daily and annual metrics. In addition, CBIA will provide Howard the freedom to create analytic data with attributes and time frames specific to its needs.
According to CHMB Chief Executive, Bob Svendsen, “By providing the clinicians and executives of Howard with the same data access and analytical tools CHMB enjoys as a leading provider of outsourced RCM services nationally; we are supporting Howard’s important initiatives to enhance its independence and leadership in both providing superior healthcare services to the Greater Washington, DC, community and meeting current healthcare mandates.”
Through ad hoc analytics, unique and specific reports and the ability to efficiently navigate data and monitor productivity, FPP-HU will be able to confidently manage the organization. “In transitioning our professional billing operations and IT platforms, it was important for Howard to deploy best practices tools and resources. Because the powerful software CHMB deploys in delivering its outsourced RCM services offering nationally was available in a subscription-based model, this made all the difference in our selection criteria. We believe this will save us money and also provide us exactly what we are looking for in an analytical and workflow management tool,” said Jeanette Gibbs, chief executive for FPP-HU and associate vice president for administration for Howard University Health Sciences. Gibbs led the selection process for the CHMB CBIA solution.
