We have seen noticeable improvements in our practice efficiency. Having all our SOPs accessible at our fingertips is better for our patients and better for our staff. Zavanta has saved us time, improved accuracy and reduced stress for our staff."
Saint Louis, Missouri (PRWEB) May 04, 2015
Bluegrass Community Family Practice is a primary physician and urgent care facility located in Bardstown, Kentucky that provides services to several surrounding counties. Like many clinics and primary care practices across the country, Bluegrass Community Family Practice, headed by Dr. Brian Sosnin, experienced a significant increase in patients accessing their services since the Affordable Care Act was enacted. As part of their commitment to providing high-quality and compassionate medical services to their communities, Dr. Sosnin and his staff started a “Culture of Excellence” initiative and sought out innovative solutions to help them better address the challenges they face in their practice on a daily basis. As part of that initiative, they began using Zavanta SOP software from COMPROSE, Inc to capture, manage and share polices, standard operating procedures (SOPs) and best practices for all aspects of their busy practice.
Dr. Sosnin and his staff told their story in a recent case study interview with COMPROSE Marketing and described how Zavanta software has been instrumental in helping them meet their goals of excellent patient care and consistent, smooth day-to-day operations:
Q. How has Zavanta supported your "Culture of Excellence?"
“Zavanta gave us the framework to easily capture our SOPs for daily operations, practice management and Human Resources. Everything is now in one central location, in a form that is clear, easy to find, neatly laid out and user friendly. Having all our standard operating procedures (SOPs) accessible at our fingertips is better for our patients and better for our staff. Zavanta has saved us time, improved accuracy and confidence, and reduced stress for our 7 staff members. ”
Q. Has your SOP system helped with staff training or job sharing?
"Since the advent of the Affordable Care Act, we have seen a significant increase in patients accessing our care and that has increased our need for process streamlining and efficiency in our practice to keep up. With our Zavanta SOPs now in place, we can share responsibilities among our office staff to fill in when patient load is highest and to cover for staff members who are out due to illness or vacation. For example, if someone needs to step in to perform a task in the lab that isn’t her regular assignment, she can pull up the exact protocol for the task from our Zavanta system and follow it. Handling staff turnover is another benefit of our Zavanta SOP system. Not only can we share responsibilities among our experienced staff, but we can train new staff members and get them productive much more quickly because they can easily look up SOPs on any task and know what to do."
Q. What about day-to-day operations?
"We’ve seen noticeable improvements in our practice efficiency as well. For example, we now have all the steps for Patient Checkout clearly mapped out so nothing gets overlooked. If a patient needs imaging or other follow-up tests, we can ensure that all the diagnostic codes, referrals and instructions are in order at checkout—saving time for the patient and eliminating oversights. Because we have everything mapped out and everyone understands the work flow, we spend less time fighting “fires” and daily problem-solving and can focus on continually improving our processes and fulfilling our core mission of bringing a higher standard of care to the patients we serve. We consider our Zavanta SOP software system to be an integral part of our Culture of Excellence.”
