Transitioning to electronic medical records was the right decision
New Haven, Connecticut and Cape Girardeau, Missouri (PRWEB) February 27, 2009
Chart Links, a provider of rehabilitation software, announces the implementation of its therapy documentation and scheduling system by a team of 26 physical, occupational and speech therapists and assistants at HealthPoint Rehab, consisting of two outpatient rehabilitation facilities, for Southeast Missouri Hospital. Southeast Missouri Hospital is a 269-bed regional medical complex serving nearly 600,000 people in 21 counties in southeast Missouri and southern Illinois.
The implementation includes functionality for electronic therapy documentation, cross-discipline therapy scheduling, referral and insurance authorization management, charges and more. It also includes an ADT and billing interface to the Meditech hospital information system.
"Transitioning to electronic medical records was the right decision," says Frankie Erlacker, PT, MHS, Executive Director of HealthPoint Rehab. "Southeast chose Chart Links both because it could be customized to meet the unique needs of the department and because of the support Chart Links offered during the building and implementation process. With Chart Links, we will document according to national standards in a way that makes sense to both clinicians and our referral sources. The management staff will be able to more effectively monitor trends and strategize proactively."
Chart Links software streamlines all of the daily tasks associated with a patient's physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech language pathology, or audiology visit. The software manages adult and pediatric therapy treatment by automating evaluations, flow sheets, plans of care, progress notes, patient education, and clinical correspondence. It also manages payer compliance, provider reimbursement, outcomes reporting, administrative functions, business intelligence and enterprise productivity.
