During the week of May 6-12, Epiphany Healthcare would like to join the American Nurses Association (ANA) and many other organizations across the United States in observance of National Nurses Week 2019. Please join us in recognition of our 4 million registered nurses, as they dedicate themselves year round to the promotion and maintenance of our nation’s health.

Why Observe National Nurses Week?

  • Raise public awareness about the tremendous role that nurses play in the maintenance and improvement of American healthcare. We all know that nurses work diligently to provide us with superior care in hospitals, schools, and other healthcare facilities, but many may not see the important contributions nurses make as volunteers, researchers, educators, and advocates for a better healthcare system.
  • Nurses make up the largest of all healthcare professions and the profession is growing, in both number and in its capacity for leadership and responsibility as changes to the healthcare system allow nurses the opportunity to utilize more of their education and training than ever before.
  • Nurses are the most trusted professionals in America according to a national Gallup poll. The 2018 poll marks the seventeenth consecutive year that nurses have topped the list of trustworthy and ethical professionals.

How to Observe National Nurses Week

  • Know important dates associated with National Nurses Week to plan events accordingly, publish appropriate materials, or recognize individuals in a personal setting.
    • National Nurses Week begins on May 6th of every year and culminates on May 12th, coinciding with Florence Nightingale’s birthday.
    • May 8th of every year is recognized as National Student Nurses Day.
  • Plan an event in your community or workplace. Some possibilities include:
    • Host a celebration of current or retired nurses in your community.
    • Organize/sponsor a community wide contest that focuses on recognition of a nurse or nurses within the community.
    • Hold a fundraiser and donate the funds to a local charity in the name of a local nurse, group of nurses, or National Nurse Week.
    • Spread the word via press release, blog, advertisement, or any way that can make more people aware of National Nurse Week.
    • Show your appreciation by personally thanking nurses for all that they do. No matter who it may be, just let them know that you appreciate them. They will likely appreciate the recognition.
At Epiphany Healthcare, we understand the important role that nurses play in our nation’s healthcare system and we want to take this opportunity to thank them for their service. Our goal is to use our technology and service to help improve patient care just as nurses around the country and the world do every day.We thank you again, Happy National Nurses Week!

Patient Monitoring Workflow Streamlined With Epiphany’s New Rhythm Strip Management Solution

Posted by Allison Fawber on August 23, 2018 at 9:56 AM

If you scan rhythm strips into your EMR, you know this is a labor-intensive and costly process. Epiphany now offers the ability to automatically store rhythm strips from your central monitoring station in your EMR.

Rhythm_Strips_trash.pngEpiphany’s Rhythm Strip Management solution (RSM) takes rhythm-strip data in PDF format from the Philips Information Center (PIIC and PIIC iX) and automatically transfers the rhythm strips to the EMR as an unsolicited HL7 result. This is an elegant solution for the end user, considering the number of problems it solves for a hospital’s rhythm strip management workflow. 

At many hospitals, rhythm strip management workflow looks like this:

RNs and monitoring techs have to manually print, cut, and paste the rhythm strips; they often hand write a validation signature on those strips. Rhythm strips then have to be copied and scanned so that they can be viewed in the EMR. For those using a telemetry cockpit, complex workflows exist due to the volume of patients that are being monitored.

Epiphany’s RSM solution:

With Epiphany’s RSM, no more printing, pasting, or scanning is necessary. The costs associated with scanning and paper (thermal strip chart recorder or 8.5 x 11) are eliminated. The RN strip–validation process can occur in the EMR or in Epiphany. The rhythm strips are automatically transferred and quickly available in the EMR.  Epiphany’s RSM supports an unlimited number of rhythm strips per patient. Overall, after implementing Epiphany’s RSM, workflow is faster, accurate, and more efficient.

Ask for more information about this product and an Epiphany representative will contact you to discuss your rhythm strip management needs and review next steps.

More and More Doctors are Using Mobile Smart Devices

Posted by Allison Fawber on July 11, 2018 at 3:13 PM

Epiphany's Cardio Server MobilePictured above: NEW Cardio Server Mobile

Here’s What This Means for the Healthcare Industry

In the healthcare industry, a large selection of applications for mobile smart devices are now available and increased usage of these devices is transforming the practice of medicine. These tools help doctors and nurses perform important tasks and are used in many areas, such as health record maintenance, patient management and monitoring, decision-making, and communication with patients and colleagues.

Mobile devices and iOS apps benefit healthcare practitioners by giving them increased access to tools and helping them make better clinical decisions that improve patient outcomes. Here are some recent findings on the increasing use of mobile smart devices among medical practitioners and what this trend means for the future of healthcare.

Growing Use of Mobile Smart Devices in Healthcare

The use of mobile smart devices in the healthcare industry has grown dramatically in recent years. A 2016 Spok survey found that 63% of organizations have a plan for mobile devices, which is a 34% increase from 2012.

The survey also found that 78% of participants intend to use mobile devices for doctor-to-doctor communication and 74% said they would use mobile devices for nurse-to-doctor communication and test results management. In addition, 78% of hospitals surveyed indicated that they supported smartphone usage. The study also revealed that the top three systems being accessed by mobile devices are electronic medical records (EMR), directory lookup, and drug reference.

Benefits of Mobile Healthcare

There are many ways that mobile usage is transforming the healthcare industry. Here are some of the major benefits of mobile healthcare:

  • Allows for remote viewing of test results
    Specialized iOS tools can be used to remotely view diagnostic tests. With these tools, medical practitioners can access test results from anywhere. This gives them the opportunity to read the tests sooner and get results to their patients faster. With these apps, doctors can also store studies and share them with their colleagues when necessary. In many cases, viewing test results on mobile devices is just as effective as viewing them at a standard workstation.
  • Increased workflow efficiency
    The use of mobile applications increases workflow efficiency by automating much of the paperwork and reducing clerical errors in recording patient history. This automation decreases the risk of misplaced files and records. There are also apps that assist with data collection and entering patient information into an EMR. They provide secure access to patient information like medical history, test results, and scans. Doctors can easily access patient information on their devices from anywhere, which can save crucial time in a medical emergency.
  • Improves communication between doctors and nurses
    Recent studies have shown the use of mobile devices improves communication between doctors and nurses in medical wards. The devices provide a variety of ways to communicate, such as texting, phone calls, and video conferences and helps doctors to respond to emails more quickly.  In another survey, over 80% of participants said they used mobile devices to communicate with their colleagues about patient care and found texting to be more efficient than phone calls or in-person meetings. Most importantly, using mobile devices to communicate also saves time in emergency situations, which can save lives.
  • Assists communication between doctors and patients
    The growing use of mobile devices in healthcare allows for more real-time communication between doctors and patients inside and outside of a hospital or medical office. This makes it easier for patients to get in touch with their doctors if they have a question or concern and for doctors to check in with patients about their treatment. Patients who believe their doctors are truly invested in their care are more engaged and more engaged patients are more likely to follow their doctor’s care plan, take medications, and incorporate healthy practices.
  • Allows for direct patient monitoring
    Mobile devices are increasingly being used to directly monitor patients with many chronic diseases. iOS devices can be used to take patient vitals, which allows data to be gathered electronically.  This can reduce the need for office visits and provides a way for doctors to monitor patients with chronic conditions such as diabetes, Alzheimer’s, and heart disease from anywhere.

How Mobile Smart Devices Are Transforming Healthcare

One of the main advantages of mobile smart devices is they allow doctors to check in on their patients anytime. These devices increase efficiency in healthcare settings, which can save lives in emergencies. Epiphany’s Cardio Server Mobile is one iOS application that is transforming healthcare by allowing doctors to access ECG data remotely. This means that a patient who has an ECG in an ambulance can have the results sent directly to their cardiologist’s mobile device. By viewing the test results immediately on an iPhone, the doctor can make a diagnosis and have the Cath Lab prepare for the necessary procedure before the patient arrives at the hospital. This saves critical time in a cardiac emergency and dramatically increases a patient’s chance of survival.  

Cardio Server Mobile is optimized for iOS smart devices, which makes it extremely responsive and easy for a doctor to use. It is also a secure-data application and no patient data is left on the device after the doctor finishes with the test results.

Another cutting-edge iOS app is Kardia by AliveCor, which allows a patient to record a single-lead electrocardiogram using the KardiaMobile device with a smartphone or the KardiaBand with the Apple Watch. After taking the ECG, AliveCor’s algorithm’s will tell the patient if they are in atrial fibrillation. The patient can send the results directly to a cardiologist or a cloud-based platform and save the information in the patient’s records. This allows the cardiologist to quickly detect an arrhythmia, which can cause sudden cardiac death if untreated. AliveCor allows an arrhythmia patient to get treatment immediately, which can save lives.

Epiphany added over 100 devices to our compatibility list in 2017, including this device. When launched, this integration will make it possible for patients to transmit ECGs taken from the Kardia device and have them available in Cardio Server for a cardiologist to compare with previous studies.

The use of mobile smart devices and apps in medical settings continues to grow. An increasing number of doctors and medical professionals are making use of smartphone technology to view test results and to communicate more efficiently with colleagues and patients. A vast selection of apps for mobile smart devices are being developed and refined, which will continue to transform the future of healthcare.

7 Reasons Why Adding Sites to Your Cardio Server System is a Good Idea

Posted by Allison Fawber on January 24, 2018 at 2:58 PM

Sites_onmap.jpg

Managing a multiple-hospital, enterprise-wide IT infrastructure is challenging. Epiphany offers broad flexibility to hospitals in this situation. 

Hospital groups usually have legacy devices from multiple manufacturers and want to avoid the expense of replacing these products. Epiphany is compatible with 260 devices from over 80 manufacturers supporting 23 diagnostic modalities, so you can leverage your existing devices, workflow, and infrastructure.

I'd Love a Demonstration!


Our customers have shared that in multiple-site systems, each hospital needs to be able to define its own workflow. Epiphany supports the ability to adjust Cardio Server to fit different workflow preferences for each site in a multiple-hospital implementation. Examples include:

  1. Epiphany migrates data from your legacy management systems and uses that data to provide serial comparison reports on diagnostic test results from different manufacturer‘s devices.
  2. HL7 messages, including order updates, preliminary results, image updates, final results, and billing messages, are transferred between multiple applications. For example, Cardio Server supports customized results for Epic, Cerner, Meditech, McKesson, and all other major EMR vendors.
  3. It is common in multiple-site hospital systems for patients to have different patient IDs from different sites. Cardio Server identifies a patient's previous studies, even if they were performed with a different patient ID in another site, by using patient name and date of study and other unique identifiers of your choice.
  4. Cardio Server can be configured to not require order linkage for outpatient and clinics studies, but to require orders for inpatient procedures. With our system, you can add not only your hospitals but your clinics and physician practices as well.
  5. Some physicians confirm studies within the exercise stress application. Epiphany enables those stress studies coming from the hospital/clinic to be received as “confirmed” and pass onto the EMR while allowing physicians at the other sites to confirm using Cardio Server.
  6. For university hospital systems, Epiphany has a workflow for cardiology fellows. The cardiology fellows receive a “usertype” unique to them that does not contain the ECG’s preliminary interpretation from the cardiograph. In this way, they are able to provide an unbiased interpretation before the reading MD confirms their work on the study. There is an additional option of a “training” version of Cardio Server, which strips interpretations from the ECGs, de-identifies patient information, and creates an archive of ECG training files for future use.
  7. Multiple time zones are supported for enterprises that extend beyond a single time zone.

Epiphany values feedback from our customers. Listening and learning from our customers has allowed us to be active, adapt, and expand the functionality of our products to be flexible in supporting multiple-site enterprises.

How Epiphany Resolved an Enterprise Hospital’s Billing & Order Completion Issue

Posted by Allison Fawber on December 5, 2017 at 2:08 PM

An enterprise hospital using Cardio Server in Alabama contacted us to look for a way to improve their ECG billing workflow.

OPPORTUNITY FOR IMPROVEMENT

For ECG interpretations, there are two bill types: technical and professional. In this particular hospital’s case, the staff would manually change the study status in the EMR to generate the technical component of the bill.  

Of course, if any part of an organization’s workflow is manual, there is always a chance of inconsistency or clerical errors. At times, their manual process led to the hospital not billing the technical fee for performing an ECG. The hospital was losing revenue because, in their EMR, the trigger for dropping the technical charge required that the order status needed to change. In their previous workflow, this was a manual entry, it did not change automatically, and, therefore, the technical bill occasionally was not dropped. The hospital staff realized there was room for improvement and asked Epiphany if there was a way to automate this process. Epiphany’s answer was “absolutely.”

results.png


RESOLUTION

Epiphany now sends an order-status update message from Cardio Server automatically when the study is promoted to Unconfirmed. When Cardio Server sends the automatic update, the EMR changes the order status, which triggers the bill for the technical charge.

Patricia Brewer, an Epiphany Project Manager who worked with the hospital on the implementation, adds, “We are passionate about solving our customer’s problems here at Epiphany and this workflow fix is one of the many things we can do with Cardio Server’s flexibility to better the customer’s use and appreciation of our product.”

The resolution in Cardio Server for this hospital’s problem is not an uncommon request. This type of workflow improvement is what we at Epiphany work to achieve daily. When you calculate the time spent manually entering status change, in addition to lost revenue, automating the process with the help of Cardio Server and your EMR is substantial. If your EMR is able to accept an order-status update message, we can leverage that information to customize your Cardio Server configuration.

As Security is of Utmost Importance to Healthcare IT Professionals, Epiphany Remains Vigilant

Posted by Allison Fawber on September 20, 2017 at 10:44 AM

The U.S. Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA) defined national standards to ensure the privacy of patients’ medical records and personal health information.

Healthcare Data Security

IT_hero.png

In August 2017, the HIPAA Journal cited measurable breaches in data security for the healthcare industry. Some of the findings revealed:

[B]etween January and June 2017, there have been 233 reported data breaches. Those breaches. . . impacted 3,159,236 patients. The largest reported breach in the first half of the year resulted in the theft of 697,800 records and was caused by a rogue insider, 1 of 96 incidents involving insiders. Out of those 96 incidents, 57 were due to insider error (423,000 records) and 36 incidents due to insider wrongdoing (743,665 records).

This disturbing data implies outside/hacker breaches are less of a threat than non-compliant behavior by your own employees.

Minimizing Risk: Healthcare Security Data Breaches

It is up to your organization’s IT staff to minimize security risks involving equipment that utilizes the latest technology, which includes mobile and off-site access to patient data (such as cardiology and pulmonary diagnostic test results). Epiphany’s engineering team has tested our application and put processes in place to prevent healthcare security data breaches.

What You Can Do

  • Apply data encryption to active and inactive data.
  • Control and monitor all log-ins; train users to log-off when not using applications.
    • Epiphany’s Cardio Server has a customizable, automatic log-off feature to protect PHI.
  • Educate employees and make them active participants in your program to reduce security breaches.
    • Regular training and awareness regarding security are good, constant reminders to keep guards up and maintain skepticism towards phishing scams (emails or phone calls requesting suspicious information).
  • Deploy applications that provide comprehensive HIPAA logs.
  • Put firewalls in place to control employees’ access to at-risk websites.
  • Use secure application program interface (API) technology with authentication and encryption; all points of entry into the system should be tested and documented.
  • Offer secure, remote access to information for physicians.
  • Enable secure, single sign-on using Active Directory.

Epiphany and its products align with best practices for today’s security standards. Read our Information Technology FAQs to learn more about ways we can work together to minimize healthcare security breaches.

Consider the Profound Impact of Bidirectional Communication on Healthcare

Posted by Allison Fawber on June 27, 2017 at 1:30 PM

If speed and efficiency are the name of the game, what is the winning combination? Bidirectional communication.

bidirectional communication.png

Bidirectional communication is the ability to send information in both directions, from the EMR to the acquisition device and back. Within the healthcare industry, this exchange between electronic systems and technology devices positively impacts the quality of care.

Information and Communication Technology: How it Works

Information and Communication Technology (ICT) in healthcare raises the quality of patient care because its platform is more patient-centered. ICT also puts information in the hands of the medical professionals when they need it most—immediately.

  • Patient records – Paper-based systems become bulky and disorganized with storage spaces that are overfilled and difficult to navigate. Computerized record-keeping starts at the admissions desk and continues through discharge. It keeps subsequent admissions and patient care data in an electronic file.
  • Modality worklists – Patient data can be transferred between the hospital’s EMR and the electronic device.

ICT Reduces Errors and Saves Time

When patient information is available anytime/anywhere, there is no need for manual data entry, thus reducing human errors.

  • Orders can be directed to a specific cart or location and then downloaded by a user.
  • Communication can be protected by Secure Sockets Layer (SSL).
  • Duplicate data – Different medical professionals entering the same data, over and over, increases the risk to patient confidentiality and wastes valuable time.

Bidirectional Communication for Greater Efficiency

Patients’ healthcare is compromised when their medical-information management is less than optimal. If your hospital has been postponing the addition of ICT, you’re losing time when you could be implementing changes that will save time.

Progress means interoperability and interoperability means efficiency. Epiphany has implemented communications technology that reduces time and duplicated efforts with its Cardio Server platform; a major advantage for physicians as they can access data 24/7 from remote locations to better manage patient care. And as a benefit for technicians, modality worklists prevent human error from manual data entry. Worklists allow for bi-directional communication with cardiographs, stress, Holter, PFT devices, and more.

How IT Advancements Such as ECG Management Enhance Healthcare Communication

Posted by Allison Fawber on June 21, 2017 at 7:07 AM

 

All industry sectors work hard to keep up with a constant onslaught of technological advancements. In healthcare, technology innovation has led to some miraculous discoveries; indeed, the industry barely resembles what was perceived as cutting-edge care only a few decades ago.

Of course, the advancements that generate the most buzz are directly related to patient diagnostics and treatment. New drugs, imaging technologies, or surgical devices often make international news. But on the inside, for the medical personnel that move mountains to provide best-in-class patient care every day, innovation in healthcare communication is perhaps even more revolutionary.

Software Has Changed the Way We Communicate

Healthcare_IT_Communication

In the modern hospital, communication platforms are the most-accessed, most universally necessary, and arguably most important infrastructural elements. No number of high-tech surgical devices or fantastically skilled staff members can solve modern medical problems if they can’t talk to each other. That communication needs to be fast, reliable, secure, and comprehensive.

Cardio Server, Epiphany’s web-based ECG management software, is hardware independent, which means that your network, your servers, and your domains remain untouched. The application gives healthcare providers access to instant communication regardless of time, distance, or device. And, since we are compatible with over one hundred devices from a variety of vendors, Cardio Server helps your organization become more interoperable.

 “Effectiveness” is Measurable

Using metrics to help determine what makes communication “effective” takes the guesswork out of software upgrades and allows hospitals to quickly see the value in healthcare-technology advancements. How long does it take to access ECG data and how many individuals access that day each day, each month, and each year? How is that data entered and how long does it take to enter? Is data entered once or multiple times? To determine whether your ECG communication is effective, first answer these questions; then consider whether there is room for improvement. What about cost savings based on wasted resources? How often is data keyed inaccurately? How often is data lost entirely? Epiphany has tools in place to offer you a free workflow analysis, which allows you to analyze your processes to see where improvements might be necessary.

Additionally, Cardio Server’s platform contains an extensive reporting package that allows you to analyze your data. The report functionality can help with administrative needs, billing needs, or help determine workflow efficiency.

Cost is Practical

When a healthcare organization can leverage its current devices and infrastructure and use one software program to manage all of their different diagnostic modality tests, the result is outstanding financial return on investment.

ECG management has been available in the industry for over thirty­‐five years. Until now, it has been both expensive and limited to certain acquisition devices. Implementing ECG management generates significant clinical benefits for patients and dramatic cost savings for your facility. 

Patients receive better care when ECG management is coordinated between departments in the hospital. ECG management streamlines procedures in the Operating Room and Cardiology Department, but its life-saving benefits are most profound in the Emergency Department.

Financial benefits include saving at least $7.00 per exam for resting ECG tests. ECG management eliminates the costs of all those “chart pulls” that consume staff time and facility materials.

It is Time to Modernize

ECG management software has changed the way we communicate, helps analyze processes, and results in outstanding financial ROI. Break down the barriers to productivity in your organization and learn more about Epiphany’s Cardio Server ECG Management system today.

Why Epiphany Hospital Customers Should Consider Adding Clinics and Physician Practices

Posted by Allison Fawber on June 1, 2017 at 10:37 AM

Does your organization have multiple, hospital-owned physician groups, internal medicine, or cardiology clinics where you share services? Are these clinics faxing studies to cardiologists at the hospital for over-reads and then requiring those studies to be faxed back? This communication process is not only time-consuming but also adds additional labor costs. As an example, studies are printed and then scanned into the EMR. The many manual steps involved in data handling, such as printing, scanning, or faxing, are an inefficient use of clinical and administrative staff.

Clinic_Add-on_Model.png

Many of our customers are moving to a model where the hospital leverages its Cardio Server system by adding their clinics and physician practices, so they can utilize the system as well. While we also support clinic add-ons for smaller hospitals just adding a couple of facilities, some of our hospital customers are adding over 50 clinics and physician practices.  

Multiple sites sharing healthcare IT systems usually have diverse legacy devices and cannot afford the typical proprietary solutions that require them to replace working devices from various manufacturers. Since Epiphany is compatible with 125 devices from over 45 vendors in 15 diagnostic modalities, we can support different legacy devices at each site.

Our customers have also shared with us that in multi-site configurations, each hospital system needs to be able to define its own flexible workflow. Epiphany supports the ability to adjust Cardio Server to fit different workflow preferences. We have numerous configuration options that can provide workflow for different facilities within the enterprise. Most often, large enterprises are looking for consistency. Our experienced project team analyzes and evaluates existing workflow and develops a uniquely tailored, best-practices workflow that can be applied across the enterprise to provide a consistent, high-quality clinical experience for physicians and patients.   

Benefits of Adding Clinics & Physician Practices:Sites_dropdown.png

  • Eliminates printing, faxing, and scanning reports.
  • Main hospital site and all additional sites can be easily accessible based on permission settings. (See image.) 
  • When available, previous ECGs are provided for side-by-side comparison, calipers, and other advanced functionality.
  • Patient diagnostic study results are available in both the main hospital EMR and the clinic EMR.
  • Notifications to referring physicians at the clinic/physician practice that a study has been over-read so they can properly diagnose and treat the patient.
  • Allows access to Cardio Server from virtually anywhere. 

Now is the perfect time to leverage your Cardio Server system and experience the benefits of adding your organization’s clinics and physician practices.
