Speed and efficiency are critical aspects of patient care. Timely receipt and transfer of study data, diagnosis, billing information, etc., are vital in today's healthcare market. Manual order reconcillliation is a tedious process and we have the solution.
What is it? Auto-reconciliation. You spend a lot of time manually reconciling studies to orders for tests performed before an order has been placed. It is a time-consuming, laborious process.
With Epiphany’s Cardio Server, your studies automatically reconcile even if an order is sent after the test has been performed. This is a big deal as other ECG management systems can only offer a manual reconciliation process. A manual process involves many tedious steps to link a study to an order, these are extra steps that waste your valuable time.
Cardio Server can reconcile on patient ID, patient name, and date of study. If these fields do not suit your needs, different fields can be used for reconciliation—the settings are configurable based on your preference.
Emergency Department Benefits
Cardio Server enables a workflow where an emergency department physician makes a full interpretation of the study before an order is placed. When the order comes in and matches to the study, it is automatically confirmed. The reading physician does not have to take another look at the study. This is extremely important as most ECGs in the emergency department are initially completed before an order is placed. This process also helps with the hospital’s door-to-balloon time protocols because the ECGs are confirmed by a physician immediately upon receipt.
No add-on is required for this type of workflow; auto-reconciliation is something our application has been able to do for years. Auto-reconciliation is included with Cardio Server’s default configuration and the settings can be tailored to your needs. Cardio Server’s order reconciliation process greatly reduces manual workflow steps saving clinicians valuable time.
