Healthcare Technology: The Gaps in Utilizing Telemonitoring

 
Medical Management Services telemonitoring

The benefits of tele-monitoring are evident, especially for some diagnoses.  But the theory behind tele-monitoring and the realities of dealing with tele-monitoring have a gap in-between them.  How to over-come the gap and bring real value is the question.

Finding the Right Balance in Healthcare Practices

"Patients and physicians alike are confused and disoriented by the new digital world, even while being empowered by the knowledge they can impart. These cutting edge technologies have the potential to dramatically improve a patient’s healthcare experience, but to get there, we first have to engage in some good old fashioned talk."

Who pays for EMR/EHRs?

The deadlines are clearly upon us and everyone is scrambling to buy/implement EHRs to meet these deadlines.  But a recent survey of providers by CMS uncovered the "who pays for all this technology" BEFORE it saves all this money in the future? Providers in all kinds of employment situations are concerned about how to pay for the technology that supports, manages, and implements the EHR.

Practice Management:Patient Kiosk Terminals

I recently attended the McKesson Horizon Practice Plus user conference in Dubuque Iowa. One of the sessions spotlighted a case study for an organization involved in a pilot program implementing a “Patient Kiosk” in the registration areas of their multi-specialty clinic. While the program was new at this facility and offered only a limited amount of data thus far, the concept of the patient kiosk was very intriguing.

I have been thinking about the term “state of the art” in relationship to current medical facilities. One must keep in perspective that, what is currently “state of the art” in Pumpkin Vine, Alabama, may be behind the times in a larger city such as Chicago or New York!

Medical Billing Software: the Good, the Bad and the Ugly (con't)

Medical billing software comes in all shapes and sizes.  There are the monsters that can accommodate multiple customers and databases and there are the simple "one doc" small ones.

Physician office Practices: The future Can Be Now

 

Recently I had to visit a specialist (no worries).  I was impressed at the level of automation and sophistication at a 1 doc practice.  I was called the day before to remind me of my appointment.  When I arrived, I checked in via a computer, that was very patient and age friendly .  I was called back to exam room and noticed immediately that each exam room was equipped with a lap top computer and a printer.  The nurse that called me to the room, sat down at lap top and pulled up my record and promptly input my vitals.  After a brief wait, the physician entered.  After a few amenities (hi, how are you?) The physician then picked up a voice activated recorder and began to record my visit.  I had had recent blood work and x-rays. The results were electronically posted in the chart and we discussed them  Looking at the screen occasionally and deleting a word and repeating the word, he made his way through a template of the visit. He spoke to me and the computer at the same time.......Pt denies blah, blah, blah, looking at me and me nodding my head. I naturally had some questions.  The physician listened, went to a web site and printed off some material for me to read....22 pages of material. I needed additional blood work, and he asked me to just wait in the exam room.  In about 10 minutes, a phlebotomist was there to draw my blood.  After drawing my blood, the person, while labeling my tubes, told me that results would be sent to physician within 24 hours and the doctor would call me with any results.
