Electronic records and deficiencies-who would have thought it many years ago! Have you ever heard the term can’t teach an old dog new tricks? Well, I am sure we all have a few doctors that we love, but have been a doctor for so long that they will not come off of their old ways. Trying to get them to sign a record on the computer is like pulling teeth. We even have some that we literally have to print the order out, fax to them to sign, they fax it back, and we scan it back into the system.
I grew up with computers so I don’t know any different and I am fascinated with all the new gadgets as we grow in the technology world. Most of our younger and newer doctors love being able to complete their deficiencies on the computer from anywhere they want. They can complete their deficiencies from their office, homes, on iphones, and ipads. So how do you get those other doctors to get tech savvy? Well that will probably never happen, but you can slowly ease some of them into it.
I will tell you a story of one of my favorite doctors. He is getting ready to retire here in about a month, but when we went electronic he would come see me and I would have to walk him through each and every step each time he came to the office. At first he would look at the records and give me the okay and I would do all the computer stuff. After a while he got a little more comfortable doing it and began doing it himself with me right by his side of course. Over the course of several years he has learned how to do them on his on and now he does them from his office.
So when trying to teach an anti EMR doctor to go from the paper world to the technological world don’t force them to do something when they have been doing…Continue

If your Invision Patient Management system interfaces with other systems and exchanges Patient data, then you may find this helpful. I’ve worked with two types of interfaces and can share a few things I’ve learned about them.
When discussing setting up this type of exchange of data, you need to have a very good understanding of the patient flow in order to document the data flow. Otherwise, you may end up with unexpected results, creating additional work, patient dissatisfaction, and possibly authorization denials. If the account is being registered in SMS and simply sending patient data to another system, this will be a one-way interface. A lot of times this is used when you are simply feeding information to another vendor or system for them to use the data to load into their system. Typically companies doing billing for the physicians will request this type of information so that they get all the patient demographic and insurance information needed to bill the insurance and patient for the physician services. The only issue with this type of interface is if the receiver of the data obtains updated information, there is not an automated way to get this information back to update your Invision system. In which case, you may not receive the information unless you have established a manual process to exchange the data. This can become a customer service issue, if the patient thinks they have supplied updated insurance information. Patients don’t always understand that when they come to the hospital, they may get bills from the facility as well as any physician that may have seen them.
Now if your facility has elected to set up a two-way interface, you will get the updated information, which would seem to be a good thing. But there are instances where the information will not always be the same between different providers/systems. It will present some…Continue
