Revenue Cycle Optimization
When working with a scribe, all medical charts are completed before the end of each provider shift. These are immediately available for submission to the billing department. This quick turnaround allows for streamlined reimbursement. Medical providers now have less lag-time between provision of care and payment.
Observation Unit Documentation
The “observation admission” is becoming increasingly more frequent within US healthcare. The “two midnight” rule is utilized for those patients who do not require a full admission to the hospital, but just need a “tune up.” Our scribes can help with quick turnaround in these time-sensitive environments. Our customized training programs focus on those diseases and conditions which are most prevalent in observation units across the country.
Computerized Physician Order Entry (CPOE) Support
In certain instances, scribes are able to assist with CPOE. This is dependent on your facility’s accrediting body and specific electronic medical record software. By allowing scribes to help with this often burdensome task, providers are able to increase their efficiency throughout a shift.
Meaningful Use Assistance
The Meaningful Use Incentive program from CMS continues to be difficult to demonstrate for many organizations. Elite Medical Scribes can help achieve compliance and avoid reimbursement penalties through meticulous documentation and leveraging your electronic medical record’s meaningful use-certified features. Let Elite manage the documentation process so your clinicians can work with patients.
