27 Impact on Process

28 Issues – General  Automation supports well-designed business processes, but makes poorly- designed processes worse.  EHR will shine a light on the cobwebs  Facilities need to be willing to change to maximize the positive impacts of EHR Don’t design workarounds so that you can do things the way you used to... Don’t design workarounds so that you can do things the way you used to... DON’T AUTOMATE WASTE!

29 Medical Records Process  When to stop pulling the chart  Filing notes AND orders in chart?  Print And File Chart Copies? Batch Print?  Release Of Information?  Outside Consults? Scanning?  Incorrect Entries?  Entering newborns into RPMS asap

30 Miscellaneous Policies/Procedures  People who aren’t using E.H.R. yet- how are they handled?  Use of personal templates  Template approval process  Flowsheets and other paper documents

31 Radiology Process Changes  Using RPMS Radiology Package  Providers order the exam electronically  Radiology orders print out automatically

32 Lab Process/Prep  All Labs need to be entered in RPMS On-site Labs On-site Labs Reference Labs Reference Labs  Computer Access Points  Changing from Esig to EHR  Created Quick Order Menus

33 Lab Process  How to handle add on labs  How does the lab know when the pt is there?  Lab only visits  How to communicate the “Signs and Symptoms” (lab pov) to the lab

34 Lab Quick Orders

35 Pharmacy Process  Outside Prescription Orders  Printing pharmacy service copies for orders  Refill and New prescriptions aren’t always grouped  Printing controlled substances  How to incorporate pharmacy patient signature log  Pharmacy Requirement for Completed/Signed Notes

36 PCC Coding Process  Coding and Data entry is combined position at our facility  Coders are assigned to provider teams  Coding/Auditing from daily reports (VGEN and Audit Report)  We code from EHR, not the chart  Corrections are communicated to provider via notification

37 PCC Error Report  Instead of 2 data entry clerks, we have 70 data entry providers who encode data  Daily Error Reports should be run  Most Common Errors: Missing POV Missing POV Missing E&M Code Missing E&M Code Uncoded diagnosis Uncoded diagnosis Duplicate Visits Duplicate Visits 2 visits created on the same day – have to be merged2 visits created on the same day – have to be merged Dental makes 2 visits that need to be mergedDental makes 2 visits that need to be merged Patch comingPatch coming

38 PCC-Business Office Communications  Bills are generated before PCC has reviewed the visit

39 What does EHR cost?

40 Cost Estimates-WSP

41 Impact

42 GPRA Indicators - Flu Vax

43 GPRA Indicators – Pneumovax over 65 y/o

44 GPRA Indicators – Tobacco Use Assessment

45 GPRA Indicators – DV/IPV

46 GPRA Indicator – BMI 2-74 y/o

47 GPRA Indicators – Med Ed

48 Revenue  Increased 56% 2005 compared to 2004 More specific coding More specific coding Clinic Efficiency Clinic Efficiency Will improve with PCC patch to correct visit creation errors Will improve with PCC patch to correct visit creation errors

49 What’s Next?  Scheduling GUI  Vista Imaging  Dental COTS Package  Digital Radiology  Voice/Stylus Data Entry
