What You Need To Know - EMRs


Did you know

Not all EMRs are able to export demographics or import medical records from your medical transcription service?  Upon purchase, your EMR must have an interfacing component, even if it isn't used immediately.  When researching your EMR, be sure that lab results, radiology and transcription are able to be imported into your new system. 

Issues

Many practices, clinics, hospitals are assured they can do their own transcription and save tons in transcription costs.  This is a fallacy.  Our clients have actually lost money as the time it takes to document a simple visit lends itself to the focus being on the computer instead of the patient and billable hours take a hit from seeing less patients.  

We are working with a client who has an EMR and after having it for some time is coming back to dictation/transcription for documentation because the EMR is lacking.  In order to document patient encounters the way the physician would like, he would have to fork out $3800 to $5000 plus a monthly fee for interfacing HL7.  To add to that, his EMR vendor needs to switch him over to another system due to Meaningful Use Stage 3 issues as the current EMR is no longer compatible.  


Solutions

Plan B with this client is dictating via his cell phone and then doing a copy/paste into his EMR via our software platform (for billing, tracking line counts and transcriptionists).  


We believe and have found that working with the EMR companies (although is not easy at times) in providing a blended approach, using both the EMR in combination with transcription, is most beneficial to the practices' bottom line and most of all patient care.  

We want to partner with you in providing your patients appropriate documentation while making the physicians' lives easier.  Want to know more?  See what we have to offer.

Obamacare Humor



The American Medical Association has weighed in on the new healthcare package. 

The allergists were in favor of scratching it, but the dermatologists advised not to make any rash moves.

The gastroenterologists had sort of a gut feeling about it, but the neurologists thought the Administration had a lot of nerve.

Meanwhile, obstetricians felt certain everyone was laboring under a misconception, while the ophthalmologists considered the idea short-sighted. Pathologists yelled, “Over my dead body!” while the pediatricians said, “Oh, grow up!”

The psychiatrists thought the whole idea was madness, while the radiologists could see right through it. Surgeons decided to wash their hands of the whole thing, and the internists claimed it would indeed be a bitter pill to swallow.

The plastic surgeons opined that this proposal would “put a whole new face on the matter”. Anesthesiologists thought the whole idea was a gas, and those lofty cardiologists didn't have the heart to say no.

The podiatrists thought it was a step forward, but the urologists were pissed off at the whole idea.

In the end, the proctologists won out, leaving the entire decision up to the assholes in Washington.

What Sets Us Apart

There are so many medical transcription companies out there. How do you choose the one for your practice, clinic or hospital?  All medical transcription companies tout the same high accuracy, quick turnaround, etc.  Those qualities in a medical transcription service provider (MTSO) should be an absolute given because you're producing documentation for a patient.

Setting Just My Type Transcription apart from other medical transcription service providers is easy.  All companies focus on the same perks, what physicians need to hear, industry standards.  The proof is truly in the end product, and not all transcription companies and/or medical transcriptionists produce or care to produce accurate reports.

Here's are a few items that set us apart.

Workflow

No need to change your workflow or the way you dictate.  We seamlessly fit into your everyday affairs, which allows total focus on your patients.  Whether you use our platform or want Word documents, we cater to our clients.

Accuracy

We are producing reports at 100% accuracy, and this is verifiable in our software platform.

Technology

We offer our clients the cutting-edge software platform with the ONLY mobile application that goes beyond just dictation.

Speech Understanding Technology

Generate transcription text using software that "learns" to "understand" individual dictators.  

EMR Integration

Record patient encounters traditionally as narrative reports and/or as structured data which can then be integrated into an EMR without a decline in productivity (revenue).  If an EMR system isn't yet a reality for your practice, having months of history that will then be able to be integrated when you're ready gives your practice a head start in meeting Meaningful Use.  This will also relieve staff time scanning documents, etc.

Support

Unprecedented setup, implementation and ongoing support, not only from us but from our software provider, Emdat.  You're never alone!
