Have you ever stopped to think how much time you waste in doing certain things? How about wasted time in a car? Or wasted time spent waiting on hold on the phone? Or wasted time when you are standing in a line waiting to purchase something?


Alas! Multi-tasking can be the answer parred with utilizing technology while you wait. Books on tape are a favorite way for me to learn a new business skill or approach while I am driving. I also use hands-free texting to make lists of things I need to get done while I am commuting. While being placed on-hold is annoying, there are things you can still accomplish while on-hold. Put the phone on speaker and you can finish an email or two. Or you can finish that report you were working on earlier. In fact, you can eliminate waiting altogether: Amazon and other on-line shopping has made it much too convenient to NEVER have to stand in a line. Search for the product, place order and in 1-2 business days, your products arrive without you ever leaving your home.

Unfortunately, healthcare access has the same issues. How long is an average wait in an ER? Research indicates it is approximately 29 minutes on a national average. This is grueling if you are not feeling well or are in an emergency health situation. However, a new trend in which you call in to the ER and “get in line virtually” is emerging and is very popular. This is a brilliant idea to decrease the actual in-house waiting time and to improve patient satisfaction.

With all the responsibilities, regulations and clerical work for today’s physician, wasting time is doing anything other than actually providing care for patients. If your providers are still using paper to round on patients, they are indeed wasting time.

Hello HybridChart! Goodbye Wasted Time!

HybridChart is a rounding solution for specialists coming from area clinics to round or provide consult to patients in the hospital. Most still use paper. What? Wait! I thought everything is electronic within the medical system these days? No, not if the physician is an independent provider and is not employed by the hospital. They will be coming from their clinic and will need to be bringing their charges and rounding information to and from the hospital.

At HybridChart, we are EVOLVING and are dedicated to providing technology that connects your healthcare team, increases efficiencies all the way to output AND improves your bottom line.

HybridChart’s low-cost real time work flow and charge capture solution can add time to your day by automating your front end charges electronically.
