“One of the things that I encounter regularly is that providers feel like adding their own patients to the census is going to cost them a lot of time. I understand the perception, but I’d like to try to speak to why that’s not true. First of all, if HybridChart integrates with the outpatient EHR, patients can be searched that way and pulled from a database. Additionally, HybridChart retains a record of the patient from any previous admission in the system, so patients only ever need to be entered once. Sometimes, first time patients need to be entered manually, but that process takes about 10 seconds. The required fields are very minimal.
So yes, it may take longer than slapping a sticker on a piece of paper. But, think about it from the other end – there’s no need to keep track of all those little pieces of paper. There’s no need to then haul them from the hospital to the office. There’s no potential of losing them. All the data flows right to the billing staff in real time, so charge entry lag is reduced. A biller won’t have to track down a provider to try to decipher their handwriting.
The office staff can help maintain the census too, which can help limit the times when providers will need to add patients at all.
And, even if it does take an additional few seconds, this tool offers some amazing benefits in the form of census management, discharge planning (there’s a time saver right there – no need to call the office to schedule an appointment), secure messaging, and analytics.”
