With hospitals and practices having to coordinate care with so many different people and departments, there is always room for error and miscommunication. Add to that the fact that there’s no denying the tedious nature of charge capture for a rounding practitioner.
What if you had a patient rounding tool that provided a solution for quickly relaying information AND capturing hospital charges easily?!? Rounding is arguably one of the most important functions in a hospital. If rounds are done with pen and paper, not everything can be collected and recorded accurately and timely during a busy day. A powerful patient rounding tool for charge capture will help physicians and healthcare staff capture a larger number of charges while at the same time improving the quality of care.
Moving away from pen and paper to a digital and mobile patient rounding tool will increase patient and staff satisfaction, improve outcomes and streamline workflow across all departments. Billing departments will be provided with more accurate and cleaner data allowing them to review and submit physician charges smoothly, effectively and most of all, quickly. That dreaded charge lag is minimized and the revenue cycle is shortened.
A patient rounding tool for healthcare professionals for charge capture can improve the following:
- Quality of care
- Ability to capture all charges
- Optimizing diagnoses and codes
- Data collection
- Increasing physician, practice and hospital revenue
A patient rounding tool for charge capture is the flagship technological innovation from HybridChart. Now you can streamline patient hospital rounding and diminish lost charges.
