While healthcare organizations have seen an increase in the amount owed by patients in recent years, claims reimbursements still generate the majority of their revenue. Correctly documenting patient care across the entire episode of care is essential – but what turns claims into cash is how efficiently your organization manages claims information.
With proven Healthcare Revenue Cycle Management solutions, OnBase streamlines tasks throughout the patient encounter phase, from clinical documentation, health information management and medical coding to medical case management.
OnBase captures and stores all the related patient information that lives outside the EMR. Once integrated with your core systems, authorized users easily access the information they need from within the applications they use every day – whether that’s your organization’s EMR or third-party coding solution – to make it easier for your users to complete work quickly.
To streamline coding tasks, OnBase segments out work by Admission Type, Facility and Diagnosis Codes. And, by integrating with third-party applications like 3M, Optum, Nuance and others, OnBase allows staff to easily access related clinical documentation, transcriptions, reports and other relevant patient demographic content stored in OnBase while performing coding and abstracting tasks.
By parsing out the relevant documents, OnBase helps lessen manual coding time by preparing data for machine interpretation and notation and eliminating duplicate work.
OnBase supports a variety of other HIM functions, too, like deficiency completions and release of information. Rather than relying on manually routing hard copies of physician notes for review and revision, OnBase ingests transcribed physician notes and automatically associates them with the appropriate patient record, notifying clinicians when they are available to review, revise, and approve within the EMR.
