EMR for Cardiologists
Electronic Medical Records Software for Cardiologists
Nightingale On Demand – A Complete EMR Solution
Nightingale On Demand is a state-of-the-art Electronic Medical Records solution build specifically for Cardiologists. Integrated with practice management, laboratory interfacing, patient portal and data-mining reports, the Web-based software improves quality, streamlines operations and ensures compliance to industry standards and best practices. Nightingale On Demand comprises multiple modalities, including echocardiograms, treadmill stress tests and nuclear tests to help Cardiologists effectively manage a growing number of patient visits.
Easy chart access
Cardiologists need ready access to charts at the clinic, hospital and home. Most on-premise EMR solutions, however, don’t allow Cardiologists to work with charts remotely. Instead the physician must visit the location where the information resides – an ineffective system when you’re dealing with life-threatening conditions. Nightingale On Demand lets physicians access charts through the Web, giving them freedom both to deliver world-class care and enjoy their lifestyle.
When Cardiologists assess patients for heart disease, chest pain and atrial fibrillation, for example, they need to quickly look up the corresponding assessment codes to bill for the encounter and develop the proper treatment plan for the patient. With an ever-growing database of assessment codes, however, finding the correct billing information is often time consuming. Worse, if the wrong code is submitted, reimbursements are delayed, hurting the practice’s cash flow. Nightingale On Demand provides all the necessary assessment codes Cardiologists need to effectively treat and bill patients for heart problems.
Cardiologists assess patient health with a battery of tests, including ECG, Holter monitors, stress and loop tests. But the data is of limited value if it can’t be accessed promptly. Nightingale On Demand’s “One patient, One record” approach promotes easy online access to critical data when it is most needed. To promote data-driven patient care, Nightingale On Demand notifies the Cardiologist as soon as a test result is available for review.
The treatment plan, if any, including tests and procedures ordered, plus any advice given, should also be well documented by the Cardiologist. Nightingale On Demand keeps track of patient treatment plans, making them readily available online. Cardiologists can easily monitor their patients' progress whether it is post surgical regimen, medication or diet changes.
With each prescription, Cardiologists usually need to check the medication's interaction with allergies, food and other medications. The consequences of failure are grave. Nightingale On Demand comes with the Cerner Multum drug database to automate interaction checking online. The solution also assigns prescription numbers to aide with tracking prescriptions and help thwart drug abuse.
The biggest issue with triaging is quickly gaining a comprehensive overview of the patient’s condition. An acute cardiac arrest, for example, demands higher priority than examining a new patient. To quickly set priority, Nightingale On Demand gives Cardiologists and their staff the ability to review patient records online, making it easy to assess the situation and assign the level of care appropriate to the severity of the condition.
Quick consult letters
Developing professional, polished consult letters from scribbled, fragmented notes is quite time consuming. Still Cardiologists rely on consult letters to represent themselves to referring physicians, expand their brand and grow their practice. Nightingale On Demand simplifies the consult letter process by capturing text through integrated transcript and speech-recognition software. Cardiologists can even sign and fax consult letters directly from the Web-based EMR solution.
Hospital and clinic billing
Cardiologists often face two different billing scenarios: At the clinic staff handles the patient list and billing procedures. But at the hospital, Cardiologists are handed a stack of cards with patient information, which turns the billing process into a nightmare when each patient’s information must be entered manually into the system. Nightingale On Demand streamlines the billing process by allowing Cardiologists to enter the information directly from the hospital. By the end of the visit, all the essential data is captured and the practice is ready to bill.
Cardiologists know they need to stay current on medical advances in their dynamic field. So, they attend conferences, study medical journals and engage in other continuous learning activities. But many Cardiologists struggle with where to store the research information. Nightingale On Demand gives physicians an online repository to store treatment guidelines and other vital data, which physicians access with a click of the mouse.
