Advanced AI Creating New Avenues of Healthcare Efficiencies First, there was artificial intelligence (AI) that made machines capable of following mathematical directions to capture and store intelligence. Then came machine learning (ML), which advanced the machine intelligence to use collected data to make predictive solutions. We now have deep learning, a more intelligent subset of ML that is based on the human brain. As found on Medium, "Artificial Intelligence would be the bigger, encapsulating circle that contains Machine and Deep Learning".
One of the greatest challenges in providing excellent patient care is inefficiencies in data processing. This ranges from new patient processing to scheduling, initial consultations, and follow-up appointments to billing for services. The best radiology information system alleviates the day-to-day pressures of inefficient data entry and report generation giving you and your staff the time to do what you do best, take great care of your patients. Keep reading to learn more about what a radiology information system is and how it can improve efficiencies in your radiology practice.
There are many aspects of MACRA, and it's important you're familiar with all of them.
A reliable radiology information system (RIS) offers the electronic means to efficiently manage a radiology practice in all aspects that offer the best in patient care and practice management.
High Deductibles Have Lead to Difficulties Collecting for Services Rendered One of the latest healthcare challenges for many Americans today are the out-of-pocket, healthcare expenses. It is becoming apparent that high-deductible healthcare plans can pose a financial risk to people of low-income and those with chronic illnesses as found on USC News. If patients, especially those with chronic illnesses, are struggling to pay their out-of-pocket deductibles, providers are going to have the hardship to collect for services rendered.
Why Key Performance Indicators (KPI)? It is becoming proven that any business should be tracking and analyzing those unique factors that are relevant to the success of their organization through their key performance indicators (KPI).
If you're a physician, nurse, or another type of healthcare provider, you know what a huge burden prior authorization can be as it's extremely time-consuming. In fact, almost 90 percent of doctors have reported that prior authorization has become worse over the last five years. Here's what you need to know about prior authorization, along with the importance of choosing the best electronic prior authorization software.
Moving into the Future as Predicted in Science Fiction Innovative solutions continue to develop through advanced technology. It is looking more and more like we are on course to arrive in the future when Dr. McCoy quickly waves his infamous diagnostic tool over an endeared crew member to make a quick diagnosis and treat his comrade. If you haven't heard about it, this technology has been conquered. There is one thing we know for sure, technology is propelling us into the future.
If you're a medical professional, you probably know by now that since the beginning of 2019, PQRS, which is an acronym for Physician Quality Reporting System, has been replaced with MIPS. Maybe you've heard about these changes but aren't sure how they can improve your practice. Here's what you need to know about MIPS and its benefits, along with the importance of having the software for tracking composite scores.
It takes a lot of time and dedication to run a successful radiology practice. Many practices rely on obsolete systems based on paper to maintain files on patients and organize their work. These practices are at a severe disadvantage compared to practices which use a radiology information system.
Revenue Cycle Management (RCM) is an expensive, complex, but nonetheless critical element of every healthcare operation. Mismanaged RCM operations can result in higher staff turnover, reduced patient satisfaction, crippled healthcare processes, mounting debt, damaged reputations, and poor revenue. RCM is difficult to effectively implement. Fortunately, there are modern, 21st-century solutions to the RCM dilemma that enable healthcare organizations to harness the power of technology to disentangle their RCM processes and boost their revenue.
