June 20, 2017 – 1:00 PM EST – WEBINARClick here to REGISTER

Roundtrip delivery of lab & imaging orders and results is a major cause of stress for many healthcare organizations. Between the ordering physician, the patient, and the diagnostic center multiple hand-offs between people and systems occur – which adds cost, time and errors to the process. Whether it’s the “print and hand it to the patient” method or electronic transmission, the process of managing the orders and results lifecycle encounters many obstacles along the way.

Please join IMT for a one-hour webinar event with our special guest Lisa Luikart (Cabell-Huntington Hospital) as she discusses Cabell’s ordering process challenges, how their IMT OQM™ solution transformed the hospital’s electronic ordering process and shares improvement metrics.

Please join IMT for a one-hour webinar event where our special guests Michelle Majerus (Olmsted Medical Center) and Lorraine Fernandes (Global HIM Thought Leader) as they share insights into the growing demand Healthcare places on timely, accurate and thorough patient identification.

Healthcare can be a very demanding industry.  The need to “get it done right, right now” means that all healthcare professionals and their associated processes are under extreme pressure to perform their best at all times.

Knowing a patient is the core of healthcare – who they are and what their history is forms the single most critical piece of the puzzle. Accurate and timely patient identification is at the core of answering these questions and meeting mandates for improving care quality and care coordination, lowering costs, and increasing patient satisfaction.

Benefits of participation include learning about:

  • Enhanced Patient Safety
  • Increased Staff Efficiency
  • Trusted Clinical Information Sharing
  • Improved Governance
  • Deeper Insights

Healthcare systems are united in their struggle to achieve the Triple Aim: transform processes to create a consumer-centric care model, innovate to stay financially viable, and better serve their communities. But achieving these goals has one consistent requirement—you must accurately identify the patient.

Olmsted Medical Center in southeastern Minnesota is advancing their Triple Aim goals by simplifying their approach to patient identification. For over five years, Olmsted has partnered with IMT to better identify their patients, innovate and transform processes, and measure improvements in patient identification. To date, their patient identification results are outstanding! Seamlessly integrating a premier patient search algorithm with Resolve:ID into the patient registration process has paid dividends beyond Olmsted’s expectations. As a result, Olmsted has reduced the staff time required to address duplicate medical record numbers by more than 75%, and reduced data quality issues by 77%.

By improving (and simplifying) patient identification, Olmsted is now:

  • Presenting the correct data to the patient, which safeguards data privacy and improves patient satisfaction
  • Preparing accurate, consistent data for the data warehouse and ultimate use in analytics, population health, research, and other functions
  • Reducing the staff burden of correcting medical record numbers, empowering staff to spend time working on more vital data quality measures
  • Improving billing efficiency, which avoids patient frustration from duplicate or delayed billings and improves cashflow
  • Alerting registration staff to data irregularities that may indicate fraud, identity theft, or other data issues

We’ve all talked about “keeping it simple” as a key way to improve processes and create better understanding. But putting simplicity into practice is a key part of Olmsted’s success. The premier patient search algorithm (Resolve:ID technology) was easily and seamlessly embedded into the patient search process, instantly displaying results to registration staff. And, because it’s so intuitive, it takes just one hour of training to enable registration staff to then demonstrate proficiency.

Please join IMT and Olmsted Medical Center as we discuss how they’re benefiting from their investment in EMPI and Resolve:ID technology for fast, efficient, and accurate patient search. Keeping it simple has never been so simple — and effective!

Register now for this webinar on Wednesday, September 21st at Noon Eastern.

Join industry experts from Olmsted Medical Center, IBM, and IMT for a Webinar where they discuss how IBM InfoSphere MDM can:

  • Improve patient care and patient experience
  • Increase quality and completeness of patient data
  • Provide a 360° view of the patient across systems
  • Reduce the number of duplicate patient records and eliminate overlays
  • Leverage new workflow technologies to reduce administrative duties

Leveraging the IBM InfoSphere MDM technology, Olmsted created a foundational EMPI (Enterprise Master Person Index) that matches & links patient records from across EMR, PM, LIS, RIS, and other data silos. By extending the EMPI with Active Registration, a process that searches the patient registry at the point of registration, Olmsted reduced inaccurate patient registration data by 50% and decreased patient registration time, thus achieving measurable ROI well beyond expectations.
