Meet Meaningful-Use with Existing Systems…

Already have a Laboratory Information System that’s working for you? What about a Pharmacy Information System that your pharmacy department likes and uses? How about an ADT and Patient Financial system like HDMS that has years of patient data in it already and everyone already knows how to use? You DO NOT have to replace them to meet meaningful-use…

DSM has partnered with a leading provider of electronic health record (EHR) solutions. Relware, a provider of a natively web-based enterprise software for hospitals called EXR, is working with DSM to offer its clients access to a 100% web-based, configurable, enterprise-wide EHR that will integrate seamlessly with your existing ADT, Lab, Radiology, Pharmacy and other departmental ancillary systems.

We realize that one size does not fit all – this EHR will allow organizations to not only define templates for views, but all users can “personalize” their EHR view to suit their needs, their workflow and their specialty. We believe that if you let the users have input into how the system looks and feels they will be more apt to use it – which in turns drives adoption. Adoption is directly related to meaningful-use.

Not only will your users use it, it will save your organization money. You can save hundreds of thousands of dollars by not replacing existing systems. Not only in the cost of replacement, but also in the disruption of work and retraining of departmental users. Best of all, you have the option of hosting the solution yourself or we can deploy as Software as a Service (SaaS).

EXR was built with Henry Ford Health System in Detroit, Michigan. At Henry Ford they call the EHR project “Care Plus Next Generation” (CPNG) and will support 14,000 registered users across 8 hospitals with a total of 2,900-beds, close to 100 clinics and the 1,100 physician Henry Ford Medical Group. We have brought forward almost 25-years worth of clinical data into the new system. Henry Ford will keep all of their departmental systems in place and put this EHR on top of everything to meet meaningful-use.

It’s Got a Dashboard!

DSM’s new insurance programs include a dashboard.  We have dashboards in our cars, what’s a dashboard doing in an insurance system?  The term “dashboard” is commonly used now to describe what in the past might have been the “menu”, but that term just doesn’t quite cut it for the more modern applications.  An automobile’s dashboard organizes and presents information in a way that is easy to read and for that reason the term has been adapted to computer applications that try to do the same thing.   OK, now that’s out of the way, let’s look at how the new DSM “dashboard” organizes and presents  information in a way that is easy to read.

Just like the “oh” meters in your car, the left side of the dashboard has graphics to tell you things like, how many unfiled claims there are, how many have been filed, how many are unpaid etc. 

This dialog box which is part of the dashboard, let’s you choose what you want to see.

Once the user chooses, filed claims for example, then the user specifies what period to review, today, yesterday, a week etc.

If you don’t like pie charts, you can choose a bar chart:

The right side of the dashboard helps you keep up with the work flow, allowing the user the choice of viewing claims that have failed the scrubber, been denied, are unpaid as well as messages the system uses to inform the user of any important situations.

By double clicking on the patients displayed in the “failed scrubber” view, the claim can be reviewed with the results of the scrubbing.

These are just the options that we have added so far, additional options will be added, but we think it’s the way to go, hope you do too!
