Multi-State Provider Group Selects Enterprise Cloud Computing Company for Anesthesia EMR
Nashville, TN and Knoxville, TN (January 30, 2012) — Shareable Ink®, an enterprise cloud computing company that transforms paper documentation to structured data, and Resource Anesthesia, a multi-state turnkey anesthesia services provider that serves hospitals, surgery centers and specialty physician groups, announced today the deployment of Shareable Ink Anesthesia Suite.
Because of an increasingly competitive environment for hospital-based physician services, provider groups must demonstrate cost-effective, high-quality care to win and retain hospital contracts. Resource Anesthesia selected Shareable Ink to achieve three important goals:
- Quality of Care: Providing objective measures of the group’s quality and efficiency to hospital partners and leveraging this empirical data to develop business with new hospitals
- Cost Control: Managing pharmacy costs through increased granularity of drug utilization in cases
- Accelerated Revenue Cycle: Driving up a higher first pass clean claims rate through improved documentation compliance at the point of care
Resource Anesthesia now captures data more efficiently to share with its hospital and surgery center partners, enhancing their ability to report on quality management initiatives, facility billing, and OR efficiency.
“Without changing our workflow, Shareable Ink allows us to easily deploy a solution that significantly improves provider performance and efficiency through objective analysis of case data,” said Phillip Haynie, CEO of Resource Anesthesia. ”Electronic data automatically produced from the paper record also leads to improved revenue cycle management across the board and provides insightful information to stakeholders.”
Shareable Ink represents an innovative approach to electronic health records that captures structured and actionable data with no change in workflow for providers. Providers utilize Shareable Ink to document in their customary fashion, using natural input tools, such as digital pens and iPads, without compromising productivity. Clinical and business rules embedded into familiar forms deliver feedback to the providers and help to ensure that records are complete and compliant. The data is made available to other stakeholders in patient care and to offsite billing departments as soon as the case is completed.
“We are delighted to be selected by Resource Anesthesia,” commented Stephen S. Hau, President and CEO, Shareable Ink. “Our enterprise cloud computing approach allows us to deliver meaningful results to customers within a few weeks.”
