Dramatic New Product Released by AlertMD

AlertMD does it again! A new automated feature, AutoCode by AlertMD has has automated billing in the OR and providers are loving it!

"This is AMAZING – the new product will make my life so much simpler at the hospital now."

- Dr. Raghu Reddy, Ohio Gastroenterology

The procedure he did this morning was coded and the operating report was loaded back into his office for review by his billers by the time he got out of his scrubs in the OR.

AlertMD derived the procedure codes for pro-fee billing, extracted the procedure note, submitted the note to the practice billing team, auto-inserted the procedure codes into the mobile solution, and submitted the codes for review to the practice billers. One procedure note and Dr. Reddy was done with his billing!

This solution has the following advantages:

  1. It provides 100% consistency between the hospital version of the coding and the clinical version.
  2. It insures that your providers will not forget to bill for their procedures – which in turn increases their loyalty to you.
  3. There are clear firewalls, and the physicians will pay for their economic value. The hospital’s role is to offer an efficient workplace for procedures.

AlertMD Completes Marquee Integration

AlertMD integrates with Alaska Regional Hospital to automate the census for Alaska Heart real-time through an HL7 Interface.

As every new patient relationship for one of our physician practices, Alaska Heart, is established at Alaska Regional Hospital, a real-time message communicates that to AlertMD.

The patient is then assigned to the appropriate physician within AlertMD and shows up on the mobile device of the physician in the group. A few seconds of processing later, charges for the patient are now submitted, and the patient status at the clinic is checked. If it is an existing patient, a new visit is created and charges entered into the PM system. If it is a new patient, the patient is automatically registered, and charges head back into the practice with it. The moment a patient is assigned to a physician, we then track charges to ensure that every charge the patient is due is billed.

All of this is what happens today via the AlertMD mobile platform at Alaska Heart. We are announcing more clients and more integrations with hospitals. In the coming weeks, we will announce one of the largest hospital-owned physician group to adopt AlertMD. Three other clients that each employ 100+ physicians will also be announced in the coming weeks.

In addition to all of this, we are also unveiling our fully-text based automated secure texting service to hospitals around the country with one hospital in the Chicago-area going live in a few months.

Thanks a lot for all your support, and we look forward to serving you.

Hospital News

The following value-adds to hospitals will incent them to work with us. If you do not get a direct patient extract from your hospital, kindly have the administrators at the hospitals read the below and get in touch with us.

  • DRG Assist - Our new module to improve hospital DRGs is being built at a handful of hospitals to improve performance. The hospital receives an alert to the CDMP nurse. The alert will specify exactly which chart to audit for potential improvement in DRG - e.g., look in Chart 23232 for aspirational pneumonia vs. pneumonia.

  • Hospital Occupancy predictor — We are embarking on a hospital occupancy predictor module to project near-term occupancy at the hospital to assist with flex staff labor planning. The system is built on the existing AlertMD data feeds from the hospital.

Practice News

Substantial New Functionality Now in AlertMD

AlertMD released a new Specialist-Edition with a hospital focus. Available now – download and install AlertMD 6.0 from the Apple App Store.

AlertMD released a new Specialist-Edition with a hospital focus. If you are a specialist or would like your hospital’s facesheet to show up automatically at your practice, you will find AlertMD 6.0 to be particularly useful.

We now have 3400 rules for specialists to help with coding that have been created in collaboration with physician practices. Our multi-level coding guidance unit now will enable a narrative to capture the information the physician needs to provide to the billing office. Likewise, global periods will now light up automatically and guide a physician through when charges are billable and when they are not. Our new CPT search module enables free text searches of the entire CPT module. The ICD10 implications are enormous. We are also embarking on a note-assist module to help documentation improve at the hospital.

At dozens of practices around the country, the facesheet now shows up inside the practice system seconds after the physician stands bedside to enter charges, but we don't stop there. If an element in the facesheet changes, we will highlight it and refresh the practice copy – no more searching for the latest versions.

And did I say, in the time since the last new update, we doubled again! Recent use of AlertMD has begun at about a dozen practices, including GI Associates in Wisconsin – one of the largest groups in that specialty in the country.

Download AlertMD 6.0 and enjoy. Consider “liking” us on Facebook here.

AlertMD Offers Incredible Automation

Dr. Arif Ali, a sports medicine orthopedic surgeon, completes billing seconds after he was done with his surgeries.

"AlertMD has far exceeded my expectations. Today, I finished coding 3 surgeries on my iPhone in 26 seconds – I am very impressed."

- Dr. Arif Ali, Orthopedic Surgery Specialists, Park Ridge, IL

What he left out was that the hospital where he has privileges provides his rounding list and his patients' facesheets digitally to us. Patients on his census are automatically matched in the Progressive Management System (PMS), the facesheet is automatically entered, new patients are automatically registered, and his charges are submitted instantaneously.

AlertMD is now rolling out specialty specific modules - the comprehensive ortho module, neuro module, and several others to make it possible for all physicians to bill in seconds.

Hospitals offering AlertMD stand out in the crowd. Is your hospital one of them? Talk to us.

Surgeons can now spend 7 seconds billing as their census shows up automatically on their mobile device. Ambulatory Surgery Center (ASC) patients and inpatients - all kept in sync while billing becomes faster than paper processes. Missing charges are triaged using our auto-detection tool further adding to practice revenue.

Talk to your hospitals if they do not provide you their census electronically today.

If you are a Centricity practice, we are about to rollout real-time sync back into the practice management and electric medical records (EMR) so your facesheet at the hospital shows up inside your EMR seconds after the physician stands next to the patient bedside. The innovations keep coming!

AlertMD Reaches Milestone, Speeds Further

Here is what one of our happy customers have had to say about AlertMD:

"AlertMD has been of terrific value to us. It has streamlined our charge capture with a direct impact of huge time savings for our physicians. We have fewer missing charges and the charges we do receive are more timely and accurate. Most importantly, the product is very intuitive and customer service is terrific. We whole-heartedly recommend AlertMD.”

  3. Family Care Network in Whatcom County, WA went live with ChargeMD.
  4. And most importantly, we now receive a live census from Legacy Health Systems, a chain of 7 hospitals in the state of Washington for our customers that practice in 2 of the 7 hospitals. All they had to do was to ask the hospital to make it easy for them to do business there. If you do not get a census from your hospital onto your iPad/ iPhone directly, you may be only an email away. Ask and you may be able to make this happen for you!

Thanks a lot for your support, and we are delighted by our continued growth.

AlertMD Continues Meteoric Growth

Family Care Network, a 60-physician practice with 11 clinics, and a patient base of over 90,000, selects AlertMD.

They are a Centricity client and aim to also integrate charge capture into their workflow further - such as sourcing appointments, placing the charges back right into the EMR, etc.

Major Hospital to Make Census Electronically Available

Advocate Lutheran General Hospital has made it easy for its physicians to do business there by publishing its census via AlertMD.

Advocate Lutheran General is a teaching hospital, research center, and Level I trauma center with 645 beds. One of AlertMD's largest hospital partnerships yet.

With 1500+ physicians on staff, this brings convenience on an unparalleled basis to the facility. Within seconds of using the physician’s mobile device to scan a barcode at Advocate Lutheran General Hospital, the facesheet is brought back to the practice’s billing system along with charges for the hospital visit. AlertMD’s automatic missing charge module helps physician practices ensure that every single consult ever seen by the physician is billed for. Our intelligent coding module would make it easy for physicians to learn coding principles. We currently have licenses for ICD9 and are transitioning into ICD10 to guarantee that our billing options remain up-to-date for your physicians.

For some of our customers who do not have interfaces with the hospitals where you practice, this is a great indicator that innovative, physician-friendly hospitals will indeed move to serve you. Let us know if you want to work with your hospital administration to receive your census on your mobile device, and we will gladly enable such interfaces where you practice.

We are talking to hospital systems representing 120 hospitals around the country and look forward to bringing you more innovation to you.

AlertMD Excels in Solving Complex Billing Workflow

AlertMD excels in solving complex billing workflows, and physicians are delighted with the simplicity and efficiency of our solutions.

How much more complicated can it get than a single physician rounding at multiple hospitals, except billing as a different company for different patients? That was the challenge presented by Dr. Nathaniel Ross, and AlertMD hit the ball out of the park with our new solution.

"I practice medicine at two different hospitals and bill both individually and as part of a group. Managing a paper process for this was extremely complicated. AlertMD has vastly simplified my life. I bill the same day, and two different billing companies picked up the system in a matter of hours. This is a great product."

- Dr. Nathaniel Ross, Ross Family Medicine & Tatum Family Healthcare, Gary, Indiana

Hospital Reduces Adverse Events with our Technology

Advocate Good Samaritan, a hospital renown for its quality, finds more ways to improve the care for venous thromboembolism (VTE) with our solution.

Here is how:

"Advocate Good Samaritan Hospital is the winner of the Baldrige National Quality Award. When we were challenged with reducing the incidence of VTE, we turned to AlertMD’s analytics to help us. Armed with CoagAssist, a real-time analytics dashboard that adapted to our pharmacist’s workflow, we are happy to report that we have now successfully reached our goal. CoagAssist is a great tool for hospitals that are trying to organize their work, understand who to prioritize, and get their VTEs under control."

AlertMD Adds 2 New Hospitals to their Network

As of earlier today, Edward Hospital (http://www.edward.org) announced that it will be publishing its census to is physicians via AlertMD.

With these new hospital partners, we are able to provide a constantly updated hospital census lists to all of our provider practices that round there.

Additionally, after purchasing our mobile census platform, here is what the president of Advocate Good Samaritan hospital had to say:

"Advocate Good Samaritan hospital is constantly on the lookout for solutions that will make it easier for our physicians to do business with us. We found in AlertMD the ability to publish our census to our practicing physicians. Rather than have them print a paper copy of their rounding list, which becomes outdated the minute they print it and take notes on it, we have now signed up to enable our physicians to get their census electronically on their smartphone or tablet. We are very keen on excellent physician satisfaction and engagement for practicing physicians, and AlertMD is a key strategic initiative to help us with it."

- Dave Fox, President, Advocate Good Samaritan Hospital

AlertMD Reaches Washington State

AlertMD continues on our growth trajectory with the addition of two physician practices, Kartini Clinic and Advanced Gastroenterology.

Both practices are located in Washington state.

We are on a roll and look forward to having you as a customer!

Pending Patent Changes Physician Behavior

Another great day for AlertMD... 7-second charge capture with a picture on your phone is now pending patent!

It is not often that a company gets to send out a note where physicians declared that a product changed the way they practice (for the better!). Today, it is our turn.

"I scan the barcode on the chart of the patient at the point of care, and by the time I walk over to the next patient, I am already done entering my charges. AlertMD is awesome and has changed the way I bill for my work."

- Dr. Alan Wurzelbacher, Hospitalist at Central DuPage Hospital, DuPage Medical Group

Dr. Wurzelbacher has a lag time of just 0.6 days between seeing the patient and entering charges, his charge quality is 98%, and his response rate to inquiries is 100%, placing him as the leader of the pack for AlertMD’s hospitalist metrics.

If you are using a paper-based charge capture process, talk to us. If a physician can complete charges in the time it takes to walk from one bed to another - there are no more excuses to push paper.
