Have you met Margie® yet? Margie® helps physician practices increase profitability by engaging your patients, increasing the conversion of referrals and recalls to appointments and managing communications. She recently delivered a 15% increase in the referral conversion rate and a 210% increase in recall conversions!

Physician practices build their business through new patient referrals and follow up visits for existing patients. Consequently, you would think that they have a very clear answer to the following questions:

  • Out of every 100 new patient referrals last month, how many turned into appointments?
  • When a patient’s 3-year recall or follow up is due, what % of the patients schedule that visit?


And yet, when we asked several physician practices to answer these questions, barely a quarter of them were able to give an answer and those who did, said it was a good faith estimate without tools to measure the metrics.

Here is why these metrics are important…if just 10 more out of every 100 referrals became appointments, your practice may stand to make an estimated $3100 in profit. Many physician practices today convert less than 38% of their referrals and less than 20% of their recalls into appointments. Seems shockingly low? Check your own practice and let us know what you find – if you have the tools to find it quickly!

Margie helps physician practices increase profitability

Margie® helps physician practices increase profitability by engaging your patients, increasing the conversion of referrals and recalls to appointments and managing communications – whether it is a branded text, email or phone call to deliver greater patient volume and satisfaction to you.

Pipeline Report Image

It is not enough if you book a healthy % of your referrals. You want those bookings to be made promptly as well. A certain practice took 35 days from the date of eligibility to the date the appointment was scheduled. And the patient had to wait another 20 days to see the provider. Think about that – the patient saw the provider 60 days after the referral. What is the average lag for you? Do you know how you compare with the industry?

There are more questions than answers and more guesses than data today.

Enter Margie®

Margie increases your referral and recall conversion rate. We offer detailed metrics so you can measure and plan staffing, and we manage the communication to help you improve profitability. Whether it is communications in 16 languages, managing care protocols, or offering appointments automatically, Margie reduces the time it takes for your referrals and recalls to convert into appointments. She also manages refills, enables you to communicate securely via text with your patients, and help you increase patient satisfaction and your practice profitability.

Margie builds your brand, creates highly interactive experiences for your patients, and moves your patients from the phone to digital mediums and your portal.

Margie does not replace your portal – she does compete decisively with the ringing phone in your front office – and I think you would love her for doing that.

Cassidi automated EKG readings

EKGs are done hundreds, if not thousands of times, at any major facility. The clinician is assigned reading days where they may churn through 10 of them a minute to look for insights. The clinical notes are then entered into the electronic system (e.g., MUSE®, P-Scribe®, etc.), and the physician is done with that workflow. The central coding team picks this up and reads thousands of these, one at a time; diagnoses are entered, modifiers added as needed, the charge validated and then released for professional fee billing.

All of this sounds wonderful until we come to the realization that the remuneration for the professional fee per EKG varies from $4 to $17! The amount of work involved in coding is so high that the operation barely breaks even. Many systems outsource it, and the outsourced entity charges $3 per read, making the whole exercise pointless again.

EKG Interpretation Example: Doctor Note Example

Pro fee entered manually by coder in electronic health record: EKG Charge Example

What is the problem with this picture? In a declining reimbursement world, the need to eliminate unnecessary and less-profitable operations is key. Let us see how technology can help.

Enter Cassidi®

Cassidi stands for Computer-assisted Document Interpretation. She is an intelligent agent who can read tens of thousands of EKGs a minute, automatically generate the CPT and the relevant diagnoses, have you review/spot-check and approve the methodology, and then set her free.

Cassidi is priced per provider per month independent of the number of EKGs so you can deploy her systemwide without having to think too hard.

Her EKG reads have been tested in the market, gone through CMS and stood the test of time. She knows how to work when there are procedures on the same day, add modifiers, etc.

Cassidi has potential in other areas of coding as well. The first and simplest step is EKGs. We promise that from the moment the EKG document results are available, Cassidi will be up and running in no more than 48 hours. That is how confident we are in delivering value to you.
