Mobile Alerts to Improve Workflow

A major provider of physician services, Geographic information science (GIS) systems, has joined the AlertMD network.

AlertMD’s workflows are provided using a mobile platform and a rules engine and they deliver the following value:

  • Readmission — How about an alert to your team when a full risk patient who was admitted 11 days ago is in the ED so your team can be part of the admission decision? Readmission penalty is 50% more in the 2015 fiscal year. These alerts are expected to add value equalling around $800,000 for an average hospital.

  • Case Mix/Utilization for Risk Pools – How would your efficiencies change if you could give your case managers a pro-active, real-time, mobile alert when utilization approaches the GLOS based on the real-time DRG? Prioritize the UM review list by the highest impact first and much more. Care coordination alerts and more. Expected ROI = $3M/ year/ hospital.

  • Charge Capture for Employed Physicians – We deliver a 7-16% increase in pro fee revenue and a 9 day acceleration in cash flow to your employed practice – $14,000 per physician/month in aggregate.

  • CCM Solutions – Are you ready to capture $49.76/patient/month starting 1/1/2015 for the CCM codes? If 10% of an average employed practice patients converted to CCM enhanced care per CMS guidelines, you could add $18M/ year to your revenue. Ask us how we support your burden of proof for such enhanced care.

Your practice can benefit from several customizable, real-time, mobile alerts that are timely and actionable.

Got Risk? You Need AlertMD

MSSP, Full and Partial Risk, Bundles – the flavor does not matter – if you are taking risk, you need new and better tools.

Here is a small sample of what we can do:

  • Readmission - How about an alert to your team when a full risk patient who was admitted 11 days ago is in the ED so your team can be part of the admission decision? Readmission penalty goes up to 3% (from 2% today) on 10/1/2014.

  • Case Mix/Utilization for Risk Pools - How would your efficiencies change if you could give your case managers a pro-active, real-time, mobile alert when utilization approaches the GLOS based on the real-time DRG? Prioritize the UM review list by the highest impact first and much more.

  • VTE/Hospital-acquired condition alerts - How about we alert your team 12-24 hrs before the risk of a complication doubles? Payment for inpatient stays goes down by another 1% on 10/1/2014 if there are hospital-acquired complications.

  • Care coordination alerts - Real-time notifications to discharge planners, nursing home supervisors and more. Benefit from several customizable, real-time, mobile alerts that are timely and actionable to help you manage risk better.
