EmergeOrtho Meets Quality Improvement Goals with Automated Data Capture
In 2016, four orthopedic practices teamed up to provide comprehensive orthopedic, spine and pain management care. EmergeOrtho has more than 100 orthopedic specialty physicians in 49 offices in 21 counties across North Carolina. As a surgical specialty practice, patient safety is the single most important focus—down to the accurate information in the patient’s chart. That’s why the specialty group turned to Epion Health when it needed to improve clinical data capture for quality-based reimbursement under Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act (MACRA) and the Merit-Based Incentive Payment System (MIPS).
Previously, the group practice manually collected data. With Epion’s digital patient intake solution, clinical data is automated and integrated with their electronic health record. EHR integration empowers patients to review and edit existing personal health information already in the system, while adding information to the record appropriate for their scheduled appointment. Thanks to Epion’s solution, EmergeOrtho met its quality improvement goals, achieving a 4% increase in reimbursement by reducing human error and cost inefficiencies.
Epion’s solution is a great product for us—and would be great for any specialty practice that relies on the most up to date, accurate patient data.
