“Just weeks after implementation across our 21 facilities, Picis LYNX E/Point enabled us to increase net revenue by nearly $9 million by improving charging accuracy, efficiency and compliance,” said Reggie Allen, RN BSN system director, quality and clinical operations at CHRISTUS Health. “Like Picis, we believe in implementing technologies that merge clinical and financial operations of our hospital – and most significantly, in the ED, where the cost and care is most intense.”

Inova Fair Oaks is the first hospital in the Inova Health network to convert its ED to Picis' electronic documentation system, a move that radically streamlines the management of 42,000 emergency cases annually and the countless reams of paper they generated. Eliminating heft and hassle are just two of the goals. "The difference (with Picis) is like night and day."

“Our emergency department had an initial return on investment in six months by saving $175,000 in coding and dictation costs a year when we reassigned our five member dictation team to other departments. Plus, when we began capturing charge data electronically at the point of care, we doubled our capture of charges monthly from $800,000 to $1.6 million. This also helps reduce denials for reimbursement and allows us to bill payers faster.”

“When we came up live we finally had the tools to analyze how we were doing things and that’s when our process improvement really started. Before when you are on paper, it is very difficult to measure. This allowed us to see what we were doing real time.”

“The hospital has already recouped its investment by creating online charting documents and automating scheduling and preference cards.”

Improve Efficiency In the OR

“Within 9 months of going live, we reduced the billing days from 3-5 days to 1 day and cut average late charges by $117,000 a month. Our OR revenue has jumped 35 percent and is rising steadily. That is enough to keep us impressed with the system for a while!”

Long before the government stimulus package for EMRs, Catholic Medical Center in Manchester, NH, found that installing Picis' ED PulseCheck as its EMR was well worth the price. In one year the hospital increased its revenue from the ED by 48% thanks to a host of improvements. "We utilized the EMR to assist us in capturing lost charges. The system was set up in such a way that through the completeness of the documentation we were able to let the system help us identify the charges that we could capture."
