ADVANCES IN TECHNOLOGY – ELECTRONIC REPORTS ON LINE
The Hernia Institute of Florida is the first center to use MdinTouch to offer its referring doctors, adjustors, and nurse case managers access to their patients’ reports and work status recommendations on line. Dr. Young has implemented this state-of-the-art technology at HIF to improve patient care by allowing electronic transfer of reports. By logging on to the website, www.hernia-institute.com, and clicking on reports, referral sources can view reports that were sent to them, print them, and forward them to appropriate insurance carriers.
Dr. Young states: “Our system is fully HIPAA compliant – it protects the privacy of the patient, while allowing for the efficient transfer of information to improve case management. This leads to less down time for the patients who need to return to work. Our nurse case managers and insurance adjustors love the system because it improves their workflow – they don’t have to waste time calling doctors’ offices for the information they need to process claims, and they can expedite their patients care because they have the appropriate documentation available on their own desktop! This highly efficient system can lead to significant cost savings for the carriers.”
