6 Benefits of Updating Your Clinical Documentation Technology

The profitability and success of a hospital or private practice relies on accurate, timely and compliant clinical documentation. Up-to-date clinical documentation allows your practice to claim what has been earned, down to every penny.

Updating your clinical documentation technology can improve your medical practice’s organization, management, and distribution of documentation. This is important for any practice, but especially for practices with heavy transcription needs, such as behavioral health clinics. Read on to find out what makes Fast Chart’s technology new and improved.

Our Clinical Documentation Technology

At Fast Chart, we provide cloud-based technology with seamless integration. Our platform is powered by M*Modal. The following is a list of ways that our technology has advanced beyond older platforms:

  • M*Modal’s Speech Understanding technology far surpasses the speech recognition challenges of the past.
  • The system is based on a library of nearly 200,000 voice patterns. Accents and subspecialty information will no longer be an issue.
  • It lends a contextual understanding of a doctor’s spoken narrative, not just the individual words. Now, doctors can speak in a more conversational manner.
  • The Plug-and-Play technology allows doctors to dictate from anywhere.
  • Spoken and typed words can be interpreted into Clinically Actionable Data (CAD). For example, a dictation could be translated into a call for a prescription.
  • Integrates with most popular EHR/EMR providers.
  • Compatible with all input devices (computers, smartphones, tablets)

Benefits of Upgrading

Now that you’ve read the specs, you may still be asking: how does it really benefit my practice? No matter how many features we list, it all comes down to your practice’s specific needs and concerns regarding clinical documentation. Is your practice’s profitability being robbed by outdated technology? Are you having difficulty collaborating between the different parties to complete your documentation? Is government reform, a changing payer mix, and declining reimbursements making it hard to make profits? The following is a list of benefits to updating your clinical documentation technology.

  1. The landscape of the healthcare industry is ever changing. Initiatives like Meaningful Use are making it more difficult to transcribe while matching all requirements.
  2. Reduced costs. The web-enabled technology has no upfront cost. Additionally, the capital costs associated with acquiring technology and the expense of upgrades and scalability planning are reduced with this web-based platform.
  3. Collaboration benefits. The platform works among clinicians across multiple channels and integrates with other EHR systems.
  4. Improves the quality of care and patient safety. This technology and Fast Chart as a whole is compliant with HIPAA regulations, the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, and the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health Act. We also offer HIPAA-compliant disaster recovery.
  5. Improves overall productivity. Due to the fluency of transcription, the transcriptionist’s productivity is maximized. The web-based reporting is capable of providing both detailed and summary reporting of the transcriptionists’ productivity as well.
