“The goal of deploying an EHR is not to simply replicate the old paper
charting system or reproduce an inefficient workflow in a digital
format, but to improve workflow leading to improved patient outcomes,”
said Tom
, CEO and founder of HSTpathways. “A great user experience
maximizes physician time with patients and delivers better financial
results for ASC organizations. A big selling point for EHRs is real-time
data collection to drive efficiencies across the entire ASC
organization. Operational decision-making is facilitated through data
collection and analysis, which can directly impact revenue capture
opportunities and cost savings.”

HST is a recognized market leader for directly embedding specialized
clinical workflows into an ASC EHR to enhance usability and efficiency
and improve patient care. It was the first to introduce an ASC EHR that
provides concurrent charting, allowing clinicians to simultaneously
document at all times in all areas of the patient care documentation
process. This provides real-time communications about patient
activities, potential risks, and treatment indicators.

eChart 2.0 Cost Savings and Benefits to ASCs:

  • Accommodates the unique and flexible workflow of an ASC practice
  • Offers accurate case costing to leverage in negotiations with payers
    and for supply chain management
  • Improves patient outcomes and patient satisfaction by ensuring that
    clinicians have access to the right clinical data at the right time in
    the care process
  • Eliminates direct costs associated with the storage, retrieval, and
    filing of paper charts
  • Enables the concurrent charting of multiple clinicians to document on
    the same patient chart at the same time, in the same workflow
  • Allows customized views and charts based on the physician and
    specified procedure
  • Offers a modular charting design that can be easily modified to align
    with the ASC’s particular workflow
  • Less clinician and staff time spent manually gathering data for
    external reporting requirements
  • Streamlines and automates workflow to maximize efficiency
