Montefiore St. Luke’s Cornwall (MSLC) announced today that MSLC is live on Artifact Health’s mobile physician query solution to improve workflow for its clinicians and expedite the accurate coding of patient records. Artifact was able to accommodate the hospital’s requirement to implement, integrate with Meditech’s EHR system and go live within four weeks.
Optimizing the Physician Query Process for Physicians
Traditionally, the query process is onerous and time-consuming for physicians, clinical documentation specialists, and medical coders. With Artifact Health’s mobile query platform, physicians can respond to a query compliantly in seconds with as few as three taps on their smartphone. By engaging physicians with a faster and easier process, Artifact drives improvements in hospital and physician coding accuracy and publicly reported quality measures, while reducing physicians’ administrative burden.
Patient Safety & Quality of Care Impact for MSLC
Artifact Health’s HIPAA-compliant, cloud-based platform was integrated with MSLC’s electronic medical record system, Meditech. “Artifact rose to the occasion when we requested that their solution be implemented in four weeks,” said Glynis Cowart, Director of Information Technology for MSLC. “Our CDI and HIM staff are really looking forward to this partnership.”
“Patient safety and quality of care is driven from codes that stem from provider documentation,” said Laura Berberich, Director of Health Information Management for MSLC. “Quick and comprehensive responses to CDI and coding queries will allow our hospital to paint a more accurate picture of patient care. We are excited at the opportunity to make this traditionally burdensome process easy and efficient for our providers.”
