How to Reduce Errors and Increase Staff Productivity

Presenters: Alison Beber & Kylie Mills Manual processes result in the same mistakes done over and over again. Automation has allowed us to eliminate everyday tasks, reduce staff errors and provide perspective to the decision making process throughout the organization. See how Ortho Northeast has implemented solutions to streamline tedious tasks and improve current operations through the provision of additional information provided by automated reports using GE Centricity data. Through automation in your practice, you can now focus on improving processes rather than doing the process itself. Click the link below to view a copy of the presentation!

Flip or Flop – Renovate Your Centricity PM/EMR to Make the Most of Your Data

Presenters: Cyndi McNutt & Alison Beber Every business must consider their own external and environmental forces when creating their best workflows. Better performing practices track many individual metrics that are relevant to their specific organization, going well beyond the standard industry benchmarking data. Medical practices have far too many inefficient and expensive workflows using complicated data. See how Orthopaedics Northeast (ONE) has simplified staff reports and management dashboards that reported daily, weekly or monthly without "running" reports. Participants will see a number of examples that show how our practice has used customized EMR forms and PM data to improve workflows. See how we have utilized front office staff to capture health history thus freeing up expensive real estate in the exam rooms. The presenters will demonstrate how we have incorporated the use of automated tools vs manual tools that can save [...]

Data Mine Craft: What to Build

Presenters: Mona Reimers & Mike Baeske Beware!  The complicated and tricky workflows necessary to run a medical practice vary widely and if the wrong solutions are selected, any business could find itself way behind in the race for survival.  This is the first of two sessions that will provide examples and instruction on how to use SQL Server (a software program most practices already own) to create unique reporting tools that will banish dreaded re-work or completely eliminate the most evil antagonist - manual reporting.  Practice managers often feel that they are fighting monstrous regulations and villains who plot to drive up costs at every turn.  Running and rerunning reports to compile data is expensive, painful, time consuming, and often fall short of what is really needed to keep processes lean and the bottom line healthy.  Fear not!  The solutions are [...]
