EvergreenHealth Deploys PatientKeeper Charge Capture Software to Improve Revenue Cycle Management
Kirkland, Washington hospital uses PatientKeeper to maximize billing accuracy and efficiency
WALTHAM, Mass. – June 18, 2013 – EvergreenHealth recently went live with PatientKeeper® Charge Capture™ software as part of an initiative to streamline workflow for its 800 physicians and improve revenue cycle management at the organization.
EvergreenHealth is a public hospital district and community-based health care organization that operates a 275-bed acute care hospital in Kirkland, Washington. It serves more than 400,000 residents in its primary service area of northern King and southern Snohomish counties.
Charge capture automation is the first phase of EvergreenHealth’s PatientKeeper deployment. The hospital has plans to deploy PatientKeeper Analytics™, PatientKeeper PQRS™, and PatientKeeper Sign-Out™.
PatientKeeper replaces a previously implemented electronic charge capture solution.
PatientKeeper is integrated with EvergreenHealth’s Cerner® system to share patient data and to allow physicians, billers, and coders to launch PatientKeeper Charge Capture and display charge status from within their familiar Cerner environment.
PatientKeeper’s EHR optimization software solutions streamline clinician workflow, improve care team collaboration, and fill functional gaps in existing hospital EHR systems. With PatientKeeper as the “system of engagement” complementing the EHR, clinicians can easily access and act on all their patient information from PCs, smartphones and tablets. PatientKeeper has more than 70,000 active users today. For more information about PatientKeeper, visit www.patientkeeper.com or call (781) 373-6100.
