University of Toledo Physicians, LLC Deploys PatientKeeper Charge Capture Software
Multispecialty faculty practice group affiliated with northwestern Ohio academic medical center partners with PatientKeeper to improve charge capture and create an integrated electronic billing workflow
WALTHAM, Mass. – June 20, 2017 – PatientKeeper®, Inc., a leading provider of healthcare applications for physicians, today announced that University of Toledo Physicians, LLC (UTP), a multispecialty faculty practice group affiliated with University of Toledo Medical Center(UTMC) in Toledo, Ohio, has deployed PatientKeeper Charge Capture™ software to streamline inpatient professional charge capture at UTMC and its affiliated skilled nursing facilities.
UTP comprises over 280 physicians and 70 advanced practice professionals in a wide array of specialties and subspecialties. Initially, PatientKeeper has been deployed to the group’s hospitalist, geriatrics and surgery departments, with goals to expand to other departments and clinical services locations.
The organization selected PatientKeeper after an extensive evaluation of commercially available physician charge capture solutions. “We found PatientKeeper to be the most robust and flexible offering to meet our needs,” Gary Lawera, chief operating officer for UTP, said. “The software, whether run on a computer or mobile device, is designed to be intuitive for provider users, and it has a wealth of capabilities that our billing and coding colleagues will appreciate.”
The go-live earlier this month went very smoothly, Lawera said. “The preparation, including planning, education and on-site training, was very well done. Within a day, many physicians and APPs were entering charges into PatientKeeper.”
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.
