Psychiatric Nurse Practitioners Emr System

  1. 1. Why you should demand it<br />Psychiatric Nurse Practitioners' EMR system<br />
  2. 2. Electronic Medical Records<br />There are at least 20-30 different types of EMR systems available.<br />Cover every scope of Medicine / Healthcare / Information Technology / electronic Billing / electronic Prescriptions, etc.<br />Support Small (single physician practice) to Large (multidimensional Hospital conglomerates) Organizations.<br />Offer a variety of methodology such as stand-alone system, SaaS and Web-based / Web-driven support.<br />Vary in range of finance / initial investment / maintenance plans and per-use.<br />Vary in complexity / productivity / simplicity / practicality and expandability (supporting the projected volume growth)<br />
  3. 3. Psychotropic Medications in the geriatric population<br />Need to be effectively monitored (incidence / weekly / monthly / quarterly).<br />Need to address and meet regulatory guidelines, regulations and rules (FDA / Medicare/Medicaid / OBRA).<br />Need to be documented, changed, titrated and altered for efficacy / regulatory guidelines.<br />Need to be scrutinized for drug-drug interaction, side effects and dosing paradigms<br />Need to address and effectively treat patient’s via measurable testing results, psychiatric evaluations and behavioral issues<br />
  4. 4. Nursing Homes<br />Strict guidelines and regulations for psychiatric residents on ANY psychiatric medications.<br />Adequate, proper and complete detailed documentations for any and all issues / medications / changes / testing / evaluations and maintenance pertaining to the psychiatric residents on psychiatric medications.<br />Financial repercussions from failed / flagged / sited surveys.<br />Organized charting and clear readable treatment plans / prescriptions / reviews / and notes.<br />
  5. 5. So why this specialized EMR system?<br />To address specific benefits (practically, simply, accurately, efficiently and profitability).<br />To provide specific technological advantages (UC, independence, congruity, accessibility, visibility, validity, security and productivity)<br />To simplify<br />Patient information processing<br />Documentation<br />Total view of the patients treatment history<br />Coding: properly / accurately / safely<br />Logs / Testing / Results / Scheduling / medication management<br />
  6. 6. Requirements and Billing<br />Clear differentiations of the CPT codes available<br />Valid and precise order of ICD-9/10 procedure codes<br />Completion of the required information necessary to comply with the appropriate coding.<br />Acceptable wording / phrasing / descriptions / assessments needed to match data collected / behaviors observed.<br />Correct time values and assessment activities for proper revenue / billing.<br />Chart accuracy / accessibility / relevance<br />
  7. 7. What are the differences between Psych-EMR and all others?<br />More focused on necessary information, rather than so much superfluous data collection requirements<br />More specific/specialized forms that provide a better work-flow methodology<br />Independent from constant/needed internet connectivity<br />Implements a BI type analysis via GUI driven Dashboard views.<br />Smarter data analysis specific for the specialty<br />Innovative technological implementations<br />
  8. 8. What really is the true value<br />Aside from all listed and well documented values that dictate having any EMR or electronic record system implemented can provide.<br />Accuracy for data needed to increase Medicare billing legitimately and without fear of an audit<br />Availability and accuracy of the needed data for any type of audit to pass – Medicare / OBRA / State surveys / FDA<br />Better reminder system for testing / GDR / re-initial evaluations and so much more.<br />
  9. 9. Value cont.<br />Efficiency in gathering patient information and documentation, regardless of location, environment and accessibility<br />Faster work flow for evaluation turn-around-time<br />HIPPA compliant method of data dissemination and storage<br />Easier method for peer-review and collaboration<br />
