Rounding Charge Capture: The Latest Technological Innovation from EmCare

Innovative technology improves efficiency of documentation

With hospitals having to coordinate care with so many people and departments, hospital medicine was in need of a solution that quickly relays information from multiple points of care to multiple points of coordination for hundreds of patients each month. EmCare has now launched a proprietary Rounding Charge Capture software that makes inpatient information flow smoothly and simply. This powerful program is actually seven tools in one, providing a comprehensive patient management system for hospitals.

1. Handoff Communication Tool Rounding Charge Capture improves hospitalist-to-hospitalist shift change handoffs by providing real-time automatic sign-out sheets. The sheets are available to all physicians and affiliated clinicians via web access.

2. Patient Locator Tool Appropriate patient information, such as room numbers and assigned hospitalists, can be shared with other hospital departments such as nursing and pharmacy.

3. A.M. Discharge Tool One mouse click identifies which patients should be eligible for discharge the following morning. This function generates a discharge list for all those involved in the discharge process, thereby expediting patient release, optimizing bed availability and improving patient flow.

4. Critical Action Notification Tool This tool highlights patients that need special attention from cross-cover, which can improve the quality of patient care.

5. Rounding List Generator This function quickly builds a rounding list and hand-off sheet for each hospitalist with the click of a mouse.

6. Reporting Tool Easy access to metrics and trends help to identify bottlenecks quickly, improve productivity and effectively manage hospitalist services.

7. Charge Capture Tool Hospitalists can complete billing in just two clicks with a built-in billing system logic that saves time, flags mischarges and improves accuracy.

“EmCare Hospital Medicine has stayed at the forefront of the industry by integrating services and producing effective technology pieces,” said Francisco Loya, M.D., CEO of EmCare Hospital Medicine. “Along with RAP&GO, a technology tool that expedites admissions from the emergency department, and CMORx, an algorithm that enhances billing practices, this Rounding Charge Capture tool offers EmCare partners a suite of technology services that is unrivaled in healthcare.”
