Too often, patients are under-educated and under-prepared for scheduled procedures and visits. This lack of preparation and engagement can lead to no-shows, late starts, poor patient experience, suboptimal outcomes, and negative financial impact. In fact, avoiding just one cancellation for a surgical or outpatient procedure can save, on average, $2,000 in set-up materials and time.

Despite the potential cost savings, most patients continue to receive instructions in the form of lengthy paper documentation, which contributes to poor procedure preparation and high no-show rates.

Read this white paper to learn how hospitals like Bronson Methodist Hospital and Mount Sinai colonoscopy center use patient pre-arrival communication processes to help them reduce no-shows by up to 30% while also improving clinical outcomes and patient satisfaction.

Title: EHR in ASCs: Big Trends Emerging
Source: CernerCerner CMYK Standard horizontal

Electronic health records are revolutionizing health care delivery at hospitals and physician offices. Now ambulatory surgery centers are seeing the benefits of EHR technology and are searching for the appropriate technology for their site.

This won't be an easy road for ASCs as the federal government offers financial incentives to hospitals and physician offices for meeting Meaningful Use criteria through the use of EHR technology, but not to ASCs. However, surgery centers still need to report quality measures to Medicare, and an EHR can make this process more efficient.

This white paper, "EHR in ASCs: Big Trends Emerging," examines the big themes in health care data collection today and how ASCs can take advantage of evolving technology to meet regulatory requirements, improve efficiency, lower costs and ultimately provide better patient care.
