By taking on your care coordination work, athenahealth helps your health system deliver an improved experience for both providers and patients.
Effective care coordination can be the lifeblood of any large health system. It can drive positive clinical, financial, and operational outcomes - yet it's more challenging than ever as patients seek care in an increasing variety of settings.
athenaCoordinator® Enterprise makes it easier for health systems to take control of their care coordination efforts. It delivers a shared view of the patient, secure text messaging and more - but true, streamlined care coordination requires something extra: Expert teams, working at massive scale to take on a health system's administrative labor.
We do the work that gets patients showing up on time, pre-registered, and financially cleared. This streamlined process delivers a "red carpet" experience for patients and creates an unmatched level of efficiency for staff.
- Referral management: We obtain the necessary referral information from a primary care provider when needed, and include it in the registration.
- Pre-certification: Our expert staff contacts insurance payers ahead of time to confirm that medical necessity standards are being met.
- Pre-registration: We work on your behalf to compile all necessary patient information, and contact the patient to confirm and let them know their financial obligation.
These services, combined with our care coordination software and tools, ensure seamless transitions of care across any settings. Patients arrive prepared and aware of their payment; providers get the information they need at the right time; and redundant scheduling paperwork is removed from the process.
