A breakthrough approach to care coordination
Today, the health care industry relies on conventional methods of care coordination, rife with inefficiencies and errors. athenaCoordinator offers a solution.
This cloud-based care coordination model streamlines the entire order process, addressing the issues that can frustrate health system leaders, strain resources, and threaten the quality of care.
athenaCoordinator simplifies the transmission and receipt of orders, and enables the easy flow of patient information across the care continuum. The resulting benefits include:
A sustainable care coordination model
Recent history indicates that, when it comes to improving the coordination of care , health information exchanges (HIEs) don’t work for the long term. The reason is simple: Caregivers receive no incentive to participate and share data.
athenaCoordinator addresses this shortcoming by acknowledging the effort, value and efficiencies that sharing patient information brings to care coordination.
A better way to coordinate care
With athenaCoordinator’s simplified order transmission, caregivers using the athenaClinicals® EHR send physician orders right from their workflow. Facilities that receive orders (hospitals, labs, imaging centers, surgical centers, and more) get clean, legible order information, and are clearly identified in provider workflow as an “in-network” athenahealth organization.
For facilities seeking additional ways to save time and reduce costs, athenahealth teams take on insurance pre-certification and patient pre-registration work.
In sharp contrast to traditional care coordination approaches, athenaCoordinator doesn’t demand the measurable expense and administrative efforts often associated with those methods. Facilities pay a nominal $1 fee for each order they receive—nothing more.
This innovative, cost-effective care coordination model delivers benefits across the entire care continuum—with improved patient care the desired end result for all.
