BOSTON PatientKeeper, a physician information systems company, has released a view of what made 2007 a great year for the company. The increase in business was due to industry demand for a single point of access to clinical information, community health information exchange, and revenue cycle management tools, the company experienced growth across all market segments.
According to the company, it bolstered its market leadership position in 2007 by adding six new applications to the Physician Information System. These include four clinical applications:
- PatientKeeper eSignature — enables bi-directional functionality with health information systems allowing physicians to sign clinical notes and orders anywhere from any device.
- PatientKeeper Forms — speeds form completion and accuracy by automatically populating forms with relevant patient information and routing them to the appropriate destination.
- PatientKeeper Sign-Out — automates the transfer of clinical information and tasks at physician shift changes.
- PatientKeeper ePrescription — allows clinicians to write and send a complete prescription with all necessary patient information in just seconds — directly from the PatientKeeper system to the pharmacy.
And two revenue cycle applications:
- PatientKeeper P4P, which satisfies Pay for Performance reporting requirements by helping physicians to gather and submit quality and compliance data along with their charge capture information.
- PatientKeeper Analytics, which extends the business value of PatientKeeper’s industry-leading charge capture suite with powerful “out of the box” reporting and dashboards.
“Our vision has always been to improve the physician experience with technology by developing integration technology and software that truly automates the day in the life of the physician across all locations and settings of care,” said Paul Brient, PatientKeeper president and chief executive officer. “More than anything, our exceptional growth in 2007 is attributable to PatientKeeper’s ability to deliver software that physicians use to save time, improve patient care and improve financial performance.”
