Saint Clare's Health System CIO to Address Benefits of Scripting Technology During Boston Software Systems Webinar

Discusses How Boston WorkStation Has Saved Time and Money, Reduced Risk of Error, by Automating Time-Consuming, Manual Processes

SHERBORN, MA--(Marketwire - June 4, 2007) - Boston Software Systems, the leader in workflow automation technology to the healthcare market, today announced it will host a Webinar highlighting Saint Clare's Health System's success using the Boston WorkStation™ scripting tool to streamline operations and improve efficiency. The June 14 Webinar, "Automating a Path to Savings," will feature Rich Temple, CIO, and John Burdek, clinical analyst-IT, Saint Clare's Health System.

Keeping up with patient information, regulations and back-office tasks is a formidable undertaking for hospitals as they face mounting pressures to cut costs, speed up payments/collections and reduce denials. To accomplish these tasks, Saint Clare's has found scripting technology the most effective approach.

Temple and Burdek will discuss how they have used Boston WorkStation in several capacities to efficiently and accurately automate time-consuming, manual processes, thus eliminating the risk of expensive errors and improving the revenue cycle. They will cite examples of how they've effectively maintained patient records, registration information, human resources documentation and reimbursement forms. The executives will offer specific examples of projects, particularly automating the pre-registration process based on data received from its McKesson PHS scheduling system.

"Each of our applications and systems addresses specific pieces of the revenue cycle. For our IT staff, the challenge is to help these tools work together in a manageable way. We do this with scripting. Any place that I have ever been, any rock that I have looked under with an eye toward improving process, I have seen an opportunity for Boston WorkStation to make a difference," said Temple.
