NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - Sep 25, 2012) - Nightingale Informatix Corporation (TSX VENTURE: NGH), one of Canada's leading Electronic Medical Records companies, partners with Fluent Medical to create iPatient™ Anesthesiology, a powerful anesthesiology-specific solution that captures charges more efficiently and helps eliminate lost or missing charges and increase revenue. In addition, anesthesiologists can easily document case details and procedure types, surgery information and anesthesia times.
iPatient Anesthesiology's intuitive, visual workflow is designed around the surgery schedule that reflects the simplicity of a paper-based process. This process is still commonly used by many anesthesiologists, meaning they can use iPatient with little or no training. Adding diagnoses, charges, times and modifiers is as effortless as clicking on a list of commonly used items that are grouped into standard categories. In addition, there is a fully searchable library of all diagnosis and charge codes as well as a crosswalk to automatically bring in corresponding ASA codes. iPatient also allows various role assignments such as anesthesiologist, CRNA and biller, all with multiple access levels. Anesthesiologists working in teams can not only see their colleagues' surgery schedules, they can also add times for those involved in the same procedures, improving overall care coordination. Finally, from an auditing perspective the solution satisfies CMS PQRI reporting requirements and improves coding compliance.
iPatient syncs instantaneously between desktop and mobile versions. Mobile devices currently supported include iPhone™, iPad™ and iPod® touch. Additional platforms such Android™ and Blackberry® will be supported shortly. Access from any device is protected by iPatient's HIPAA-compliant security at all times.
