SCI Solutions Releases Latest Version of Flagship Enterprise Scheduling Platform

Schedule Maximizer® v36 Delivers Surgical Enhancements, Broader EMPI Integration and Patient Engagement Features

CAMPBELL, CA--(Marketwired - June 25, 2013) -  SCI Solutions, the industry's leading provider of order/referral management and provider network scheduling software, today announced new capabilities for its widely-deployed Schedule Maximizer® platform.

Schedule Maximizer is a comprehensive patient and resource scheduling solution flexible enough to be deployed in a centralized, de-centralized or hybrid patient access model. Advanced rules and workflow engines enable users to search across multiple entities and locations finding ideal appointments for patients, providers and caregivers while ensuring that clinical appropriateness, regulatory compliance, payment rules and preference needs are met for patients and providers. The rules engine also supports post-discharge care coordination, preventing avoidable readmissions and removing hand-off errors during care transitions.

"We believe the ability to proactively schedule patient cases and resources across the community provider network is essential to reducing gaps in care and containing leakage, forming the connective tissue for tomorrow's leading accountable care networks," said Joel French, president and CEO of SCI Solutions. "Schedule Maximizer offers clients platform-agnostic access to information, applications and processes, liberating end-users from their dependence on proprietary technology applications that were designed for use inside a discrete entity instead of across a network or community of care."

Highlights of SCI's Schedule Maximizer v36 center on more flexible scheduling of surgical resources for clients, including automatic search overrides allowing schedulers to see available slots simultaneously for rooms reserved for exclusive use by the surgeon, as well as other open rooms in order to find the best option for both the patient and health system. This new search capability is also available in SCI's physician self-service portal. Highly customizable patient schedule reports provide patient-friendly itineraries. Integration with multiple third party and proprietary enterprise-master-patient-index systems extends Schedule Maximizer's interoperability.
