Our Solutions - Electronic Health Records Systems (EHR)

 

The rising costs of healthcare, the focus on improved outcomes, declining reimbursements and a rapidly changing healthcare environment are driving innovation among providers and payers to improve delivery, quality, and patient satisfaction. 

 

Prevalent delivers a secure, cloud-based SaaS/PaaS platform dedicated to all participants in healthcare, driving a new era of reduced cost, improved quality and greater access.

 

With both its web and tablet (iPad) driven interface, Prevalent has everything you would expect in an EHR system but with an advanced focus on the additional documentation requirements for ICD-10.  It is anticipated that there will be a 20% greater documentation requirement per patient that will increate the amount of time a physician has to spend with a patient by at least 3%.

 

Prevalent is proactive to best manage a physicians time while at the same time utilizing that documentation to ensure the bill generated from that encounter meets all the new critical requirements for adjudication.  

 


 

Many healthcare professionals accustomed to paper-based clinical workflows are finding the shift to electronic health records challenging, feeling it’s little more than an inconvenient requirement – a mandated change with few benefits beyond the government’s incentives. Yet doctor groups that have adopted quality systems with advanced clinical analytics capabilities are seeing major benefits, and conferring them on patients through better, more consistent medical care and treatment.

EHR Systems, Meaningful Use and HITECH Incentives

 

 

Prevalent products comply with all major industry standards

Prevalent is dedicated to ensuring that all its products are built to comply with industry standards. This compliance with standards is key to protecting your investment in our technology and enabling you to meet data integrity and interoperability requirements.

A leader in Certification:

Prevalent EHR and Analytics is among a limited list of companies to receive relevant certifications and has continued this record of leadership by being among the first group to receive ONC-ATCB Stage 1 Certification. You can be assured that it will be among the first to receive Stage 2 and ongoing Certifications as they come on line.

HL-7, HITSP and more:

PrevalentEHR was built with an HL7 integration engine to allow seamless bi-directional integration with billing, pharmacy, laboratory, radiology/PACS and other information systems. Virtually all major healthcare industry standards are supported by Prevalent products including HL7, HITSP, CPT, ICD-9, ICD-10, SNOWMED, SNOWMED-CT, LOINC, NCPDP, DICOM, EDI and XML.

Plug-and-Play support for HIE and NHIN:

As a secure, scalable, interoperable hospital core clinical data repository, Chart Access supports plug-and-play capability to connect with Health Information Exchanges (HIE) and eventually to the National Health Information Network (NHIN), a planned nationwide health information exchange network.

Industry standard Encryption and Security:

PrevalentEHR provides the capability to encrypt patients’ electronic health information into a human unreadable format using the Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) algorithm and digest them with a secure SHA-256 hash values algorithm; PrevalentEHR also provides the capability to decrypt the data with the same algorithms and display them in human readable format.

PrevalentEHR utilizes the Secure Hash Algorithm (SHA), a cryptographic message digest algorithm developed by the National Institute of Standards (NIST) and implements the AES, a NIST specification for the encryption of electronic data. AES is a new cryptographic algorithm that can be used to protect electronic data. Specifically, AES is an iterative, symmetric-key block cipher that can use keys of 128, 192, and 256 bits, and encrypts and decrypts data in blocks of 128 bits (16 bytes).

PrevalentEHR utilizes Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) and HTTPS protocols as protected links to keep data secure. PrevalentEHR sets up and configures SSL through standard Microsoft SSL.

 

 

TIME BENEFITS     FINANCIAL BENEFITS

   

SPECIALISTS spend 50 hours or more in direct patient care per week.     OUTPATIENT facilities that adopt and use EHR over 15 years could have net savings of $142 BILLION.
PRIMARY CARE PHYSICIANS only spend 30-40 hours a week in direct patient care because of heavy paperwork and admin duties.     INPATIENT settings that adopt and use EHR over the same time period experience net savings of $371 BILLION.
NURSES using EHR have seen reductions in documentation time by up to 45%     In 2009, independent physician practices using EHR had almost $50,000 greater total revenue than practices using paper-based systems.
USING COMPUTERS to enter patient data increases the completeness of the information, so staff time spent searching for missing data decreases.     AFTER 5 YEARS of using EHR, practices reported an operation margin 10.1% higher than practices in their first year of EHR use.
       
ENVIRONMENTAL BENEFITS     HEALTH BENEFITS
       

   

EACH PATIENT requires approximately 10-13 pieces of paper and most physicians see 50-99 patients per week.     APPROXIMATELY 4.5 MILLION ambulatory visits related to adverse drug events occur annually in the U.S.
So each physician accumulates around 975 new pages of paper work each week.     ABOUT 400,000 of these instances result in hospitalization.
1000s of tons of paper are consumed by the healthcare industry each year, causing storage issues and environmental harm.     These adverse drug events could be avoided by using EHR to track patient medication history and to flag patients prescribed to several medications.
       

ORGANIZATION

Paper-based records dispersed across different facilities are often incomplete, contributing to unnecessary, repeat resting and treatment. Dispersed records are also inefficient because new providers have to retrieve a patient's charts and notes from multiple offices.     EHR reduces the redundancies across healthcare providers and allows the assembly of a complete record of patient history in one easily accessible file. A complete patient record in digital format makes it easier to generate longitudinal reports that can improve extended care.

SHARING RECORDS

Paper record systems waste valuable time because office staff has to transfer records by fax or email. Because a patient's paper records across healthcare providers aren't stored in a centralized location, it's often difficult to put together a complete history.     With EHR, exchanging information is faster office staff can skip the retrieval and faxing process and transfer records electronically. EHR provides access to complete medical information about a patient, so other providers don't have to fill in partial records.

ACCESSIBILITY

Doctors' access to medical records is limited by location and office hours. This can impact your patients' health in unusual circumstances, such as in an emergency procedure or when vital medication is misplaces.     Web-based EHR provides 24/7 access to patient records and lab results from any location with internet access. Using mobile applications, physicians can access records on-the-go, between appointment or while on rounds.
