In a busy practice, the workflow associated with surgery can be a tremendous burden. The EHR Surgical Workflow Module addresses the needs of busy practices and transforms a complex process into a seamless, all- in-one step-by-step workflow. The WRS EHR Surgical Workflow platform integrates fully with your practice. This allows tasks completed by administrators, billing, the front desk and other areas to support the workflow from preoperative patient management to postoperative patient management.
All activities during the preoperative period can all be communicated:
During the perioperative period subsequent to the operation there is a process for entering CPT codes that were pre-certified without having to look them up all over again. The data is then seamlessly entered into the patient’s previous surgical history.
Covers the date of surgery plus six days and includes:
In the postoperative management period, the provider is queued as to the global period and prompted for the entry of appropriate modifiers if reimbursements are appropriate.
Patient follow ups are recorded:
Care subsequent to the global period:
Informed Consent is properly documented in the patient’s electronic record before the procedure is scheduled. For practices that use the Digital Pen, the process is further streamlined as completed forms are automatically transmitted to the EHR when the pen is docked.
The EHR automatically readies each step of the surgical process, from scheduling to claim submission. It even suggests modifier codes for optimal coding. The Surgical Workflow Queue tracks the global period so that payments for unrelated services during the global period aren’t forfeited. Pre-authorized CPT codes are automatically queued for claim.
