Managed Care Organizations|
MDPad applications are designed to help deliver the best possible patient
care as well as the most affordable patient care, while streamlining delivery
and improving communications. Pertinent tools include the following:
||A robust prescription writer with formulary
compliance manager and built in pharmacopoeia
|| Patient data management (demographics, allergies,
problem lists, medications, etc.)
||Charge Capture and Billing
||Group mode feature for multi- provider groups
These tools will improve communication between the managed care company,
the provider and the patient helps with adherence to established protocols
and procedures and a higher standard of care. Messaging and referral systems
will save time and lower costs; while complete and accurate diagnostic
and procedure coding submitted electronically have the potential to streamline
the entire charge capture and billing process as well.
Improvement in the quality of the care delivered can best be facilitated
by the expert knowledge based system, which strives to elevate the standard
of care to the best clinical practice possible. The diagnosis and documentation
support system ensures that in addition to providing the best care that
adequate documentation of the care delivered is also provided.
Optimal formulary compliance can best be delivered by standardizing MDPad's
formulary compliance manager system and taking advantage of the messaging
system for periodic updates and reminders.
MDPad also offers assistance in meeting HEDIS/NCQA standards
Integrated Health System
MDPad provides many potential benefits in addition to providing better
and safer care for patients. Substantial costs saving and efficiency can
be realized by improved formulary compliance, improved adherence to best
clinical practice guidelines, decreased administrative costs, and decreased
drug related adverse events and hospital admissions. This would lead to
increased revenues as well as assist in meeting HEDIS/NCQA standards as
Hospital Based Settings
MDPad facilitates safer and better care while increasing the adoption
of best clinical practices and protocols while substantially lowering
costs. MDPad also provides integration and automation of systems, workflow
and patient information to maximize efficiency and productivity of physicians,
administrative staff and support personnel.
The MDPad charge capture functionality reduces the likelihood of lost
and incomplete charges and rejected items as well as the liability tied
to medical errors. This leads to lower administrative costs and increased
Group connectivity also allows wireless transmission of important patient
information and procedures on a real time basis.
Academic Medical Institutions
MDPad facilitates the adoption of best clinical practices as well as provides
focused and real time medical education with the potential to significantly
improve the quality of care and markedly lower the cost of delivering
Computerized order entry systems have been employed at institutions of
higher learning to document the potential impact on prescribing practices
in the inpatient setting. The premise being to reduce medical errors,
improve quality of care and to reduce costs by providing feedback and
suggestions to the physician as each order is entered.
Most noteworthy researchers who completed a study at the Brigham and
Women's Hospital in Boston concluded that computerized physician order
entry, supplemented by clinical decision support, is a powerful tool for
improving physician prescribing. In addition they concluded that a partnership
between the computer and the physician, merges the best talents of each,
can play a major role in preventing adverse events, promoting optimal
care decisions, and reducing the cost of care.
MDPad advances this approach one very important step forward by providing
remote data entry, charge capture, billing and dictation capabilities.
In addition to personal and professional organizational needs (i.e. calendar
and phone numbers) and administrative applications such as scheduling,
training and teaching needs within the institution.
