After launching our new brand at last year's conference in Boston, we're excited to attend ACHA 2014 in San Antonio!
Like last year, we'll be hosting our Android EHR Challenge where attendees will go head-to-head to complete an encounter using our Android EHR app in the shortest amount of time. There will be three chances to participate, and those with the fastest time for each contest will win a tablet! [cont...]
We are presenting a three-part webinar series to educate health centers about commercial insurance billing. Billing student’s private insurance generates incremental revenue for your health center, so you can maintain or add to the level of services provided to your students. Part one in our series is the “Insurance Billing Round Table” below. In this pre-recorded session, you will learn more about how insurance billing works as several college and university health center representatives participate in a lively Q&A session.
This webinar will help you learn: [cont...]
Eileen Guttman, C.N.P., M.S.N., of Cleveland State University gives a personal account of why they decided to start insurance billing and how they decided to use NueMD to handle it. [cont...]
In 2007, American University health center staff began a search for a Practice Management (PM) system with online scheduling and advanced reporting capabilities. Health Center Director Daniel Bruey headed the software selection process. Because of varied backgrounds of his staff, ease of training was important to Bruey. But the team also wanted technology to enhance the experience for students, and get a holistic view of its operations.
American’s objectives were to find a solution for the health center that would:
- Eliminate wait times and decrease no-shows
- Provide insights to help justify budget and resource requests to the university’s administration office.
"It gives us the ability to not be tied up with paperwork when we need be seeing students." [cont...]
Marilyn: We are a small liberal arts college- under 3,000 students. We're a college and a conservatory. We provide primary healthcare to the students and that involves wellness and sickness, well-woman's care.
Sharon: What I like about the Nuesoft program is the immunization. On our campus about a year ago we had an incident with MMR. We didn't know our students- who had MMR injections or not.
And with the Nuesoft program just recently we started making sure that information was in the immunization area. And so we were able to pull that information off on who had not had those injections on campus without going through the 3,000 charts that we have. And that was wonderful for the nurse and staff.
Marilyn: We also use it for my monthly reports. No only does it give us the numbers in regards to how many patients the providers have seen, it also breaks down what the nurses see in regards to like how many injections, flu-shots besides immunizations. With the providers, it breaks down the type of patients that we see. And that's important in regards to- you look to see how many sick visits you may have vs. well visits.
Sharon: We were using paper and pencil. With this system it's just so user friendly. It's not as many steps. And you get the results that you need. It gives us the ability to not be tied up with paperwork when we need be seeing students.
Marilyn: So that's why we always try to look for a good product. Something that's going to help our department and help the college and actually you know help the students.
Esther Horst: Wooster is a small city. The campus is about two thousand students.
Lori Stine: We have five different doctors that come down. And we also have Ob/Gyn doctors that come down- plus the counselors that we have here, the nutritionists.
Esther Horst: And it helps coordinate all the schedules of the employees and the students to be able to see the employees. And we really appreciate the scheduling abilities of the software.
Lori Stine: Sometimes our counselors' schedules get backed up. And I like the wait-list feature on the program because I can keep track of anybody that needs an appointment sooner. And then when we have a cancellation I can just check the list right on there rather than trying to keep track of it on paper or something. So I found that very helpful.
Esther Horst: We were concerned about training some of our employees. Even the people that were most resistant to computers probably learned to schedule within thirty minutes. And feel very comfortable about it and don't complain. So it's really nice to have an easy working system.
Lori Stine: I like how you can just click on the appointment time and put the name right in. You know, you don't have to remember a lot of different codes to be able to be able to schedule an appointment. It's very easy and fast.
Ester Horst: As far as the immunization module, that allows us to keep track of the students' immunizations and it'll also allow you to pull up records of when the next immunization might be due. Or what they might be lacking.
Lori Stine: I've worked at other places and have used different software. And this has been the easiest one I've ever used.
Oh boy, I didn’t study for that one. The best feature of Nuesoft: making the appointment, looking at past appointment, looking for future appointments- much easier, much quicker, with a couple of key strokes. And being at an university with a shoestring budget, the cost. So the ease of use and the cost are the two things that I think are the best.
Data analysis, much quicker. I can run things myself or have my graduate assistant run them. We can sort things by diagnosis, by month, by different dates, different transactions, different providers- much, much easier.
They’ve been intimate with my computer. You give them the permission; and they go inside to see what’s wrong, what the problem is to help figure it out. They work with both me and our IT department. Our front desk staff, you know. So the client service has been very good.
I’d probably give it a 95%, which as I tell all my patients, 95% chance that it’s going to take are of it, that’s an ‘A’. You’d take that grade in any class because we’re just pushing towards perfection.
A call for celebration!
