This month, our guest blog comes from Chase Pattison, Chief Marketing Officer at Entrada Health
Preserve the Personalized Patient Experience
Today, providers who prefer to dictate are challenged to meet the data reporting requirements of meaningful use (MU) and the forthcoming transition to ICD-10. As a result, traditional dictation workflows are changing to meet the need for more structured, template-based medical documentation. However, to ensure the most legally defensible, audit-proof clinical record and to preserve the personalized patient experience, documentation still must tell an accurate and unique patient story.
Entrada Mobile Documentation for Apple or Android devices empowers providers with a simple, efficient way to dictate the personalized narrative — chief complaint, HPI, review of systems, physical exam, assessment, plan, and more — that completes the medical record, while preserving necessary structured data.

In the history of meaningful use, never has a proposed rule become a final rule without changes. The CMS proposal issued May 20 offering flexibility in the use of certification editions and stages of reporting may be the exception, given that it was issued to make 2014 reporting more manageable.
But “manageable” and “flexible” by federal rulemaking standards can mean “complicated” and “confusing” by everyday standards. Providers understandably have many questions about the proposal and how it will affect them. Below are key areas in which Greenway has been fielding provider questions on the new proposal while awaiting the final rule expected late this summer.
If the proposed changes take effect, how will they affect the stage of meaningful use I am reporting on in 2014?
The year in which an eligible provider (EP) began meaningful use reporting has historically determined that EP’s reporting requirements in subsequent years. For example, providers who achieved two years of Stage 1 beginning in 2011 or 2012 would be required to move to Stage 2 in 2014.

In a perfect world, practices would receive payment from patients on time with only one bill. Unfortunately, more often than not, we’re reminded that this is not a perfect world and most customers don’t pay their bill on time. On average, only 40% of customers pay between the 30- to 90-day range leaving 60% of your practice’s payments unaccounted for. The more time office staff spends trying to collect internally, the more of their day-to-day responsibilities may be neglected…and let’s be honest, no one really wants to call and ask patients about their past-due payments.
Fortunately for Greenway customers, there’s a solution – and someone else to make those calls for you! Transworld Systems, a new Greenway Marketplace partner, is taking the hassle of collections away from your employees.
This month, our guest blog comes from Brad McDaniel, business development manager at Transworld Systems.
