Information exchange tools: Asthmatic patients can have a number of healthcare professionals involved in their care, often including pediatricians, primary care providers, pulmonologists and allergists. With clinical information exchange, the care team can electronically share data stored in their individual systems — such as the results of a patient’s lung function test or medication changes — to better track patient progress.
Patient engagement tools: Patients can also take an active role in data sharing by using Greenway Patient, an online portal that allows them to securely send their health records from one provider to another.
Electronic health records (EHRs): Data sharing is only truly useful when providers maintain complete records. That’s why Greenway Health’s EHRs include clinical templates to help providers capture data on asthma decompensation, asthma exacerbation and other asthma-related visits — without distracting attention from patients.
Eligibility verification: Managing asthma costs Americans more than $56 billion per year, leaving the growing number of patients covered by high-deductible health plans vulnerable to increasing out-of-pocket expenses. Greenway Health’s financial tools help patients and providers control costs by delivering financial insights during clinical encounters; features include insurance eligibility screening and formulary checks to confirm coverage before ordering tests, prescribing medication or making other care decisions.
Medical billing solutions: Greenway Health also offers revenue cycle management (RCM) services to help practices maintain profitability even when treating asthma and other traditionally low-revenue-generating conditions. RCM services include billing functions such as sending collections letters and processing payments, as well as proactive analysis of financial performance to identify opportunities for improvement, including training staff on best practices for collecting payment.
