When I do a surgery, for example a tonsillectomy, before I leave the OR, I create a surgery note and enter the patient’s charges into the system. Before I leave the OR, the bill for the procedure is already at (the Clearinghouse).
ENT Surgery Workflow Queue Prompts and DocumentsIn a busy Head and Neck practice, the workflow associated with surgery can be a tremendous burden. The ENT Surgical Workflow Queue helps ensure critical steps are addressed by helping you manage the process from beginning-to-end:
Addresses all activities prior to the surgery date Manage:
- Medical Clearance
- Scheduling the surgery
- Preoperative testing
- Communications with the operating room
Covers the date of surgery plus six days and includes:
- Entry of the surgical procedure into the patient’s record
- Seamless claim creation
Patient follow ups are recorded
- Visits are recorded
- You are alerted to the end of the global period for billing services
Care subsequent to the global period
- Care is recorded and billed
- Useful for reviewing past surgical cases or cancelled surgeries.
Informed Consent Documentation
The Surgery Workflow Queue ensures Informed Consent is properly documented before the procedure is scheduled and the information is maintained in the patient’s electronic record. ENT-Cloud prompts for the documentation and signed forms can be uploaded to the EHR. For practices that use the ENT-Cloud Digital Pen, the process is further streamlined because completed forms are automatically transmitted to the EHR when the pen is docked.
Fast Accurate Payment
ENT-Cloud automatically readies each step of the surgical process, from scheduling to claim submission. It even suggests modifier codes for optimal coding. The ENT 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.
