The healthcare documentation process continues to evolve, and regulatory, financial, and operational factors are putting pressure on healthcare organizations to make significant improvements to their clinical documentation processes. As the demand for more accurate and timely documentation increases, Health Information Management professionals (HIM) need to find ways to improve the clinical documentation processes at the institutions where they work.
Many healthcare organizations today are looking for ways to become financially and operationally efficient. Over the years AHDPG has helped numerous organizations reduce costs, improve quality and optimize operational efficiency by looking at a multitude of factors impacting organization’s healthcare documentation creation costs. This handy tool is the first step in a process and can help your organization evaluate whether outsourcing transcription can help reduce your overall costs, improve the quality of your healthcare documentation and improve operations.
Use this financial and operational calculator to help you determine the return-on-investment if you move forward with the use of medical scribes.
Enter the number of providers*, annual costs* and the amount of time* per day spent by each provider on the activities that could be eliminated by leveraging medical scribes. Then enter the estimated cost* of the medical scribe specialist.
The result will show the potential time saved by each clinician per day as well as the number of additional patient visits per day each clinician could see if they used 100% of that additional time saved to see more patients. Then see the potential revenue impact of seeing more patients against the cost of providing the medical scribe(s).
