EMSOW Weekly Newsletter – July 9, 2020

July 9, 2020

This week we’ve been working hard to facilitate the imaging workflow for reading radiologists, billing specialists, and nursing home providers. An updated insurance crossover option, enhanced functionality for professional component claims, and more intuitive experience, that’s what you’ll find in the latest version of EMSOW.

If you’re not our customer yet, but would like to know how we can optimize your medical imaging processes, reduce costs, find new customers, or reading physicians, just smash the link to our calendar!

[#20295] "Use response to detect crossover" as the default choice in insurance settings

We have changed the default settings for insurance crossover detection. Now the "Use response to detect crossover" option is set by default. When EMSOW receives an ERA file from an insurance company that automatically forwards secondary claims to additional payers, it can detect if the crossover transfer has been done by analyzing the EDI 835 message. To change the crossover setting, go to Setup > Insurances, double-click an insurance, Select Yes,

    Staying HIPAA compliant with Direct Messaging

    July 6, 2020

    Previously, we discussed tools for staying HIPAA compliant when sharing electronic Protected Health Information (ePHI). Now let’s focus on Direct Messaging, also known as Secure Direct Messaging or merely Direct, because, unlike SFTP or VPNs, it is intended for the use by clinicians only.

    Direct is a part of a federal project for medical information standardization, which started in 2010. Therefore, it is undoubtedly HIPAA compliant, which is crucial for practice. However, it is still in its development and has its pros and cons.

    At first thought, Direct Messaging is quite similar to common email systems, but there are some key differences. First, it can be used only by its specific users. To connect with another Direct user, you must hold an address that looks like, for example, [username]@direct.[facility].com. Therefore, you will be unable to send a message from, say, yahoo.com (in this case you’ll get a notification). On the one hand, such “closeness” may seem inconvenient, because it considerably limits your ability to contact different ...

            Of all of the business types affected by the COVID-19 outbreak, portable imaging companies, nursing home providers, and radiology services are among the hardest hit. In addition to companies reducing their volumes, there's still a high level of general anxiety around the risk of visiting healthcare facilities.

              No one could have predicted how difficult this year has been. The imaging industry faces a pandemic and is still adjusting to its implications. Many businesses did not survive it, and we face an unprecedented decline.

              All this makes us work even harder, and our developers are doing their best to improve the functionality of our platform so that your diagnostic business could overcome any new challenges. This week we have improved our PACS, DICOM, billing functionality, as well as compatibility with other medical software to help you focus on your patients and streamline your daily tasks. In this release, you’ll find just some of this week’s updates.

                June 1, 2020

                HIPAA_image

                HIPAA compliance is an existential issue for medical businesses, especially if they use special-purpose software and mobile applications (e.g. mobile imaging operators). HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act), adopted in 1996, includes a set of legal requirements for protecting sensitive patient information from unauthorized access or leakage. Medical institutions, their staff, and software they use must meet the criteria of physical, network, and process security. Today we will review a few common security tools used to protect data exchange in imaging diagnostics.

                TLS (Transport Layer Security) is an encryption protocol that provides secure data communication between network nodes. It is widely used in web-based applications, as well as email and instant messengers. The primary function of this protocol is to prevent unauthorized access and traffic analyzin...

                      We have improved the search options of EMSOW’s billing portion. Now you can search exams by service ID in the Invoices and Payer Assignment modules. You will find the corresponding search fields in the Options section on the left.

                      20065

                      [#20027] Auto-rotate uploaded JPEG images

                      Previous versions of EMSOW did not recognize the orientation of uploaded JPEG files. Therefore, some files were displayed incorrectly, e.g. a tech sheet that was intended to be viewed vertically might have been displayed horizontally or vice versa. We have fixed this issue, and now all the JPEGs are displayed correctly.

                          Reporting, retrieving, and communicating clinical findings are among the most important capabilities of any diagnostic information system. The conservative way of preparing and storing clinical reports is keeping them as free text. Such reports (digital or paper) are not exactly “unstructured,” as they typically include several mandatory sections: patient demographics, clinical findings, measurements etc. Still, they make it rather difficult to find specific details or compare records made by different specialists.

                            We are glad to inform you that we have released a new version of EMSOW with a focus on interoperability. EMSOW takes EMR integration to a new level by allowing your dispatch to keep full control over incoming exam requests.

                            [#19978] Receive orders through HL7

                            The new version of EMSOW allows you to receive orders from your clients’ EMRs through the HL7 protocol. Open the HL7 Requests module from the upper menu bar. If your EMSOW is integrated with an EMR, incoming requests will be displayed in this module.

                            Here, you can set search parameters to apply a filter to the requests: Status, Created date, Processed date, and Provider. Enter the required parameters, then click Search. Select the required request in the Results window, then click Process. EMSOW will open a service creation wizard to import data.

                                We hope our newsletter finds you well. The COVID-19 pandemic forces radiologists to work from home, and many turn out to be unprepared for it. A cloud solution for image storage with an integrated DICOM viewer and a billing module can help a lot to streamline the new process and stay 100% HIPAA compliant. This week, we have made three new improvements to EMSOW.

                                    Discovered in December 2019 in Wuhan (Central China), a new сoronavirus infection named COVID-19 has rapidly spread to the rest of the world and become the first global pandemic of the 21st century. On January 30, 2020, the World Health Organization (WHO) declared the 2019 Novel сoronavirus (2019-nCoV) disease outbreak a public health emergency of international concern. The official name of the disease was announced on February 11, 2020.

Fatality rate has already exceeded 7% in Italy, and the situation is provoking worldwide panic and affecting businesses, the consumer goods market, and the healthcare industry.

                                    This time we will try to look at the situation from the medical business point of view and discuss the coding and billing aspects of COVID-19. What are the I...

                                      COVID-19: EMSOW Update

                                      HealthExec: “CMS conducted an inspection of a nursing home based in Kirkland, Washington, the Life Care Center, considered to be the epicenter of the state’s outbreak of the new coronavirus, COVID-19.

                                      Over a course of several weeks, two-thirds of the nursing home’s residents fell ill with COVID-19, as well as 47 workers. Overall, 35 people have died from the virus, exemplifying a worst-case scenario of the disease. COVID-19 disproportionately impacts the elderly by causing more severe illness and often requiring intensive care.”

                                          Modality Worklist: A Brief Introduction for Beginners

                                          Check out our introductory article about the Modality Worklist on Medium. The Modality Worklist (or MWL) is a feature of the DICOM protocol that allows you to transfer procedure lists to be performed from a PACS server to your diagnostic equipment. Being a comprehensive yet user-friendly and intuitive solution, EMSOW supports this functionality.

                                          We have decreased the risk of human error in the Technologist portal. Now, if you attach images to studies by using the drag-and-drop function and the patient name in the images does not match that in the dispatch entry, the system will warn you with a confirmation window.

Now, you can group your images by Study UID, attached studies, and DICOM studies (default). Previously all the images were automatically arranged by Study UID.

                                            “Extended functionality” – that’s how this week’s updates can be put into two words. We have improved referring facility records management, and updated the reading rules module to add support for conditions based on the date of service. Moreover, we have improved the transportation coding functionality. If you are a portable X-ray company and not our customer yet, book a demo and take a look at EMSOW in action (check out the “Schedule a demo” button on our website).

                                            We have added new columns to the Referring Facility module so that you could manage your referring facility records more efficiently. Now you can display the following parameters for them: Short name; Full name; Account; Ordering facility; Billing settings; Contract; Contacts; Study groups.

                                            You can add the corresponding columns to the Results pane or remove them from it by clicking the “arrow” button to the left of each column.

                                            Today, rapidly developing healthcare technologies inspire more players to enter the market of diagnostic services. A lot of new solutions are now quite affordable – from wireless connections and secure PACS to compact portable machines. Some companies even create transducers which can be connected to a smartphone!

                                            However, this encourages competition among medical businesses. The competition leads to an increase in quality-to-price ratio and makes physicians with vast experience reframe their views on management and reconsider their diagnostic methods. Innovations are no substitute for the medical expertise, and still, a lot of healthcare enterprises with decades of practice and spotless reputation become driven from the market by younger and smaller entrepreneurs, who have adopted new technologies.

                                            As an example, we can mention modern ultrasound systems, which are currently gainin...

Now you can view these details in the Order Information section of the Processing module. The number of services is displayed near the icons, which refer to the service status.

                                                In addition to our previous update (#19561), now you can override multiple insurances at once, on the basis of the service location zip code. It can be either a facility’s or patient’s zip, depending on the PoS code.

                                                Also, we have changed the directory of this setting. To access it, go to the Setup menu, click Rules, and select Insurance Overrides.

                                                  Last week, our developers focused on improving insurance settings and the Clearing module. With the latest version of EMSOW, you’ll get more flexibility for automatic replacement of insurances and ERA management.

                                                  By default, past due and final patient statements generated by EMSOW include a notice page, reminding that the payment is past due. If such reminders are undesirable, you can create statements without the notice pages by selecting the “Do not include notice pages in pastdue and final account statements” option in the billing company settings (Setup / Billing / Billing companies).

                                                      Electronic Health Records (EHR) make it much easier to manage patient records by systematizing and making them more accessible, searchable, and secure. Apparently, EHRs are not free from shortcomings. Some clinicians reveal user-unfriendliness or lack of interoperability. However, all these downsides are specific to particular systems, while the number of EHR vendors in the USA is over 1,100 as of today. The adoption rate also looks impressive. According to the National Electronic Health Records Survey (2015), 87% of physicians were using EHR. This suggests that at least the system has its advantages.

                                                      Originally, the electronic health record technology was designed for billing, but gradually practitioners revealed more and more of its features.

                                                      Now, EHRs are successfully used for administrative and clinical purposes. They are well-st...

                                                        [#17866] Add new facility and doctor records while creating or editing orders and services

                                                        Now you can add a new referring doctor, facility or rendering provider while scheduling an exam, even without going to setup modules. For example, in the Edit service window, click on the “plus” button to the left of the Referring doctor field. In the window that opens, enter the details of the new referring physician, then click Save. The same can be done for referring facilities and rendering providers.
