Improved patient document management and bill tracking

November 6, 2020

Time to streamline your patient document management!

EMSOW updates patient document management. Mobile imaging businesses, correctional facilities, and radiology providers take benefit from state-of-the-art cloud PACS, a zero-install DICOM Viewer with a built-in set of customizable report templates, as well as a robust system for patient scheduling, technologist dispatching, and billing. Another opportunity we offer is image interpretation by a trusted radiologist licensed in your state.

[#20859] Document management: send service documents to any email or fax

Previously, you could send service documents by email or fax only to the referring doctor or facility (provided that their email address or fax number had been entered in the referring doctor or facility settings). With this update, we give you more flexibility by allowing you to send service documents to an arbitrary email or fax. Just t...

    EMSOW Weekly Newsletter – October 30, 2020

    October 30, 2020

    Many imaging professionals consider that all PACS providers offer the same.

    However, there's something that makes EMSOW entirely different. On our platform, you can get your images read by board-certified radiologists licensed in your state. As for standard features, such as cloud storage, dispatching, and DICOM viewer, we improve them on a weekly basis based on our customers’ feedback – so if you would like to build an optimal software suite for your business, ask us how!

    This week, we have updated our draft reporting functionality (please see the description below). If you would like to simplify and optimize your imaging workflow and cut your costs, check out our website!

    [#20866] Load the last saved report draft from any study or the same study

    Did you know that EMSOW can automatically fill in your report template with what was entered in the patient’s previous study? This can save you a lot of time when it comes to filling out patient consultation reports.

    Now we’ve decided to go further and given our users an ability to choose whether to pull...

To make use of this new feature, double-click into the necessary billing connector (Setup → Billing → Billing Connectors) and enable the allow sending claims without a payer address checkbox.

      Sending X-ray images for reading through Teleradiology Solutions

      October 21, 2020

      Teleradiology is the transfer of medical images via information technologies. It has a long history (much older than the Internet). But before the 1990s it was not widely used because of the expense, inefficiency, and poor image quality. Today, the development of IT has reversed this trend. Now teleradiology guarantees an increase in imaging procedures by up to 6–12% annually.

      If you deal with X-rays, ultrasounds, or CTs, you surely know about DICOM, PACS, and RIS, and utilize these tools in your practice. These means of image transfer are quite common. However, their convenience and security vary considerably...

        [#20754] Arrange diagnosis codes on claims in the same order as they are entered

        Previously, EMSOW did not keep the order of ICD-10 codes that were entered when scheduling a procedure, which caused problems with billing for certain procedures that require a certain diagnosis order. From now on, the codes will be arranged just as entered initially!

        For example, here’s a case that was coded via Processing:

        Dear providers!

        This week we have put out seven updates improving EMSOW’s billing, dispatching, and task management functionality. That’s what you’ll find in the latest version of EMSOW.

        [#20668] Export data from the Dispatch module
        The latest version of EMSOW’s Dispatch module allows you to export the necessary data to an Excel spreadsheet. Click the Export button on the module's toolbar and you will see a pop-up window where you can choose what data needs to be exported. And finally, click OK to get your report!

        [#20758] Improvements in the Referring Contracts module
        We have upgraded the data grid in the Referring Contracts module – now it shows contract terms and discounts, thus sparing you from having to double-click into each contract to see the contract details.

        [#20749] Import of exam reasons from DICOM

        We ❤️ interfacing and have helped many teleradiology companies connect with their clients via DICOM. This small update extends your options for DICOM tag mapping: now you can automatically populate the Reason for exam field in EMSOW from DICOM tag 0040,1400 (RequestedProcedureComments).

        Note that the exam reason text can be mapped to our report templates as well, so that your reading doctors can avoid searching for the exam reason throughout the system.

          EMSOW would like to wish you and your families a happy and safe Labor Day. In observance of the federal holiday, our support and sales departments will be closed on Monday (September 7, 2020). However, all our systems will be up and operating as usual – and below are a couple of new things we have added this week.

          Many of our customers limit their use of EMSOW to the cloud PACS (which includes a zero-install DICOM viewer, as well as built-in dispatch and scheduling capabilities). We would like you to explore our state-of-the-art billing module that covers all the revenue cycle management tasks – from checking eligibility and claim generation to automated posting of ERAs and direct Part A billing.

            The painless way of sharing ePHI with your patients

            September 14, 2020

            Today, a growing number of patients wish to have access to their health information. There are several reasons for that. They may need to change a doctor, learn a second opinion or just want to get control of their health records and feel independent of their providers. Whatever the reason, the Right to be Informed and the Right to Information are provided by law and the norms of professional ethics. Therefore, medical businesses should give patients access to their info. However, there are some transferability and privacy issues.

            PHI

             

            So, what are the ways of sharing medical info with patients?

            Addressing a doctor or a facility directly is traditional, and, probably, the most troublesome way. Imagine that you need to get your records from a doctor you haven’t seen for months or even years. You’ll have to visit the facility and ask the front desk officer to retrieve your history. T...

                  In the latest version of EMSOW’s HL7 Requests module, the Created column has been renamed as Received. Note that this column now displays a timestamp of order receipt (instead of just a date). Now you will know exactly when your client sent you an order from their EMR via HL7.

                  Also, we have added the Date of service column that displays the date of service for processed requests.

However, in the rapidly developing imaging industry, our customers demand more features to optimize their processes, especially now, when their businesses are recovering from the COVID-19 crisis.

                            This week we have added some improvements to facilitate your communication with your referring doctors and facilities. This can be done either within our platform or through other healthcare software, because one of EMSOW’s key features is its interoperability with other systems through the HL7 protocol.

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 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, ...

                                    Finally, there’s good news! About 40% of our customers who were forced to put their business on hold due to the pandemic are back, and the others are on their way. Just during the past week, they uploaded to EMSOW 30% more studies compared to the week before. By the way, about a quarter of those were read by radiologists from the MDW marketplace, our trusted partners. Thank you for staying with us!

                                    We keep our fingers crossed for you, but that’s obviously not enough to overcome the crisis. We are working as hard as never before to ensure your success. If you would like to learn about our services, discounts, and anti-pandemic packages, please book a demo.

                                        June 12, 2020

                                        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.

                                        While we at EMSOW® are committed to providing you with all the services you need to optimize your imaging workflow, save your turnaround time and money on reads and PACS, we also understand the need for flexibility based on your individual circumstances. To make sure you can work with confidence, we’re offering flexible setup waivers to startups and small businesses.

                                        This week’s release is focused on Modality Worklist integration, study quality control, invoicing functionality and overall stability of the system to help your business optimize processes, which is essential during this pandemic.

                                          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.

                                          If you don’t feel like going through a techy long read, we welcome you to see our system in action and learn more about how you can save on reading and image storage expenses.

                                            HIPAA compliance

                                            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 ana...

                                              We have improved the facility invoicing functionality of EMSOW. Previous versions of the system would always sort invoices by service ID. Now you can sort them by patient name. To enable this option, follow the path: Setup > Billing > Referring > Referring facilities. Open a facility record and click on the Billing tab. In the Invoices section, select Patient name as the preferred sorting mode, and then click OK.

                                                  Dear imaging providers!

                                                  We are glad to present a new version of EMSOW with enhanced search functionality and interoperability.

                                                  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.

                                                  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.

The system will display the referring facility or account for which the invoice was created.

                                                      Does structured reporting limit doctors’ professional freedom?

                                                      April 28, 2020

                                                      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 to keep 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.

                                                      Structured reportting

                                                      Imagine a situation where a patient needs to change a physician (say, he or she has moved to another town). The new doctor needs to review the patient’s medical history and retrieve their previous reports that were created by the previous specialist. If they were entered as free text, the search becomes challenging. Moreover, the previous physician might have used non-standard termi...
