Improved HL7 functionality for imaging providers!

EMSOW feature release

What makes EMSOW special? The answer is – integration! The platform can work seamlessly with any EMR/EHR system that supports the HL7 protocol. You can receive requests for appointments via ORM messages, billing requests via DFT, and send lab/radiology results via ORU automatically – no matter which EMR your client uses.

This time, we have updated our HL7 Requests module. If you are our customer, see the description below. If you are new and want to learn how to keep all your client connections under one umbrella through HL7, book a call with us.

[#22081] Improved default settings in the HL7 requests module

In previous versions, the system displayed all the HL7 requests upon opening the HL7 Requests module. This took time and occasionally caused slowdowns. We have changed this default setting.  Now, upon clicking on the HL7 Requests button, EMSOW displays the information for the current date only.
TIP: To search HL7 requests by any parameter and in one click, use search filters in the Options panel.

[#22210] Process multiple messages at once in HL7 Requests

EMSOW runs a series of tests when it receives an HL7 message, e.g., it checks if the referring facility from the message matches your database records. In case of any inconsistency, the message remains in the Pending or Failure status. To make it easier for you to handle such issues, we added support for processing multiple messages at once. Now, if you found an issue and corrected it, you can select more than one message and click Process (Auto) to quickly turn the received messages into EMSOW service records.

    EMSOW introduces a smartphone-friendly version for mobile imaging providers!

    Mobile Diagnostic

    We are excited to announce the smartphone-friendly version of EMSOW. From now on, you can manage your mobile diagnostic business right from your smartphone or tablet. Like the desktop version of the system, the new user interface works in a web browser and requires no installation.

    It is a small and simple yet powerful communication hub that helps you:

    • dispatch technologists
    • send push notifications and text notes to your personnel
    • enter study information within seconds
    • prioritize exams as Routine, STAT, and ASAP
    • track exam status
    • easily search for previous patients and studies

    Built-in ICD & CPT code databases and patient lookup save plenty of time and effort. Start entering a keyword, and the system will display the list of available procedures, diagnoses, or patients.

    The smartphone-friendly version is a new addition to EMSOW’s family that includes the full-size desktop system with cloud image storage, DICOM processing, and billing tools.

    Together they offer a powerful toolkit that streamlines your mobile diagnostic experience, speeds up reading and revenue collection, and connects you with as many technologists, clients, physicians, and EMR systems as you need. If you are a mobile diagnostic imaging provider, you’ve got to try EMSOW!

    To learn more about the smartphone-friendly version of EMSOW, contact us at connect@emsow.com.

      INDUSTRY NEWS

      TechCrunch: “Every day, millions of new medical images containing the personal health information of patients are spilling out onto the internet.” About half of these images belong to patients from the USA. It seems like cyber-security risks are becoming more acute. One of the ways to minimize them is to use a secure cloud platform for image transfer.

      In response to these challenges, our developers are constantly working on enhancing EMSOW’s security. However, this week we have focused on improving our billing and posting systems.

      [#19412] Do not create patient statements for claims forwarded to a secondary payer

      We have updated our payment posting feature to prevent errors and improve your billing accuracy. From now on, the system will not create a patient statement when you are posting a payment from an ERA that indicates that the original claim was forwarded to a secondary insurance carrier. If the secondary insurance is not entered into the service record, an error message will be displayed, asking the user to add the secondary insurance to the service.

       

      [#19372] Updates in the Clearing module

      To further improve your billing accuracy, we have also updated the Clearing module. Now, before you mark a file as taken by ticking the flag icon in the Taken column, you will see a confirmation window. To mark the file as taken, click Yes. Besides, we have added the Date taken column so that you could easily track the date and time of when the files were taken.

      [#19482] Improved claims search

      Now you can gain better control over your revenue streams. Previously, the Unsent claims filter disregarded the claims that users marked as submitted manually, so the filter would display those claims as if they were unsent. We have fixed this issue. Also, we have added a new filter, Unsent claims (via clearing house), which allows you to search specifically for claims that are supposed to be sent electronically.

      [#19490] Billing status icons in the Processing module

      You asked us to visualize the billing status of exams in the Processing module, and we did it. We have added visual icons to the billing status line. Now, along with the textual description, you will see status icons: ‎✅ for paid exams, ⌛ for pending payments, and ✍️ for written-off amounts. This update will help your staff see the billing status of the exams at a glance!
