Preserves existing IT Investments
In today’s health care environment, facilities need to make the best use of every asset. The ED Charging Application is built with an open API for the seamless exchange of information with existing clinical systems. Our Outpatient Charge Capture applications have successfully been integrated with some of the most respected software in the health care industry. Your organization can continue to use existing software and still receive the value of the Optum LYNX charging algorithms.
Flexible and scalable deployment
The ED Charging Application is constructed with a scalable application architecture that accommodates a single hospital to a large integrated delivery network (IDN). Our flexible deployment requires minimal support from existing IT resources.
- Web-based deployment—Clinicians access the ED Charging Application directly with a wide selection of supported browsers
- Integrated deployment—Clinicians interact with existing outpatient systems and receive the benefits of Optum LYNX charging algorithms with our open API
The ED Charging Application’s algorithms are developed and managed by an experienced team of coding and compliance experts. In the event of a payer audit, Optum will provide auditors with information explaining how the ED Charging Application works and adheres to charging regulations and guidelines.
While many vendors offer an analytic reporting package with their solutions, we distinguish ourselves from the competition by providing performance monitoring reports before and after the sale. Prior to a sale, we can provide an outpatient charging assessment to evaluate the impact our Outpatient Charge Capture applications will have on your charging. After purchasing the ED Charging Application, clients receive quarterly analytic reports providing insight on charging patterns and other key operational metrics.
