Optum Physician EMR
Optum Physician EMR is a web-based application fully integrated with all the operational functions of the practice. Pulling charts, approving refill requests, and signing lab results are just a click away. This simplicity strengthens the patient physician experience, improves quality, and reduces costs.
Manage workflow with ease and accountability
With Optum Physician EMR, your providers can introduce a new method of managing tasks that streamlines the work and provides them with comfort that there is accountability to address patient issues promptly. For example, Optum Physician EMR receives faxed lab results so they cannot get lost, and prescription refill requests can be processed day or night. In addition, all clinical messages, from paper mail to dictated notes, are monitored, measured, and escalated if they need attention. Clinical managers will
appreciate such easy controls, and caregivers will be receptive to the positive change in workflow.
Manage by exception
Most providers welcome clinical input but do not need “in your face” reminders. Optum Physician EMR uses decision support to add value and improve the experience. Out-of-norm lab results are highlighted in red. Drug interaction and guidelines of care make critical information available to see or enter without adding documentation time. Optum Physician EMR’s decision support goes beyond the experience with a specific patient. Practice-wide protocols monitor patient populations within a practice. Automated lists are generated to remind patients and providers where follow-up care may be appropriate. By working this process on an exception basis, Optum Physician EMR can help achieve lower costs, greater revenue, and measurable quality.
No hidden costs
Application access is paid for via a predictable monthly subscription, which means you don’t have to invest resources in IT, hardware, or maintenance costs common to client-server setups. In addition, Optum Physician is maintained and co-located at redundant HIPAA-compliant data center.
”Optum Physician EMR is helping us increase reimbursements in a pay-for-performance program by capturing and reporting on quality measures across our five clinics.”
— Dr. Pablo Rodriguez, president and CEO of Women’s Care
