ABC Works With Epic Anesthesia to Establish Automated Electronic Transfer of Anesthesia Records
Anesthesia Business Consultants (ABC) keeps a keen eye on the continued proliferation of electronic medical record (EMR) technology. It is not enough to adopt the latest technology, ABC investigates the latest technological advancements in EMR, carefully testing new systems to ensure their compatibility with our renowned OneSourceAnesthesia platform, and working with leading-edge software providers. Our goal: to facilitate a smooth transition from paper to electronic billing of anesthesia services. ABC strategically considers each upgrade from both a technological and functional update—in an effort to provide clients an unparalleled level of service.
OneSourceAnesthesia Successfully Integrates EMR with Epic Anesthesia
ABC is pleased to announce that we have successfully interfaced with Epic Anesthesia. ABC worked with Orange Regional Medical Center and its Epic project team on a repeatable approach for electronic professional billing at Orange Regional Medical Center, located in Orange, New York. The records and billing information, when combined with the automated electronic demographic interfaces and surgery schedules, benefit ABC clients by providing a HIPAA-compliant and secure transfer of case data for electronic anesthesia billing.
Using best practices from the experience with Epic Anesthesia at the Orange Regional Medical Center shapes ABC’s approach to upcoming projects. The added value to clients is a smooth transition to electronic medical billing, with the myriad of implementation questions already answered and the process optimized. Although each implementation is unique, ABC tailors the approach to each process, resulting in the best possible outcome. As well, our OneSourceAnesthesia system interface and process provide the best solution to guarantee 100% accurate file transfer for anesthesia.
The lessons learned from this successful project demonstrate ABC's continual commitment to improving the EMR billing implementation process. It is a reinforcement of our pledge to meet our client’s needs in anesthesia billing, reporting, data analysis and as a business partner.
