Ingenious Med's IM Quality Measures(TM) Delivers Insight About Hospitalist Performance
Date:6/10/2008

rtant to that agenda. It's also important that hospitalists have the opportunity to get the same 1.5% PQRI reporting bonus as other specialties. It was nice to be able to call on Ingenious Med and get the data to make our case."

But the value of IM Quality Measures(TM) extends beyond the PQRI. For example, Scottsdale Inpatient Specialists in Scottsdale, Arizona, a rapidly expanding practice, anticipates that documenting outstanding quality measures will lead to enhanced reimbursement by non-government payors.

"We started using IM Quality Measures(TM) because it is the right thing to do from a quality standpoint," explained Scottsdale Inpatient Specialists Medical Director Bruce Waldon, MD, FACP. "A reminder on IM Practice Manager(TM) is a safety net and helps us make sure we do not miss something. Our goal has been to have 100% compliance with the medical core measures and we've hit 100% on all of them since November of 2007."

Waldon thinks the focus on quality will result in enhanced reimbursement from private payors.

"It should help us in the long run," he said. "If we can demonstrate that our outcomes are better and that we reduced re-admissions, we can negotiate better terms with payors. It allows us to say, 'we're saving you money by doing things right and we should get paid for doing the right things.'"

About Ingenious Med: Ingenious Med was founded in 1999 by a group of practicing hospitalist leaders and has a customer base comprising thousands of users in over 500 facilities across the United States. Ingenious Med's flagship product, IM Practice Manager(TM) is an Internet-based application that enables inpatient physicians to capture charges, improve their quality of care, and communicate digitally with their peers and administrators. In addition, the program aggregates management data separately from the hospital information system, so individual physician and total department performance can be accurately evaluated. Natio
