T-System Releases 2009 Update for the T System(R) Primary Care Charting System
Date:6/16/2009

All Templates in Leading Primary Care Product Line Now Support Level 5 Coding Plus More Consistent Data Location and Terminology

DALLAS, June 16 /PRNewswire/ -- T-System, Inc., the leading provider of clinical documentation and information solutions in emergency departments and urgent care centers, announced today the release of its 2009 update for The T System(R) for Primary Care, the nation's leading paper charting system for primary care clinics and physicians. While updates to the templates are made regularly through ongoing development, the 2009 primary care charting system update represents some substantial revisions. Changes include updated clinical content and reimbursement guidelines as well as updated PQRI (Physician Quality Reporting Initiative) criteria, which together help the clinician maximize efficiency and overall quality in patient assessment, treatment and billing.

Among the valuable enhancements in The T System(R) for Primary Care's 53 core and 40 supplementary templates are:

  • Level 5 coding throughout, for easier reporting, transcription and billing.
  • Consistent data locations and terminology that support more intuitive use by clinicians.
  • Updated and improved content that includes revisions to the HPI, physical exam and wound repair sections. Lab and X-ray sections, as well as health education and counseling areas, have also been revised.
  • Shading removed for improved reproduction and scanning.

"Clinicians will find the 2009 Primary Care Update to be another step forward in quality of care and operational efficiency," said Suzy Wier Thorby, RN, senior vice president and chief nursing officer for T-System, Inc. "This update reflects input from many individuals on both the clinical and administrative sides. Non-essential information has been removed and greater consistency has been established from one template to the next. The end result is faster movement through each template, with fewer distractions."

The T System for Primary Care has become a daily part of operations at hundreds of practices nationwide due to its proven design that reduces errors and speeds information transfer. Users can often achieve up to two hours of increased patient care time per shift, while lowering transcription costs and reducing or eliminating handwritten notes. Furthermore, a study conducted at UT Southwestern Medical Center (S. Mulvehill, MD Investigator) found that The T System for Primary Care also increased reimbursement by an average of $13 per patient encounter through enhanced data capture.

Current users of The T System for Primary Care will receive the 2009 Primary Care Update automatically. To learn more about the T System for Primary Care, visit www.tsystem.com/primarycare or call 1-866-222-5577.
