Florida's Midtown Outpatient Surgery Center Implements ASC Cloud EHR from Surgical Notes
Date:4/3/2017

DALLAS, April 3, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Surgical Notes, a nationwide provider of revenue cycle solutions and services, including, transcription, coding, revenue cycle management, document management, and electronic health record applications, for the ambulatory surgery center (ASC) and surgical hospital markets, announces the implementation of its ASC Cloud electronic health record (EHR) solution at Midtown Outpatient Surgery Center in Delray Beach, Fla.

Midtown is a multispecialty ASC providing services in orthopedic surgery, spine surgery, pain management, and other specialties. The ASC is licensed by the state of Florida, certified by Medicare, and accredited by The Joint Commission.

"Midtown prides itself on being a unique, highly specialized surgery center," said Chuck Meisel, Vice President of Sales for Surgical Notes. "When the facility approached us to learn more about ASC Cloud, Midtown was like the vast majority of surgery centers, documenting on paper and using different forms and chart packs for its specific specialties. The ASC's leaders stated a desire to be on the cutting edge with technology. More importantly, they wanted to improve their clinical documentation. ASC Cloud met both of these objectives."

Designed specifically for ASCs, ASC Cloud enables users to manage the complex requirements of clinical, quality, and financial reporting. With ASC Cloud, ASCs gain the ability to capture clinically rich data at the point of care using their familiar workflows and forms with sophisticated mobility tools that include the Apple iPad. Cost reductions, accuracy, and on-demand reporting ensure that ASCs using ASC Cloud maximize their profitability without sacrificing patient care and quality. All of these features are available to an ASC without having to change their practice management system.

ASC Cloud's streamlined implementation and training process make its adoption fast and easy, Meisel says. "To even get started on other EHR solutions requires extensive travel, onsite training, and significant IT support. With ASC Cloud, a surgery center only needs a few days of training and little IT support. ASC Cloud is scalable, so it doesn't require a significant investment from a software and hardware perspective. Since the experience of documenting in ASC Cloud on an iPad is not that different from documenting on paper, adoption of ASC Cloud is quick."

This sentiment is shared by Chris McMenemy, MS, CASC, President of Ortmann Healthcare Consulting Services, an ASC management and development company that provides consulting services to Midtown.

"ASC Cloud is similar to using a paper chart, which is what makes it so easy to implement," McMenemy says. "Instead of writing onto a piece of paper, we are clicking and writing on an iPad. It looks like a paper chart. It's even possible to orally dictate into the system to alleviate some typing. The final result is a chart that is easier to read, more accurate, faster to access, and more secure."

ASC Cloud has delivered organization-wide benefits, says Heather Overstreet, Midtown's Surgical Coordinator and Front Office Assistant. "It has been instrumental for our center. ASC Cloud has met our idea of mobility on a busy surgery day where we are no longer required to have one chart shared between multiple staff members. Staff can move easily from one area to another with no need to worry about the other resources. The system allows patient access for check-in with simple functionality and does not compromise the integrity of other patient records. Regardless of your daily patient flow, it is able to maintain flexibility in all aspects of speed, storage, and data processing."

Midtown has also benefited from ASC Cloud's "Co-pilot" technology, which provides tailored real-time alerts to ensure that critical documentation is not omitted. "Thanks to Co-pilot, Midtown has dramatically improved its documentation and eliminated manual chart auditing issues," Meisel says.

Overstreet says she finds tremendous value in the amount of time ASC Cloud saves on chart preparation. "There's no more handwriting in the forms or individually labeling 40-plus pages. The time savings is priceless."
