Dr. Robert Mayle wanted to improve upon his existing surgical care coordination workflow at his clinic. His team relied on physical paperwork, faxes and emails to fill out and send surgical booking sheets to his surgery locations. He understood the drawback to relying on this older technology was the potential to overlook, misplace or even lose paperwork containing critical information for the patient’s surgery. In turn, this could cause delays inhibiting his quality of care for the patient and even add a cost to rectify the situation. This didn’t sync with CPOSM’s mission to provide a superior level of healthcare in a compassionate, efficient and cost-effective manner.
Dr. Mayle overhauled the manual process of copying information from the EMR to the surgical booking sheet by replacing it with a digital solution. Via the DocSpera integration to his EMR, he was able to pre-populate his booking sheets with all the patient information already in the system. The digital booking sheet would then be signed with a couple clicks of his mouse and automatically sent to the surgical location. The transfer was automatic and completely digital using DocSpera’s HIPAA-compliant platform.
When all was said and done, Dr. Mayle had reduced the time it took to complete the surgical booking sheet, eliminated the need to fax or email anything and maintained the privacy of his patient’s PHI. His entire care team now had access to the same information at the same time.
