Marketplace Benefits for Surgicenters and their Ambulatory Physicians
The Surgicenter sets up a patient record for every pending surgery. They must make sure the patient is prepped and understands the pre-surgery procedures and instructions. This requires that they receive data from the ambulatory surgeon and/or anesthesiologist and then they must enter it into the Surgicenter EMR/EHR system. There is generally no secure messaging system in place with their ambulatory physicians. The doctors will all use different EMR systems, mostly incompatible, and the only real connection between all software systems is fax transmission.
Most surgery is accompanied by tests to include pathology results, blood work and more. These tests are returned to the Surgicenter and then must be faxed to the surgeons at their practice.
All of these problems are reduced or resolved using the marketplace. Everything is online and available to all parties in the ecosystem in a secure environment. Information flows are improved, administrative time is substantially reduced and doctors have more immediate access to test results real-time, at the same time the result (typically pathology) is returned to the Surgicenter by their pathology lab vendor.
