Tomorrow’s Nephrology Practice Software TODAY

What is Nephrology Software?

Nephrology software is designed to electronically store nephrology-patient medical information. Ideally, the software not only takes into account the unique needs of nephrologists, it helps them spend more time with patients by reducing time spent on scheduling and documentation. But no matter how modern or feature-filled an electronic medical record (EMR) is, unless it easily integrates with all other software used in your nephrology practice—everything from imaging devices to billing software—it’s not a good choice.

Tomorrow’s Software Today

Today’s patients expect simple, fast, multi-channel communication with their providers, along with virtual visits if appropriate. To keep up, nephrology practices must provide secure text and chat for appointment making, automated appointment reminders, electronic registration, mobile check-in, telehealth connected to EHR, and automated e-billing and statements.

6 Ways a Modern EMR Benefits Nephrologists

  1. Simplify coding. EMRs that are difficult to learn, counterintuitive to use, and require multiple steps for simple tasks lead to physician burnout. Nephrologists are especially vulnerable to this phenomenon because of coding complexity: they need software that improves efficiency by quickly leading them through the process to enter, for example, an infection type or renal failure category.
  2. Facilitate test and treatment data. Ultrasound, CT scans, MRIs, and scinigraphy images are all used frequently for kidney abnormality detection, often involving large amounts of data. Look for an EMR that can both manage image inflow and interface with dialysis machines for treatment data.
  3. Reduce documentation. All physicians struggle to balance documentation with face-to-face patient interaction, but the battle is acute for nephrologists—many have to use EMRs at multiple sites in the same day. Researchers looking at the current state of nephrology note that “Many nephrologists spend hours traveling between multiple dialysis units, seeing patients in facilities owned by large for-profit dialysis companies where our contributions to patient care may not be highly valued. Compounding this are reforms on payment models that emphasize data reporting and increase the burden of documentation rather than encouraging patient-centered care…A focus must be on decreasing the demands of documentation.”
  4. Support scheduling and e-prescribing. EMRs that let nephrologists access and create appointments based on their own calendar as well as dialysis-center calendars is an enormous boon. Similarly, robust e-prescribing lets physicians generate and send prescriptions such as dialysis medication directly to the patient’s pharmacy, eliminating the need for emails or faxes.
  5. Improve practice management. Features like mobile access, dialysis rounding and reporting, note-taking templates, PQRI reporting functions, clinical decision support, and customizable patient-progress dashboards all help nephrologists create workflows that help them spend more time with patients and less on administrative tasks.
  6. Improve revenue cycle management (RCM). You may think you need more staff or expertise to solve your A/R issues—the truth is today’s technology can identify and fix lost revene from patient balances and unpaid claims; benchmark your reimbursement rates; and help you understand how to increase patient satisfaction, increase revenue on routine appointments, and reduce no-shows.

What’s the Biggest Mistake Nephrologists Make When Choosing an Office Solution?

No matter how modern or feature-filled a system is, unless it is integrated with all other office software used in the nephrology practice, it will not be able to give you the granular data you need for RCM. Put simply, the cardiac office software you select should help providers:

  • Provide in-office and remote patient care
  • Quickly create superbills
  • Easily track revenue to avoid leaks
  • Create customized notetaking templates
  • Create dashboards to track patient progress
  • Easily gather data from devices such as ultrasounds, MRIs, and CT scanners

Lastly, the nephrology office system should be able to quickly integrate with patient-facing systems such as patient portals and personal electronic medical records.
