What is Pulmonology Software?
At a basic level, pulmonology software electronically stores patient medical information. Ideally, the software not only takes into account the unique needs of pulmonologists, it also helps them spend more time with patients. But no matter how modern or feature-filled an electronic medical record (EMR) is, unless it easily integrates with all other software used in the pulmonology practice—everything from testing devices to billing software—it’s not a good choice.
Tomorrow’s Software Today
Today’s patients expect simple, fast, multi-channel communication with all their providers, along with virtual visits when appropriate. To keep up, pulmonology 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.
4 Ways Modern EMRs Benefit Pulmonologists
- Simplify coding. EMRs that are difficult to learn, counterintuitive to use, and require multiple steps for simple tasks can lead to physician burnout. Just under 30% of pulmonologists in a recent survey said they’re experiencing burnout, with 56% saying they do six more more hours of weekly after-hours charting and a whopping 39% expressing dissatisfaction with their organization’s EHR. Because of coding complexity and patient volume, pulmonologists need software that improves efficiency by quickly leading them through the process to enter, for example, a type of valve replacement or artery-malformation category.
- Easily integrate imaging data. CT scans, X-rays, PET scans, spirometers, and bronchoscopes combine with lab tests to detect and/or monitor pulmonology issues, so look for an EMR that can integrate with these devices. Ideally, the EMR should be able to not only receive, but also analyze the large amounts of data generated by these types of imagers.
- Aid patient monitoring. Chronic lung-disease patients must be carefully monitored over time to identify condition trends. Look for an EMR with an easy-to-use patient dashboard built in. This allows providers to more easily track the health status, upcoming appointments, and recent lab tests for multiple patients.
- 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 revenue 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 Pulmonologists 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 pulmonology clinic, it will not be able to give you the granular data you need for RCM. Put simply, the pulmonology 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 CT scanners and spirometers
Lastly, the pulmonology office system should be able to quickly integrate with patient-facing systems such as patient portals and personal electronic medical records.
