Through higher reimbursement, lower operating cost and the ability to control operations more effectively, the Optimus EMR® long term care software will make any facility more profitable.
REDUCE FACILITY COSTS!
The Optimus EMR® long term care software eliminates duplication of activities, promotes workflow redesign, and guarantees automation and completion of many previously manual processes.
REDUCE FACILITY RISKS!
The Optimus EMR system gives administrative staff the ability to be proactive instead of reactive in care and management. Clinical records are accurate and available for audit at any time. All documentation is date and time stamped with a personal electronic signature attached to all charting.
Increase reimbursement with the use of our automated MDS module with built-in intelligence and audits
Unique to the Optimus EMR® software, the system completes on demand multiple MDSs through a set of sophisticated algorithms and calculations. Users then have multiple RUG Rates from which to choose in order to capture the best ARD. In fact, Optimus EMR® has tools that allow your reimbursement staff to view a RUG Rate for every day, for every Medicare PPS and Medicaid Case Mix Resident! It’s virtually impossible to ignore important changes (increases) in reimbursement for which you are entitled, based on the care being provided. Our customers realize a minimum reimbursement increase of 20% in Medicare and Medicaid where applicable with the use of the Optimus EMR® system.
Chain Organizations can finally standardize all clinical documentation across all disciplines and for all facilities
Through the use of standardized workflows, pre-formatted assessments and progress notes, all care-givers can be trained to document the same way in all facilities! This creates best practices and makes corporate QA and auditing more effective and faster at the same time!
Obtain better quality information through Point-of-Care data collection and other logically entered clinical information that is then used for MDS content and support for reimbursement
With POC data collection the clinical managers and administrative staff have a consistent stream of real time data to enhance patient care and to better control clinical operations. Caregivers are given real-time alerts, messages, and clinical decision support tools specific to each resident.
Reduce billing and ADT paperwork with our bi-directional integration with several Financial/Billing system
The Optimus EMR® system communicates information automatically with several financial/billing applications so that both systems are up to date and in synch at all times. This reduces time spent on manual entry and problems from inconsistent information.
Eliminate incomplete data and manual data gathering with the CNA charting module
The Optimus EMR® long term care software allows managers to monitor staff performance either through standard tracking reports or through customizable electronic reports that combine data from all sources of collected data within the system with just a few clicks instead of hours of going through charts.
Increase quality of patient care with our point-of-care charting systems and customizable alerts
The caregivers can complete charting with simple clicks on check boxes that represent specific data instead of hand writing, which allows for more time with residents. Use of Optimus EMR® structured notes and clinical pathways promote good quality records and avoidance of errors and omissions in clinical activities. Customizable real time alerts notify the administrative staff of potential issues so possible problems can be averted and also enhance resident care.
Experience success with our implementation partnership that guarantees success and the ROI
Optimus EMR® offers an intensive, four-phase, implementation process during which our industry experts analyze and redesign the facility’s work flow to help the facility gain maximum operational efficiency through the system. After the staff is using the basic system functions, we provide an Optimus EMR® expert to analyze results and then educate your team on other system functions during the monthly telephone conferences.
Manage facility operations and performance from your desktop with real time and customizable alerts for staff activity and potential problem areas
The Optimus EMR® eCC, or Electronic Control Center, is comprised of several user interfaces or "information panels" that provide real time information, alerts, and analytic reports (graphs and charts) regarding all important information needed to efficiently manage staff and the facility. This allows administrative staff to see any potential problems and address them within seconds.
Secure web-based delivery with 100% built-in uptime protection
With use of Optimus EMR® Evergreen Appliance, your EMR system will never stop performing due to internet outage. The device allows staff to collect data and provide patient care even when the internet is down for an extended period. This is not possible with any other ASP or SaaS system that does not have such a failsafe device and data synchronization function.
Remote access for Physicians, Facility Staff, and Pharmacists
Optimus EMR® is a web-based system. Facility Physicians, Staff, and Pharmacists can access the individual patient eCharts, create orders, review orders, and have real-time clinical information from remote locations!. Facility staff are able to access the Optimus System from home or corporate locations!
The eMAR eliminates medication errors and saves staff time
The easy to use and robust medication administration module only allows the proper medications to be administered and mandates required medication work flow and documentation. This greatly improves medication accuracy and simultaneously speeds the medication pass times. Our customers report much greater accuracy and significant time savings with the Optimus eMAR system.
Always prepared for regulatory compliance and survey readiness with automated, real-time 802 and 672 reports
These reports are ready in minutes instead of hours with up to date information.
Increase staff accountability with alerts and management reports
With the use of the Optimus staff ID badges and electronic signatures, administrative staff can monitor all staff data entries and activities for performance and possible errors and/or omissions.
Increase staff satisfaction with easy-to-use electronic charting and customizable reminders
The Optimus EMR® charting system is very intuitive and makes daily charting much easier. The system guides the caregiver through the process of proper clinical documentation and frees time for direct patient care. Supplying well designed and efficient tools creates staff satisfaction and reduced staff turnover.
Avoid medication errors and enhance pharmacy communication with the CPOE and pharmacy interface module
The HL7 bi-directional interface with the pharmacy decreases the time spent on the phone or faxing information to the pharmacy and eliminates a primary cause of many communication errors.
Lab interface allows for immediate availability of lab results in patient eChart for review by MD and care planning
Lab results are communicated by the lab right back into the residents electronic chart thus allowing for faster reactions to those results by the reviewing physician.
Ready access to real-time information for communication with physicians and family members
Have real time resident information available in seconds to discuss with doctors or family members.
Streamline caregivers' workflow and accuracy of clinical data with single screen access to each resident's full clinical record
With use of the Optimus EMR® eChart (or electronic chart) you can see a complete resident record on one screen. Easy navigation allows you to drill down as needed to obtain a full audit trail from this one screen.
Eliminate monthly change-over process with our CPOE and eMAR/eTAR module
The monthly review and approval of all orders by MD's may be performed electronically in full compliance with electronic signature requirements. Since the orders and eMAR –eTAR are always up to date and available real time, there is no monthly audit and change over process. This saves 80-100 hours of nursing time per 120 bed facility, per month!
Enhance Relations with hospitals and admitting physicians
The Optimus EMR® provides current and complete transfer information in its transfer document for discharges to the hospital. This function greatly enhances the ability for the hospital to quickly analyze the situation and react. By having a robust EMR and its advantages for patient care allows the facility to proactively market these strengths to discharge planners and admitting physicians.
