Case Study: Summit Pacific Increases Reimbursement, Clinic Volumes with MEDITECH Analytics
MEDITECH’s Business and Clinical Analytics (BCA) solution has helped Summit Pacific Medical Center realize quantifiable improvements
MEDITECH’s Business and Clinical Analytics (BCA) solution has helped Summit Pacific Medical Center realize quantifiable improvements in reimbursement and clinic volumes, a new case study shows.
The Critical Access Hospital located in Elma, WA was struggling to reconcile high patient demand for provider appointments, with metrics showing that physicians were falling below their target patient volumes by almost 25 percent. Using MEDITECH’s BCA Solution, Summit Pacific was able to analyze data in real-time, rather than wait on quarterly reports, to help identify and refine performance improvements. The result was an 8% increase in daily clinic volumes and a 13-day reduction in A/R days, among other measured improvements.
With newly enhanced transparency, Summit Pacific is able to respond more quickly with process adjustments and corrections. Since adopting BCA, the organization has fewer no-shows and more patients seen in a day per provider. They’ve also experienced a 70 percent decrease in the amount of time between chart closures.
