Ambulatory practices juggle many priorities, but everything is ultimately about providing high-quality care for patients. Every new tool, every new task must help meet that goal. Before adding a new data reporting solution, it’s important to know that it really works.

Data reporting – It’s more than utilization

We’ve extended our partnership with Meridian Medical Management to offer Allscripts TouchWorks® EHR clients a robust option for reporting through PrecisionBI. TouchWorks EHR Reporting is a powerful solution that has a proven track record helping physician practices achieve strong clinical and financial results.

Organizations can use it to create sophisticated ad-hoc reports with simple point-and-click tools without impacting the EHR. Physicians choose how to summarize and display their individual data, per provider preference, including list reports as well as chart and graph views. This transparency with clinical data – along with the financial overviews afforded via the dashboard – helps clinicians understand patient populations and provide quality care.

Easy-to-use reports provide clinical intelligence, improve quality reporting

Here is an example of how TouchWorks EHR clients have used clinical intelligence from this solution to improve quality. EVMS Medical Group (Norfolk, Virginia, U.S.A.)is a not-for-profit physician group supporting Eastern Virginia Medical School (EVMS), with more than 150 physicians in 30 locations.

“We needed a tool that was easy to use without having to engage IT department resources,” Nursing Clinical Quality Coordinator Allison G. Gray, RN, said.

EVMS Medical Group used pre-built searches, worksheets, analyses and reports, and were able to develop essential tools such as disease registries and other key monitoring solutions. The team developed tools to help departments succeed with quality improvement initiatives.

Thanks to EVMS Medical Group for sharing its success with this solution. To learn more, contact us at TouchWorks@Allscripts.com.
