California Pacific Medical Center Implements Chart Links Software

April 9, 2008 · Posted in Documentation, Workflow · Comment 

To gain greater efficiency and increased regulatory compliance, outpatient rehabilitation facilities across four campuses of California Pacific Medical Center, a Sutter Health Affiliate in San Francisco, have implemented Chart Links electronic documentation software.

“Our partnership with Chart Links helps fulfill the vision of allowing clinicians in our physical, occupational, hand and speech therapy programs to document electronically,” says Tami Chin, Director of Rehabilitation at California Pacific.  “The software streamlines operations and electronically prompts our therapists — during patient documentation — to ensure greater compliance with Medicare CCI edits, modifiers and time tracking.  These elements are essential to running an efficient and profitable department.”

Chart Links Rehabilitation Software automates the therapist’s documentation of daily progress notes including evaluations, plans of care, flow sheets, patient education, and charge capture.  By automating this and other aspects of the patient management process, rehabilitation facilities realize greater efficiencies in the areas of turnaround time, physician approvals and therapist productivity.  The software also helps to reduce overdue documentation and ensure greater compliance with regulatory requirements.

“Large multi-campus institutions like California Pacific cannot afford to remain paper-based,” says Ron Miller, M.D., Chart Links President and Chief Medical Officer.  “Computerized scheduling, documentation, compliance and workflow management enable strong management teams — like the one at California Pacific — to improve operational and financial inefficiencies.  In addition, our solution is driven by major accreditation and rehabilitation professional standards to help ensure regulatory compliance.”
