Chart Links Interface to FOTO for Outcomes

February 2, 2011 · Posted in Outcomes · Comment 

Chart Links, a leading provider of workflow management software for medical rehabilitation, has developed a  data exchange with FOTO’s Patient Inquiry® (PI®) software.  This Health Level 7 (HL7) interface virtually eliminates redundant data entry by automatically populating information entered into Chart Links directly into FOTO’s Patient Inquiry software.

FOTO, or Focus On Therapeutic Outcomes, Inc., is the nation’s largest independent outpatient database and reporting service for physical rehabilitation providers.  FOTO provides an external, standardized, comparative database management and reporting service.

Chart Links’ interface to FOTO offers therapists a convenient way to get at functional and demographic data that will support decisions to maximize clinical efficiency.  By measuring performance against therapists all over the country, outpatient rehabilitation facilities can identify strengths and weaknesses to target areas for the improvement of clinical practice and continuing education of staff. They can also gain access to information that will allow their facility to

  • better market its services
  • track outcomes of referral sources
  • negotiate contracts with payers
  • better understand its patients
