Maximize Patient Care and Practice Performance

Oncology patients have unique care needs that include:

  • Long-term, scheduled treatments
  • Regular monitoring with lab work to track health status
  • The possibility for the occurrence of side effects that can be medically managed
  • Multiple, concurrent health concerns
  • Challenging lifelong care issues

This scenario sets up the possibility of over-prescribing or under-prescribing medications or labs. Not only would this indicate that national care standards are not being met, but these could also be missed opportunities for generating practice revenue or avoiding expense.

EMOL Health provides physician practices the vital, real-time clinical information they need to make the best patient care decisions at the correct time.

And with its ease of use and good value, EMOL Health lets physician practices maximize patient care and practice performance at the same time.

Testimonials

Praise for EMOL Health

"I wanted to let you know that the Zometa tool helped us to identify patients who had diagnoses of 'bone mets' but were not receiving monthly Zometa. After confirming the diagnosis with the attending physician, not only were we able to treat the patient appropriately, but we also met our quarterly quota, which allowed us to obtain our 3 percent rebate. This equates to an approximate rebate of $6,568.96 for the quarter. This tool was effective in assuring that patients are getting proper care, but also assuring that [our practice] was able to meet its quota."
— Donna Lamb, RN, OCN, Nursing Services Manager

Dictation Mining

Parsing and Full Text Searching of Physician Dictation

Despite the addition of EMR, physicians continue to rely on the speed and ease of oral dictation to update patient charts, a habit reinforced by payers who require dictated notes for reimbursement. Because of this, key elements of the patient record may be contained only in physician dictations.

Data aggregation that relies solely on EMR can miss important facts, such as metastases, cancer stage, patient ethnicity and race, or specific type of cancer.

EMOL Health solutions include powerful software capabilities to find and mine information from oral dictation, giving our aggregated data more detail and accuracy.

We use two techniques to uncover patient information in physician dictations:

Full-Text Searching

After indexing all the words in a patient dictation, our software searches for significant matches using an algorithm to increase the accuracy of a match. For example, we know that physicians generally mention a patient’s race in the first sentence of dictation. Any subsequent uses of words that may seem to be a description of race are less likely to be a description of race, reducing the accuracy of that match.

Data Parsing

Our system also creates value through data parsing – the ability to dig though data to find important patient information that is more significant to researchers than to payers, such as co-morbidities, cancer stage, or histology code. EMOL Health can parse medications and diagnoses out of dictations with more than 90 percent accuracy.
