Microwize demystifies patient engagement
A patient’s greater engagement in healthcare contributes to improved health outcomes, and information technologies can support engagement. Patients want to be engaged in their healthcare decision-making process, and those who are engaged as decision-makers in their care tend to be healthier and have better outcomes.
Population Health Management provides comprehensive, authoritative strategies for improving the systems and policies that affect health care quality, access, and outcomes, ultimately improving the health of an entire population.
Revenue cycle management (RCM) is the process of managing claims, payment and revenue generation. RCM encompasses everything from determining patient insurance eligibility and collecting co-pays to properly coding claims.
A well-designed RCM system is able to communicate with the EHR and accounting systems to streamline the billing and collection cycles.
Preparing practices, clinics and hospitals for the future of value-based care
As healthcare shifts from fee-for-service to pay-for-performance models, practices that adapt with the change will be well positioned to continue caring for patients and improving their bottom line by taking advantage of value-based payment programs.
With so many different healthcare venues, a typical practice has to exchange data in many different ways.
Microwize understands this challenge and is able to provide solutions for interoperability between disparate systems.
