complete op notes, shortening revenue cycle
Surgical Notes, a nationwide provider of revenue cycle solutions, including, transcription,
coding, revenue cycle management, and document management for the ambulatory
surgery center (ASC) and surgical hospital markets, announces the launch
of a newly updated mobile transcription application. The app provides
many enhancements to clients contracting with Surgical Notes for
SNChart, Surgical Notes’ proprietary technology, is a user-friendly,
web-based transcription management tool that automates much of a surgery
center’s manual, day-to-day transcription operations. Users can
receive, review, edit, sign, and archive operative reports in one platform
that provides complete data integrity from start to finish by offering
full integration with practice management systems.
The new SNChart mobile transcription app, designed for physicians and customer
beta tested, is now available for download in the App Store (iOS) and
Play Store (Android). It minimizes administrative tasks associated with
documentation, speeds up the review, edit, and authentication process,
and allows providers to dictate anytime, anywhere using their Android
or Apple mobile devices.
The SNChart mobile transcription app is already in use by physicians in
surgery centers and offices nationwide. There is no additional cost to
Surgical Notes clients for the app.
New features of the mobile transcription app include:
Biometric Login offering enhanced security and access.
Expanded Device Support to include Android and iOS platforms.
Modern Design that is user friendly and simplifies navigation.
Color-Coded Status Indicators to highlight important action items.
eSignature Support to speed the transcription process in a compliant manner.
Multi-Tasking Support to allow use of multiple apps and receive incoming calls simultaneously.
Advanced Search to assist with locating critical information quickly.
The SNChart mobile transcription app is fully HIPAA compliant, and its
development team followed widely accepted industry best practices to include
many security controls. Surgical Notes has tested the app extensively
with the industry-leading application security testing platform Veracode.
All electronic protected health information is encrypted, and many other
security controls are built into the app, such as inactivity timeouts,
unique logins, and logging.
“Surgical Notes was one of the first companies to launch a mobile
transcription app and has once again brought further innovation to the
medical transcription industry with a completely re-tooled application,”
said Randy Bishop, Chief Operating Officer for Surgical Notes. "Our
mobile transcription app includes the most innovative, user-friendly features
available in the marketplace. We designed the new app following the latest
security protocols so our clients can be assured that their information
is completely secure."
"This app was developed with a group of physicians. They helped us
enhance the user experience and make dictation and completion of operative
reports even more convenient, quick, and easy, which reduces the time
for claims submission," said Mr. Bishop. "The app ultimately
shortens a facility's revenue cycle and decreases days in accounts
receivable. At Surgical Notes, we strive to deliver the best transcription
service in the industry. Developing new resources such as the enhanced
mobile transcription app is part of ongoing efforts to improve our operations
and bring greater cost savings and efficiency to our clients."
