Cleveland Clinic Florida
The following document, created by Cleveland Clinic Florida, shows how much time, per script, they were able to save with EMUE over OLIE. It is broken down into both management time and script creation & debugging time, and can be used as a basis for your own calculations.
What's the bottom line?
"The implementation of EMUE allowed us to reduce our FTE resources allocated to managing scripts from 2.5 to 1, and the number of PCs used from 4 to 1.
The users felt the front-end was easier to operate, with the all-in-one interface.
- The automation features allow for CCF to currently run approximately 75% of our daily scripts with no user interaction.
- Monitoring was also easier, since the number of PCs used to run were reduced."
Alaska Native Tribal Health Consortium (ANTHC)
ANTHC is an Indian Health Service (IHS) hospital located in Anchorage, Alaska. They have leveraged EMUE with Siemen’s SIGNATURE® physician billing system since 2006. After seeing much success with SIGNATURE®, they wanted to use EMUE with MS4. They also utilize EMUE's web automation heavily.
Find out how ANTHC saved several FTE's, improved accuracy and efficiency, and added auditing to their payment posting and adjustment processes. Also, learn how they used EMUE to recover millions of dollars of lost revenue!
University of Texas Medical Branch (UTMB)
UTMB at Galveston is a large teaching hospital that uses Siemen's SIGNATURE® system to manage its physician billing. They, like many other facilities, have developed processes to leverage the use of Siemens OLIE. For UTMB, OLIE is used to:
- Automate posting of pre-paid deductibles as well as posting other payments and adjustments.
- Integrate SIGNATURE® with other systems, including Claims Manager and a custom, in-house database.
- Other miscellaneous tasks.
While there were certainly savings in the handing of the miscellaneous tasks, this case study will focus on the first 2, as they are well defined processes that we were able to accurately determine the amount of time saved as well as savings from hardware consolidation over their original OLIE™ processes.
