Precyse Solutions Introduces the Precyse Performance Benchmark(TM) to Establish HIM Best Practices
Precyse enables peak performance by establishing benchmarks and a mechanism for best practice sharing
WAYNE, Pa., Oct. 8 /-- Precyse Solutions, the leader in driving peak performance within Health Information Management (HIM) departments, today announced its introduction of the Precyse Performance Benchmark, a dashboard that enables HIM departments to benchmark themselves against other HIM departments in order to improve cash flow, reduce operating costs, ensure regulatory compliance and improve patient safety.
By utilizing the Precyse Performance Benchmark, hospitals can identify areas of strength and weakness by measuring performance in the key areas of discharged not final billed (DNFB), record processing turnaround time (TAT), transcription turnaround time (TAT), and delinquent record frequency. HIM departments are also given clear direction on how to improve performance through the use of education, training and process improvements.
"At Precyse Solutions, we are concerned about reducing costs and increasing the efficiency and operational effectiveness of HIM departments," said Rob Healy, President, Precyse Solutions. "Until now there has not been a dashboard of key performance indicators that healthcare institutions can use as a guideline to measure their own HIM performance. Our intention is to establish that standard, help HIM departments measure their performance, and identify their strengths and areas of needed improvement against the benchmark standard. Precyse can then assist HIM departments by providing best practices and innovative technologies targeted at the areas needing improvement in order to enable peak performance."
HIM measurement and performance is critical to the success of healthcare institutions. The Precyse Performance Benchmark provides hospitals an effective way to measure themselves against their peer group, using metrics segmented by number of beds, hospital systems, and geography. By using the Precyse Performance Benchmark as a measurement tool, hospitals will be able to improve the quality and delivery of their healthcare information while improving operations and compliance and providing cost savings at the same time.
