Birmingham, AL, November 15, 2010 – SourceMedical today announced a partnership with mTuitive, Inc. to help ASCs and surgeons improve postoperative reporting and streamline medical coding processes. Built upon mTuitive’s electronic postoperative reporting solution and fully integrated with the AdvantX, Vision and SurgiSource applications, SourcePlus OpNote will provide ASCs and specialty hospitals with immediate access to surgeons’ postoperative reports and coding data leading to more rapid and accurate revenue cycle processes.

“As an orthopedic surgeon who does exclusively outpatient procedures, I see significant value in the integration of mTuitive’s OpNote into SourceMedical’s management software such as improved reporting for participating ASCs,” said Dr. John Mattson, an active user of the OpNote system. “After a short learning curve, surgeons will find that SourcePlus OpNote is faster than dictating and far less onerous for surgeons as the repetition present in 90 percent of operative reports is eliminated. We now produce superior operative reports while generating additional revenue. Integrating this technology with SourceMedical’s ASCs management software is a win for both surgeons and facilities.”

With SourcePlus OpNote, ASCs are no longer required to spend time and money having surgeons’ postoperative reports transcribed. SourcePlus OpNote makes surgeon reports immediately available via the fully web-based platform to the surgeon and ASC staff. By standardizing documentation and distributing reports simultaneously to all stakeholders immediately after approvals are entered, the entire coding and revenue cycle process is accelerated.

Animated Differences Between Pathologists & Surgeons

(some language NSFW)

A video highlighting what Pathologists mean vs. what Surgeons mean when they’re talking about the same case:

How can we get both parties speaking the same language?

A Scanner Darkly

The awkward phase. It’s an unpleasant nebulous moment between two well-defined points. That uncomfortable time as people go from childhood and adulthood. Or that fearful moment full of panic as you go from dating to being in a serious relationship with someone else. It’s that interim state where you’re no longer A but you’re not quite B either.

Medical reporting is currently in its own awkward phase.

In the not so distant past lies Paper Based Reporting – filling out forms using pen and pencil, typewriters, printing out reports and having physical copies of every document located somewhere. This is the world of triplicate, of faxes and envelopes, of white-out and paper shredders. Paper charts physically shipped or moved from practice to practice, facility to facility. Paperland, as I like to call it, does have its advantages, though: a physical document that proves that something happened and to which people can refer; an artifact that precisely records how something occurred at that date and time, without any fear of tampering; a collection of data that cannot be wiped out by a virus or any sort of IT snafu.

Meanwhile, in the not so distant future lies Electronic Based Reporting – entering every information via computers. Using synoptic reports to enter structured data, information is culled directly from machines (think of vital signs being automatically recorded and logged), or easily entered using touchscreens, mouse & keyboard or a stylus of some sort. Electronic reports allow for faster sending of information to a wider range of places. Specialized fields ensure consistency in language and information captured. Required fields and “checklist” approaches encourage more completeness in reporting and more pertinent information is readily captured.1 However, Tronworld, as I’ll refer to it, has its own share of problems. Information can be lost or stolen without any physical backups. There’s ensuring that all systems are speaking the same language when interfacing, so there’s no loss of data or need to reformat the data every time you go from one system to another.

So, between here and there, betwixt Paperland and Tronworld, lies us currently. How are people bridging the divide between the two different modes of reporting? The answer…might surprise you.
