At the same time, an order for lab work can be entered at the nursing station and printed in the lab. The results are then keyed into a terminal in the lab and transmitted instantly back to the appropriate nursing station, "saving five to six man hours per day on manually posting those results," according to Vernon Davis, MT, Chief Laboratory Technician. In addition to improving direct patient care, the system is an effective cost containment tool. "The first year after the order communications applications was installed, the Medical Center's revenues increased," said Clinton Eaves, Controller. This application virtually eliminates incorrect charging by simultaneously charging a test to a patients bill when that mW' V an old tradition" Dial624-G385 test result is transmitted back to the nursing station. To further increase speed and accuracy of billing and reimbursement. Medicare and Blue Cross claims are transferred electronically to Blue Cross computers located in Jackson, eliminating days of processing time at both ends. Other functions made easier and more cost effective by the Hospital Patient Management System include admissions, discharges, accounts receivable, general ledger, accounts payable, medical records, case mix management, DRG reporting, personnel, and payroll. "The system's flexibility, ease-of-use and expandibility have allowed the hospital to keep up with rapidly changing regulations and requirements." says Bob Nance, Director of Data Processing. "In fact, the soft ware company has incorporated several of the ideas of James Price, Director of Pharmacy, in to their base pharmacy packet. I think with the flexibility of this system, we will be able to meet the challenge of running our hospital lor a long time. $(D)
