TAMPA, Fla., Oct. 12 /PRNewswire/ -- Physicians in ambulatory practice and their administrative leaders can have unsurpassed visibility into their business and clinical data with the Sage Practice Analytics v 5.5 business and clinical intelligence system, released today by Sage. Sage Software Healthcare, LLC, provides integrated electronic health records, EDI applications and practice management systems to thousands of ambulatory care practices throughout North America
William Henderson, Practice Administrator at Upstate Neurology Consultants, LLP, in Albany, New York, said the graphical representation provided by Sage Practice Analytics dashboards helps him quickly convey to his physicians the impact of data. "I regularly use Sage Practice Analytics at physician meetings to supplement the normal business reports my providers need," Henderson said.
"The dashboard view in Sage Practice Analytics has helped us view changes over time in our hospital work, or increases - and declines - in specific procedures. Providers can see statistics, both graphically and 'by the numbers,' that reflect just their work as well as the practice as a whole. Parameters for the dashboards can be easily changed while viewing the graphical representation of the data, so physicians can ask questions such as, 'how timely is Blue Cross paying us this year? Is Dr. Smith referring more patients to our practice this year? How many procedures are we doing compared to last year ... and how does that compare to years prior?' and get immediate answers."
From a clinical perspective, physicians use Sage Practice Analytics to examine key pieces of clinical information instantly and at a glance. For example, an endocrinologist who wants to understand the impact a new certified diabetes educator is having on the practice's population of patients with diabetes can instantly examine population A1C results over time. This allows the physician to compare these important test results before and after the addition of the educator to the practice.
"The vast amounts of data produced by an electronic health records system can be overwhelming," said Lindy Benton, Chief Operating Officer, Sage Software Healthcare, LLC. "Sage Practice Analytics makes drill-down analysis a breeze. The visual representation of data available in our dashboards enables physicians and other practice professionals to analyze key performance and outcomes indicators and make well informed decisions for the benefit of their practices and their patients."
Sage Practice Analytics version 5.5 can be seen at MGMA Booth #1517.
