NASHVILLE, Tenn., July 8, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Pomona Valley Hospital Medical Center (PVHMC), a regional not-for-profit health care system in Southern California, has partnered with Ludi, Inc., a health care technology and physician-advocacy firm, to implement a digital platform and mobile app that automates the way PVHMC pays their contracted medical providers.
Specifically, Ludi's award-winning DocTime Log® allows PVHMC's doctors to track their time on-the-go using a mobile device or computer, and gather the necessary approvals for that work. The DocTime Log system then calculates payments, ensuring they are within scope of each physician contract. Ludi's platform was designed with direct feedback from physicians, so it's easy-to-use and payments to doctors are faster and more seamless.
"We're fully committed to improving efficiency and transparency in our operations," said Ken Nakamoto, MD, Vice President of the Medical Staff at PVHMC. "Ludi's technology gives us a unique opportunity to meet that goal by moving our physician time-tracking approach completely off of paper and making the entire payment process simple and transparent from start to finish. It's a win-win for our doctors and administrative teams."
"Being physician advocates ourselves, we're thrilled that Pomona Valley Hospital Medical Center is taking such a forward-thinking approach," said Gail Peace, Founder & CEO of Ludi. "Paying contracted medical providers can be a cumbersome and confusing process with plenty of pitfalls along the way. Pomona Valley Hospital Medical Center's decision underscores what we're seeing more and more of in the market: innovative hospitals leveraging automation to not only enhance their operations and physician strategies, but also to stay compliant with the complex regulatory landscape."
