Healthcare Administrative Partners’ Clinical Analytics Innovation Receives IHI Recognition for Second Consecutive Year
Media, PA, November 2, 2018 – Healthcare Administrative Partners (HAP), a provider of comprehensive revenue cycle management solutions for specialty physician practices, along with their client Radiology Group of Abington (RGA), were recently selected to again present their storyboard at the Institute for Healthcare Improvement (IHI) National Forum on Quality Improvement in Healthcare from December 9-12 in Orlando, FL. This marks the 30th year of the conference that draws over 5,500 healthcare professionals together to discuss ways quality improvement (QI) can positively impact patient safety and care.
HAP’s and RGA’s submission, entitled “Process Improvement for Follow-Up Radiology Report Recommendations of Lung Nodules over a Three year Period,” will be presented by Doron Schneider, MD FACP, Chief Safety and Quality Officer, Abington Hospitals (part of the Jefferson Health System), during the event’s Storyboard Reception on Tuesday, December 11 from 4:40pm – 6:30pm. The submission builds on the story introduced in last year’s poster that focused on the initial development of their clinical analytics process that detects overdue patients follow ups, and sends letters to those patients encouraging them to consult with their physician for possible follow up studies.
Sharon Taylor, Chief Clinical Informatics Officer at HAP, states that, “We are excited to once again present at the IHI conference so we can showcase the results of our continued hard work with RGA. Since last year, we have loaded an additional two years’ worth of data into our system, and the new numbers validate that we can reduce the risk of missing potentially important clinical findings for the patient and clinician alike.”
Chair of Radiology at RGA, Philip Lim, MD, said, “Patients are often unaware of the significance of radiology findings or follow up recommendations reported after imaging procedures. By working with HAP, we have been able to close the loop when it comes to communicating those findings to primary care physicians and patients. We hope this leads to more people getting the care they need.”
