Artifact Health, which provides the first mobile physician query platform, announced today it has been deployed by Jupiter Medical Center, the only hospital in Palm Beach, Martin, St. Lucie and Indian River counties to receive a 4-star quality and safety rating from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), to streamline their physician query process and reduce administrative burden on their providers.
"We were looking for a convenient way to communicate with our providers regarding physician queries," said Marlene Goodwin-Esola, MSN, RNC, NE-BC, Director of Clinical Documentation Improvement at Jupiter Medical Center. "Artifact has simplified our process of sending and receiving queries and provided our clinicians with a tool to answer queries quickly and easily so they can remain focused on patient care."
Artifact's HIPAA-compliant, cloud-based, mobile query platform allows physicians to quickly and compliantly respond to a query with as few as three taps on their smartphone. By providing physicians with a process that is quick and easy to use, Artifact customers gain significant improvements in hospital and physician coding accuracy and publicly reported quality measures.
"The Artifact platform has enabled us to accurately code much more quickly," said Susan Denny, RHIA, CHTS-WP, Director of Health Information Services at Jupiter Medical Center. "The automated tracking and reporting provides transparency between the CDI and coding teams, and the mobile app eliminates the burdensome query process for our providers."
"We are extremely excited to partner with Jupiter Medical Center to alleviate administrative burden for their busy providers at this difficult time during the pandemic," said Marisa MacClary, Co-founder and CEO of Artifact Health.
