peervue, PQRS

PeerVue's  QICS (qualitative intelligence and communication system) is a single-platform system that helps automate workflow for closed-loop communications, integrated patient care and strategic healthcare business management. Peer Review, ED discrepancies, teaching files, PQRS alerting and coding discrepancies are among the dozens of solutions that QICS can automate directly into a picture archiving and communication system (PACS).

The new PQRS QICS solution helps organizations leverage reimbursement bonus opportunities immediately in accordance with departmental business rules and PQRS requirements. The solution identifies the opportunity, alerts the appropriate staff and provides instructions for follow-through to avoid penalties. QICS also delivers the summary reporting necessary to properly document the event for CMS reimbursement.

Since PQRS has gained traction and permanency in the healthcare industry, the requirements are becoming stricter and will soon be the source of reimbursement penalties if not completed to specified standards. Traditional HIS and RIS systems are not designed to support the level of detail required to alert users to these opportunities.

The new Throughput Management workflow solution automates and tracks a variety of exam throughput workflows. QICS can identify trends that can be addressed through training and used to drive quality improvement and reduce associated costs so more patients can be treated with the same amount of resources.

New Coding Discrepancy Management workflow solution was created based on the recognition that accurately capturing medical coded data is vital to help ensure that radiology departments receive optimum reimbursement and collect comprehensive benchmarking data to help improve facilitating clinical and financial decision making, healthcare policies, and tracking patient trends. Coding staff typically lacks an effective workflow and communication tool to document coding issues identified in diagnostic reports. Resolving these issues is usually a manual, labor-intensive process, impacting productivity and jeopardizing accuracy.  peerVue Coding Discrepancy Management fills that gap.

Encompassing these and a wide range of additional solutions, QICS is a single-platform system that helps automate workflow for closed-loop communications, integrated patient care, and strategic healthcare business management.  PQRS, Throughput Management and Coding Discrepancy Management are among the new solutions that complement Peer Review, ED Discrepancies, Teaching Files and more that QICS has can automate directly into PACS.
