T-System Increases Workflow Efficiency, Speeds Billing for Keystone Healthcare Management

April 24, 2008 - Keystone Healthcare Management Inc., a physician staffing, management and consulting company specializing in emergency department (ED) operations, has consolidated its charting needs with T-System Inc.

By moving from two other charting systems to The T-System for Physicians, Keystone said it has lowered operational costs, increased coding accuracy, shortened reimbursement time, and simplified compliance procedures for its client hospitals.

Founded in 1996, Keystone is highly regarded for its outsourced ED staffing and management services. The company currently serves 17 suburban and rural hospitals in New York and Mississippi.

"Our value-add is attention to detail," said Glenn Adams, president of Keystone Healthcare Management. "In addition to providing highly skilled physicians, nurse practitioners, and physician assistants, our administrative expertise ensures that hospitals receive the most cost effective staffing solution. We also know how to train providers to ensure quality and thorough documentation so that clinical errors are minimized and reimbursement is appropriately captured."

It was this specialized knowledge that led Adams and his team to begin evaluating The T-System for Physicians last year.

The maker said usability and room for customizations within the templates are key strengths of The T-System. The system now has more than 1,700 clinical deployments around the world. The paper-based charting system speeds documentation time, one of the most challenging aspects of emergency department operations. Built around an easy circle-and-backslash paradigm, The T-System for Physicians, the centerpiece of the system, reduces risk by producing a clear, defensible record in a very short period of time, the manufacturer said.

After seeing the efficiencies possible by using The T-System for Physicians, Adams and his staff made the decision to move from its two existing charting systems to The T-System. In December 2007 Keystone deployed the new charting system in the emergency departments of Bertrand Chaffee Hospital (Springville NY); Inter-Community Memorial Hospital (Newfane NY); Lockport Memorial Hospital (Lockport NY); and Hardy Wilson Memorial Hospital (Hazelhurst MS). A fifth hospital, Noxubee General Hospital in Macon, MS, just implemented the system in April.
