VA Minneapolis Health Care System Doubles Radiology Scheduling Efficiency and Physician Productivity by Implementing Electronic Protocoling

In addition to enabling the Minneapolis VAHCS to double patient scheduling productivity, the collaboration has resulted in an increase in radiology scheduling efficiency from 14 days to 1 day, on average, a 75% improvement. Foundations has also increased the consistency in workflow processes and results and has enabled the organization to achieve a 100% paperless order-to-day-of-procedure workflow.

June 3, 2021 —HealthLevel, Inc., innovator of Foundations, a business operations analytics platform for healthcare organizations, announced that its partnership with the Veterans Health Administration’s Minneapolis VA Health Care System (VAHCS) has yielded significant productivity benefits to the institution. In addition to enabling the Minneapolis VAHCS to double patient scheduling productivity, the collaboration has resulted in an increase in radiology scheduling efficiency from 14 days to 1 day, on average, a 75% improvement. Foundations has also increased the consistency in workflow processes and results and has enabled the organization to achieve a 100% paperless order-to-day-of-procedure workflow.

HealthLevel, Inc. first forged a relationship with the Minneapolis VAHCS in 2018 resulting in the initial implementation of the data analytics capability of Foundations. After successful rollout of this phase, electronic protocoling was implemented across the organization in a first-of-kind partnership. Foundations is a business operations platform that combines real-time clinical, financial, and operational data with historical information. Its deployment enabled radiology staff and leadership to reduce costs as well as discover ways to improve efficiency and safety. The user-friendly analytics tool is intuitively designed to be easy to learn and use, allowing every team member to personalize their access to actionable insights.

The Foundations business operations platform is being deployed across a growing number of VA facilities and VISN networks because it provides accurate and actionable insights at the user’s fingertips and helps leadership transform operations into a high-efficiency, real-time healthcare enterprise.

“We are fortunate to get a chance to work with an organization like VA Minneapolis, who is doing everything they can to offer better healthcare to our Veterans. They took the initiative to implement Foundations as their data platform and then expanded the relationship to set new standards of care safety and efficiency with electronic protocoling.  I always look forward to visiting them, the team is so on top of their work and appreciative of the partnership too, all with their typical solid work ethic.” says Parag Paranjpe, CEO of HealthLevel.
