South Georgia Medical Center
South Georgia Medical Center's Inpatient Rehabilitation Unit used paper throughout their day-to-day workflow. Paper presented a number of familiar challenges: double documentation, charts not always available when clinicians needed access to patient information, and IRFPAI score variances between clinicians. This made it difficult for the team to maintain high levels of quality documentation and efficiency throughout the patient’s stay.
Additionally, the increasing demands for electronic medical records, and the rapid changes taking place in the inpatient rehabilitation industry, made it obvious to SGMC that it was time to transition their inpatient rehabilitation unit to an automated workflow. According to SGMC’s Administrative Director of Rehabilitation Services Paivi Parssinen, “We looked at a few solutions and realized that Mediware was the only solutions provider who truly understands the distinct needs of inpatient rehabilitation.”
Since the implementation of the MediLinks® Inpatient software solution, South Georgia Medical Center has been able to:
- Maintain adherence to regulatory standards from admission to discharge
- Focus on patient problems and overcome barriers to discharge
- Improve documentation and increase Medicare reimbursement by an average of $1,020 per patient
