VCU Health Systems

Project Description:
The PatientKeeper Physician Information System deployed by VCU Health Systems integrates data from multiple healthcare information systems across the medical center into a single unified view that allows physicians to automate their day and improve patient care. Physicians and other healthcare providers can access information via mobile technology or Web-based portals or both. From appointment schedules to automated entry of reimbursement charges, physicians and healthcare providers can be informed wherever they areat the bedside or across town at their office. VCU says this solution also reduces the time it takes to submit charges, reduces missed charges and improves the coding accuracy of billing, contributing to improved financial performance.
