Trace Helps Improve Communication at Cypress Fairbanks Medical Center

Case Studies, Communications

Cypress Fairbanks Medical Center, a 186-bed facility, needed to improve inter-departmental communications. With lots of training inaccuracies and patients claiming they were never told what they owed, Cypress had no way to prove their staff followed the right procedures when a payer or physician dispute occurred. Additionally, the medical center had inefficent processes of manually copying payer websites by hand and valuable time was wasted trying to track down answers to the “he said, she said” scenarios.

Trace by Vyne Medical was implemented to eliminate disputes by capturing all communications. Every interaction is now captured in some way that can be used for various purposes.

HOW TRACE IS USED

  • Training tool for moments when staff claim they said one thing, but the recording shows something different.
  • Efficiently capture payer’s web sites; with a click of a button an image of the web page is saved directly into Trace.
  • Dispelling patient claims that they were never told what they owed. Staff can go to any computer in the hospital and pull up recordings showing when the patient was told what to pay.
  • Saved staff frustration from a disgruntled employee at a doctor’s office who continually used unprofessional tactics.

“Trace helps ensure that we’re doing all the right things that make a positive patient experience happen.” -Tony Lovett, Director of Patient Access
