Empowering Hospital Work-From-Home Solutions in Response to COVID-19
As our nation and healthcare system confronts the challenges of COVID-19, we are all being asked to leverage social distancing as a means by which to slow the transmission of the virus. Many hospitals are responding by enabling certain roles like patient access and case management personnel to work remotely – keeping employees healthy, productive and connected in anticipation of an influx of those needing care.
Vyne Medical and our Trace® platform provides an integrated suite of voice, fax, and image solutions that users can access virtually anywhere, allowing hospitals to sustain continuity of care regardless of the location of their employees. Over the last few years, several hospital and health system clients have successfully used Trace to empower their teams to work remotely. In response to COVID-19 many more clients have begun to leverage this capability.
There has never been a better time to take advantage of the benefits of Trace and its work-from-home functionality.

Creating an “Anywhere” Revenue Cycle Team
Work-from-home programs are on the rise in nearly every industry, and health care is no exception. More and more healthcare organizations are now following the work-from-home trend for eligible revenue cycle roles such as scheduling, pre-registration, insurance verification, billing and collections.
The benefits of work-from-home strategies are well documented, with studies showing marked improvements in productivity, job satisfaction and work-life balance among employees. But how do health systems effectively manage security, compliance and collaboration among remote employees?
Vyne Medical can help. Our Trace platform can help create a more complete patient record by Connecting Disconnected Data both at home and in the office.
Using the Trace Anywhere package, you can move your Revenue Cycle employees out of the office and into their homes, saving money, reducing spacing concerns, and increasing team productivity. NAHAM (Producer). (2016). Working From Home: Best Practices by Patient Access Leaders in the Know [Webinar].
The Trace solution enables a secure, paperless environment for centralizing all voice, fax, document and image communications remotely or in the office. Records are indexed to the patient and interfaced to critical systems, such as the EHR, to improve workflow, compliance, service levels & team collaboration. New tools, such as custom dashboards and tailored reports, allow hospital management to monitor remote employee productivity, compliance and quality as if the employee were working in the office.
The Trace Anywhere solution allows your team to become 100% paperless, with seamless integration with your hospital or health system’s EHR, and comes with built in dashboards to help you, as a manager, monitor and track team performance, quality, compliance, and consistency. With the Trace Anywhere solution you have the option to get:
- Tracker™– An intuitive web interface of voice, fax and electronic communication. Records are indexed by patient and other custom criteria for easy search, sort, delivery and retrieval.
- PixCert® – Capture web pages, patient records, scanned documents and images through any web-enabled PC. The tool captures activities performed through web sites, electronic documents and emails. Captured images are indexed and can be routed through Trace or electronically faxed to any outside party.
- FaxCert® (if enabled) – Facilitate electronic faxing – eliminating the need to print, scan and manually fax documents. The tool automatically captures both inbound and outbound faxes, along with details such as sender/recipient, date/time and proof of receipt. Faxes are digitized, indexed by patient and available for retrieval and routing through Trace. Alerts provide notice of new faxes, unsuccessful transmission and delivery confirmation.
- Voice On-Demand™ – Facilitate user-initiated recording of incoming and outgoing calls and voicemails. A hardware connection between the phone and PC gives users the ability to index, bookmark and add comments to calls while recording.
- Trace Quality Assurance™ – Used to perform quality assurance of staff communication by one manager. Custom scorecards and reporting tools give hospitals the ability to track and trend quality scores by team, agent and question.
