Archbold Medical Center Selects Vyne Medical to Improve Financial Performance and Patient Experience
Knoxville, Tenn., January 21, 2015— Vyne Medical, today announced a partnership with Archbold Medical Center – a four hospital regional healthcare system that has served the people of South Georgia and North Florida for nearly 90 years. The system will join nearly 400 other hospitals and health systems partnering with Vyne Medical to further improve patient experience, financial performance, physician and staff alignment and patient safety and quality.
The agreement includes implementation of Vyne Medical’s Trace® platform, a healthcare specific content management system that manages voice, fax and image content across the health system.
“Our goals with Trace are to increase staff productivity, reduce denials and improve the patient experience,” says Becky Poole, Director of Patient Access at Archbold.
Trace will provide the ability for the hospital to receive faxes through one shared number and share them system-wide regardless of physical location, simply by looking them up by patient. This will also increase staff productivity, which will allow for more time to focus on the patient experience.
Archbold also anticipates to benefit from phone call capturing features, components of the system that allow hospitals to establish proof against complaints surrounding level of care issues related to EMTALA regulations, and help facilitate claim authorization. Capturing phone calls also helps ensure patients receive accurate information regarding their financial obligations, accelerating the hospital’s goal of improving the patient experience and increasing upfront collections.
In the future, the Case Management department plans to look at the benefits of implementing the Trace system.
