Patient Acuity Overview

Bill the patient for the nursing care REALLY provided. Our web or touchscreen based patient acuity documentation system is FULLY integrated with Meditech Admissions, Scheduling and B/AR. Nurses SIMPLY document each patient’s acuity via touchscreens or the web. These values are then be summarized and posted to B/AR as the patient's daily room charge. This solution has been successfully implemented in inpatient/outpatient clinics and the ED for timely and accurate tracking of patient care hours.
