Emdat Platform Brings Financial and Productivity Benefits

MADISON, WI--(Marketwired - June 12, 2013) - Emdat Inc., a leading provider of technology solutions designed to complement EHR documentation, announced a new case study today highlighting the time- and money-saving benefits their solutions brought to Illinois Bone and Joint Institute (IBJI).

With over 100 physicians providing orthopedic, rheumatologic, and podiatric services to more than 500,000 patients in Northeastern Illinois each year, Illinois Bone and Joint Institute (IBJI) needed a documentation solution that would be both economical and effective in maintaining clinician productivity. Emdat's unique pricing model and robust technology promised to do just that -- decrease documentation costs and dramatically improve workflow and documentation efficiency.

Just six months after the initial implementation in their Libertyville division, all IBJI providers were using Emdat alongside their EHR. Across its divisions, IBJI realized a 50%, year-over-year average cost savings in documentation and correspondence costs.

"IBJI is a quantifiable example of the success we have had with top medical facilities," says Emdat CEO Randy Olver. "Our solution delivers the provider productivity and satisfaction that may be missing with other documentation methods available today. The ability to increase care quality while minimizing cost and supporting meaningful use objectives makes us the right fit for facilities who want to leverage their EHR with minimal resistance."

Emdat Mobile, a free mobile app that allows clinicians to create documentation on the go, was a significant factor in IBJI's success story. Emdat Mobile provides access to patient schedules and historic clinical information during the dictation process and compounds efficiency with document and dictation templates. By streamlining the documentation process, clinicians can maintain pre-EHR patient volumes without increasing the length of their workday. Both revenue capacity and patient satisfaction are retained.

 "With Emdat Mobile, providers can see their patient schedule, dictate on the fly, upload, review, edit and authenticate with ease," said Clara Joyce, Practice Administrator of IBJI - Libertyville. "It gives them the freedom to focus on their patients during exams and quickly complete the task of documentation."

Beyond the financial benefits, Emdat has boosted clinician and staff productivity, leading to increased satisfaction. Clinicians are pleased that Emdat facilitates patient-focused care and thorough documentation with its flexible, time-saving, easy-to-use platform.
