Personal Achievements

After having worked with ETM since it was first introduced in 3.0 and implementing this product at numerous clients, Timothy has developed universal design enhancements, custom workflows, and Caché Reports that add tremendous value.

Design Enhancements

  • The Indicator Column – Prioritizes rework and reduces user workflow errors by identifying tasks that are Returned, Tickler Returns, Repeats, and Transfers
  • Tickler Returns – Workflow specific Tickling system with management-driven hard-caps
  • Returns – Workflow specific controls to educate users on mistakes and inform management of those errors
  • Automated Commercial Requeue and flip to Self Pay After Insurance
  • Rejection Roll Up with Task Queuing – Allows management to dictate Rejection ownership by rejection code and determine whether tasks are worked concurrently or sequentially ETM Stage Field - By adding Payer Position, FSC category, and new Stages the field now offers invoice level reporting with enough summary information to eliminate hours of management research just to answer the question, “What is going on with the A/R?”
  • No Redundancy Workflow Design – Through balancing controls the client dictates what, if any, redundancy exists between workflows eliminating inefficiencies caused by users sharing responsibility

Custom Workflows

  • Previsit Workflow – A registration/financial editing system that catches common issues prior to patients arrival and allows you to remediate them before or during the patient’s visit via integration with SCHED
  • Correspondence Workflow – Correspondence tasking with or without EDM integration that allows management to understand how much A/R is received daily, direct correspondence based on type, eliminate follow up on tasks not requiring effort, automate follow up on common types of correspondence and integrate to other ETM workflows to eliminate inefficiencies
  • Call Center Workflow – Utilizes ETM to allow call center representatives to quickly research patient accounts and drive subsequent department-specific follow up

Caché Reports & Product Development

  • Net Productivity Report – Gives users credit for work performed and discredits Returns
  • True Workable Volume Report - Workflow specific volume report that removes unworkable inventory (e.g. Claim Edits that resolve in first claim run)
  • KAVart Developer - A Caché query Automated Reporting Tool that allows clients to design reports with pivot table, graphical, and detail formats and then schedule the outputs to be automatically updated and delivered via email or stored onto a shared drive. The product bridges the gap of real-time/automated informational needs that cannot wait on warehouse database updates
