SCI Solutions said in a release it has upgraded its health care scheduling solution, Schedule Maximizer.
The cloud-based enterprise health care scheduling platform provides a seamless system for health providers. The upgrade affects the scheduling services for multi-location health care organizations and supports their security needs, the release said.
“Unprecedented provider consolidation has resulted in more health systems operating vast networks of hospitals, imaging centers and outpatient clinics across multiple states and diverse points of service,” SCI Solutions CEO Joel French said in the release. “After acquiring hospitals and physician practices, surprisingly few have been able to demonstrate the economic value of their increased scale. In sharp contrast, SCI’s technologies have enabled our clients to realize measurable unit cost reduction and outpatient revenue gains from their new scale by standardizing and centralizing all patient intake workflows and presenting a consistent brand across complex operations.”
With the increase in mergers and acquisitions since 2009, health systems have struggled with coordinating a variety of systems. Schedule Maximizer supports multi-entity health systems, electronic to-do lists for schedulers and insurance payer and plan management tools.
“Instant self-scheduling and prompt insurance pre-authorizations deliver long sought-after convenience for patients while eliminating unexpected financial surprises for them,” French said in the release. “This means patients receive clinically appropriate, in-network care from the right provider with the right equipment at their preferred location while large health systems smartly leverage their consolidated capacity and reduce labor costs necessary to intake more patients.”
