IDS Awarded Service Contract with Premier Healthcare Alliance
FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. --(Business Wire)--
Integrated Document Solutions (IDS), a leader in healthcare
information technology, announced it has been awarded a 3-year group
purchasing contract to provide transcription services at specially
negotiated pricing and terms to Premier's alliance of more than 2,700
hospitals and 90,000 providers nationwide.
The contract allows eligible members to gain significant operational
cost savings through improved clinical documentation processes. In
addition to medical transcription and editing services, Premier members
can realize greater efficiencies using IDS cloud technology for
comprehensive clinical reporting and information and image sharing,
speech recognition and workflow management.
With the introduction of EHR, many HIM directors assumed transcription
would become obsolete. That did not happen; however, EHR did bring on a
whole set of new challenges. Many physicians have experienced a loss in
productivity, mobility and face time with their patients. IDS helps
providers mitigate losses with mobile and enhanced workflow solutions.
We're excited to be selected as supplier for this alliance, dedicated
to leading the transformation to high-quality, cost-efficient
healthcare," said CEO of IDS Yaniv Dagan. "At the heart of the IDS
technology infrastructure is the transcription piece, but we realized
from the start that with our expertise in interoperability and
assembling documents from different sources and different HIMs, IDS can
play a pivotal role in helping healthcare organizations of all sizes
streamline medical record workflows and overcome the challenges
associated with EHR adoption. With IDS technology enabling
interconnectivity, our clients can bridge gaps, gain operational
efficiencies and achieve meaningful use goals."
transcription services provide incomparable flexibility and
reliability. Physicians can document clinical cases with traditional
dictation -- using a mobile device, digital handheld recorder, or
toll-free landline -- voice recognition, automated template match, or
they can employ a hybrid approach, combining a number of methods. The
IDS transcription platform incorporates rigorous quality assurance
measures that track the report completion times and accuracy rates of
medical transcriptionists (MTs). Physicians have the option to use IDS
professional transcriptionists and editors or opt for in-house MTs to
work on the IDS platform.
HIM directors and practice managers gain insight with enterprise
analytical reports for key indicators such as report turnaround time,
productivity by physician or location, and savings achieved through
speech recognition technology.
Owned by hospitals, health systems and other providers, Premier operates
a leading healthcare purchasing network with more than $4 billion in
annual savings. Headquartered in Charlotte, N.C., Premier also has an
office in Washington.
