Improve healthcare services with gloEMR

Electronic medical records, or EMR, are making their way into doctors’ offices and healthcare institutions all over the country. Because of their benefits in enhancing medical practice, EMRs are the perfect tools for busy practices. And in the field of EMR, the market leader is gloStream.

gloStream for healthcare businesses

Healthcare professionals have always adopted high-end technology to provide better medical services to their patients. Whether it’s medical equipment, electronic medical records (EMR) or patient data management systems, they only use the best tools to ensure the safety and security of patients and their data.

Bring your practice into the 21st century with gloStream

The medical field has always been a leader in technology for patient treatment, and now technology can help your practice becoming pacesetting. How? By leveraging the cloud as a tool to provide exceptional care. gloStream’s cloud-based performance management service, gloCare, is used by thousands of medical staff across the country who want to ensure they have quick and easy access to critical patient information.

GloStream: Evolving to meet demands

Many health-care practices want to remain independent practitioners rather than merge with larger groups, but in order to do so, they need help managing their offices—specifically, addressing increasing regulation and decreasing revenue.

In response, gloStream, which brought you gloEMR, has evolved from an information technology and consulting firm to a performance-management business.

Products focus on revenue management

The September 2014 American Health Information Management Association (AHIMA) event in Sand Diego emphasizes the importance of technology, including tools for computer-assisted physician documentation, information technology designed to ease the transition to ICD-10, and revenue-cycle management, with many of the new products being showcased focusing on those areas.

Bill could increase use of telemedicine

Physicians have little reason to engage in telemedicine because they typically aren’t reimbursed for services rendered virtually – but now two Mississippi senators are seeking to change that.

The Telehealth Enhancement Act, introduced by Senators Thad Cochran and Roger Wicker, alters Medicare payment policies to cover telemedicine, among other things.

Managing the revenue cycle with gloStream

Revenue cycle management is a key driver of progress in health-care organizations, according to a recent Gartner report, but it must be supported by the right systems.

As soon as a patient makes an appointment, revenue cycle management begins.

We’re ready for ICD-10

President Obama has authorized yet another delay in the implementation of ICD-10 after the Senate approved the measure as part of the Sustainable Growth Rate legislation on April 1.

To IT vendors who haven’t prepared for the transition, the delay is a relief – but to us at gloStream, it’s a disappointment, as we had practiced testing ICD-10 codes with one of the nation’s largest medical billing and claims companies in October of 2013. That’s right – nearly one year in advance of original ICD-10 October 1, 2014, deadline, we had practices seeing results that would ease the transition from ICD-9 to ICD-10.

We’re not alone.
