By assigning each patient a “medical home” — a primary care physician who is responsible for the patient’s health outcomes — SynerMed creates a team approach to the delivery of care in which the primary care physician coordinates with specialty and ancillary providers. In addition to enhancing quality of care and increasing access to needed care, this approach promotes identification, management and prevention of chronic illness, while reducing costs.
CONSULT creates an important synergy between medicine and technology. By significantly reducing initial face-to-face consultations between patients and specialists with secure, virtual, quick physician-to-physician communication, CONSULT additionally enables increased physician collaboration and PCP education while reducing the number of unnecessary office visits. CONSULT also results in faster delivery of specialty care and improves access to care for patients.
By connecting various stakeholders and offering secure, compliant interoperability, SynerMed is leading the industry toward standardized, immediate Health Information Exchange (HIE). Through remote access to a health IT infrastructure that includes electronic health records, health information exchange tools, and data collection and reporting capabilities, physicians are poised to receive full meaningful use incentives and rapid, consistent reimbursement payments.
SynerMed seamlessly connects more than 10,000 healthcare providers through SynerMedCONNECT, their unique, web-based provider portal. The central intelligence unit for our growing network, SynerMedCONNECT provides online practice and patient management by allowing health administrators and individual physicians to securely access, store and process information from anywhere, immediately. It offers a diverse menu of functions including authorizations, claims submissions and eligibility verification services.
SynerMed allows physicians to directly become part of an established, stable Accountable Care Organization while concurrently growing their independent practice. With central administrative support, utilization management and access to a network of primary care physicians, specialists, hospitals, and other healthcare providers, physicians can more easily coordinate care for their patients while ensuring compliance with various quality measurements.
