In a special solo session, Mahurin will enlighten audiences on the ways dictation can achieve multiple regulations, including the new Meaningful Use 2 (MU2) requirements, in a presentation entitled "Health Documentation Specialists' Role Can Stay Relevant in the EMR" on Thursday, July 24, 2014. "When the first round of Meaningful Use regulations came out, providers just assumed that they had to do away with dictation, a function that was essential to helping them rapidly create accurate medical records and ensure high quality of care," Mahurin explained. "During this session, I'm going to bust that myth wide open and show MTSOs how they can advance technologically and remain compliant."
Mahurin, an industry leader in the area of healthcare software, lead InfraWare's development team in creating this unique technological solution, which allows providers to use conventional dictation to achieve Meaningful Use and support HIPAA requirements. Visitors to the company's booth at the conference will be able to learn how this platform can save time, money and improve morale. "Our platform integrates with any electronic medical record (EMR/EHR) that is primed for Consolidated CDA as required for MU2," Mahurin said. "At the conference, we will show attendees how they can use our simple, but modernized dictation method to import structured data directly into a EMR."
At InfraWare's booth representatives will be able to walk attendees through its software platform and demonstrate its ability to integrate with EMR/EHR systems. They will also explain how the innovative programs that make up its comprehensive platform can enhance workflow. The platform includes:
Mobile Dictation - InfraWare's mobile app unchains doctors from the dictation nook, allowing them to securely dictate notes right into their smartphones any time, anywhere.
First Draft - InfraWare's automatic speech recognition software uses customized templates to generate a draft of the dictation that a transcriptionist will review and edit, resulting in lower costs and faster turnaround times.
Transcription - InfraWare believes that the human element is just as important as technology for reducing errors that may stymie productivity and decrease reimbursements.
EMR Integration - InfraWare integrates seamlessly with any EMR/EHR that is ready for MU2.
AHDI also invited Mahurin to participate in one of its most popular sessions, "The Great Debate." During this one-hour collegiate style back-and-forth, Mahurin will take the floor to debate the ongoing relevance of the Book of Style, one of three topics that will be hashed out by industry leaders.
"Our goal, our focus, has always been to help provide more meaningful work for individuals in the healthcare industry," Mahurin said. "With our solution doctors get more time to spend with patients, actually looking at them and not at a computer screen, while transcriptionists are empowered to use their expertise to improve the quality of medical records. Plus, with our First Draft recognition service, they can do so much more in much less time. This allows transcriptionists to take on more clients, while still producing accurate, high-quality records. Risk management professionals can rest easy knowing they'll have more comprehensive documentation with fewer errors and business managers can feel confident that they will optimize reimbursements."
