Multi-specialty Medical Provider Accelerates Path to Enhanced Patient Care and Efficiency Objectives Through GuideIT Services

Major Medical Record Abstraction Project Completed To Exacting Quality Standards, On-Time and Under-Budget

GuideIT, a market leader in redefining the delivery of information technology, today announced that it has completed a major medical record abstraction project in support of a clinical-systems-oriented business initiative for a multi-specialty medical provider.

After growing to more than 1,200 primary care physicians and specialists and 300 medical care delivery sites, this leading multi-specialty medical provider undertook a clinical system consolidation initiative in order to achieve a single patient record, facilitate an effective continuum of care and realize cost efficiencies through the elimination of multiple legacy clinical systems.  Because of the number of disparate legacy systems to be consolidated, an automated conversion of more than 240 thousand patient records was not feasible resulting in medical abstraction being selected as the most effective conversion method. 

Requiring an accelerated conversion process, GuideIT created a project approach, established a project management office and assembled a team of more than 65 specialists in approximately three weeks.  Upon project launch, GuideIT implemented a quality management program to ensure both the quality and productivity standards were met and that the customer received daily updates.  The project resulted in the conversion of more than 340 thousand medical records and achieved or exceeded all project objectives to enable the new clinical platform to become fully operational and the customer to achieve its enhanced patient care and efficiency objectives.

“Faced with time, quality and budget constraints, we mobilized our organization to position our customer for success,” said Chuck Lyles, CEO for GuideIT. “GuideIT is trusted to deliver results in the most demanding of business environments.  Our team consistently converts challenging business objectives into successes for our customers through an agile, flexible and results-oriented approach.”
