Qualitative Characteristics of ePraxis™

Some of the qualitative characteristics are:

Search and Selection of a Doctor’s Available Consultation Openings

With a push of a button a list of Available Consultation Openings for a specific Doctor is accomplished. The subsystem Vardion™ that is responsible for the organization and management of the Personnel Shifts assists behind the scenes in such operations. In addition this automatic procedure will also find and display a list of available openings based on the Time Length for the medical services to be offered during the consultation.

Holidays, Absences and Personnel Off Shift hours appear on the Visit Schedules of ePraxis™. These time periods are locked and thus do not allow anyone to schedule a visit or meeting.

Daily and Weekly Time Schedulers offer great flexibility and ease of use for the Reception or Call Center Personnel maximizing patient care.

Optimized Visit Sessions

In general terms each physician may define and manage the duration of a consultation based on his/her experience. Well… Not any more!

“Treatments in ePraxis™ are now predefined in terms of a general Time Duration based on past experience and widely accepted by the physicians in the medical community”.

In order to book a consultation in ePraxis™ it is necessary to register the “Scheduled Treatments” to be performed off hand.

“The accumulated time duration of these scheduled treatments will define the visit duration and not the physician or his/her assistant!”

In the adverse event of disagreement between Medical Staff and the management of the Medical center the above mentioned procedure might be deactivated through the use of parametric switches in the general setup module PxSetup™.

Quality Control in Medical Services being Offered

At the end of each consultation the treating physician is obliged to “Confirm” the medical services offered. Under normal conditions the “confirmed” medical services must coincide with the “Scheduled Treatments” registered previously during the visit booking procedure.

Frequent checks and comparisons on the above mentioned data allows the management to assess the degree of Service Quality offered to its Patients and in some cases to take any remedy actions required to streamline the center’s operations.

Creating Treatment Plans Fast and Efficiently

The Treatment Plan is based on a number of combinations of medical treatments that may be performed based on a specific diagnosis that the doctor in charge is required to select. The development for such a treatment plan is quite time-consuming process that also depends on the medical specialty.

“In ePraxis™ we have introduced the correlation between a Diagnosis and a Set of Possible Medical Treatments based on Past Experience.”

During a medical examination, the doctor through the design capacity of ePraxis™ is able to select a diagnosis and automatically receive a list of recommended medical treatments. The doctor’s experience is sufficient to choose one of them and thus save beneficial clinical time.

With the touch of a button the medical examiner may delegate the proposed medical treatments to various other colleagues.

Auto Correlating a Treatment Plan, a Medical Offer and Payment Procedures

A Medical Examiner who created a Treatment Plan may now at a push of a button create and present a Medical Offer to the Patient. During this procedure visits are scheduled and treating physicians are assigned.

After the offer acceptance by the patient the procedural scenarios for the completion of a Treatment Plan are numerous and sometimes troublesome. They also depend on the rules and regulations set by the management of the medical center or insurance body.

A possible scenario might be that the offer price is too high for a one-time payment and you along with the patient agreed to initiate monthly installments. Let us also assume that the rules of the medical center are such that do not allow the continuation of the treatment unless a particular monthly installment has already being paid. Let’s make our scenario a bit more complex! For some reason the Patient receives and agrees to a second treatment plan while the first one is still active. Yes, as you have guessed the payment for the second treatment plan has also to be spread over monthly installments! It is only logical to assume that the patient at this stage might ask for a global solution that adds the two offers into one and renegotiate the monthly installments.

At this point we do not need to see your …face! Instead we will describe the steps that ePraxis™ uses to see through the above complex scenario.

As you may have noticed the above 5 steps may be repeated until the end of time!

Differential Invoicing with One and Only One Price Catalogue!

How is it possible for one to accomplish the task of Differential Invoicing with one and only one price list catalogue to different groups of patients and/or insured members?

"Simply Makes Use of ePraxis™ !"

We have developed a proprietary mathematical relation that uses one price list and mapping procedures between different groups of patients and treatments offered to accomplish the task of Differential Invoicing. We would be happy to meet with you to present this concept and how may be applied to your daily operations.

The Unbreakable Stock Control Procedures in ePraxis™

The PxSupplier™ module was designed for Stock Control and Purchasing Procedures in such a way that minimizes the risk for ill conditioned purchases and under the table deals! In addition the database tables are designed in such a way that even the Database Administrator is not able to intervene into the data itself without crashing the program! If the above statement did not convinced you, we would be happy to demonstrate the program to your satisfaction.

The PxSupplier™ Design Philosophy is based on the following 6 cornerstones that stem out from our experience with Greek National Hospitals where in the past 6 years some two billion euro have disappeared through various “magic ways” that we are aware of.

In brief, the personnel may request sales items from different suppliers. Upon management approval, the process of creating separate orders to different suppliers is performed automatically by the program. The quantity ordered is also calculated automatically and depends on the quantity requested, already in stock as well as the one expected. All is left is to fax or mail the orders. The process of registering deliveries, packing slips and invoices is done with almost zero typing. During the whole process, embedded control points make sure that nobody meshes with stock control and mistakes are avoided.

Auto Correlation between Work Units and Cost Centers

The embedded rules in our business model, (C.B.M.™), allow the use of an Organizational Plan that divides the company into:

  1. Directorates,
  2. Sections,
  3. Work Places and
  4. Work Units.

A Work Place is in fact a physical enclosure that has 4 walls and at least 1 door in a building at different geographical locations. A Work Unit is a physical place within a Work Place where an employee may perform any task. Multiple Work Units may be located within one Work Place.

“A Work Unit may encounter Expenses and possibly produce some Income that automatically relate to a Cost Center”

Through this design philosophy, a Cost Center or Work Unit registers expenses and possible income. In addition the expenses and any possible income are registered in relation to an employee and a client/patient.

That Simple!
