How Vozo EHR’s Workflow Automation Redefined Doctor-Patient Time in a Rural Family Practice
Spending quality time with patients is a cornerstone of providing excellent medical care, yet many physicians find themselves bogged down with administrative tasks that cut into that precious interaction.
This was the case for one of our clients, a family physician practicing in rural Iowa who was frustrated with her electronic health records (EHR) system and its inefficient workflows. However, the implementation of Vozo EHR and its workflow automation tools transformed her practice.
Her administrative tasks related to the clinic's old EHR system consumed up to 2 hours per provider per day. We outline how the deployment of Vozo Health's EHR helped Family Health Center reclaim time and reconnect with patients.
Accelerating Clinical Documentation
A major pain point was the slow process of taking notes during patient visits. Doctors had to navigate multiple template screens, manually input structured data, and transcribe lengthy free text notes post-visit.
By leveraging Vozo’s conversational voice-powered documentation with behind-the-scenes decision support, note completion time was cut by 62% freeing up 15-20 minutes per visit.
Streamlining Prescription Management
The outdated EHR needed more electronic prescription capabilities coupled with an inefficient paper process. Vozo’s seamless e-scripting shaved off 10 minutes per visit spent hunting down pad prescriptions and forms to then later fax to pharmacies.
Alerts on potential interactions and duplications further enhanced medication safety. Increasing Rooming and Discharge Efficiencies
Nurses saved 5-8 minutes per patient with Vozo’s customizable patient summary dashboards, intelligent form autofill, and one-click order set templates during rooming. They also minimized discharge delays by efficiently completing instructions, referrals, e-scripts, and patient education from a single actionable workflow.
In total, Vozo’s intelligent workflows helped providers regain 60-90 minutes daily to focus on delivering quality care. That translated to 12-15 more patients supervised per provider per week - an over 20% boost in capacity with no need to expand staffing.
Just as importantly, docs are no longer going home with lingering charts.
Automation Without Hassle
Vozo EHR streamlined documentation, billing, prescription refills, and other clerical processes through its intuitive interface and automated features. This meant spending less time clicking through screens and sorting through drop-down menus and more time listening to patients.
With customizable templates and shortcuts as well as automated data transfers between applications, Vozo EHR reduced the burden of EHR use. Our client and her staff were freed from manually entering information multiple times for different forms.
The system also simplified prescription management with an automated refill request process and ePrescribing. Lab orders, referrals, and messaging with specialists were all handled seamlessly through Vozo EHR without having to navigate between multiple systems.
The accessibility from any device allowed the client to complete tasks effortlessly whether working at her office, the hospital, or remotely. With more efficient workflows, she expanded patient slots and provided more same-day appointments.
