Knoxville, TN (PRWEB) June 21, 2013
BMS Practice Solutions (BMS), the most tenured and experienced Revenue Cycle Management company serving independently owned outpatient rehab practices, has formed a new partnership with Focus on Therapeutic Outcomes, Inc. (FOTO). This partnership will integrate FOTO’s patient assessments into BMS’ EMR RevFlow technology, thereby creating greater efficiency with patient medical records.
“By partnering with FOTO and integrating their service with our RevFlow technology, we are giving our clients a more efficient way of entering patient demographics, accessing patient clinical outcomes.”
FOTO is the leader in outcomes measurement for the outpatient rehab industry. Based in Knoxville, Tenn., FOTO is a comparative outcomes reporting service that provides risk-adjusted, nationally benchmarked reports for outpatient rehabilitation providers.
“BMS is dedicated to helping its clients adhere to the changes in the healthcare industry that directly affect rehab practice owners,” stated BMS Practice Solutions CEO John Wallace, PT, MS, OCS. “By partnering with FOTO and integrating their service with our RevFlow technology, we are giving our clients a more efficient way of entering patient demographics, accessing patient clinical outcomes assessments and entering that data into our EMR and reporting data for Physician Quality Report System (PQRS) and Functional Limitation Reporting.”
BMS’ RevFlow technology will integrate with FOTO to provide clients with assessments to measure patient outcomes. Patient data will sync with the RevFlow EMR, and therapists will have the option to use FOTO to determine functional range and to report PQRS information to CMS.
