Introducing Veradigm Solutions for Practice Fusion Customers

Administrative burden is challenging the practice of medicine

The administrative burden medical practices are facing is a growing challenge, many physicians are burnt out and pessimistic about the future of medicine, and independent physician practices are disappearing slowly. The promise and value of digitizing healthcare is falling short of expectations. For example, more than 100 million medical record requests are made to healthcare providers annually and 90% of those are exchanged via manual methods such as traditional paper or analog fax.1

What if your practice didn’t have to take staff away from patient care to respond to chart requests? One study found an estimated $248 billion dollars in wasted U.S. healthcare spending attributed solely to administrative complexity in a single year.2 Help is on the way for Practice Fusion customers. Veradigm eChart Courier™ has been developed with the goal of eliminating manual chart reviews conducted by select health plans.
