QuadraMed Strikes Partnership with Q-Matic Corporation to Enhance Patient Self-Service

QuadraMed® Corporation today announced that it has signed an agreement with Q-Matic Corporation (Qmatic), the global leader in Customer Flow Management, to offer health systems self-service technology that manages patient flow before, during, and after a patient visit. The Qmatic solution helps healthcare organizations improve the patient experience with shorter, more informative wait times, and operational efficiency through better resource management. The solution will be offered by QuadraMed through its partnership agreement, which will further expand the patient experience and self-service capabilities QuadraMed delivers through its enterprise Access Management suite.

QuadraMed’s Access Management suite ensures the correct identification of the right patient before care is rendered, efficient scheduling of complex appointments across the enterprise, and offers innovative Enterprise Self-Service solutions that create the most convenient experience possible for patients. Patients can easily check themselves in for service, verify demographic and insurance information, complete forms, make payments, and schedule appointments—all from a point-of-service device such as a kiosk or online. The result—immediate benefits for patients and staff, and a significant boost to an organization’s bottom line.

With Qmatic, patient flow is managed. The process begins when patients check in using a registration point-of-service device and are placed in the appropriate service queue. Patients are informed of their estimated wait time and can track their status on monitors strategically placed for easy viewing, or with text messages that eliminate restrictive waiting in designated locations. Providing patients the means to monitor their progress promotes a relaxed environment with a controlled and fair waiting process. Additionally, Qmatic technology allows staff members to electronically track patients in queue, call them for service, and transfer them to other queues or departments. This ensures that patients are efficiently routed through the organization following check in. Qmatic technology seamlessly ensures that the right patient is routed to the right place at the right time.

“Qmatic strives to create remarkable experiences for healthcare organizations and give time back to the patients and healthcare professionals who use our solutions,” said Thomas Sareyko, CEO of Qmatic’s United States and Canada subsidiaries. “We’re excited about our partnership with QuadraMed, which will enable us to now offer integration with patient access, identity management, and revenue cycle management solutions and further enhance the healthcare experience for providers and patients.”

“Patient-facing self-service is crucial to building loyalty in today’s competitive healthcare industry, as consumers demand the convenience and choice that the technology offers,” said Duncan W. James, QuadraMed president and CEO. “The collaboration of Qmatic and QuadraMed will transform the healthcare visit by placing more focus on the patient without adding unnecessary burden on registration staff, resulting in increased operational efficiency and improved patient satisfaction.”

Both SaaS vendors and SaaS buyers are going “all-in” to hyperscale IaaS platforms such as AWS, which is disrupting the SaaS value proposition. Why should the enterprise SaaS consumer pay for the SaaS service if their data is resident in adjacent AWS S3 buckets? If both SaaS sellers and buyers are using the same cloud tools, automation and pay-per-transaction model offered by IaaS platforms, then why not host the “shrink-wrapped” software in the customers’ cloud?

You know you need the cloud, but you’re hesitant to simply dump everything at Amazon since you know that not all workloads are suitable for cloud. You know that you want the kind of ease of use and scalability that you get with public cloud, but your applications are architected in a way that makes the public cloud a non-starter. You’re looking at private cloud solutions based on hyperconverged infrastructure, but you’re concerned with the limits inherent in those technologies.
Today we can collect lots and lots of performance data. We build beautiful dashboards and even have fancy query languages to access and transform the data. Still performance data is a secret language only a couple of people understand.

They have a question on their mind like “How is my application doing” but no id...

It’s the new “must have” in the hybrid era. Users want capabilities that give them a unified view of the data to get closer to customers and grow business. The...
The current age of digital transformation means that IT organizations must adapt their toolset to cover all digital experiences, beyond just the end users’. Today’s businesses can no longer focus solely on the digital interactions they manage with employees or customers; they must now contend with non-traditional factors.

It is ironic, but perhaps not unexpected, that many organizations who want the benefits of using an Agile approach to deliver software use a waterfall approach to adopting Agile practices: they form plans, they set milestones, and they measure progress by how many teams they have engaged. Old habits die hard, but like most waterfall software projects, most waterfall-style Agile adoption efforts fail to produce the results desired. The problem is that to get the results they want, they have to ch...
IoT solutions exploit operational data generated by Internet-connected smart “things” for the purpose of gaining operational insight and producing “better outcomes” (for example, create new business models, eliminate unscheduled maintenance, etc.). The explosive proliferation of IoT solutions will result in an exponential growth in the volume of IoT data, precipitating significant Information Governance issues: who owns the IoT data, what are the rights/duties of IoT solutions adopters towards t...
Wooed by the promise of faster innovation, lower TCO, and greater agility, businesses of every shape and size have embraced the cloud at every layer of the IT stack – from apps to file sharing to infrastructure. The typical organization currently uses more than a dozen sanctioned cloud apps and will shift more than half of all workloads to the cloud by 2018. Such cloud investments have delivered measurable benefits. But they’ve also resulted in some unintended side-effects: complexity and risk. ...
With the introduction of IoT and Smart Living in every aspect of our lives, one question has become relevant: What are the security implications?

The material was delivered interac...
The taxi industry never saw Uber coming.

In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Don Browning, VP of Cloud Architecture at Turner, posited that disruption is inevitable for comp...
