Statement of Scope and goals
Patton-Fuller Community Hospital is trying to implement a new patient management system in order to service the patient with as pleasant an experience as possible. The Scope- Being able to develop the patient management system to track patient check-in, appointments, and surgery. Benefits- The benefit would be less of a risk and cost efficiency. Cost- the cost will include the process in data materials and supplies. Constraints- Address any problems that may affect the project through the implementation process. Risk- Identify any risk that may occur during or after the project. The Goals of the Project – The goal will be to create documentations for the development of a patient management system. The system should be designed for all patients to be documented confidentially, wait time for procedures should be limited or punctual, and patients should be checked on for security reasons. Supporting Measures for Success
Patton-Fuller Community Hospital needs more unified patient experience and seeks an evaluation for the development of a patient management system to track patient check-ins, appointments, and surgeries. Physical measures are to determine the virtual degree of success, which includes improved reduced wait times, and improved patient satisfaction scores. The RPMS system is a selection of hardware, software, telecommunications components that are designed to work together or independently depending on the specific need (Resource and patient management system, n.d.). The RPMS system not only works within its own resources it also has the capabilities of linking with other software programs to enhance the users experience. The patient management system will benefit the health care providers by allowing them access to all facets of the patient’s current and upcoming visits. The RPMS software has a administrative category is used to put together patient demographics, schedule appointments, check-in patients, discharge patients, and transfer patients to other departments or facilities within the health care system (Resource and patient management system, n.d.). The data captured in this application can be to evaluate and improve quality of patient care (Resource and patient management system, n.d.). The RPMS administrative functions will provide the ability to track supplies and resources through electronic management that could provide substantial cost savings to the organization. The administrative application has the option to create insurance claims, compile manual billings, conduct electronic billing statements, and track accounts receivables making it an efficient investment for the company (Resource and patient management system, n.d.). The RPMS is a system that can grow with the organizations future needs without the need for a complete restructuring of the system. The software applications can be interfaced with a large variety of software programs, the hardware has adaptable scalability, and the networking options are limitless (Resource and patient management system, n.d.). The RPMS offers the ability to meet the demand for quality patient care and options that can improve the overall performance of Fuller-Patton Community Hospital. Senior management will have access to reports on financial aspects and patient care trends in the community. Health care providers can obtain reports on patient status and administrative personnel will have access to billing, account receivable information, and current and historical hospital census data at the click of the key board (Resource and patient management system, n.d.).
