THE PAPERLESS SOLUTION CUSTOMERS HAVE BEEN LOOKING FOR
Embla strives to help customers provide better patient care, and Enterprise is a product that helps meet that commitment. Enterprise was developed to meet customer demands for a pre- to post-study sleep lab management tool that assists sleep labs in achieving and maintaining accreditation, governing work process efficiency, and managing their sleep business overall.
To many customers, Enterprise is the paperless solution they have been looking for. Enterprise is about automating and simplifying workflow, hence customers no longer have to devote precious time to tasks such as gathering statistics for accreditation and business management, or file archiving and document management.
Customers are pleased with being able to adopt a product that was developed for them and with their business in mind. By helping our customers manage their lab workflow and data, they save time and can attend to their most valued customer — the patient.
THE ENTERPRISE FILESERVER AND QUERY MANAGER
Document management functions that assist in scanning or attaching complete patient files in electronic form are a central feature of the product. Sleep parameters have always been published from Embla PSG systems to Enterprise, and customers are very pleased with this new feature that automatically publishes PSG reports to the Enterprise FileServer. Stored in a single location, parameters, outcomes, and documents are easily accessed locally or remotely throughout the entire organization.
Users can easily track referral sources and marketing statistics, thereby keeping them informed on the efficiency of their marketing efforts. The Enterprise Query Manager helps customers with marketing and performance assessment, as well as research efforts. The patient, the study, and the sleep parameter data can be mined with ease to support marketing decisions, assess business outcomes, or answer questions about the patient population. There are many standard reports available and customers can easily create their own templates.
Templates also allow our customers to better communicate with their customers and also to better simplify the process of creating reminder letters, meeting notices, or sleep information documents. These documents, used extensively by our customers, can be populated with database information, saved, shared, and accessed repeatedly. Physicians and lab managers save time by not having to recreate reports, interpretation documents, and other correspondence.
RESPONDING TO SOLUTION DEMANDS & REVOLUTIONIZING PATIENT CARE
We believe there is significant need to revolutionize patient care and patient data management in the sleep medicine field. The increasing awareness of the impact of untreated sleep disorders has meant that the market is experiencing steady growth. The added pressure of competition from the growing number of sleep labs is significant challenge for independent businesses that want to assure the quality and efficiency of their performance, but struggle with workflow and performance issues. To keep pace with the increasing demands of accreditation requirements, there is also a growing need for labs to provide statistics related to their patient population and workflow.
Sleep labs not only want to compete, but they also want to improve their performance; and the demand for solutions that help organize, schedule, and analyze patient information has never been greater. Developed with an emphasis on diagnostic study management, Enterprise is our response to growing management system solution demands, which reinforces and improves workflow, lab scheduling, and quicker access to patient data and related reports and documents.
EXPANDED FEATURES AND FUTURE RELEASES
Embla continues to invest significantly in the Enterprise platform and is working on a Fall 2007 release that includes a questionnaire design tool and additional questionnaire results reports. Customers can also anticipate questionnaire query tools in future releases, which will allow sleep labs and physicians to view patient history and diagnostic information. To make Enterprise a more comprehensive data management system, we also plan to improve and expand on the feature that assists users in importing PSG-related (sleep overview) graphics.
We are committed to customer satisfaction —continuing to evolve a quality product, and striving to be ‘Closer to our Customers’.
