We are excited to announce the pilot program release for Alpha Nodus. Continue reading to see if your practice would be a good fit for our pilot release.
What is Alpha Nodus?
Alpha Nodus is a software subscription program that allows doctors and clinicians to pre-predict the availability of critical resources like employees, equipment, patients and space, with utmost precision. Our dynamic scheduler then makes changes to the clinical schedule in real-time, reducing bottlenecks and maximizing efficiency.
Our technology combines asset tracking with analytics, artificial intelligence and automatic communication to bring efficiency and precision to running your practice.
Increase Provider and Patient Satisfaction
First, Alpha Nodus transforms manual, time-consuming workflow scheduling processes like room availability, staff and doctor scheduling into an automatic process based on real-time data collected from the facility. The issues with manual scheduling are that the clinician does not always know the whereabouts of the nurse or doctor, or if they are running behind or how long they are running behind. This leads to backlog for scheduling and increases wait times for patients.
Ask yourself these questions – how much time do you spend scheduling staff and room availability? Have you ever had patients upset at how long they waited? How do you think patients feel about this experience? Do you think they will leave a positive review?
Alpha Nodus asset trackers collect information on staff whereabouts in real-time, feeding this information into the analytics dashboard, then pulls the analytics into an artificial intelligence platform that schedules patients and staff according to actual current availability. The platform then sends automatic messages to the staff if the patient is running late and how far away they are. Say goodbye to clunky, manual scheduling tools and switch to an automatic scheduler that delivers a high-quality patient and staff experience through predictability and efficiency.
Lost revenue due to Inefficiencies
Second, traditional scheduling methods lead to inefficiencies and bottlenecks in workflow, which leads to lost revenue. Manual scheduling processes take into account general procedure times, general whereabouts of staff and equipment, but this process doesn’t take into account procedures or patients that could take longer, patients showing up late to their appointments, actual equipment location or real-time staff whereabouts. This leads to bottlenecks in workflow where patients sit in patient rooms for long periods of time, waiting for the doctor or staff to check on them. Revenue is lost during this time when doctors and staff could be seeing more patients or utilizing their resources to their full capacity.
Automating this process according to real-time availability of resources and staff means that staff are able to schedule patients and resources according to what is precisely available at what time, maximizing workflow efficiency for the practice and increasing revenue, because the facility is able to see more patients.
Eliminate wait times
Third, Alpha Nodus reduces wait times for patients, further providing a better patient experience. As a doctor and caregiver, and with the new MACRA guidelines going into effect in 2018, you want to make sure you are providing a high-quality patient experience that patients want to come back to. Imagine if you could reduce wait times from 60 minutes to 5 minutes or less, with the majority of the time the patient is in the office they are seeing the doctor, rather than waiting. Do you know how much time each patient spends waiting, and what percentage of their time is actually spent undergoing the procedure and/or seeing the doctor?
This is the future that Alpha Nodus brings to you. Our technology collects data from the clinic in real-time, and sends auto messages from the clinic to the patient on the day of their appointment to let the patient know the exact time they should arrive to see the doctor, reducing downtime in the facility and reducing wait times for the patient.
