Just Associates completed several projects at this multi-facility Children's medical center, including testing and data integration consulting services surrounding the implementation of Initiate with their Epic system. Children's had previously used Initiate's Aligndex product and converted from it to Initiate 7.0. We assisted Children's in trouble-shooting several significant issues surrounding the data conversion and helped to improve the configuration of Initiate's algorithm for use in a pediatric facility.
EMPI Cleanup Services - Our staff identified possible duplicate records that were created during the EMPI conversion. Research for validity verification was completed in numerous systems including: Epic, Initiate, SoftMed, TPA and Physical Records.
HIM Departmental Operations Assessment - We performed an overall operations assessment which provided numerous recommendations for process improvements.
EMPI Management - We developed and implemented a process for EMPI maintenance including managing duplicate records, training EMPI management staff, defining job descriptions and qualifications for EMPI management, assessing duplicate record creation patterns and causes, and creating reporting mechanisms regarding patterns and causes of MPI data integrity issues. We also furnished assistance with the definition of a new role for an EMPI analyst and provided associated training.
