MetaVision enabled LVHN to meet SCIP and PQRS initiatives, and to earn over $1.5M in additional revenue capture, reduced billing service fees, and CMS reimbursements Health Network Profile Lehigh Valley Health Network (LVHN) in Allentown, Pennsylvania, is a leading health network made up of three full-service hospitals, community health centers, community clinics, and home health and hospice services. LVHN has a wide range of expertise, including Level I Trauma, pediatric trauma, neurosurgery, cardiac surgery, renal transplant and more. With 988 beds throughout the network, LVHN treats 66,000 in-patients annually. Lehigh Valley Hospital (LVH) was ranked as one of the nation’s top hospitals in U.S. News & World Report for 2011-12, and has made the national rankings for 16 consecutive years. Lehigh Valley Health Network was designated a “Top Hospital” by the Leapfrog Group for quality care and patient safety. The Need LVHN decided to move from paper charting to an Anesthesia Information Management System (AIMS) in order to realize the many benefits that these systems offer. AIMS improve the legibility, completeness, and accuracy of anesthesia records. They record every detail of diagnoses and treatment throughout the duration of the patient stay, making data available for quality reporting. Further, embedded clinical decision support tools promote adherence to evidence-based best practices and regulations, resulting in increased patient safety. Specifically, LVHN was looking for an Anesthesia Information Management System that would improve quality of care and increase compliance with CMS quality measures. Additionally, the network wanted to identify areas for increasing potential charge capture and billing efficiency. To meet these goals, LVHN needed a system that could be customized to support their specific workflow, both at the time of implementation and in the future.
