Note Form Reporting: Unlock the Value of V11 Data

The Problem

Allscripts TouchWorks™ EHR v11 Notes contain valuable patient data collected by clinicians during each encounter. The data captured is electronically stored in an ambiguous data format (XML), a format that poses a huge challenge when attempting to aggregate patient information for reporting purposes. Now, more than ever, healthcare organizations are obligated to capture and report data on individual patients and populations in order to support quality improvement initiatives related to risk-based contracts. That’s why organizations that utilize TouchWorks™ EHR are looking for unique methods to facilitate simple end-user data collection and uncomplicated reporting and data mining processes.


The Solution

Galen Healthcare Solutions has developed the Note Form Reporting solution to automate the process of extracting and converting the ambiguous TouchWorks EHR v11 Note data into a discrete and reportable format. With Note Form Reporting, our clients have the ability to aggregate any data type that is documented within the TouchWorks EHR v11 Note, including discrete findings, custom (semi-discrete) findings, and even free text. This solution has unlocked a range of innovative solutions for our clients that optimize clinical data capture workflows directly in the Note Authoring Workspace. Organizations that utilize the Note Form Reporting solution have streamlined their efforts to capture and report data related to PCMH certification, HEDIS measurement and improvement, and Chronic Care Management.
