TSI Healthcare Advances Quality of Care with National Record Locator Service
CHAPEL HILL, NC – May 18, 2017 – TSI Healthcare, a national leader in the sales and support of NextGen® Practice Management and Electronic Health Record solutions, announced that it will be among the first EHR vendors in the nation to begin trials of Surescripts® National Record Locator Service, or NRLS network. Through this launch, TSI Healthcare will connect caregivers with more comprehensive, holistic patient insights by facilitating on-demand access to patients’ clinical history.
Systems like the NRLS network build on a long succession of EHR developments, and TSI Healthcare is at the forefront of implementing Surescripts’ latest advancement. As the healthcare industry shifts from a fee-for-service model to a
pay-for-performance model, TSI Healthcare’s deployment of the service will lay the groundwork for what will become a new standard for EHR usage. By allowing providers to exchange patient information through the NRLS network, TSI Healthcare ensures physicians can provide the next level of quality patient care.
The NRLS network leverages Surescripts’ established infrastructure to grant medical professionals a comprehensive insight into their patients’ medical histories. With access to 230 million patient records and 4 billion caregiving interactions, practitioners will be able to learn more about prior care experiences and tailor treatment accordingly. These tools also streamline the process of identifying previous patient visit locations and requesting relevant clinical records.
TSI Healthcare providers stand to gain many benefits from the company’s proactive stance on the NRLS adoption. By supporting this integration, the company is helping practitioners utilize national data repositories and share their knowledge of vital case information. With the ability to learn from more accurate care histories, TSI Healthcare clients will be able to decrease the incidence of medical errors while providing more informed care. Providers part of the
TSI Healthcare family will be at the forefront of delivering high quality patient care as required under MACRA (The Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act of 2015).
“Our partnership with NextGen and the Surescripts NRLS network will prove vital to helping our clients reach new levels of success,” said David Dickson, Jr., TSI Healthcare’s President and CEO. “This leading edge service highlights our dedication to establishing efficient and useful connections between our clients and practitioners throughout the nation.”
