Optum Reviews & Overview

What is Optum?

Optum Physician EMR is a web-based EMR solution that guarantees users will meet their meaningful use requirements. Optum Physician EMR will even suspend subscription payments until their clients get their stimulus payments. The solution helps clinical practices get faster reimbursements of their bills and helps them in the process of correcting bills and lodging appeals. With a firm focus on the fundamental economics of practices and on patient care, Optum Physician EMR promises to take practices to the next level in efficiency.

Key Features

Optum Physician EMR promises rapid deployment and improved productivity via its cloud-based EMR solution. Optum Physician offers related solutions that can be used as standalone or in coordination with each other to provide basic to advanced capabilities. The Optum Physician EMR comes in two versions, the main EMR and an Optum Physician EMR Lite version with a simpler workflow that may be better suited for small facilities. Both solutions are fully certified for meaningful use.

The solution meets all requirements of traditional EMR packages; it also provides clinics with an integrated referral management solution through a national database. It enables federally qualified health centers access to advanced health information and IT systems. This ensures even better health care at a lower cost. Physicians find the solution is intuitive and easy to use. Getting patient charts, meeting prescription refill requirements, e-prescriptions, asking for and viewing lab results are made easy with a simple, yet comprehensive dashboard.

The patient portal is comprehensive, easy to use and provides patients with all the information they require. Timely reminders ensure patients do not miss their appointments, thereby improving both patient care and clinics’ patient throughput. On-line forms capture all essential data before patients come to the clinic, ensuring they do not waste time in waiting rooms.

Optum Physician EMR can be used in conjunction with Optum Practice Management software to give a complete practice management solution. Users also have the option of using GE Centricity as their practice management solution.
