OPTUMHEALTH SHOWS OFF NEW TOOLS FOR PHYSICIANS

TMA leaders and I made a trip to cold Minnesota to see OptumHealth’s state-of-the-art technology center and its analytic tools for helping physicians manage their practices and improve quality of care. Austin Regional Clinic CEO Norm Chenven, MD; former TMA Council on Practice Management Services Chair David Fleeger, MD; and Bridget McPhillips, TMA’s vice president for membership and business development, joined me in examining Optum’s electronic health record decision-support tools as well as products physicians can use for revenue cycle management. The visit is part of our project to identify the best tools for physicians to keep their practices viable in today’s rapidly changing health care environment.
