INSURANCE / PAYMENT RELATED FAQ’s
PRODUCT RELATED FAQ’s
For purposes of comparison the Telesis software is broken down into three parts.
- The front end “Tools” section.
- The Middle Section “Start Here” where you Conduct “Real Time” Sessions, Modify protocols etc.
- The back end “Reporting”
The majority of changes-differences between the Telesis & Synergy take place in the front and back ends with very little change being done to the “Real Time” area.
This comes as good news to clinicians as the learning curve to Telesis from Synergy is minimal. The only significant change is that the range adjustment now includes a 25Uv range which is significant as a majority of PF therapists report this range is where most of their patients work.
The front end of the software includes the HIPPA and login credentials for the care providers at the facility.
Synergy does not have HIPPA compliance so this is completely new to the Telesis software.
Users will need to be added to the system as care providers and have their own unique login credentials. Furthermore, locations will also need to be established to provide information of where the patient was seen. Essentially everything that a care provider does while being logged into the system is tracked by the system and stored within the tools section. The tracking tool stores information such as:
- Patient Session
- Dates, times and locations.
- Reports modified
- Screens viewed
- Screens printed
This information can all be displayed between certain date ranges as the auditing authority requests.
Telesis also offers a system set-up tab which sets defaults as where databases and back-ups are stored.
For facilities that have multiple locations or systems within one facility you now have the ability to centralize your databases on a server so you do not need to create multiple patient records.
Patients records can now be created using multiple criteria instead of just the patient name and can be set by the care provider based on the facility needs. Such search criteria include:
- Patient Name
- Unique ID
- Social Security number
- Date of birth
This allows patient records to be searched without identifying any other patients by name while conducting tests.
Also within the system set-up the care provider can set defaults as to how the session reports are displayed and modified.
The reports area is also another area which has gone through a major revamping. Some of the changes are as follows:
- Immediately after a session concludes, the system takes the user to a session graph.
- This graph can now be modified to add, remove or adjust markers.
- Zoom in feature to capture meaningful data.
- Launch additional session directly from the graphic screen
- Toggle between session graphs within the patient visit to make comparisons.
- Multiple Reports are now available to the clinician at the conclusion of the session. These reports include:
- Chart note with updated ICD-10 coding
- EMG Evaluation Report
- Accessory muscle performance evaluation
- Exercise Report complete with patient homework and patient FAQ’s
- Bladder Diary
- Physical Medicine Muscle Performance Measurement Report
- Authorization Letter requesting specific visits
- These reports are not only statistical in nature but also come as narratives which grab information from the sessions conducted.
- The user now has the option to output reports to MS Word or PDF format. The addition of MS Word with Telesis allows the clinician to modify the reports which was not available on Synergy.
PHYSICAL THERAPIST QUESTIONS
Single Patient Use
It is recommended that the patients wash the dilator before and after each use in hot water with detergent and rinse thoroughly. They are to lubricate and insert in vagina as far as possible for 10 minutes each day.
Physical Therapist Use (for training purposes)
If the PT is using a dilator on patients for training purposes, it is recommended that a condom be used for each patient. It is also recommended that the dilator be cleaned with Virex TP by submerging the dilator for at least 3 minutes before and after each use. The Virex TP solution is a hospital grade disinfectant that provides excellent cleaning and deodorizing in one step and meets bloodborne pathogen standards for decontaminating blood and body fluids.
