Aegis Health Group, the nation's leading healthcare business development company, announces new software to help hospital leaders improve physician relationships, track referral patterns, better manage physician issues, and gain market intelligence. PRISM™, Aegis' proprietary physician relationship management software, is a browser-based database and contact-management program that can be customized to fit the unique needs of each hospital.
PRISM features a unique user-friendly interface that allows physicians or medical office managers to self-report issues using a password-protected link embedded in the hospital's Web site or provided through a standalone link. Hospital leadership can easily track physician issues that require follow-up and resolution and provide ongoing communication with the medical staff.
"As financial pressures mount—for physicians and hospitals—it is more critical than ever that hospitals identify ways to enhance their physician relationships to determine whether they are providing maximum value and solidifying hospital-physician connections and, in turn, identifying barriers to access and increased utilization to drive change in physicians' referral patterns, resulting in additional revenue to the hospital," said Henry Ross, CEO of Aegis Health Group.
"The right physician relationship management software allows hospital leaders to be strategic, organized and consistent in their efforts, which ultimately saves time, money and frustration."
PRISM is available as a standalone product. The physician and office manager issues portal can be customized and integrated into a hospital's existing Web site. Aegis also offers a complete Physician Relationship Management program, which includes a physician relationship specialist who works within the hospital to strategically and accountably enhance medical staff relationships.
