How Kelsey-Seybold's Digital Records System Can Save You Money

Posted by Paula Turnquist

Using an innovative, coordinated care model, Kelsey-Seybold is able to provide exceptionally high-quality healthcare to subscribers, with up to 20 percent comparative cost savings for employers.

In fact, the plan has regularly been acknowledged as the most cost-effective in the Greater Houston market by an independent, third-party benchmarking study.

So just how do we provide high-end care at relatively little cost? One of our strategies is to eliminate unnecessary waste. We make sure that each member of a patient's medical team — primary care physician, specialist, pharmacist, etc. — is able to communicate easily and efficiently and view any relevant past medical information. To facilitate this communication, Kelsey-Seybold uses a sophisticated, secure Electronic Medical Record (EMR) system.

KC-Blog-Featured-Sept1Simply sharing a subscriber's comprehensive medical file across our extensive provider network can save enormous time and expense, which is good for both employers and employees. Kelsey-Seybold member Irma Meadows shared with us how the EMR saved her money.

"My doctors can see everything at one time. For example, when I went to Dr. Anup Shah for shoulder surgery, I needed some blood work and the laboratory was right there," Meadows says. "Then later, I had an appointment with my gynecologist who said she didn't have to order blood work because she saw on my EMR that Dr. Shah had already done so. I didn't have to re-do the same test and pay another copay. So, the EMR definitely cuts down on repetitive testing and cost."
