May 17, 2019 — Digital healthcare company Murj announced the availability of the Murj Analytics software-as-a-service (SaaS) platform for cardiac implantable electronic device (CIED) management. This new offering features powerful intelligence for cardiac device clinicians seeking to provide comprehensive population management through improved clinical, workforce and quality of care metrics.
Until Murj, clinicians had limited visibility into the device patient population and clinic operations. This lack of visibility led to care below desired standards, missed billing opportunities and overburdened staff, according to the company. Clinicians can now rely on Murj Analytics to deliver newfound insights for improved clinic management and patient care.
Murj is in use by clinicians across the country to receive, review and document more than 350,000 CIED transmissions in the past two years. Murj Analytics leverages this data store to uncover trends, associations, burdens and opportunities for each Murj clinic. At launch, Murj Analytics will be comprised of multiple modules categorized as follows:
Patient Care and Population Management
Patient care modules provide awareness of population dynamics such as device mix, manufacturer mix and care modality. And, to drive improvements in population health and superior clinical efficiency, Murj reveals care burden metrics by device class and type, even down to the individual patient.
Quality of Care and Billing Optimization
Murj automates adherence to the Heart Rhythm Society (HRS) recommended standards of device care and the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) approved billing intervals, reducing the need for clinic staff to understand complex reimbursement rules. Murj automatically adjusts dates of service to the allowable CMS windows or even to customer-defined care windows. This care interval intelligence can enable measurement of clinical performance against care goals, reduce payor rejection, significantly increase documented evidence of care compliance and improve reimbursement capture.
Clinic management modules give clinicians comprehensive views into staffing workloads and productivity. This understanding of data and reporting burdens, combined with velocity metrics, can lead to workforce planning optimization and identify training and performance gaps.
“Murj is our investment in the future, and it is already paying dividends,” said Nicole Tibbs, RN, Butler Health System. “Murj Analytics gives us the insights we need to streamline clinic operations, reduce the burden on our staff, grow our practice and deliver outstanding patient care with confidence.”
