Augmedix Launches New Service, Augmedix Prep, to Significantly Reduce Physician Chart Prep Burden
Augmedix, a provider of automated medical documentation solutions, has announced the launch of Augmedix Prep, a new service that significantly reduces the burden on medical staff from preparing charts prior to a patient visit.
The new service features specialized technology that prepares a patient note structure and content for the physician based on the unique visit type and the patient’s previous medical records. Typically, physicians need to do this before they see a patient, but with Augmedix Prep, all the provider needs to do is review the prepared information before seeing the patient. This allows them to enter the visit ready to engage with the patient.
“Augmedix is on a mission to remove the barriers to care that frustrate both physicians and patients,” said the company’s CEO, Manny Krakaris. “Augmedix Prep is a significant value-add service that reduces the administrative burden exacerbating clinician burnout.”
Augmedix Prep is designed to address some of the most significant issues facing healthcare providers today, including reducing their overall workload, which can help mitigate clinician burnout and improve satisfaction, as well as allowing time back to focus on patients.
Augmedix Prep captures valuable information such as patient demographics, medication changes, up-to-date medical history, imaging, labs and diagnostic results, immunization history, and past medical, family, and social history.
At its core, chart prep is a time-consuming administrative task that can negatively impact the patient encounter. Augmedix believes that by completing charting work prior to patient encounters, the physician will be better prepared and will offer more time in their schedule for delivering care, resulting in improved patient and provider experience and increasing patient satisfaction.
