States have responded to the dangers that frontline healthcare workers face in the fight against COVID-19 with a system of rigorous testing aimed at early identification of the COVID-19 virus among nurses, doctors and other healthcare workers. This means a drastic increase in the volume of test requisition forms that need to be processed on a periodic basis.
This standard testing process not only helps protect our healthcare workers but it is equally essential to prevent the further spread of the virus as infected healthcare workers can accidentally pass on the virus while tending to non-COVID-19 patients or their family members.
As regular testing becomes the norm nationwide, we need creative solutions to manage the increased flow of tests and the corresponding paperwork. The samples collected are accompanied by test requisition forms that contain the respective healthcare worker’s name, patient demographic details along with medical insurance and other extremely crucial details.
These forms are in large volumes and need to be processed swiftly and accurately with greater accountability for accurate reporting. Since processing these forms can put an additional burden on already stressed systems, the situation calls for collaborative solutions. Partnering with a trustworthy healthcare outsourcing partner can relieve you of labor-intensive and time-consuming tasks like extracting data from COVID-19 test requisitions forms in order to streamline and accelerate these fluctuating processes.
Here’s how ARDEM works as your partner to process and deliver essential data from test requisition forms to build successful COVID solutions:
The COVID-19 Response
As testing becomes more rigorous in the battle against COVID-19, laboratories and health service providers are looking for more efficient test requisition form processing services.
Many health departments and nursing homes are now preparing facility-wide testing, drive-through testing, building testing tents, and more. Great care is put into preparing and collecting test samples and coordinating with laboratories to ensure the fastest cycle time to report test results and limit transmission. ARDEM provides COVID-19 solutions to process demographic information and COVID-19 test requisition forms in real-time for immediate results.
As far as test-requisition forms for healthcare workers is concerned, we realize the need to protect our COVID warriors and ensure that infected workers do not spread the virus further. So, whether you are a hospital looking for administrative support as you test your staff or a biotech company with testing facilities, we can handle all your forms, processing and delivering high-quality data in real-time:
At-Home Testing Kits
To properly vet and clear your personnel during the time of a raging pandemic means adopting new ways and different methods of testing. While testing on a wide scale is going on in special tents and at temporary testing shelters, another smart way of curtailing the infection involves online consultation along with delivering and collecting test samples and paperwork from home.
Similarly, many hospitals and healthcare centers also prefer to test their personnel at home. Even these samples require accompanying data records that must be filled in to identify the sample and matching source. Once these forms are collected, they need to be processed accurately in the specified order and delivered well before the lab starts testing the samples.
Faster processing further allows these tests to be conducted in a swift and efficient manner, providing greater accuracy and accountability throughout the testing process. All you need to do is fax or email us the forms collected and we will aggregate and process the data collected, extracting and mapping out relevant data. This data is then shared with the client or directly uploaded into their database. Accuracy is vital to the process as it helps the company or healthcare provider to send the right physical testing kits to the right people and process the samples received for a swift and efficient diagnosis.
Test Requisition Management
We realize the extreme importance of time throughout the entire cycle of sample collection, testing, diagnosis and treatment. That is why we manage your project as a priority.
Once we receive the test requisition forms, they are immediately entered into our processing cycle and are delivered well in advance.
As the testing of healthcare workers is implemented as a uniform policy among hospitals and clinics across states, we match our stride with the expanding demands for test requisition processing. Get in touch with us to schedule a free consultation to discuss your processing requirements.
Real-Time Processing: At ARDEM, we are already working with healthcare partners to process and deliver data from test requisition forms in real-time. Data from all forms is processed in real-time for immediate results that are entered directly into your system.
Once we have ascertained your needs, the first batch of forms is processed and released within 12 hours to ensure that the requisite paperwork reaches the relevant laboratory or testing centers.
As the onboarding begins, ARDEM takes stock of your needs and defines a processing frequency that matches your requirements. We further do our best to kick-start your processing as soon as possible, and all final output is further delivered in line with the predefined frequency and quality standards.
Ensured Accuracy in Test Requisition Form Processing
When we talk about effective diagnosis and treatment, time and accuracy are both equally important.
While processing test requisition forms swiftly, let us not forget that all relevant data also has to be extracted with the greatest possible care for greater accuracy and accountability.
We implement double-key data entry with compare checks and validation checks that yield close to 100% accurate data. Our advanced automation offerings, including automated data capture, further reduces manual errors and speeds up your process considerably. Additionally, as your processing requirements expand, they help us scale operations as we allocate more bots to process the increased volume of incoming forms.
Compliance and Security
At ARDEM, we’re an ISO27001 certified data entry company and experts at keeping your data secure.
HIPAA, PCI, PHI and PII compliances are met while entering, processing and sharing data for patient data security. We know that one of the biggest concerns while outsourcing healthcare processes is the fear of data theft or breach. While your fears are completely justified, it is important to note that outsourcing companies are equally serious about this threat and employ a series of security measures to secure confidential data.
At ARDEM, we recognize that with data security comes great responsibility, and that’s exactly why we practice ISO27001- this addresses security at 3 main levels: Physical, Network, and Employee. Furthermore, standard practices for us include VPNs, SSLs, encryption protocols during file transfer and at rest.
Apart from our security compliances and protocols, we are also extremely careful about who we expose your data to. In terms of our data entry services, access to sensitive data is strictly on a need-to-know basis, and we have measures in place that ensure that your data cannot be moved, saved, edited, or seen by unauthorized team members.
We started 16 years, working as a U.S. Federal Government contractor and therefore we can state with assurance that we know data security. We can actually go on about security for days. Contact our team and sign an NDA for more information.
